Global Intraoral Scanner Market Soars in Growth, to Grow at 10.6% CAGR, thanks to Rising Efficacy in Dental Applications

The global intraoral scanner market will likely reach $592 million in valuation by 2023, rising at 10.6% CAGR during 2020-2023 period. The market reached a modest valuation of $245 million in 2018, due to limited awareness of the procedures. Today, the awareness about a wide-ranging benefits of advanced technologies are widely known among healthcare professionals. The technology promises to overcome key challenges like easier treatment planning, communication with laboratories, case acceptance, reduction in treatment times, and reduced operative times, as well as storage requirements. The growing demand for the computer-aided technology, and advancements like 3D printed models remain major drivers for growth in the global intraoral scanner market. The advancement on the horizon like active, and passive techniques to reconstruct 3D fields remain a major promise for future growth in the global intraoral scanner market.

Rising Demand for Procedures like Smile Design Remains a Key Driver

One of the key drivers of growth in the dentistry field is the aesthetic treatments like smile design. It is in line with one of the biggest challenge in dentistry is to achieve customer satisfaction, which conventionally, remains difficult as 2D images often do not give a clear picture of procedural outcomes. Moreover, dentistry aesthetic treatments can be expensive, and irreversible. Hence, techniques like DSD or Digital Smile Designing are making their way into dentistry application to drive major growth for the global intraoral scanner market. The procedure allows patients to visualize their treatment beforehand, and presents a digital layout, ensuring predictable treatment. The procedure is likely to end analogue-based dental treatments as teeth remain a core part of the facial makeup, and smile design remains highly popular among young men, and women alike. The growing disposable income, rising demand for procedural knowledge, and association of aesthetics with potential growth in a wide range of professions remains a major factor for growth in the intraoral scanner market.

The Growing Accuracy, and Reliability of Procedures Remains a Key Driver of Growth

Growing research reports that intraoral scanners continue to become more accurate, and reliable in application. For example, according to Ender & Co-workers studies, intraoral scanner trueness remained between 20 m to 48 µm, while precision remained between 4µm and 16µm. On the other hand, traditional technology shows trueness, and precision between 20µm and 13µm respectively.  Moreover, among intraoral scans, the partial scans remain most accurate, and are widely used for dental applications. The modern intraoral technology remains challenging to apply for over five units of implants or teeth, as it becomes less accurate in such instances. Hence, the growth of intraoral scanner application in full-arch scans still remains limited, as conventional technology remains miles ahead of the current one. However, promising efficacy, and advantage over single unit, the growing need to store plaster models for patients, and lowered costs of storage, and consumables remain promising factors for growth for the global intraoral scanner market.
