The global dental equipment market size was valued at USD 8.89 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 16.07 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 9.6% during the forecast period.

The rising prevalence of dental disorders, growing geriatric population, and reducing medical and acceptance barriers for dental equipment primarily contribute to market growth. For instance, according to a research article published by the World Health Organization (WHO), oral diseases affect over 3.5 billion people worldwide, with dental caries being the most common condition. Additionally, the penetration of various key players in the market with advanced dental equipment contributes to fuel the market growth during the forecast period.

The growing adoption of various advanced equipment such as digital dentistry equipment, dental lasers, and dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is expected to drive the market growth. For instance, in October 2020, Summus Medical Laser, the leading provider of high-powered laser therapy products, announced the launch of Horizon Dental Laser System, the first-class IV therapy laser system designed for the dental industry.

Decline in Dental Equipment Products Sales amid COVID-19 to Affect Revenue

The coronavirus pandemic is having an unprecedented impact on society, the economy, and the dental sector. To keep the patients and dentists safe from the infection's adverse health effects, all the non-essential dental services were postponed, and health institutions focus only on an emergency or urgent dental care. Furthermore, the pandemic has negatively impacted the market. This is attributable to various factors such as disruption of the supply chain, patients' unwillingness to visit the healthcare facilities, especially dentists due to the fear of getting infected, and postponement of elective surgical procedures.

Various key players operating in this field witnessed a drop in their quarterly revenues due to the pandemic. For instance, according to a first-quarter 2020 report by Dentsply Sirona, the dental sales in Chinese, Japanese, South Korean, and Taiwanese markets fell by a cumulative USD 60-70 million in the first quarter of 2020. This is primarily because of the lower demand for dental procedures, which is eventually decreasing the equipment revenue.

Rising Preference for Digital Dental X-ray over Analog Dental X-ray is a Prominent Trend

Many dental clinics and hospitals are swapping analog dental X-rays with digital X-rays to obtain medical images due to their reduced cost and better care of the images, and a faster response. Hence, the rising preference for the digitized X-ray equipment, both among the patients and the healthcare professionals, is pushing market players to invest more in digital X-ray equipment. For instance, in August 2017, VATECH introduced the newest digital panoramic radiographic system that pushes 2D digital imaging limits and captures the depth added panoramic radiographs. Such launches are anticipated to offer lucrative market growth opportunities during the forecast period.


Increasing Prevalence of Dental Disorders to Fuel Market Growth

Dental disorders are highly prevalent across the globe. Smoking, poor oral hygiene, diabetes, medication, age, hereditary, and stress are major causes of the rising number of dental disorders. These disorders pose a major health burden for many countries and affect people throughout their lifetime, causing pain, discomfort, disfigurement, and even death. Therefore, there is an increased consciousness regarding oral health among the population. This is anticipated to increase dental care needs, thus spurring market growth during the forecast period. For instance, according to a research article published by dentalcare.com, in the U.S., the prevalence of periodontitis has been estimated to be over 47% of the adults or 64.7 million individuals.


High Cost of the Dental Equipment to Restrict Market Growth

Despite the high prevalence of dental disorders, some factors are restricting the growth of the global market. The high cost of the equipment is one such factor. For instance, laser treatments tend to be more expensive than standard dental treatments due to the high device cost. The cost of dental lasers ranges from USD 6,700 to USD 78,000, depending upon numerous features, delivery systems, wavelengths, and add-on components.

Limited reimbursement policies for dental treatment plans and insurance providers not covering dental treatment as a part of their mediclaim policy is another major factor in hindering market growth.

Dental Radiology Equipment Segment to Dominate Due to Growing Applications in Dental Imaging

Based on product type, the global market is categorized into dental radiology equipment, dental lasers, dental surgical navigation systems, dental CAD/CAM equipment, dental chairs, and others.

Among them, the dental radiology equipment segment held the major share in the year 2019. The increasing preference for technologically advanced dental radiology equipment is one of the primary reasons for this segment's growth during the forecast period. For instance, in May 2018, VATECH announced that its newly released 3D dental X-ray, Green Smart, installed its 100th unit in China.

The dental chairs segment held the second-largest share in 2019. Dental chairs are essential equipment in all dental clinics or hospitals. Thus, the growing number of dental hospitals and clinics is accelerating the growth of this segment.

By End-User Analysis

Hospitals Segment to Hold Largest Market Share

Factors attributed to the segment's growth are improved access to advanced and digitally modified equipment and the growing number of hospitals with the dental department. Additionally, the growing prevalence of dental disorders will considerably drive segment growth.

The increasing demand majorly contributes to the substantial growth of the dental clinics segment for dental implants pertaining to its clinical and aesthetic benefits. Additionally, various dental clinics in the country are adopting advanced technological equipment to better dental implant treatment. Moreover, the rapid rise in the number of dental clinics is another significant factor in boosting segment growth.
