research and markets

The dental imaging systems market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.64%, reaching US$5.02 billion by 2028 from US$2.81 billion in 2021.

Major companies such as Dentsply Sirona and Planmeca play a significant role in the dental imaging systems market, competing to provide cutting-edge technology and solutions to dental professionals worldwide. These companies not only innovate in terms of imaging quality and features but also ensure strict adherence to regulatory standards to maintain product safety and effectiveness.

Looking ahead, the future of the dental imaging systems industry is poised for further advancement, with the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) expected to play a pivotal role, allowing for automated image analysis, faster diagnoses, and more precise treatment planning.

Growth in the Prevalence of Dental Diseases

The growth in the prevalence of dental disease serves as a pivotal and enduring growth factor for the dental imaging systems market due to the increasing demand for accurate diagnosis and treatment of conditions like cavities, gum disease, and oral cancers. As the global population ages and preventive dentistry gains importance, dental imaging systems play a crucial role in early intervention and treatment planning. Patient awareness and expectations for comprehensive dental care further boost the adoption of these systems.

Data from the World Health Organization’s Global Oral Health Status Report for the year 2022 reveals a substantial increase in the estimated impact of oral diseases on a global scale. In 2017, the estimate stood at 2.5 million affected individuals, but by 2022, this number had risen significantly to nearly 3.5 billion people worldwide.

North American Dental Imaging Market is Anticipated to Propel

The prevalence of dental issues is increasing in North America, and dental imaging systems industry players are launching more products, engaging in strategic actions, and placing a stronger emphasis on research and development. All these elements support the dental imaging systems market expansion. According to the American Dental Association (2020), over 5 million Americans aged 65 to 74 have lost every tooth, with approximately 3 million being edentulous. Teeth are regularly lost by elderly people.

This is because 27% of cases of dental caries, which affect 91% of adults between the ages of 20 and 64, go untreated. Additionally, several industry participants take part in strategic projects that aid in dental imaging systems market expansion. The administrative support team for the ClearChoice Dental Implant Center network, ClearChoice Management Services (CCMS), inked a new contract with Planmeca and Henry Schein in March 2022 to enhance the patient experience with superior digital imaging technologies.

The United States is Anticipated to be the Fastest-Growing Country in the North American Region

The United States dental imaging systems market is expanding due to the country’s rapidly aging population, which has a high prevalence of dental problems, as well as rising public awareness of the need for restorative and oral preventive treatments. Additionally, the high demand for cosmetic dentistry, rising rates of tooth loss, increasing per-person healthcare costs, and the introduction of numerous technologically improved items are contributing to industry profitability.

Further, increased dental imaging technology and rising demand for cosmetic dentistry are contributing to dental imaging systems market expansion. For example, according to a research study titled “Update on the prevalence of untreated caries in the US adult population, 2017-2020,” published in the Journal of the American Dental Association in December 2021, the prevalence of coronal and root caries was 17.9% and 10.1%, respectively, most common in men and women in the age groups of 30-39 and 40-49. Moreover, as per the Dental Statistics of Express Dentist, 2022, USA, more than 80% of people have at least one cavity by the age of 34, and more than 40% of adults say they’ve had mouth pain; almost 25% of adults have untreated dental decay, and periodontal (gum) disease affects 40-50% of American individuals over the age of 30, with serious gum disease affecting 9% of adults.
