Global Dentistry Additive Manufacturing Report 2021 - Comprehensive Dental 3D Printing Hardware and Materials Guide -

The "Additive Manufacturing in Dentistry 2021" report has been added to's offering.

Previously one of the most stable and fast-growing opportunities for 3D printing technologies, in 2020 the dental 3D printing market was thrown into upheaval by the global coronavirus pandemic and resulting health response.

Although the rest of the additive manufacturing industry has also been thrown into temporary chaos along with the global manufacturing economy in general -the dental industry in early 2020 has been especially negatively impacted due to acute government restrictions discouraging, or outright prohibiting, non-emergency dental care.

The sixth edition of Additive Manufacturing in Dentistry market study shows a resilient market opportunity, however, with a quick bounce-back recovery already well underway. Though the key to a return to growth in 2021 hinges on new approaches to restricting healthcare services by government entities as the pandemic continues longer than originally expected, this latest short term outlook anticipates dental printing market revenues will return to growth in the coming year - but powered by slightly shifting trends.

The report has provided annual studies into the evolving opportunities in dental 3D printing since 2014, making this the longest-running dedicated research study for professionals in the dental industry available. The latest edition of the report focuses on analyzing the market under the current pandemic-related conditions and providing realistic short-term market recovery forecasts, combined with an analysis of the longer-term shifts in dental consumer behavior resulting from COVID-19 which could impact demand for dental 3D printing solutions.

In addition to an extensive written analysis of the changing market dynamics, dental industry stakeholders who purchase the study also receive the most extensive database of dental 3D printing market opportunity and forecast data available, updated for the changes resulting from the ongoing pandemic impacts and expected market recovery timeline.
