This market research report identifies Carestream Health, Danaher, Dentsply Sirona, Midmark, and Planmeca to be some of the key vendors in the global market. It also presents a detailed segmentation of the market by product type (general X-ray imaging system, CBCT X-ray imaging system, intraoral cameras, and intraoral scanners and sensors), by method (extraoral and intraoral), by end-user (clinics and laboratories, hospitals, and research institutes), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Global dental imaging market overview

According to the dental imaging industry analysis, the global dental imaging market will grow steadily at a CAGR of above 8% by 2021. One of the primary drivers for this market is the rising edentulous population coupled with the increasing demand for oral care. Factors such as age, periodontal diseases, dental caries, and other dental conditions are some of the main reasons for this rapid increase in the demand for dental imaging.

Also, since oral health is linked to cardiovascular diseases, low birth weights in pregnancy, and transmission of flu, private and government organizations are taking initiatives to avoid such health problems. For instance, Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has partnered with agencies such as the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Periodontology to improve surveillance of periodontal diseases in the US adult population. Consequently, such initiatives will create awareness among the population and increase the demand for global dental imaging market during the forecast period.

Dental imaging industry analysis based on geography

In terms of geographical regions, the Americas were the major revenue contributor to the market during 2016. The growing prevalence of oral diseases such as tooth decay, chronic bad breath, and periodontal diseases, and bleeding gums are some of the major factors for the dominance of the dental imaging market in the region. Also, the growing number of dental implant procedures and advances in dentomaxillofacial surgeries is driving the market in North America. Panoramic X-ray imaging equipment is required to conduct a 3D imaging analysis. Restoration of dental implants, which can often be complex, can be simplified using X-ray imaging and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) systems. Moreover, the emergence of medical imaging, which helps in soft tissue examination, temporomandibular joint examination, and plaque detection will further propel the market growth in the region in the next few years.

Dental imaging market scope for key vendors

The global dental imaging market is dominated by tier-I players that have strong positions compared to tier-II/III vendors. The advances in technology and product upgrades is the basis of competition among vendors. This increasing competition has given the opportunity to the regional and local vendors to gain higher market share.

Leading vendors in the market are

  • Carestream Health
  • Danaher
  • Dentsply Sirona
  • Midmark
  • Planmeca

Dental imaging market segment forecasts by the methods

  • Extraoral dental imaging
  • Intraoral dental imaging

During 2016, the intraoral dental imaging dominated the dental imaging market and accounted for a major part of the overall market share. Intraoral imaging equipment provides minute details about the root and bone structure of the tooth. The system also helps dentists check the status of developing teeth and monitor the health of teeth and jawbone. These advantages have contributed significantly to the dominance of the intraoral dental imaging segment in the global market.

Dental imaging market development based on end-users 

  • Dental clinics and laboratories
  • Hospitals
  • Dental research institutes

In this market study, analysts have estimated the dental clinics and laboratories to dominate the dental imaging market during the forecast period. The adoption of better technologies such as 3D imaging and digital dentistry in the dental services have contributed to the growth of this segment over the last few years.
