Increasing prevalence of dental diseases, as well as high demand for dental aesthetics in developed countries, will propel the dental CAD/CAM market growth. Also, rising number of market players involved in developing innovative and highly efficient dental CAD/CAM equipment is augmenting the market expansion across the globe. Additionally, increased adoption of CAD/CAM technology in dentistry and its advantages over conventional restorations has played an instrumental role in enhancing the demand for CAD/CAM based restorations.

Dental CAD/CAM is a technology that involves two parts: computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM). The dental CAD/CAM technology was introduced to simplify the process of making dental restoration. As the technology involves digital operations, it enables dentists to control the outcome of the procedures and helps in providing desired product output. Dental CAD/CAM also helps in reducing the total time of the procedure significantly.

On the other hand, recent outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has forced dentists to postpone all the non-emergency procedures, thereby impacting revenues and budgets of dentists. Hence, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a slight impact on the sale of dental CAD/CAM equipment.

Rising number of dental procedures will fuel the dental CAD/CAM market demand

Over the years, there has been significant growth in terms of awareness regarding oral hygiene among the younger population. With rising awareness, the demand for dental CAD/CAM procedures has increased over the years. Some of the common dental procedures include bonding, braces, extractions, dentures, bridges, crowns, and implants.

Increase in number of dental procedures across the globes, especially in the developed nation will spur the dental CAD/CAM market value. As per the reports of Atlas Dental, in 2017, about 69,000 dental operations were performed in German hospitals. In addition, according to the Association of Dental Implantology, about 130,000 dental implants are placed in the UK every year. With the advancement in technologies, increase in number of dental procedures are being carried out with precision and lesser cost. Hence, this is resulting in growing number of people undergoing dental CAD/CAM procedures including dental restorations and prosthodontics, boosting the market revenue.

Increasing demand for small scaled dental CAD/CAM systems will result in the market demand

In-lab systems segment in the dental CAD/CAM market accounted for more than USD 1.01 billion in 2020. In-lab systems, also known as laboratory-based systems, are the large-scale CAD/CAM systems that are primarily used in dental laboratories where the inflow of restoration is high. This type of dental CAD/CAM system involves a complete package of components such as scanners, designing software, manufacturing software, and milling machines or 3D printers. All these components work in a synchronised manner to make the process efficient and faster with desired output.

Laboratory-based CAD/CAM systems are expensive and require large initial capital along with recurring annual maintenance costs. Dental CAD/CAM systems offer several advantages over traditional methods as the dental CAD/CAM restorations are precise, and do not require a trial & error process, thus reducing time. Rising acceptance of CAD/CAM systems in dental laboratories and clinics is likely to propel the growth of in-lab systems segment

Growing usage of 3D printers as a substitute to milling machines will offer the significant industry growth opportunities 

The dental CAD/CAM market for hardware segment is projected to witness a 5% growth rate by 2027. Hardware is the major component of the dental CAD/CAM systems that take up large share with respect to total cost. Dental scanners are used for intraoral scans of patients to analyse the share and size of the jaws. Milling machines have been used for manufacturing dental restorations for decades. However, with the invention of 3D printers and their incorporation into dentistry, 3D printers are being used as a substitute for milling machines to manufacture dental prosthetics with utmost precision. Thus, development of novel products and their increasing usage across the globe will accelerate the industry expansion.

Rising demand for chairside CAD/CAM systems in dental clinics will create the substantial market growth opportunities
