Market Report Description

The Global Dental CAD/CAM Market size is expected to reach $4.6 billion by 2031, rising at a market growth of 9.4% CAGR during the forecast period.  

According to United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA), in 2023, in India, the current elderly population of 153 million (aged 60 and above) is expected to reach a staggering 347 million by 2050. Moreover, tooth loss is more common among older adults due to factors such as decay, gum disease, trauma, and age-related changes in the oral tissues. Thus, the Asia Pacific region is expected to capture 29% revenue share in the market by the year 2031. CAD/CAM technology is crucial in restoring oral function and aesthetics for edentulous patients by fabricating implant-supported dentures and fixed prostheses.

CAD/CAM technology streamlines the entire dental restoration process, from initial consultation to final restoration delivery. Traditional methods involving physical impressions, manual modeling, and outsourcing to dental laboratories are time-consuming and prone to errors. CAD/CAM systems eliminate many of these steps by digitizing the process, leading to faster turnaround times and reduced labor costs. Hence, the time-saving and cost-efficient benefits of CAD/CAM technology play a crucial role in driving its widespread adoption in the dental industry

Additionally, More and more patients are looking for dental procedures that will improve the look of their teeth in addition to restoring function. CAD/CAM technology enables dentists to create highly customized aesthetic restorations such as crowns, veneers, and inlays/onlays that closely match the natural teeth in shape, color, and clarity. Patients are more inclined to choose dental practices that utilize advanced materials to achieve aesthetically pleasing results. The rising patient demand for aesthetic dental treatments has propelled the market.

Rural areas often lack access to advanced dental technology, including CAD/CAM systems. The limited availability of digital scanners, milling machines, and associated software in rural dental clinics or laboratories can impede the adoption of CAD/CAM technology. Without access to these essential components, dental professionals in rural areas may rely on traditional fabrication methods or outsourcing services, hindering the integration of CAD/CAM technology into their practice workflows. Thus, limited infrastructure in rural areas can indeed obstruct the adoption and growth of the dental CAD/CAM market.

Moreover, The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the market. In the early stages of the pandemic, numerous dental practices worldwide experienced closures or limitations on non-essential dental procedures due to lockdown measures and infection control protocols. This significantly reduced patient visits and elective treatments, including those typically utilizing CAD/CAM technology for restorative procedures. Also, the economic uncertainty caused by the pandemic led some dental practices to postpone or cancel investments in new technology, including CAD/CAM systems. Therefore, the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the market.
