Market Insights

Rising Burden of Dental Diseases and Increasing Geriatric Population Drives Market Growth

Oral diseases, including dental diseases, are highly preventable. However, these diseases can be a major health burden for many countries and affect people throughout their lifetime. A few common dental problems include dental caries (tooth decay), periodontal diseases, and tooth loss. The rising incidence of dental diseases is boosting the demand for teeth replacement, dental crowns, copings, and dental bridges. According to the WHO Global Oral Health Status Report (2022), oral diseases affect approximately 3 out of 4 people globally, out of which ~3.5 billion people live in middle-income countries. Further, ~2 billion people globally suffer from caries of permanent teeth, and 514 million children suffer from primary teeth caries. Furthermore, the prevalence of major oral diseases continues to increase globally with growing urbanization and changing lifestyles.

Moreover, according to WHO, losing teeth can be psychologically traumatic, socially damaging, and functionally limiting. It can be caused due to various oral diseases such as dental caries, severe periodontal disease, and trauma. As per the same source, the estimated global average prevalence of complete tooth loss is ~7% among people aged 20 years or older while for people aged 60 years or older, the global prevalence of complete tooth loss is ~23%. Moreover, according to data from United Nations World Population Prospects: the 2019 Revision, by 2050, 1 in every 6 people in the world will be over age 65, i.e., 16%, up from 9% in 2019. Thus, the increasing global geriatric population and rising burden of dental diseases are boosting the demand for teeth replacement and other restoration procedures, which is fueling the dental milling machines market growth.

Product Type-Based Insights

Based on product type, the dental milling machines market is bifurcated into in-lab milling machines and in-office milling machines. In 2021, the in-lab milling machines segment held a larger share of the dental milling machines market. However, the in-office milling machines segment is anticipated to register a higher CAGR during the forecast period. The dental laboratory milling units are used for the fabrication of complete or partial dental restorations. The in-lab dental mills are used to cut dental crowns, copings, frameworks, bridges, and abutments made of materials such as zirconia, resins, ceramics, and wax. The in-lab dental milling machines are designed to meet the requirements of dental laboratories through cost-effective production. Most of the in-lab milling machines are featured with multiple processed disk heights as well as working angles that offer flexibility in the restorations supported by dental milling machines. A few of the companies providing in-lab milling machines include Dentsply Sirona, CadBlu Inc., AmannGirrbach GmbH, Ivoclar Vivadent Inc., and Jensen Dental.

Technology-Based Insights

Based on technology, the dental milling machines market is bifurcated into CAD or CAM milling and copying milling machines. The CAD or CAM milling segment held the largest share of the market in 2021, and it is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. In the dental industry, CAD/CAM includes the use of software for designing and milling dental prosthetics. Computer-aided designing (CAD) involves the digital scanning of prosthetics, and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) sends final models to output devices and manufacture them with the help of 3D printing or milling machines. CAD/CAM is becoming a promising technology in the field of dentistry as it enables the delivery of well-fitted aesthetic and durable prostheses for patients. Dentistry uses additive and subtractive processes to produce physical instances from 3D models. The CAD/CAM milling machines are likely to witness significant growth in the coming years as the technique has helped to improve the quality of prostheses and standardize the production process in the dentistry.

Application-Based Insights

Based on application, the dental milling machines market is segmented into crowns, dentures, bridges, veneers, and inlays or onlays. In 2021, the bridges segment held the largest share of the market and is anticipated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Dental bridges are custom-made teeth that help to fill the space of one or more missing teeth. These are fixed implants or prosthetic devices that are cemented onto the existing implants or teeth by a certified dental professional. Apart from strengthening a damaged tooth, bridges are helpful as they improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, alignment, and dental occlusion (bite). There are four major types of dental bridges, namely traditional dental bridges, cantilever bridges, Maryland bridges, and implant supported bridges. Traditional dental bridges are among the most used and popular types of dental bridges. Implant supported bridges are supported by dental milling machines instead of being supported by crowns or frameworks. The high demand for bridges in dental milling machines acts as a standalone factor responsible for the growth of the dental bridges segment in the dental milling machines market

End User-Based Insights

Based on end user, the dental milling machines market is segmented into dental laboratories, dental clinics, and research and academic institutes. In 2021, the dental laboratories segment held the largest share of the market. Also, the same segment is expected to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period. Dental Laboratories refer to commercial labs and operating workrooms that engage in various dental-related activities and procedures. These laboratories consist of full-service dental lab services that fabricate a wide variety of implants, including crowns, bridges, flexible and cast dentures, aligners, and other products. Dental laboratories are gaining popularity as these labs offer quick and accurate results, such as a same-day turnaround in many situations. The labs use advanced technologies such as 3D printing for the preparation of dental products. This helps in accurate designing as per the patient's requirements.
