NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The dental imaging market is estimated to grow by USD 1.28 billion from 2022 to 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.39%. The use of intraoral scanners and open architecture solutions is an emerging trend supporting the dental imaging market growth. Dentists are increasingly utilizing advanced intraoral scanners to capture high-speed impressions of teeth. These impressions are then transmitted to dental laboratories for milling and cutting. In the market, there are several options available for intraoral scanners, and manufacturers often provide open architecture software, enabling users to select their preferred milling center. The files generated in the open architecture system can be imported into CAD software and seamlessly integrated with various milling units for manufacturing. The adoption of open architecture software is a rising trend among dental imaging system manufacturers, as it allows for enhanced functionality and interoperability between systems. Open architecture solutions offer affordability and compatibility with different milling systems, making them an attractive choice in the dental imaging market. Therefore, the increasing utilization of intraoral scanners and open architecture solutions is expected to drive market growth throughout the forecast period. For Comprehensive details on the market size of historic period(2017 to 2021) and forecast period (2023-2027) – View the Sample report

Key Developments:

Market Dynamics

Major Drivers & Challenges- 

An increase in dental-related problems among the edentulous and geriatric population is notably driving market growth. Increasing dental problems in the edentulous population significantly contribute to the growth of the global dental imaging market. This issue affects not only the elderly and low-income populations but also the most vulnerable individuals. Multiple factors, including poor oral hygiene, tooth decay, gum disease, tooth wear, injury, cancer, smoking, and age-related tooth loss, contribute to tooth loss in older people. The prevalence of these dental diseases rises notably with age. Furthermore, the global elderly population is rapidly increasing in line with rising life expectancies. The World Health Organization predicts that the number of individuals aged 65 and above will reach approximately 1.4 billion by 2030 and around 2.1 billion by 2050. Complete loss of natural teeth is also becoming increasingly common among older individuals, with approximately 3 out of 10 people aged 65 to 74 having no natural teeth. Additionally, increasing risk factors such as diabetes, poor oral hygiene, stress, and tobacco and alcohol use further contribute to the prevalence of dental diseases. These factors will drive the demand for dental imaging services, fostering market growth during the forecast period.

The high cost of advanced dental imaging equipment and procedure are challenging the market growth. Small and medium-sized dental offices and dental laboratories often hesitate to invest in advanced dental imaging equipment like dental CBCT and digital dental X-ray systems due to their high cost. Developed countries offer minimal reimbursement for dental imaging procedures, while reimbursement is scarce in developing and underdeveloped countries, further impacting the adoption of these technologies. On average, a CBCT machine can cost around USD 150,000, with prices ranging up to USD 300,000 depending on advanced upgrades and imaging software. The imaging or diagnostic cost for each procedure typically falls between USD 300 and USD 600, varying by clinic. Dental care is mostly non-refundable in many countries, and even in countries where reimbursement is available, the coverage is often limited. Moreover, digital dental X-ray systems, which are more advanced than analog systems, come with a higher price tag, ranging from USD 120,000 to USD 280,000 on average. Consequently, the substantial cost of this equipment is expected to hinder the growth of the market during the forecast period.
