The U.S. dental welding laser market is expected to remain relatively stable over the next several years. Slow growth in this market is attributed to the maturity of the market, as well as the steady decline in the number of dental laboratories across the United States. The total dental welding laser market comprises two market segments: benchtop systems and standalone systems.

More and more laboratories, particularly small and medium sized ones, find themselves look for more compact, portable units, which subsequently drives sales of benchtop units. This is even more apparent when looking at the companies that dominate the overall welding laser space, as it is comprised mostly of companies that offer benchtop solutions.

While all laboratories can benefit from having a welding laser, standalone systems are considerably more expensive, and most smaller-sized laboratories cannot afford to invest in such machines. As a result, only a limited number of medium to large-sized laboratories would opt for a standalone system. Since the number of laboratories with the capacity to purchase standalone systems that don’t already own one is rapidly declining. However, the market for benchtop systems will continue to gain more dominance in market share throughout the following years as the potential for standalone system sales diminishes.

LaserStar Technologies led the U.S. dental welding laser market in 2016. The company is headquartered in Riverside, Rhode Island and manufactures a wide range of welding lasers for jewelry, aerospace, auto, electronics, dental and other medical applications. LaserStar’s success in the dental industry is owed to its distribution partner, Henry Schein, the global leader in dental supplies and equipment distribution.

LaserStar supplies a large variety of benchtop and standalone welding lasers, including the iWeld® 990 and 970 benchtop systems, as well as the 7000 Series standalone system. The iWeld® series is LaserStar’s best-selling laser welder and is suitable for a broad range of applications. Even though it is a benchtop unit, it is by far the most popular option, often sold to dental laboratories of all sizes, from small to large.
