Increasing number of dental disorders drive the market growth
Globally, the occurrence of dental disorders such as dental caries and periodontal disease is on the rise. This can largely be attributed to factors such as increasing life expectancy and growth in the elderly population. Worldwide, around 60% to 90% of school children and nearly 100% of adults have dental caries (source: WHO). In addition to this, increasing incidences of oral cancer have also given rise to an increase in the demand for advanced treatments in dentistry. In 2013, around 7,591 cases of oral cancer were diagnosed in the U.K.; that is, around 21 cases were diagnosed every day (Source: Cancer Research U.K.). Moreover, Cancer Research U.K. estimated that in 2012, more than 300,000 new cases of lip and oral cavity cancer were diagnosed worldwide with incidence rates varying across regions. Apart from dental caries and oral cancer, the growth in the decayed, missing, and filled teeth (DMFT) index is also expected to fuel the demand for endodontic treatments such as root canals and periodontal treatments such as scaling and root planning.
The growing number of dental disorders will thus help boost the demand for advanced dental imaging systems such as dental digital X-rays, which are required to diagnose and plan the treatment for these disorders.
North America is expected to account for the largest share of this market in 2015
Geographically, the dental digital X-ray market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia, and the Rest of the World (RoW). North America is expected to account for the largest share of this market in 2015. However, the Asian market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR.
Growth in the Asian market can be attributed to growth in the geriatric population, focus of emerging and leading market players to expand their presence in the developing Asian markets, rise in disposable income, less stringent regulatory guidelines, improving healthcare infrastructure, and growth in medical tourism in the region.
