The global market for digital impression systems is anticipated to grow at a steady CAGR of 17.5%, from US$ 5.8 Bn in 2022 to US$ 28.9 Bn in 2032.
The most significant effect on the global sales of digital impression systems is the growing understanding of the demand for digital impression system technology over conventional impression methods, such as simple, easy, and exact scanning with little effort required for both the patient and the dentist.
The use of these systems in dental procedures has substantially risen since they eliminate the laborious and uncomfortable process of producing an elastomeric imprint for dental applications.
Additionally, the need for digital impression systems lowers the overall time and increases productivity in dental applications like restoration, which favorably impacts the market’s growth. Retakes are also less frequently required.
The popularity of digital imprint system tools makes it possible to quickly create a three-dimensional (3-D) replica of teeth. For instance, Sirona Dental Systems, Inc. provides the CEREC Connect portal, which enables a dentist to use a digital impression system technology and send the data to a dental laboratory connected to Sirona’s network, making it simple for the laboratory to create the dental restoration and return it to the dentist by/during the patient’s second appointment.
To make an elastomeric impression, an impression tray, and an impression material, you need alginate, tray glue, occlusal registration material, and other supplies. Furthermore, materials need a certain amount of time to set if the activity emits dangerous fumes.
How fiercely competitive is the market for digital impression systems?
Strong sales of digital impression systems over traditional impression systems are driven by benefits such as ease of handling, lightweight design, and enhanced image precision.
Additionally, increased market growth is being fueled by improved patient comfort and dentist endorsement of these devices. On the other side, the high expenses associated with the creation of diverse forms of media culture restrict the market growth.
