There are two main types of dental X-rays: intraoral and extraoral. In intraoral, the X-ray film is inside the mouth and in extraoral it is outside the mouth. Intraoral X-rays are the most common type of X-ray. Intraoral X-rays systems allows dentists to observe roots of the teeth, check the condition of the bony region surrounding the tooth, monitor the condition of developing teeth, and detect cavities.

The global dental imaging equipment market is estimated to account for US$ 4,524.3 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2027.

Global Dental Imaging Equipment Market: Drivers

Increasing adoption of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and various dental imaging techniques is expected to fuel growth of the global dental imaging equipment market over the forecast period. CBCT provides 3D images that assists general dental practitioners to provide the necessary treatment. It generates 3D images of dental structures and hard tissues, especially of the maxillofacial region. The images obtained are of high diagnostic quality.

Global Dental Imaging Equipment Market: Opportunities 

Development of new dental mirrors is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the global dental imaging equipment market. For instance, Dynasil Corporation of America, a developer and manufacturer of optics and photonics products, offers rhodium-coated RioFoto dental mirrors that offer better reflectivity over the visible range.

Global Dental Imaging Equipment Market: Restraints

Lack of dentists in low- and middle-income economies is expected to hinder growth of the market. For instance, according to the National Health Profile (NHP) 2018, only over 2.7 lakh dentists are registered with the Dental Council of India (DCI), of which the government employs only 7,239 dentists.

Key Takeaways:

The Intraoral X-ray Systems segment in the global dental imaging equipment market was valued at US$ 662.4 Mn in 2019 and is expected to reach US$ 1,144.8 Mn by 2027 at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period. The growth of the segment is attributed to increasing prevalence of oral disease     in developed and developing economies during the forecasted period.

The Independent Dental Clinics segment held dominant position in the global dental imaging equipment market in 2019, accounting for 71.6% share in terms of value, followed by ambulatory surgical centers and hospitals, respectively. Increasing dental healthcare expenditure and growing awareness for oral diseases in developing economies expected to propel the growth of the segments during the forecasted period.

Market Trends

The adoption of AI in dental imaging is witnessing significant growth. For instance, in May 2019, Pearl, a startup applying AI to dentistry, raised US$ 11 million in series A funding.

Major players in the market are also focused on adopting partnership and collaboration strategies to expand their product portfolio. For instance, in September 2019, Zimmer Biomet entered into a multinational distribution deal with Align Technology for its iTero Element family of intraoral scanners.
