CAD/CAM technologies market expected to exceed $300 million by 2020
According to a new report by iData Research, US Markets for Dental Prosthetics and CAD/CAM Devices 2014, the U.S. dental prosthetics market, including crowns/bridges, inlays/onlays, veneers and dentures is expected to reach 11.8 billion by 2020. The biggest competitors fueling this market are Glidewell Laboratories, National Dentex Corporation, Dental Services Group, MicroDental Laboratories and Novadent.
This growth is led by the successful adoption of CAD/CAM systems and standalone desktop scanners, which is projected to exceed $300 million by 2020, with Sirona and E4D technologies leading the market. Dentists and technicians have been opting for CAD/CAM technology due to their real-time capabilities that will reduce the margin of error when creating dental impressions. As opposed to the traditional putty and tray method that is made with materials that will often shift after the impression is taken.
Intra-oral digital impression-taking devices are a rapidly growing new market. This technology allows dentists to directly scan a patient’s mouth using a handheld digital scanning device and transmit that data electronically to the laboratory.
“The capability of intra-oral digital impression-taking devices to produce a three dimensional model instantly, enables dentists to make any adjustments in real-time, leading to more accurate restorations”, says Dr. Zamanian, President of iData Research. “The use of these devices will expedite the restoration processes, increasing the efficiency of both dentists and technicians.”
