The dental CAD/CAM market is expected to grow from US$ 1,829.77 million in 2021 to US$ 3,447.12 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 9.5% from 2021 to 2028.  

Dental Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing or CAD-CAM is the automation technology that helps in tooth restoration. CAD/CAM complements previous technologies used for these dental solutions by increasing the speed of design and manufacture and increasing the suitability and simplicity of the invention, construction, and placement processes. This technology has enabled restorations that would otherwise not have been feasible. Other goals are to reduce unit costs and make tooth repairs affordable. The rise in the incidence of tooth loss, growth in the edentulous population, advantages of dental CAD/CAM-based restorations over dental laboratory restorations, technological advances in dental CAD/CAM systems, growth in dental service organizations, and increasing demand for advanced dental solutions are expected to drive the dental CAD/CAM market growth.

Market Insights
Increasing Oral Diseases and Geriatric Population Drives the Dental CAD/CAM Market Growth

The increasing number of dental diseases is one of the main factors contributing to the dental industry growth. According to the National Center for Health Statistics (US), in April 2021, ~13.2% of children (5–19 years) and ~25.9% of adults (20–44 years) had untreated dental caries in North America. Additionally, the National Center for Health Statistics reported that 64.9% of US adults aged 19 and above; and 85.9% of children aged 2–17 years visited the dentist at least once in 2019; in March 2020, ~3.5 billion people suffered from dental conditions, such as untreated tooth decay (dental caries). In addition, the WHO found that oral cancer is among the top three most commonly detected cancers in Asia-Pacific countries. According to the United Nations World Aging Population, ~703 million people globally aged 65 or above in 2019, and the number is expected to double to 1.5 billion in 2050. Oral health is directly linked to aging due to biological, behavioral, and socioeconomic factors, thus leading to deterioration in oral health among the geriatric population. As the geriatric population increases globally, the demand for dental procedures will grow and fuel the dental CAD/CAM market growth.

Rising Adoption of Chair-Side CAD/CAM Systems Contributes Significantly to Market Growth

In dentistry, computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technologies have expanded rapidly. The product preparation is scanned with the chairside technique, and the restoration is then fabricated in the milling device (CEREC 3, Sirona, E4D, D4D TECH). Chairside CAD/CAM systems have been trending in the market for several years due to the proven effectiveness and accuracy of restoration design using these systems. Dentists consider dental chair CAD/CAM systems to save time, increase patient visits, and improve income. These systems allow dentists to control the entire process, starting with the digital impression of prepared teeth to design and fabrication of the dental restorations. These systems offer unique advantages, such as better patient comfort, shorter procedure times, and improved quality. They also provide dentists a competitive edge by helping them deliver digital services faster. Therefore, many dentists are adopting chair-side CAD/CAM systems, thus driving the dental CAD/CAM market growth.

Product launches, and mergers and acquisitions are the highly adopted strategies by the players operating in the global dental CAD/CAM market. A few of the recent key product developments are listed below:

  • In May 2021, CIMsystem announced the launching of a new product MillBox. This new product possesses an interface developed explicitly for immediate use, with exciting new features, allowing dentists to work faster.
  • In December 2021, Envista Holdings Corporation announced the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for the Nobel Biocare N1 implant system. The new product approval boasts a biologically driven design of components and forward-thinking treatment protocols, representing a significant step toward patient-centric implant solutions.
  • In June 2020, Zimmer Biomet and Zfx (offer quality CAD/CAM restorative components for the industry's most popular dental implant connection) announced the launch of GenTek, a new restorative digital product line for the Zimmer Biomet dental implant system. The newly launched product brings restorative solutions based on patient's needs by strengthening the integrity of clinically proven implant connection design.

The COVID-19 pandemic substantially impacted dental diagnostics in several regions due to the closure of practices. The COVID-19 pandemic radically changed clinical and surgical routines, profoundly affecting many healthcare and surgical practices, such as limited workforce, prioritization of procedures, and intraoperative transmission. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality report, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2019 forced ~198,000 active dentists and dental specialists to close their practices in the US. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic witnessed delayed dental care among patients owing to stringent closure of dental offices, reluctance to seek care during the pandemic, loss of employer-sponsored dental insurance coverage, and other factors. Pre-pandemic dental CAD/CAM technology was gaining high traction as routine dental visits offer lucrative opportunities by providing preventive oral healthcare and detecting oral manifestations of systemic disease that have been enormously missed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has also impacted the dental 3D printing market. However, 3D printer sales are increasing rapidly after the initial slowdown. In addition, digital technologies, such as 3D printers and intraoral scanners, offer better contamination risk control, and this has already started to increase sales. As improvements in technology provide reliability, the demand for digital technology in dentistry will likely be higher. Additionally, digital technologies offer better security and infection control, which is expected to drive their adoption in the future.
