The dental imaging systems market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.26% over the forecast period to reach US$3,297.980 million by 2027 from US$2,156.159 million in 2020. A dental imaging system refers to a system that provides a clear graphical image of the teeth, jawline, and facial bone composition. Such imaging systems form an integral part of the dentistry field as they enable a dentist to keep a close check on the bone and teeth health, detecting mouth cavities as well as monitoring the status of teeth that are in development. The growing prevalence of dental disease, coupled with the rapidly growing population of old age people, and growing government budgets in the dental field is projected to provide a wider scope to the dental imaging system in the future. For instance, in April 2022, the Canadian Federal Government announced the funding of US$5.3 billion for the next five years to increase dental care access to people having a low income. Moreover, the government of India, as per its National Oral Health Program invested US$1.88 billion in its oral care in 2021. Furthermore, rapid technological advancements in dental diagnosis practices and the introduction of new innovative systems for dental imaging have taken market growth in a new direction.

Based on type the dental imaging systems market can be segmented as intraoral and extraoral. The extraoral segment is expected to grow at a relatively higher rate during the forecast period of the dentistry imaging systems market. Extraoral dental imaging system unlike intraoral details anatomically as the system involves placing sensors outside the mouth which enables 360-degree rotation imaging. Moreover, imaging of patients with facial swelling due to a dental infection is not possible using intraoral sensors, an extraoral imaging system in such cases provides a greater level of convenience to patients as well as dentists. The rapid increase in tooth decay issues among people especially in the older generation has created a surge in the scale of dental practices, thereby providing a simultaneous increase in the usage of dental imaging systems such as extraoral.

Bolstering growth in the prevalence of dental disease is creating a surge in the demand and usage of dental imaging systems. Dental diseases such as tooth decay, periodontitis, and cracked tooth among others occurs owing to poor hygiene, food habits, and improper cleansing of teeth. Such diseases deteriorate teeth health thereby causing various mouth infections. Such disease prevalence has a high rate among adults and old age people. For instance, according to the WHO’s Global Burden of Disease Study, in 2019, the estimated number of people suffering from oral stood at 3.5 billion with 2 billion people suffering from permanent tooth decay. Furthermore, according to Europe’s Platform for Better Oral Health, in 2020, half of the population in Europe suffered from some type of periodontitis and the prevalence rate among adults aged from 60 to 65 years saw a significant increase from 70% to 85%. Owing to such growing dental disease, the scale of dental practice is also projected to increase, thereby having a simultaneous increase in the demand and consumption of equipment such as dental imaging systems in the future. Hence, this will propel the market growth for dental imaging systems during the forecast period.

Recent development and expansion

  • In September 2022, Midmark Corp. launched its new product line namely “Midmark Extraoral Imaging System”, which consists of 3D CBCT imaging  X-ray and 2D panoramic devices cephalometric options. The new product launches will enable dentists to simplify their CBCT and panoramic imaging.
  • In October 2020, Dentsply Sirona announced the launch of its Axeos 2D/3D imaging system and Schick AE intraoral sensors. The new imaging products use low-dose exposure for capturing high-quality images, are equipped with height adjustments, and provide quick scanning that leads to an exceptional patient experience.
  • SOTA Imaging, in August 2021, launched dental imaging software based on cloud technology. The new software makes the work of image capturing easy for the dentist and also provides them with easy access to their stored data.

Covid-19 Impact on the Dental Imaging Systems Market

COVID-19 restrictions relating to the public movement led to a decrease in certain medical practices such as dentistry. Owing to the fear of catching an infection, appointments relating to oral care and hygiene were cut short to prevent overburdening of patients. For instance, in March 2020, American Dental Association advised dental offices to cut short elective dental treatments and only provide emergency dental services. Such suggestions and guidelines by various governing authorities reduced the scale of dental practices and led to the closure of dental clinics in various locations, thereby decreasing the market scope of dental imaging systems. However, with the governments now easing up the COVID restrictions, the market demand for imaging is expected to show a steady increase in the coming years, which will boost the market growth.
