Dental Lasers to Play Pivotal Role in Enabling Global Dental Equipment Market
Dental Lasers to Play Pivotal Role in Enabling
Global Dental Equipment Market -
Transparency Market Research
The global dental equipment market over the next three years, says Transparency Market Research (TMR) in
its latest report. The report further states that the market will grow also as a result of dentistry playing a
growing role in aesthetics.
At the same time, the report finds that certain factors will slow down the growth of the global dental
equipment market. These include: The use of refurbished dental equipment in order to curtail costs, the
relatively high price point of advanced dental equipment, the levying of taxes on certain classes of dental
equipment, and a growing awareness about the use of fluoridation to prevent dental decay.
The dental equipment market has been studied on the basis of product type, and covers the following
equipment: Dental radiology equipment, systems and parts, dental lasers, hygiene maintenance devices,
laboratory machines, and other equipment. The report identifies the systems and parts segment as being the
most dominant in 2011 thanks largely to the expansive application range enjoyed by these products. Dental
radiology equipment was the second-largest segment in 2011 in the global dental equipment market by
Interestingly, while dental lasers represented the smallest segment within the global dental equipment market
by product type in 2011, this segment is growing very rapidly. TMR analysts state that the increasing use of
dental lasers in minimally invasive surgical procedures will prove vital in helping this segment report the
fastest growth rate in the global dental equipment market.
On the basis of geography, the report segments the global dental equipment market into: North
America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. The findings of TMR’s study show that the
share of North America in the global dental equipment market was the highest. Trailing North
America was Europe with a market share of over 35% as of 2011. Asia Pacific will report slow
growth over the report’s forecast period even as North America continues to lead at the global
The North America dental equipment market will benefit from factors such as the high
prevalence of dental caries among people here. In 2011, in North America, the decayed,
missing, filled teeth (DMFT) count was estimated at 2.35 among children aged 12 years, says
a WHO report. Besides this, consumers in North America spend substantial amounts of
money on cosmetic dental procedures. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, for
instance, states that people in the U.S. alone spend approximately US$2.75 bn annually on
cosmetic dental procedures.
