Digital Dentistry Market - Competitive Landscape and Trends by Forecast 2030

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 outbreak significantly impacted the market. Lockdowns, restrictions, and safety concerns created difficulties for dental practices worldwide. Digital dentistry solutions, however, were also adopted rapidly due to the pandemic since they offered advantages, including remote consultations, reduced chairside times, and greater infection control. The dental organizations had a short halt during the pandemic's initial phase, but digital dentistry solutions allowed clinics to rebound and adapt to the new normal. The emphasis on contactless producer, better patient communication, and increased infection control procedures helped the market remain durable and expand during and after the pandemic.

Market Growth Factors

Rising rates of oral and dental conditions

The prevalence of cavities, dry mouth, and ailments like trauma, infection, and tooth loss is rising worldwide. According to data published by the WHO in March 2023, over 3.5 billion people encounter oral disorders globally. The same source also estimates more than 1 billion cases of severe periodontal diseases worldwide, affecting about 19% of the adult population. Nearly 7% of adults aged 20 and older worldwide are estimated to have lost all their teeth. A significantly higher global frequency of 23% has been predicted for adults 60 years or older. Modern dental equipment is frequently required as a result of the rise in dental procedures required to fix problems such as overcrowding, overbites, gaps between teeth, and crooked teeth. Due to the increase in dental and oral conditions, the market is expected to expand.

Digital data, AI, and technological advances for effective disease assessment

Population-based linkage of patient-level data may provide access to previously unexplored research areas, facilitating the identification of new or suspected contributory variables for oral diseases and enhancing the creation of novel treatment paradigms. The research on the association between oral health preventative and treatment techniques may be improved using artificial intelligence (AI) applications. To improve the provision of healthcare services, digital imaging could allow precise surveillance of the prevalence and distribution of oral problems. As a result of the rising acceptance of digital data, artificial intelligence, and technical improvements for efficient disease assessment, the market is predicted to expand significantly throughout the forecast period.

Market Restraining Factors

Data privacy and ethical concerns

The ethical concerns surrounding teledentistry, which uses telecommunications and information technology to provide dental care, educate people about oral health, and promote awareness of it, are key barriers to the market's growth. The widespread adoption of digital dentistry is constrained, as with other big data technologies, by data security issues and patient anonymity and confidentiality concerns. This is because networked transfer through insecure channels might render it easier for unauthorized third parties to access sensitive patient data. The current barriers to the adoption of cutting-edge resources for enhanced digital dental workflows are, thus, highlighted by the market.
