Industry Trends

The most impactful factor limiting growth of the digital dentistry market is the emergence of relatively inexpensive products. Foreign, inexpensive brands have penetrated the market for zirconia CAD/CAM blocks and discs in the United States and Europe, driving the overall ASP downwards. Generic brands produced in the U.S. have captured a notable portion of the market through promotion strategies, facilitating further ASP declines. Inexpensive products have also facilitated ASP cuts and competitive pricing within the rapid prototyping system market.

The digital dentistry market will be driven by the continuing transition from traditional dental prosthetics to those produced through CAD/CAM technology. As prices have declined, the benefits of using CAD/CAM technology have become increasingly clear. With higher levels of efficiency and improved affordability, dentists are more inclined to invest in CAD/CAM systems and, subsequently, the necessary materials. Patients and clinicians are also becoming more educated about the benefits of CAD/CAM, further stimulating market growth.

An ongoing trend within the digital dentistry market is the growth of rapid prototyping systems, also known as 3D printing, which is occurring at the expense of other segments within the market. When rapid prototyping systems initially emerged in the dental industry, they experienced significant growth. However, as with most new technologies, growth has slowed and is expected to remain flat over the next few years as new materials and systems await the appropriate FDA and American Dental Association (ADA) approvals. As 3D printers become readily available on the market, their corresponding share is expected to grow towards the end of the forecast period. Growth of rapid prototyping systems will subsequently limit growth of the other digital dentistry markets as more users shift towards the 3D environment.

Digital Dentistry Market Share Insights

Through more than 130 players in this space, the market is highly fragmented. However, despite this, Dentsply Sirona commands more than one-third of the market share in the United States, and nearing one quarter of the market share in Europe.

Dentsply Sirona was involved with both the CAD/CAM system and CAD/CAM material markets. The company’s involvement with the chairside CAD/CAM system market enabled it to rank as the leading competitor in the total CAD/CAM system market. Nonetheless, Dentsply Sirona was involved in all of the CAD/CAM milling system, standalone CAD/CAM scanner, chairside CAD/CAM system and intraoral scanner markets. Its dominance in the large chairside system segment was achieved through sales of its CEREC® chairside CAD/CAM system. As this report only considers closed systems, Dentsply Sirona and E4D were the only two competitors involved in the chairside CAD/CAM system market.

The second leading competitor in Europe is Ivoclar Vivadent, however, they trail behind Sagemax and Glidewell Laboratories in the United States. Ivoclar’s position is mostly due to their leading share of the CAD/CAM materials market in Europe, in addition to leading the CAD/CAM block market. The company offers its IPS e.max® line of blocks made of lithium disilicate, glass-ceramics and zirconia ceramics. The proprietary, lithium disilicate material was only offered in block format and is a type of glass-ceramic that had great translucency and strength. Ivoclar Vivadent also offered their Telio® line of PMMA blocks for temporary solutions. Ivoclar Vivadent’s share in the disc market came from their purchase of Wieland Dental in late 2012. This brought a variety of disc options under the Zenotec® and Zenostar® names, including zirconia, wax, acrylic, chromium cobalt and titanium.
