Dental Digital X-ray Market Size

Dental Digital X-ray Market size was worth more than USD 4 billion in 2022 and will expand at over 11.5% CAGR from 2023-2032. Increasing prevalence of dental disorders will propel the need for dental digital X-ray equipment across healthcare settings.

Dental Digital X-ray Market

Digital X-ray technologies allow dentists to access detailed images of the teeth, supporting structures, and oral conditions, helping make accurate and timely diagnoses. This improves overall patient output by preventing delay in the detection of dental diseases such as infections, tooth decay, and periodontal disease. As per WHO, severe periodontal diseases affect around 19% of the global adult population due to poor oral hygiene and excessive tobacco consumption.

Moreover, the growing geriatric population represents a massive patient pool suffering from dental disorders due to aging. The elderly group has substantial dental care needs with routine check-ups, planning relevant treatments, and diagnosing dental conditions, necessitating the establishment of digital X-ray setups. Age-related decay, tooth loss, and other conditions make geriatrics more susceptible to severe dental diseases. The WHO estimates the geriatric population to triple between 2015 and 2050, thus indicating a substantial need for dental diagnosis and care.

High cost of digital dental X-ray devices may impact the industry progress. Rapid digitization and technological advancements have led to the integration of next-generation image processing software, digital sensors, and integration capabilities. While these features have improved image quality and manipulation, they have also contributed to the escalating cost of these devices. Dental practices are also seeking infrastructure upgradation with the help of digital X-ray sensors and software which require sufficient capital and funding, limiting product adoption across several underdeveloped nations.  

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the dental digital X-ray market. The outbreak compelled several dental practices to implement stringent infection control protocols and guidelines to reduce the rising of transmission. Dental clinics emerged as one of the high-risk zones due to the exposure and contact between patients and dentists, increasing the need for digital and no-contact technologies.

Unlike traditional film-based equipment, digital dental X-ray system allows dentists to capture and view images safely. Moreover, the pandemic accelerated the adoption of teledentistry and remote consultations, encouraging industry players to launch innovative at-home imaging solutions to avoid in-person visits. The pandemic-driven virtualization trends spurred the demand for digital X-ray devices.

Dental Digital X-ray Market Trends

The rising prevalence of dental carries and growing dental disease burden will fuel the need for adequate dental care and diagnostic solutions. Additionally, the rapidly aging population will augment market growth. Industry players are boosting innovation and developing next-generation digital devices to keep up with the current healthcare trends including at-home diagnostics, virtualization, and telehealth. Furthermore, the rising awareness regarding modern dental care and technological advancements will positively influence the industry outlook.

Dental Digital X-ray Market Analysis

Global Dental Digital X-ray Market Size, By Product, 2021 - 2032 (USD Billion)

Based on product, the dental digital x-ray market is bifurcated into analog x-ray systems and digital x-ray systems. Analog X-ray systems segment valuation will surpass USD 7 billion by 2032. Analog X-rays play a vital role in dental imaging applications across hospitals, dental practices, and imaging centers. These devices have gained significant popularity worldwide due to their ease of adoption and upgradation with the ongoing advancements in digital technologies. They offer a myriad of benefits including affordability, retrofit solutions, familiarity, and detailed image characteristics of analog systems. However, over the forthcoming period, the trend is set to shift toward digital X-ray systems as hospitals and healthcare settings seek the digitization of processes.

Global Dental Digital X-ray Market Share, By Type, 2022

In terms of type, the dental digital x-ray market is divided into intraoral, extraoral, and hybrid x-ray systems. The intraoral type X-ray systems segment was more than USD 2 billion in 2022. The rising demand for intraoral X-ray systems can be attributed to the close proximity of sensors to the area of interest which ensures fine-resolution imaging. This allows accurate diagnoses of root canal abnormalities, dental caries, periodontal diseases, and other dental conditions.  

Additionally, intraoral X-ray systems are relatively more cost-effective as compared to extraoral solutions such as panoramic or cone-beam CT systems. Intraoral devices are also cost-effective solutions for a wide range of dental practices from small clinics and solo practitioners to larger facilities, which may further amplify product demand.

U.S. Dental Digital X-ray Market Size, 2020 -2032 (USD Million)

From a regional perspective, North America dental digital x-ray market size will be worth over USD 4 billion by 2032. North America is home to countries such as the U.S., one of the early adopters of dental imaging technologies. Several factors including technological advancements, the growing need for next-generation diagnostic tools, and the rapid adoption of digital imaging in the field of dental care are fueling market growth in the region.

Moreover, robust healthcare infrastructure and favorable private and public funding in the digitization of hospitals will increase product adoption in the region. Furthermore, the increasing number of patients with dental diseases and the expanding geriatric population will boost modern dentistry and drive the demand for digital dental technologies.
