One sector of the growing healthcare industry that is expanding particularly rapidly is the dental market and there are already automated processing centres producing dental restorations of the highest accuracy by laser-sintering EOS CobaltChrome SP2, a biocompatible and CE-certified material.

According to a survey by The Millennium Research Group, the European market for dental crowns and bridges is predicted to grow annually by an average rate of 8% until 2012. Almost half of the market for crowns and bridges is in Germany, and was valued at US$ 900 million in 2007.
