Impact Analysis of Covid-19
The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.
Technological advancements in the field of dentistry has revolutionized the way dental procedures are performed. Rapid dental prototyping is a type of computer aided manufacturing, which makes physical objects from computer generated data. The technological advancements in dental care and treatment are expected to drive growth of the global dental rapid prototyping systems market. Key players in the market have lucrative growth opportunities due to rising penetration of dental 3D printers in emerging economies such as India and China.
According to a study published in the Journal of Oral Research and Review in 2017, the emergence of advanced digital technologies has opened up new perspectives for production and design in the field of dentistry. Rapid prototyping or RP is a technique to automatically and quickly construct a 3D model of a product. In dentistry, RP helps in constructing dental models to provide precise products and treatment for patients. The dental rapid prototyping has various applications such as fabrication of implant surgical guides, molds for metal castings, zirconia prosthesis, frameworks for removable & fixed partial dentures, dental prosthesis with wax pattern, maxillofacial prosthesis, and complete denture.
The increasing number of cases of tooth decay and unhealthy eating habits are expected to drive the global dental rapid prototyping systems market growth during the forecast period. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), around 2.3 billion people worldwide suffered from caries of permanent teeth in 2017. In most of the middle- and low- income countries, with changes in living conditions and growing urbanization, the prevalence of oral diseases is constantly increasing.
Dental Rapid Prototyping Systems Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
Dental rapid prototyping systems market is hugely affected due to the outbreak of COVID-19. It is becoming difficult to deliver dental care due to restrictions for travel due to the pandemic crisis. Moreover, dental care providers need to be prepared to tackle any impending infectious disease challenge such as the deadly coronavirus. However, it is predicted that the dental rapid prototyping systems market will regain its position after the COVID-19 chaos when several restrictions are lifted by governments.
The all-inclusive version of the report will include the impact of COVID-19 and the probable changes in the future outlook of the industry, by taking into account the technological, social, political, and economical parameters.
The dental rapid prototyping systems market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1,824.9 million in 2020 and is expected to rise at a CAGR of 21.8% during the forecast period (2020-2027).

An increase in the number of mergers & acquisitions and product launches is expected to propel growth of the dental rapid prototyping systems market
Key players in the market are involved in mergers & acquisitions to develop technologically advanced products and launch them in the dental rapid prototyping systems market. The product launches in the industry are expected to significantly boost the market growth and create lucrative growth opportunities for the global market during the forecast period.
For instance, in January 2017, 3D Systems Corporatio n announced the acquisition of Vertex-Global Holding B.V, a worldwide provider of dental materials under NextDent and Vertex brands. Through this acquisition, the advanced 3D printing materials of NestDenta and 3D Systems’ groundbreaking platform provide a strategic foothold in the digital dentistry market opportunity.
Furthermore, key industry players are also launching rapid prototyping software, which is helping the dental rapid prototyping systems market to grow exponentially. For instance, in December 2019, Benco Dental launched the practice management solution, which is powered by ‘Open Dental’ software. It is a total practice management solution scalable for any practice size for dental offices. Open Dental is specially designed by dentists and is available through Benco Dental, the largest independent dental distributor in the U.S.
Dental Rapid Prototyping Systems Market - Restraints
However, high cost associated with dental rapid prototyping systems coupled with lack of skilled professionals to handle such systems is expected to hamper growth of the dental rapid prototyping systems market. Dental rapid prototyping is considered to be a difficult process, as it demands a high level of artistic skill and requires knowledge of dental techniques. Slow penetration of such advanced systems in rural areas of regions such as Africa and Asia Pacific will limit the development of this market over the forecast period.
