Dental implant is a procedure that replaces roots of a tooth. Implants provide a strong foundation for removable or fixed replacement teeth that are made to match natural teeth. Titanium is the most commonly used alloy for dental implantation. It has offers superior physicochemical characteristics, mechanical properties, high resistance, and biocompatibility. However, titanium leads to bone resorption, implant fracture, and stress shielding. Polyether ether ketone (PEEK) is a high crystalline thermoplastic polymer with many clinical advantages over titanium and other dental metals. It is used as an alternative material for dental implants as it causes low hypersensitivity and fewer allergic reactions.
Furthermore, it eliminates any metallic taste or temperature changes caused by drinking and eating. It is a natural polymer and non-contrasting in color, which makes it look more natural in the patient’s mouth. Bioactive materials are coated and blended with a PEEK dental implants to increase their osseoconductive properties and surface roughness. Rise in preference for metal-free dental restoration is expected to boost the PEEK dental implant market over the forecast period. Moreover, PEEK dental implants are shock absorbent and offer resistance to abrasion and decay. This drives preference for PEEK dental implants, which is expected to create lucrative market opportunities for the PEEK dental implant market during the forecast period.
The global PEEK dental implant market can be classified based on product, end-user, and geography. In terms of product, the global market can be segmented into dental crowns, dental dentures, dental abutment, and dental bridges. Based on end-user, the PEEK dental implant market can be categorized into hospitals, dental clinics, and ambulatory surgical centers.
The dental clinics segment is expected to hold a significant share of the global PEEK dental implant market because clinics are highly preferred by patients for dental procedures. Rise in number of dental injuries and increase in prevalence of dental diseases such as periodontitis or other conditions that increase the need for replacement of tooth/teeth are anticipated to drive the global market in the near future. However, high cost of PEEK implants and lack of awareness are the major factors that are likely to restrain the market during the forecast period.

In terms of region, the global PEEK dental implant market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. North America is anticipated to be dominant, followed by Europe. Rise in aging population, increasing incidence and prevalence of dental disease, well-established health care infrastructure, and high demand for PEEK dental implantsare likely to propel the PEEK dental implant market in North America and Europe.
The market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a high CAGR during the forecast period. This is due to large patient base in India and China undergoing dental procedures, increased number of dental injuries, rise in disposable income, and developing health care infrastructure. The PEEK dental implant market in Latin America and Middle East & Africa is anticipated to expand during the forecast period, owing to increasing investments from market players in these regions.
Leading players in the global PEEK dental implant market include SisoMM, Dibay, invibio, MKPrecision, Victrex plc Companies, Phoenix Implants GmbH, and Evonik Industries AG.
