Dental X-Ray — Product, Type, Application Analysis and Key Playersby Susan Hill Business Consultant
The global dental X-ray market size is expected to reach USD 2.4 billion by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The dental X-ray market is anticipated to witness lucrative growth during the period 2016 - 2024. This growth is attributed to a majority of factors concerning the prevalence of oral diseases worldwide.
The key factors contributing to the growth of this vertical are the surging incidence of dental diseases, rising demand for dental digital X-rays in oral disease treatments, numerous technological advancements that have revolutionized the obsolete imaging modalities, and other demographic determinants. However, the high cost of digital radiography systems is expected to restrain the growth of the sector.
The dental X-ray market has been classified by type, product, and application. By type, the market is classified into digital and analog. On the basis of product, it is distinguished by intraoral and extraoral X-ray systems with intraoral being the most common type of dental imaging system in use. The intraoral segment is further classified into bitewing, occlusal, and periapical. The extra-oral radiography systems are of two types, namely panoramic and cone beam computed tomography. On the basis of applications, this category is classified as diagnostic and therapeutic, cosmetic, and forensic dentistry areas.
Further key findings from the study suggest:
- As of 2015, in
North America, the U.S. is estimated to be the highest grossing market due
to the high prevalence of oral and gum-related diseases in the region.
- Digital X-ray
systems are gaining significant popularity, though analog systems continue
to exist at large. The digital sensor technology segment has already been
studied to be growing at a rapid pace owing to the huge necessity and
demand for technologically advanced products in the U.S. market.
- Asia Pacific is
expected to be the fastest growing region during the forecast period. This
growth is expected due to the steep rise in the healthcare spending in
countries including China and India.
- The Cone Beam
Computed Tomography (CBCT) segment has recorded the highest growth rate
among all other extraoral radiography systems. They have been outstripping
the growth of extraoral systems, such as cephalometric and panoramic
systems, ascribable to its ability to provide images with increased
clarity of contrasting structures, thus allowing better diagnosis.
- The industry comprises several local as well as global players. Some of the major players of this industry include Sirona Dental Systems, Inc., Planmeca Oy, Carestream Health, Inc., and Danaher Corporation.
