The dental digital X-ray market is witnessing high growth due to factors such as technological advancements, rapidly growing geriatric population, ability of digital systems to reduce diagnosis time and provide improved image quality, growing adoption of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), increase in dental disorders, and growing demand for cosmetic dentistry. Key players in the market are focusing on new product launches, partnerships and collaborations, acquisitions, and expansions to strengthen their positions in the market.
The dental digital X-ray market is segmented on the basis of product, type, application, end user, and region. On the basis of type, the dental digital X-ray imaging market is segmented into extraoral X-rays, intraoral X-rays, and hybrid X-ray imaging systems. The extraoral X-ray systems segment is further segmented into panoramic/cephalometric X-ray systems and cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) systems. CBCT systems offer lucrative growth opportunities and represent a new revenue pocket for the dental digital X-ray imaging market, owing to the growing dental implants market and increase in the number of vendors offering CBCT units in the dental market.
On the basis of applications, the dental digital X-ray market is segmented into diagnostic, therapeutic, cosmetic, and forensic. The diagnostic segment is poised to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the technological advancements, rising prevalence of dental disorders, rise in geriatric population, increasing oral health awareness, and rising disposable incomes in developing economies such as China and India.
North America dominates the dental digital X-ray market, followed by Europe. However, the dental digital X-ray market in Asia is expected to witness the highest growth. Factors such as growth in the geriatric population, focus of emerging and leading market players to expand in developing Asian markets, rise in disposable income, less stringent regulatory guidelines, improving healthcare infrastructure, and growth in medical tourism in the region are contributing to the growth of the Asian dental digital X-ray market.
