Dental Equipment Market By Product (Systems & Parts, Dental Radiology Equipment, Laboratory Equipment, Dental Lasers, Hygiene Maintenance Devices, Other Equipment) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

The dental equipment market will exhibit healthy growth during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

The global dental equipment market was worth $5,039.6 million in 2017 and is expected to be worth $7,951.5 million by 2026. Factors characterizing the growth of this market are the globally growing older population, the rising prevalence of oral diseases coupled with increased spending on dental care, and mounting technological advances in dental equipment. Novel technology-enabled dental handpieces provide higher efficiency and reduce the procedural time in the tissue removal procedure.

The new technologies allow a motor with a speed range of 100-400,000 RPM and a constant torque to be used to treat hard tissues. These devices are equipped with an automatic reversing feature for various endodontic procedures, thereby gaining popularity among dental care professionals. According to the International DOI Foundation, the global oral health burden was US$ 442.0 billion in 2015, with direct dental disease treatment costs totaling US$ 298.0 billion each year.

According to the American Dental Association (ADA), national dental care expenditures were US$ 124.0 billion in 2016, up from US$ 120.0 billion in 2015 and US$ 114.0 billion in 2014. As per the data published by the World Health Organization (WHO), the worldwide population aged 60 years and above has surged from 841.0 million in 2013 to 962.3 million in 2017 and is projected to cross 2.0 billion by the end of 2050. This population is more likely to develop oral health diseases, thereby assisting in market growth.

Market Synopsis

The Systems and Parts Segment to Command the Market from 2018 to 2026

The systems and parts segment is further categorized into instrument delivery systems, vacuums and compressors, cone-beam computed tomography (CT) systems, casting machines, furnaces and ovens, electrosurgical instruments, and computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) systems.

The CAD/CAM segment dominated the market in 2017 as these techniques have technological superiority and quickly substitute die-casting techniques. The cone-beam computed tomography (CT) systems segment would register a comparatively higher CAGR over the forecast period as these systems capture images of tissues and adjacent parts of the tooth and help in delivering precise treatment.

Because of the presence of supportive healthcare infrastructure and the residence of key market players, North America led the market in 2017.

North America is expected to dominate the market throughout the forecast period owing to government support for the formation of legislation, grants, and funding, the presence of key market participants, favorable healthcare infrastructure, higher adoption of dental equipment, and the availability of technologically advanced products. Technological developments related to novel equipment, including digital X-rays for tooth cavity detection and high-resolution screening systems, are supporting the supremacy of the region.

Europe is following North America in terms of revenue, which is attributed to the rising demand for cosmetic dentistry, the rising incidence of oral cancer, and increasing dental caries and trauma cases in children. According to the WHO, presently, the incidence of oral cancer ranges from 5 to 10 cases per 100,000 individuals in European countries.

India is swiftly catching up in dental equipment manufacturing and becoming a manufacturing hub to supply dental equipment and materials to other countries, including Africa, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and parts of the Middle East. India has more than 5,000 dental laboratories, 297+ dental institutes, and around 309 dental colleges that are approved by the Dental Council of India (DCI).

Furthermore, the surging number of dental colleges in the country will propel the demand for dental equipment, thereby contributing to regional growth. Additionally, the presence of a large patient pool improved healthcare infrastructure, and growing awareness about oral health-related products among patients in China, India, and Japan are expected to register the fastest market growth.

The presence of international market players creates market penetration challenges for new entrants.

Key companies in this industry are Danaher Corporation, Dentsply Sirona, 3M, BIOLASE, Inc., GC Corporation, Carestream Health, Institut Straumann AG, Patterson Dental Supply, Inc. (a subsidiary of Patterson Companies, Inc.), A-dec, Inc., and Planmeca Oy. These manufacturers are implementing organic and inorganic business growth strategies such as vertical and horizontal integration, new product launches, joint ventures (JVs), collaborations and partnerships, mergers and acquisitions (M&As), divestitures, and operational and geographical expansions.

These players are focused on strengthening their presence in various segments. For instance, Dentsply Sirona has a stronghold in the dental technologies and equipment segment, such as CAD/CAM systems, imaging systems, and treatment centers. Some market players are considering cost parameters when targeting a cost-sensitive customer base in emerging countries such as China, India, Brazil, and Eastern European countries.

In September 2018, BIOLASE, Inc. launched the #KeepDramaAtTheMovies campaign in order to educate patients and dentists about its minimally invasive (MI) dental lasers, namely the BIOLASE Waterlase. In July 2018, the company hosted a series of BIOLASE User Community events in order to provide dental offices with an informal platform to discuss the technical and practical aspects of laser dentistry.
