Posted by dentalinsider on October 30, 2007

(PRWEB) October 26, 2007 — Piribo, the online destination for business intelligence for the biotech and pharmaceutical industry, has now added a new report which predicts that dental offices will retain their hold on the largest market share and also grow the fastest.

“New US Industry Forecasts To 2011 & 2016” finds that US demand for dental equipment will grow 3.8 percent annually through to 2011. Growth will be aided by a strong interest in acquiring the latest technology and by changing favourable population dynamics.

Authors of the report say that advanced equipment such as lasers, intra-oral cameras, digital radiography and CAD/CAM systems will lead gains, however dental offices will still remain the largest and fastest growing market.

The report puts into perspective the factors shaping the $2.4 billion US dental equipment industry. It provides historical demand data for 1996, 2001 and 2006 and forecasts to 2011 and 2016 individually for major products. Specific sections are dedicated to various products such as hand instruments, lasers, imaging systems, instrument delivery systems, toothbrushes, seating, lighting. The study also looks at market constituents like dental offices, consumers and laboratories.

The report profiles 30 major players including Proctor & Gamble, Danaher, A-Dec, Sirona Dental Systems, and DENSTPLY International and evaluates the company market share. It identifies the trends and influences that will impact the market environment.

“New US Industry Forecasts To 2011 & 2016” is available in pdf format from Piribo. For more information, go to:
