Global Industry Analysts just released a report stating that the dental lab industry will grow to 14 and half billion dollars by 2015. It is the dental lab that is responsible for making the dental prosthetics and appliances, from crowns to implant dentures. They cite the rise in revenue to aging global populations, the spending power of the aging demographic and the increasing availability of better dental aesthetics, like veneers. According to the report the US has the biggest market share of the dental lab business. The report looks at the US market as well as Latin America, Europe, Japan and Asia Pacific. While not mentioned in the release one could imagine that the emerging economies and increased consumer spending of China and India would also be responsible for growth.
