Decrease in Demand for Dental Milling Machines during the Pandemic Resulted in a Decline in Market Growth 

The COVID-19 impact on the growth of the market was negative during the forecast period. The temporary shutdown of dental clinics & laboratories due to higher focus of healthcare providers toward COVID-19 patients is one of the major factors responsible for the decline of the market during the pandemic.

During COVID-19, lockdowns and social distancing rules were enforced to control the coronavirus spread, which significantly reduced the number of patient visits in dental clinics, thereby declining the demand for dental products in 2020.

For instance, according to the news published by Bennett, Coleman & Co. Ltd. in July 2020, In Bihar, India, over 80% of private dental and maxillofacial surgery clinics were closed. Such closure of dental clinics highly affected the market in 2020.

The decline in the number of dental treatments resulted in a decrease in the manufacturing of dental restoration such as crowns and other dentures. Additionally, most of the dental labs were closed during the pandemic. Furthermore, the market is largely dependent on distributors, and the majority of these machines were imported. The lockdown massively affected the transportation of dental milling machines, disrupting their access to the dental clinics and hospitals in the country.

However, in mid-2020, the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions by the government led to an increasing patient volume in dental clinics, which increased the demand for dental products in the market. From 2021 onwards, the relaxation of restrictions and resumption of the supply chains normalized the market to the pre-pandemic levels.

Growing Focus of Global Small Players to Enter the India Market

The growing demand for these equipment in dental laboratories and clinics to fulfill the demand for building dental restorations has increased the focus of mid-sized and small-sized global market players to enter the India market by introducing their products.

India is highly dependent on international market players, as there is currently only one domestic manufacturer of 5-axis milling dental machines, and there is significant penetration in the market for the machines.

In recent years, the market has seen the entrance of foreign players who have entered the market by launching their products through the importer distributor route.

  • For instance, China-based Company Shenzhen Upcera Dental Technology Co., Ltd. and Aidite (Qinhuangdao) Tech. Co., Ltd recently entered the market. Such introduction of new products in the market is expected to boost the demand for dental milling machines, thereby propelling the market growth during the forecast period.

These new machines are introduced at a low cost, expecting to increase their sales in the coming years as the market currently has more high-cost dental milling machines. Additionally, the market has ample opportunity for foreign players to enter.


Growing Prevalence of Dental Disorders to Contribute to the Market Growth

Most people from all age groups in the country suffer from disorders such as dental caries, periodontal disease, and dental malocclusion due to inadequate implementation of oral care and prevention programs.

  • For instance, according to a study published in the Journal of Oral Biology and Craniofacial Research in December 2020, the overall prevalence of periodontal disease was 51.0%, and gingivitis was 46.6% in India.

The prevalence of dental diseases continues to increase due to poor access to oral health care services and inadequate exposure to fluoride in the community. Moreover, increased consumption of tobacco and alcohol has led to higher rates of oral health issues, and poor oral hygiene has led to the high prevalence of dental caries, especially in adult age.

  • For instance, in a study published by NCBI in June 2021, in India, the prevalence of dental cavities was 62% in patients above 18 years and 52% among 3–18 years of age. Additionally, cavities were the most common reason for crown treatment.

This large patient population with dental disorders is increasing the demand for accurate and customized dental restorations and prosthetics. Furthermore, several distinct benefits, such as the durability of the materials used in these machines, efficiency in laboratory processing, quick restoration fabrication, and quality control of the restoration, are expected to boost the demand for dental products, thereby fueling the overall growth of the market of dental milling machines.

Rising Adoption of CAD/CAM Machine Dentistry to Boost Market Growth 

The surge in disposable income, coupled with rising beauty standards, is majorly contributing toward the propelling demand for aesthetic dentistry. Additionally, the increase in prevalence of dental disorders has increased the demand for dental restorations and prosthetics

Furthermore, the penetration of digital technologies and increasing adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are novel trends with variable uses across implant designing, diagnosis, and dental product manufacturing, which is expected to fuel the demand for the machines in the forecast period.

Dental implants are becoming the preferred treatment for tooth loss. Patients' awareness is also rising, and the growing demand for fixed implant-based solutions over conventional removable options is driving market growth.

Furthermore, the increasing focus of global small market players growing their footprints in the India market through CAD CAM milling machines is expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period.


High Cost of Machine to Limit the Market Growth

The rising prevalence of dental disorders and technological advancement in cad cam technology are some of the major factors contributing to the market growth during the forecast period. However, the high installation cost of the device and other accessories & software restricts the market growth significantly.

Thus, the high cost of CAD/CAM scanners, associated instruments, and consumables exert a huge economic burden on healthcare systems.

Additionally, lack of adequate insurance coverage for dental treatments in India is creating hurdles to better service quality. It is further limiting the adoption of these equipment in the market.

  • For instance, according to the study published in International Healthcare Research Journal in January 2022, the study stated that most dentists accept only cash or online payment, and only 1.0% of the dentists accept installment payments, which may be due to poor recovery rate of payment from patients. These issues arise due to poor dental insurance in India.

Hence, the high cost of instruments & software and limited insurance coverage for dental treatment are some of the factors primarily responsible for lower diagnosis and treatment rates, subsequently resulting in limited adoption of CAD/CAM scanners globally.
