The growing prevalence of dental ailments such as dental caries (tooth decay), periodontal disorders, tooth loss, and oral cancers is propelling market forward. For instance, the World Health Organisation (WHO) reports that 514 million children worldwide suffer from primary tooth decay, whereas 2 billion adults suffer from caries of the permanent teeth. Oral illnesses affect about 3.5 billion people worldwide. Therefore, growing prevalence of dental disease requires an oral health education, accessible dental care services, promotion of healthy lifestyle habits, and public health initiatives aimed at improving overall oral health awareness.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the dental imaging market. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many non-essential dental treatments were postponed or delayed in order to reduce the danger of viral transmission. Only emergency situations and traumatic dental injuries were handled. As a result, there was a decrease in demand for dental imaging. In addition, interruptions in the global supply chain resulted in decreased and delayed availability of medical equipment, which contributed to the price increase.  Furthermore, the pandemic increased the use of tele dentistry and remote consultations as a substitute to in-person appointments. The decreased necessity for imaging in remote consultations influenced the demand for imaging equipment.

Dental imaging Market Trends
