  • Dental Equipment Market: Introduction

    Dental equipment are an integral part of dentistry, with growing number of dental clinics and the frequency of dental check-up, the growth for dental equipment market is expected to propel during the forecast period. Incorporation of latest technologies, in manufacturing dental equipment such as computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), computer-aided design (CAD), dental radiology, and dental lasers, has resulted in the improvement of therapy outcomes and other dental results. 

    Dental equipment extensively helps in the treatment or diagnosis of dental problems such as periodontal (gum) disease, gingival disease, and dental cavities among others. Introduction of 3D printing and its application in dental industry has created a very advantageous environment beneficial for the growth of the market as it helps the dentists to provide a better service with the help of efficient treatment and diagnostic tools. Furthermore, the growing awareness among the populous for dental treatment coupled with increase in expenditure for dental care is in turn expected to drive the dental equipment market. According to the American Dental Association, in 2016, about 56.3% of U.S. adults visits a dentist in every 6months. The shift in dentist’s practice from treatment of diseases to more of preventive measures, serves as a major factor for the growth of dental equipment market. Government initiatives towards dental care also serves as a factor for the growth of the market in the forecast period. For instance, in 2017, in Australia, funds were allocated to public services for dental care of approximately US$ 1.3 billion with the help of the Single National Child and Adult Public Dental Scheme. Moreover, increasing geriatric population coupled with demand for surgical, prevention, and restorative services for dental care is expected to propel the growth for the dental equipment market. Owing to these factors, the dental equipment market is expected to propel during the forecast period.

    Dental Equipment & Dentistry:

    The dental equipment market is driven by the various developments in CAD/CAM technologies and 3D printing technology. The introduction of 3D printing and other technologies has helps to develop laser and electro techniques for surgery which provides better precision, reduces tissue damage, and provides faster healing. For instance, the time taken for fixed dental prostheses restoration such as bridges, crowns, inlays, veneers, and onlays procedures is reduced to one or two days with the incursion of development by CAD/CAM techniques. Treatment records could be stored with the replacement of conventional radiology equipment by digital radiology equipment which has communication systems (PACS) and processes picture records, Furthermore, inclusion of 3D printing technology has improved the conventional CT systems to cone bean CT systems. This CT system offers clear oral images and minimizes the exposure to unsafe X-rays.

    Furthermore, other factors which is expected to hamper the dental equipment market is the rising consumer awareness towards dental care and high cost associated with dental treatments. According to the Oral Health Foundation, in 2016, 88% of the U.K. adults don’t have any dental insurance and about 64% of the adults favors visiting government based dental clinics (National Health Service (NHS)) over private dentists due to high cost. High dental cost associated with dental care, such as in periodontal disease treatment, cosmetic dentistry dental caries and others is expected to hamper the growth of the dental equipment market in the forecast period.

    Regional Acumens:

    Europe is expected to dominate the dental equipment market, and Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing region for the market during the forecast period. Europe is expected to dominate the market due to increase in dental tourism which accounts to more x-rays, scans and other tests. For instance, According to National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), Hungary is one of the major destination for dental tourism which has accounted to have around 8,000 visitors in 2016, due to low price associated to its procedures and better performance. For instance, treatment for root canal in U.S. is estimated to be US$ 500 while in Hungary it cost only US$ 70, similarly zirconium crowns in U.S. cost US$ 1,200 while in Hungary it cost only US$ 400. Thus, the lower costing of medical procedures and equipment is expected to drive the medical equipment market in Europe during the forecast period.

    Market Players:

    The global players are more focused on technologies to withstand their place in the competitive market with mergers, partnership, acquisition, and innovations. For instance, Sirona has its portfolio in 3D imaging and CAD/CAM sectors, Danher Corporation has its portfolio in x-ray systems. Major players for the dental equipment market includes Patterson Companies Inc., GC Corporation, A-Dec Inc., Biolase Inc., Denstply International Inc., Danaher Corporation, and Planmeca Oy among others.
