The Omni PLUS and BioForce PLUS brackets and wires under the Ortho Product category are some of the recent launches by the company in the Technologies segment. Dentsply Sirona acquired MIS Implants in June 2016 to complement the company’s Implant Brand business. It helped Dentsply Sirona enter the $1.5 billion value segment of the implant market.

Growth drivers

In 2Q16, Dentsply Sirona’s leading position in the Digital Sensor category and rebound in the Lab business drove its Technologies segment sales. Its Schick brand is a leading product of the company. The segment’s sales, however, were negatively affected by Intraoral Sensors’s lower shipments.

The Technologies segment’s Europe sales growth declined due to the tough comps last year, driven by a record International Dental Show (or IDS) and some key product launches.

Some of the major players in the US medical device industry include Abbott Laboratories (ABT), Zimmer Biomet Holdings (ZBH), and Boston Scientific (BSX), which reported 2Q16 YoY sales growth of 3.2%, 65.6%, and 15.4%, respectively. 

Investors can invest in the iShares Russell Mid-Cap Value ETF (IWS), which has about a 0.44% exposure to Dentsply Sirona.
