Dental CAD/CAM holds significance as it saves time and increases convenience for both the dental professional and the patient. It allows dentists to create dental restorations that are more precise and have a better fit, leading to improved patient outcomes. Also, it helps dental professionals to save on lab fees and materials, while patients can save on the cost of multiple appointments. In addition, as patients become more informed, the demand for more personalised care increases, therefore, dental professionals are using CAD/CAM technology to create custom dental restorations that match the patient's requirements and preferences.

Dental CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing) is a technology used in dentistry to produce and create dental restorations, including bridges, crowns, inlays, veneers, onlays, and implant restorations. A computer scanner is often used in the procedure to create a 3D image of the patient's teeth and gums. The software then makes a virtual model of the restoration using this data, which can be changed as per necessity. The finished design is then fed into a milling machine, which uses a block of material to precisely mill out the restoration in accordance with the digital design's parameters.

Increasing prevalence of dental diseases will propel the industry growth during the projected timeframe

Dental diseases are becoming increasingly prevalent globally. The two most common dental diseases are dental caries and periodontal disease. Slow adoption of oral health services, deteriorating living conditions and dietary habits are all directly linked to the current regional and global patterns of oral diseases. The danger of having poor oral health and hygiene in the population has increased, especially in urban settings, thereby resulting in an increase in the prevalence of dental disease. According to the Global Oral Health Status Report (2022) of World Health Organization, three out of every four of the almost 3.5 billion people are impacted by oral illnesses in middle-income countries. Primary tooth decay affects more than 510 million children worldwide, whereas permanent tooth decay is estimated to affect two billion people across the world.

Growing inclination towards CAD/CAM restorations will stimulate the market demand

Dental CAD/CAM market is segmented based on type into in-lab systems and in-office systems. In-lab systems segment held the largest revenue size over USD 3.5 billion in 2023 and is estimated to witness significant growth during the forecast period. The segment's expansion can be attributed to rising inclination towards CAD/CAM restorations and improved technologically advanced dental CAD/CAM disease treatment efficacy. The category is anticipated to experience increasing demand due to patients' growing preference for dental CAD/CAM for managing their dental conditions. Moreover, several benefits offered by CAD/CAM restorations such as accuracy, efficiency, aesthetics, durability will present the market with tremendous growth prospects. Also, an increase in the availability of products coupled with several other businesses working towards creating innovative technology will support the segment's revenue expansion.

Development of advanced hardware and software solutions for dental CAD/CAM

Dental CAD/CAM market is bifurcated based on the component including hardware and software. Hardware segment held largest revenue share of 75% in 2032. Intraoral scanners are an example of cutting-edge hardware solutions that capture digital imprints of the teeth instead of the more conventional physical impressions. The accuracy, speed, and patient comfort of these scanners are all improvising in order to address larger patient population.

Additionally, innovative software solutions have been created to enhance dental restoration design and production. These software alternatives include 3D printing software, which can make physical replicas of restorations, and sophisticated computer algorithms, which can design restorations more quickly and accurately. The application of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms to enhance the accuracy of restoration design and manufacturing is another new advancement in dental CAD/CAM industry. AI and ML systems are capable of scanning vast volumes of data and find patterns; hence these systems assist dentists in creating more accurate and realistic-looking restorations. Such benefits offered by the dental CAD/CAM will drive the market statistics.

Expanding sophisticated healthcare infrastructure and accessibility will drive the demand for dental CAD/CAM in homecare settings

Dental CAD/CAM market by end-use is segmented into dental clinics, dental laboratories, and dental milling centres. Dental clinics segment accounting for over 38% market share in 2022. With increasing demand for dental care services, the use of dental CAD/CAM is anticipated to elevate. These devices can be used for dental restorations including implants, dentures, etc. Thus, the expanding sophisticated dental infrastructure and accessibility will drive the demand for dental CAD/CAM. This is because dental CAD/CAM provide a more convenient and efficient way for patients, which can reduce the burden on healthcare facilities and improve patient outcomes.
