The Dental Market is Estimated To Witness High Growth Owing To Increased Adoption of Advanced Dental Technologies

The dental market is estimated to be valued at US$ 36609.25 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.7% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
The dental market comprises products and equipment used in various dental procedures. This includes dental crowns and bridges which are fixed dental prosthetics used for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants which serve as artificial roots for replacement teeth are also part of this market. Such products provide strong structural support and restore proper functioning and aesthetics. The demand for advanced dental treatments has been increasing owing to benefits like durability, comfort and natural appearance.

Market key trends:
One of the key trends driving the Global Dental Market is the increased adoption of advanced dental technologies. The introduction of CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing) technology has enabled digital fabrication of dental prosthetics like crowns and bridges directly at dental clinics. Such chairside CAD/CAM systems allow dentists to digitally design and mill crowns and bridges in a single appointment. This streamlines the workflow without need for laboratory processing and delivers same day results to patients. Chairside systems are gaining popularity over traditional lab-fabricated prosthetics due to benefits like convenience, reduced costs and timely treatment. Growing dental tourism in emerging markets and rising disposable incomes are also promoting the demand for innovative dental technologies globally.
