Tooth loss has a lot to do with improper eating habits, aging, or even – accidents. Dental implants market is flourishing with an ever-increasing demand on their part due to awareness regarding dental hygiene. Dental implants basically extend support to false teeth/dental prosthetics. As per FOR (Foundation for Oral Rehabilitation), over 240 Mn people are partially/totally edentulous as of the year 2020. Of late, CAD/CAM technology is also being applied herein. Also, the fact that CAD/CAM technology makes way for non-invasive flapless surgeries, which, in turn, does reduce post-operative discomfort as well as healing time, keeping the soft tissues of teeth intact. Coming to developments, Carestream Dental, in July 2019, did ink a partnership agreement with “ArchformByte” for using former’s CS 3600 or CS 3500 intraoral scanners for sending precise images to the latter online to efficiently produce C-Thru aligners.
Dental implants further ask for dental implant abutment systems. By product type, the dental implant abutment systems market consists of pre-fabricated/stock abutment systems and custom abutment systems. Application-wise, it’s CAD/CAM and pre-mill.
Craniomaxillofacial implants cater to defects, injuries, diseases, and several abnormalities pertaining to cranial space, neck, head, and face. In other words, they restore and replace dysfunctional/missing anatomical structures with the objective of improving defective craniomaxillofacial parts. The deformities generally observed herein include hemifacial macrosomia, cleft lip, hemagiomas, cleft palate, and vascular malfunctions. Regarding developments, Kelyniam Global Inc., in May 2019, did receive pre-marketing approval from the US FDA to let it modify the PEEK craniomaxillofacial implant products.
Advancements in dentistry have also resulted in an ever-increasing demand for dental loupes and camera. Dental camera finds its way into the dental loupe for recording an explicit image of the internal areas of mouth. By type of product, the dental loupes and camera market spans Flip up Loupe, Prismatic Loupe, Galilean Loupe, and Front-Lens-Mounted Loupe.
At the same time, the ever-increasing volume of patients’ data asks for superlative healthcare processes. This is where healthcare information systems come into picture. Their functionality includes customer relationship management, claims management, provider network management, fraud analytics, pharmacy audit & analysis, population health management, member eligibility management, and payment management systems. As such, healthcare information systems market is there to go great guns in the next 10 years.
The surgical procedure could be smoothened with surgical lamps, better known as surgical overheads or operating light. Optical illumination is enabled in optical, dental, and neurosurgery by use of surgical lamps. By type of product, they span surgical headlight lamps, ceiling mount lamps, dental light lamps, laser light lamps, and various others. Technology wise, they are fluorescent, halogen, and LED. Surgical lamps market is all set to be a blockbuster in the years to come.
Coming to collection as well as distribution of human blood, disposable plastic blood bags are preferred. These days, they are made from several bio disposable compounds, so could be termed as “environment-friendly”. Plus, as they do have multiple tubes embedded, separation of the platelets, cryoprecipitate, and plasma from blood takes place smoothly. They could be categorized as triple, double, single, and quadruple bags.
The e-Prescribing solutions are being adopted at a wider scale as they offer advantages like enhanced patient safety, minimal chances of medication errors (as handwritten prescriptions are out of question), misinterpreted phoned-in prescriptions, and least risks associated with misplaced/lost written prescriptions. Deployment-wise, they could be cloud and on-premise.
Sterilization Services are also asked for, especially after the outbreak of Covid-19. Sterilization is amongst the best courses of action for averting cross-contamination. The techniques include steam sterilization, Gamma sterilization, electron beam irradiation, X-Ray irradiation, ethylene oxide sterilization, ion beam treatment, and plasma sterilization.
UK Healthcare market could be analysed by universal state-funded healthcare that is made available by National Health Service (NHS). Since the last few years, NHS has been struggling to meet the waiting time targets regarding planned surgery, which has prompted people to shell out for their treatments from their pockets at private clinics/hospitals. Research states that personal payment on the count of acute medical care has witnessed an increase of more than 50% in the last 5-6 years. This shows that UK private healthcare market is bound to grow manifold in the forecast period.

Regarding surgical lamps, American Society of Cataract and Refractive Survey (ASCRS) has stated that more than 3.6 Mn cataract surgeries get performed every year all across the US. These surgeries, along with the other critical ones, call for surgical lamps. In all, hospital management, in sync with various implants, is bound to be the major revenue generator for healthcare industry. – as stated by PMR.
