The global Dental Caries Detectors Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 323.44 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.1% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Dental caries detectors are used to detect the presence of tooth decay in its early stage. They help dentists to diagnose cavities accurately and allow for non-invasive treatment planning to arrest cavities and enhance oral health.
Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the dental caries detectors market is the growing demand for non-invasive and radiation-free caries detection devices. Conventional caries detection methods such as dental X-rays expose patients to radiation. However, new laser fluorescence and electric conductivity-based caries detection devices do not use ionizing radiation and help detect caries in early stages non-invasively. Their higher adoption is expected to support the growth of the dental caries detectors market during the forecast period.
Strength: Dental caries detectors provide early and accurate detection of dental caries through X-ray imaging and laser fluorescence. This helps dentists implement preventive treatment.
Weakness: Dental caries detectors involve significant costs which may not be feasible for all dental practices and patients. Lack of awareness about these devices can also hamper their adoption.
Opportunity: Rising geriatric population and increasing expenditure on dental care present an opportunity for growth. Growing dental tourism in developing nations further expands the market.
Threats: Alternate diagnostic methods like visual oral examination pose competition. Economic slowdowns can negatively impact the market.
The Global Dental Caries Detectors Market Size is expected to witness high growth, exhibiting CAGR of 8.1% over the forecast period, due to increasing prevalence of dental caries worldwide. As per FDI World Dental Federation, dental caries remains the most prevalent oral disease globally, affecting approximately 2.3 billion people.
Regional analysis: North America dominates the market currently due to high awareness levels and availability of advanced dental practices. Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest pace owing to rapidly developing economies, increasing healthcare expenditures and growing medical tourism. Countries like China, India and Japan are likely to offer lucrative opportunities.
Key players operating in the dental caries detectors market are DEXIS (KaVo Kerr), Sirona Dental Systems (now part of Dentsply Sirona), Danaher Corporation, ACTEON Group, Air Techniques, Inc., FONA Dental, s.r.o., LED Dental (LED Medical Diagnostics Inc.), Midmark Corporation, Quantum Dental Technologies Inc., DÜRR DENTAL SE.
