European dental market shows minor growth

HONG KONG/LEIPZIG, Germany/GÜMLIGEN-BERNE, Switzerland: The 2009 dental market report released by the Association of Dental Dealers in Europe (ADDE) has indicated a slight increase of 0.6 per cent of total sales in the European dental market. According to the new statistics, sundries sales in the EU increased by 1.5 per cent, while complete equipment sales declined by 2 per cent. Metal implants saw the biggest increase with 7 per cent.

The results are on par with national statistics. Germany, for example, which has the biggest dental market in Europe with a volume of €3.8 billion, reported a slight increase in figures in 2007 but with declining trends in the domestic market. The Italian market, which was worth €1.1 billion in 2007, has seen growth rates drop from almost 10 per cent to 5 per cent despite an overall increase in production.

The ADDE market report has also revealed that the number of practising dentists in Europe has remained at 268,000, while the number of dental labs is declining. Furthermore, the usage of computers in practices continues to grow for both administrative and in-surgery activities, the report states. The number of new dental chairs installed in 2008 increased by 2.7 per cent.

The ADDE market report is published annually in collaboration with the Federation of the European Dental Industry. It aims to indicate trends in the European dental market over a period of five years. The 2009 report, which was presented at IDS Cologne in March, included figures from 15 countries, covering 2004 to 2008. The report will be available at the ADDE main office in Switzerland.
