Market Trends of Global Dental 3D Printing

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Dental 3D Printing Market according to our research experts:

The Orthodontics Segment is Expected to Hold a Major Market Share in the Dental 3D Printing Market

The segment is majorly driven by the rising number of misalignment (Malocclusion) and gaps in the teeth, as well as rising demand for cosmetic dentistry. As per the article published in January 2020 on 'Prevalence Of Developmental Maxillary Midline Diastema In Children- A Retrospective Study,' Children of age 6-8 years showed the maximum prevalence of presence of midline diastema at 57.1%, followed by the age group 8-10 years 36.7%, the least number of maxillary midline diastema was seen in the age group 10-12 years 6%.

As per the World Health Organization (WHO) Statistics of 2021, malocclusion is one of the most important oral health problems after caries and periodontal disease. Its prevalence is highly variable and is estimated to be between 39% and 93% in children and adolescents. Considering the other anomalies, crowding was one of the most frequent, with a prevalence of up to 84%, followed by spacing, which reached a frequency of 60%. Also, as per the article published in June 2021 by Maxillo-Faciale Clinique MFML, Class 1 dental malocclusion is the most common type of malocclusion. Approximately 50% to 55% of children between the ages of 6 and 17 have some form of Class 1 malocclusion.

As technology continues to advance and as orthodontic treatment becomes more affordable, an increasing number of adults are choosing to invest in orthodontics. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that children should be seen for their first orthodontic constellation before the age of 8. The rising demand and need for orthodontics treatment are driving the overall growth of the dental 3D printing market.

Dental 3D Printing Market Share

North America is Expected to Hold a significant share in the market and is expected to do the Same in the Forecast Period.

From the initial shutdown in March 2020 to the current day, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant influence on the dentistry profession. The main consequence of the pandemic on dental practices in Canada, according to an article published in February 2021 titled "The Biggest Impact of COVID-19 on Dentistry," has been a decline in revenue. As dentists were unable to practice during the initial lockdown, revenue suffered the most. However, as the country approaches a year of living with the pandemic, it has been demonstrated that dentistry is a critical service, and practices have been able to stay open despite new lockdowns around the country."

Also, as per another article published in September 2020, "A New Study Explores COVID-19's Significant Impact on the Dental Industry, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the health care system, including the dental industry. In March and April, when the pandemic first became rampant in the United States, many dental practices closed except for emergencies. Even after they reopened, changes were noticeable. According to an American Dental Association poll of dentists taken the week of August, 98.9% of respondents were open, but only 47.6% reported "business as usual"; 51.3% were open but had "lower patient volume than usual."

The expanding elderly population, robust medical infrastructure, the presence of important market competitors, and improvements in preventative and restorative dental treatments are all driving factors in the North American market. Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) strives to eliminate inequities in cavity rates and to incorporate oral health programs into chronic disease prevention and medical care. North America will emerge as the most potential, high-growth market in the projection term as a result of the confluence of all of these variables.
