The global Dental X-ray market size is expected to be worth around US$ 13.35 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global Dental X-ray market size was valued at US$ 636.5 million in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 28.6% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.
The increasing prevalence of oral diseases as well rising geriatric population are some of the factors that have led to the growth of the market.
Dental x-ray systems are useful in detecting and recording areas of decay that are undetectable by oral examination, especially minor areas of decay present between teeth. The rising prevalence of periodontitis is also accelerating the demand for these instruments. According to the CDC, 47.2% of adults aged 30 years in the U.S. have some form of periodontal disease with the condition being more common in men than women as they are more prone to smoking and health conditions, like diabetes. Other oral diseases contributing to the high demand for dental x-ray units are oral infections, gum diseases, oral cavities, periodontitis, tooth decay, and tumor or cyst detection. Early diagnosis of severe dental problems helps in treating them at the nascent stage, thus leading to potential cost savings.
The geriatric population plays a significant role in the growth of the market. This group of population is highly susceptible to various kinds of oral problems, thus considered to be a lucrative target population for the market. Furthermore, major companies are undertaking initiatives such as new product development. For instance, in 2019, Dentsply Sirona introduced Orthophos Systems 2D/3D extraoral imaging system that allows the practitioners to image, diagnose, and treat (IDT) for higher case acceptance and expand their treatment procedures into implantology, endodontics, etc.
Analog devices dominated the market in 2020 with a share of 59.9% due to the fact that these devices are still used by experienced dentists who are familiar with the system. The high cost involved in switching to digital systems and low inclination for shifting to advanced systems might affect existing practices as digital systems require higher investment. This is anticipated to be a major factor driving this segment.
However, the slow growth of the analog systems can be attributed to the need for multiplex-rays for an image of decent quality, which causes repeated exposure to radiation. This exposure exceeds that of digital systems. Apart from the risk of high radiation exposure, the system entails increased consumption of time and chemicals, and developing the x-rays requires trained staff.
The dental x-ray market has witnessed a sudden shift from analog to digital systems. Digital technology is slowly becoming a global trend and its adoption has increased in the market. The adoption of digital sensors in digital x-ray systems enables easy storage of x-ray images onto an imaging software, which can be easily accessed and is a better alternative to films that necessitate developing and safekeeping for future viewing. In 2015, a survey conducted by the National Library of Medicine stated that 80% of patients preferred the digital procedure to the analog procedure because of better convenience and less shortness of breath, and fear of repeating the process.
Intraoral technique accounted for the largest share of 52.7% in 2020 due to exceptional spatial and contrast resolution offered by these devices. It has additional advantages including cost-effectiveness and low maintenance costs. Based on different aspects of the teeth that are imaged, intraoral x-rays are categorized into periapical, bitewing, and occlusal. According to an article published by IData Research, over 1.4 billion dental X-rays were performed last year in the U.S., with procedures including intraoral and extraoral X-rays, and among these, over 90% fell under the intraoral category.
The main objective of the periapical x-rays is to capture the image of a root tip on a film, which helps visualize the whole tooth and the condition of the surrounding bone. Bitewing x-ray images focus on the buccal surface of the teeth at a perpendicular angle to capture images of crowns of the maxillary and mandibular teeth. The occlusal x-ray images yield a more comprehensive view of the maxilla and mandible, which enables the determination of the extent and displacement of fractures in both upper and lower jaws.
Extraoral x-rays are expected to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period as they enable control over radiation exposure in comparison to intraoral methods. They are most commonly used in the identification of larger disorders, such as temporomandibular joint disorders or wedged teeth. To date, Dentsply Sirona has installed around 100,000 extraoral imaging units globally.
The medical application segment held the largest revenue share of 61.3% in 2020 as it helps view the extent of various conditions, such as cavities, tumors, and fractures. Dental radiographs are employed to evaluate the extent of tooth decay and check for other oral problems, such as cysts or abscesses.
Cosmetic dentistry is expected to exhibit a significant CAGR over the forecast period. Dental esthetics is becoming an increasing concern amongst individuals across the globe, leading to a surge in demand for cosmetic procedures, which is believed to have doubled in recent years. The rise in various cosmetic procedures, such as bleaching, teeth reshaping, and cavity filling, is supporting the demand for these imaging systems. Intraoral and extraoral radiographs are crucial in cosmetic dentistry as they are widely clicked before undertaking any dental procedure. Intraoral x-rays are required to analyze tooth roots, which is essential before undergoing any cosmetic procedure. Restorations with inlay or onlay are planned using radiographs, which help determine certain prerequisites, such as periodontal support, the extent of decay, and tooth proximity to the nerve.
Digital dental x-rays play a significant role in forensics due to their use in timely and rapid victim identification as well as age estimation through assessing the stage of tooth eruption. The use of dental radiographic imaging in forensic dentistry has increased due to efficiency and may also help compare antemortem and postmortem radiographs. Forensic odontology also includes the study of dental anatomy and interpretation of radiographs, pathology, dental materials, and developmental abnormalities. It provides a direct representation of the anatomical features, for instance, the trabecular bone pattern.
In 2020, North America dominated the market with a share of 38.2% due to the presence of well-established healthcare infrastructure and growing healthcare spending in developed countries, like the U.S. Moreover, favorable healthcare reimbursements and an increase in government initiatives in this region boost the market penetration of these systems.
Europe accounted for a significant share in 2020 owing to the growing geriatric population in this region. The geriatric population is more prone to oral diseases, and hence the demand for dental imaging is high among this group of population. Oral diseases are also prevalent among the young population in Europe, thus driving the demand for the devices.
Asia Pacific is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. This is due to the rising awareness in the developing countries of the region regarding various oral problems, thus facilitating rapid diagnosis and treatment. The geriatric population in China is also another major factor driving the market.
