Market Overview

The dental x-ray systems market is expected to register a CAGR of 8.2% during the forecast period. X-rays are becoming an important part of the dental care plan. These x-rays are commonly used for the diagnostics and also for preventive measures to aid oral problems. X-rays are a kind of radiation, which is generally absorbed by tissues (denser tissues), and these rays pass through the soft tissues. As bones and teeth are the dense tissues, they absorb the rays and form an image. The dental x-ray systems market is primarily driven by the rising geriatric population, increasing the burden of dental diseases, and recent technological advancements in dental imaging methodologies, which are enabling a more accurate diagnosis of dental disorders. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), half of the individuals in the United States aged 30 or older have periodontitis, which is a more advanced form of periodontal disease, and this equals approximately 64.7 million individuals in the United States. In addition, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), estimated that severe periodontal (gum) disease is the 11th most prevalent disease globally. Furthermore, increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry is also supplementing the market growth. Thus, owing to the above factors, the market is expected to grow in the coming years.

Key Market Trends

Digital X-ray Systems Segment is Expected to Hold a Major Market Share in the Dental X-Ray Systems Market

The digital x-ray segment is expected to register significant growth. An increasing number of medical specialists are upgrading their analog systems to digital ones, owing to benefits, like increased speeds and flexibility. Furthermore, current generations of digital x-ray systems are equipped with the capabilities of integrated storage and data distribution tools, allowing seamless integration with the existing digital medical device infrastructure and widely used telehealth and EHR systems.

Government organizations are also promoting the adoption of digital x-ray systems. The United States Federal Agency of Medicare and Medicaid Services introduced a policy to decrease Medicare reimbursements by 20%, for the medical tests employing analog x-ray systems. Thus, the procedural and operational advantages enabled by digital systems, coupled with government initiatives, are fueling the higher adoption of digital x-ray systems.

Dental X-Ray Systems Market Trends

North America is Expected to Hold a Significant Share in the Market and Expected to do Same in the Forecast Period

North America expected to hold a major market share in the dental x-ray systems market. The primary factors behind the large market size are high awareness among the patient population and high replacement rates of medical technologies. According to the American Dental Association (ADA) estimates, there are 10,658 orthodontists currently practicing in the United States, which translates to about 3.27 orthodontists per every 100,000 population. Additionally, the rising geriatric population in this region is likely to contribute toward the growth of the dental digital x-ray systems market.
