According to the most recent report by Emergent Research, the size of the global dental 3D printing market is anticipated to reach USD 12.46 billion in 2028, growing at a steady CAGR of 26.5%. Rising dental disease prevalence and increased demand for treatments can be linked to the steady revenue growth of the global dental 3D printing industry. As 3D printed dental components and teeth can be precisely manufactured and engineered for each patient’s unique demands, dental 3D printing enables quicker treatment, quick recovery, and superior results.
Dental crowns, the most often used components in dental operations to repair damaged or replace lost teeth, are produced via dental 3D printing. The usage of dental 3D printing can greatly reduce the time and cost needed for generating unique customized dental parts due to the huge variances in tooth structure of various people.
The COVID-19 pandemic had a detrimental impact on the dental 3D printing sector at first since many dental offices, clinics, and laboratories had to close early in 2020 owing to lockdowns and quarantine regulations. As a result, all unnecessary dental treatments were put off, and there were much fewer outpatient cases during this time. The number of patients declined once lockdown and quarantine protocols were removed in the majority of the world’s countries because fewer people were willing to undergo the close-contact therapy necessary for dental treatments. However, once dental services return to normal, recovery can be witnessed in most regions, particularly in North America and Europe. Particularly in China and India, the dental market in the Asia Pacific region has taken longer to recover.
Growing need for both preventive and aesthetic dental care:
The propensity to undergo pricey cosmetic operations has increased along with rising disposable incomes, especially among the older population. The demand for dental restorative products and cosmetic procedures like whitening and polishing is rising on a global scale. Additionally, both in developed and developing nations, there has been a rise in the demand for preventive dental care along with the adoption of cosmetic dentistry, primarily as a result of changing lifestyles and an increased focus on dental aesthetics, which is where dental 3D scanners and printers come into play.
Some of the Report’s Important Highlights
Stratasys Ltd. announced the launch of a breakthrough 3D printer in March 2021 to give dentistry facilities 3D printing efficiency together with accurate and realistic models built with PolyJet technology.
Dental anatomical research models, drilling & cutting guides, and prototype design are all made using selective laser sintering. The advantages of the selective laser sintering technique include the simplicity of autoclavability, full mechanical functionality of printed products, and lower cost of 3D printed models in the case of mass manufacturing.
Dental 3D printing is widely used in the production of dental implants and offers accurate implant size, form, color, and placement to provide a good match to the shape of each patient’s teeth. Dental implant workflow can be enhanced with the help of 3D printers, which also meet the high-fidelity precision needs of such applications. In addition to handling dental implants, dental 3D printers can also create the drill guides needed to complete specific dental operations.
Due to the widespread use of 3D printing technology in the medical field and increased demand for cosmetic dental treatments, the dental 3D printing market in North America accounted for the biggest revenue share in 2020. Additionally, the existence of top industry players who offer dental 3D printing solutions and rising R&D spending are fostering market expansion.
Key players in the market include Stratasys Ltd., Dentsply Sirona Inc., EnvisionTEC, 3D Systems Inc., Straumann Group, Formlabs, Roland DG Corporation, Renishaw PLC, Carbon Inc., and DWS Systems SRL.
