Type – Segment Analysis
The Intraoral X-rays segment held the largest share in the Dental Digital X-ray Market in 2019 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.98% during the forecast period. Intraoral X-rays are the most common type of dental X-ray taken. These X-rays provide a lot of detail and allow the dentist to find cavities, check the health of the tooth root and bone surrounding the tooth, check the status of developing teeth, and monitor the general health of the teeth and jawbone. Extraoral X-rays show teeth, but their main focus is the jaw and skull. These X-rays do not provide the detail found with intraoral X-rays and therefore are not used for detecting cavities or for identifying problems with individual teeth. Instead, extraoral X-rays are used to look for impacted teeth, monitor growth and development of the jaws about the teeth, and to identify potential problems between teeth and jaws and the temporomandibular joint. The Intraoral X-rays are set to be the highest growing segment and are estimated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period 2020-2025.
Modality- Segment Analysis
The Stationary X-rays systems held the largest share in the Dental Digital X-ray Market in 2019 and are estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.14% during the forecast period. Stationary X-ray Plate is a multi-purpose radiography detector that provides the perfect combination of robust performance and cost advantage. Stationary X-rays have higher energy than light waves, they can pass through the body. Stationary X-rays are those x-rays where a beam of x-rays produced by an x-ray machine is directed at the part of your body that is being examined and on to a special film to take a picture. This technique is used to examine the intestine or to obtain images of flowing blood in blood vessels. The stationary X-rays system is set to be the highest growing segment and is estimated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period 2020-2025.
Geography – Segment Analysis
North America dominated the Dental Digital X-ray Market in 2019 with a share of more than 39%, followed by the Asia Pacific owing to technological advancements. The shift from analogs to digital systems and the rising incidence of dental disorders among children and young adults is increasing the growth of the dental digital x-ray system in this region.
However, Asia Pacific is estimated to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period 2020-2025 owing to the increasing care expenditure and growing incidence of incidental disorders owing to the prevalence of unhealthy lifestyles. Less stringent regulatory guidelines and increasing healthcare infrastructure are increasing the growth of the dental digital x-ray market in this region.
Drivers – Dental Digital X-ray Market
- The growing usage of dental implants, orthodontics and prosthetics and rising incidence of dental disorders
The growing usage of dental implants, orthodontics, and prosthetics and the rising incidence of dental disorders is increasing the growth of the dental digital x-ray market. A dental implant (also known as an end osseous implant or fixture) is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. The basis for modern dental implants is a biologic process called osseointegration, in which materials such as titanium form an intimate bond to the bone. A variable amount of healing time is required for osseointegration before either the dental prosthetic is attached to the implant or an abutment is placed which is set to hold a dental prosthetic/crown. The rise in dental tourism and surge in the prevalence of dental diseases are increasing the usage of dental implants, orthodontics, and prosthetics. Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of mispositioned teeth and jaws. It can also focus on modifying facial growth, known as dentofacial orthopedics. Incidences of dental diseases are set to rise as more and more people are exposed to the underlying causes, including sugar, tobacco, and alcohol. Oral diseases, including tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancers, affect almost half of the world’s population, with untreated dental decay the most common health condition worldwide. Thus, increasing the growth of the dental digital x-ray market during the forecast period 2020-2025.
- Rising demand for cosmetic dentistry
The rising demand for cosmetic dentistry is increasing the growth of the dental digital x-ray market. Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance (though not necessarily the functionality) of teeth, gums, and/or bites. It primarily focuses on improvement in dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment, and overall smile appearance. While traditional dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing, and treating oral disease, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of the teeth, mouth, and smile. In other words, restorative, general, and/or family dental practices address dental problems that require necessary treatment, whereas cosmetic dentistry provides elective – or desired – treatments or services. Cosmetic treatments may also provide restorative benefits. For example, dental fillings are a common procedure used to treat decayed teeth. Previously, most dental fillings were composed primarily of gold, amalgam, and other materials that left visible dark spots on the teeth. Thus, increasing the growth of the dental digital x-ray market during the forecast period 2020-2025.
