The dental lasers market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 470.3 million in 2022. From 2022 to 2026, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5%, with an estimated market value of US$ 560.4 million.
The increasing demand rate has been largely attributed to the increasing use of dental lasers in the treatment of dental diseases, including caries prevention, restorative removal and curing, cavity preparation, growth modulation, dentinal hypersensitivity, and other diagnostic purposes. Additionally, growing use of these tools in soft tissue applications like wound healing, removing hyperplastic tissue, photodynamic therapy for malignancies, and photostimulation of herpetic lesions can be linked to the continued bullish outlook for the global dental lasers market.
Global Dental Lasers Market Growth at High State of Refinement
Dental lasers have shown to be useful tools with high effectiveness, comfortable treatment, less bleeding, and more control of soft tissue. Additionally, laser-based photochemical reactions show promise for enhancing dentistry applications, particularly for focusing on cells, molecules, and pathogens. These are the crucial elements that are anticipated to support the market for dental lasers’ future growth worldwide. Additionally, the widespread insurance coverage of conservative soft tissue procedures using dental lasers may spur faster growth in demand for these tools.
Dental Surgical Lasers to Witness Maximum Demand
Based on product type, dental surgical lasers will continue to dominate dental welding lasers, holding about 80% of the market share for dental lasers globally. This is due to the Nd:YAG and Er:YAG lasers’ rising popularity.
Diode lasers are anticipated to continue being popular in dentistry; during the assessment period, it is anticipated that soft tissue procedures will generate approximately US$ 196 million in revenue globally. Diode laser labial frenectomy is known to significantly reduce suturing and bleeding during intervention, resulting in shorter intervention times, less post-operative pain, and quicker wound healing. This is in addition to their effectiveness in treating periodontal diseases.
In contrast to Nd:YAG lasers, which have been constrained in dental procedures due to temperature build-up around the implants causing the surface to melt despite their excellent sterilisation properties, CO2 lasers and Er:YAG lasers have demonstrated higher success rates. Er:YAG is positioned in the fast-growing pedestal of the global dental lasers market due to its capacity to offer conservative restorative treatment in hard tissue application.
Three Key Players to Control Global Dental Lasers Market
With roughly 87% of the market share each, Biolase, Inc., Dentsply Sirona, and AMD Laser dominate the highly consolidated global market for dental lasers. With a market share of roughly 53%, Biolase, Inc. is thought to be the market leader in dental lasers worldwide, while the other two players hold a combined market share of more than 34%. High technological intensity and proprietary technology are still key contributors to the high market consolidation, according to the report. The players’ continued focus on developing technologically cutting-edge products, strengthening their product portfolio, and establishing their market presence will likely open up new opportunities for revenue growth.
