The global CAD CAM dental milling machine market size was valued at USD 1.5 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.6% during the forecast period. The rising number of dental diseases and increasing innovations in technologies in dentistry are driving the growth of the market.
According to the Federal Interagency Forum, the number of individuals aged 65 years & above is estimated to reach nearly 72 million by 2030, almost double the number in 2000. The geriatric population is prone to dental disorders due to factors such as the use of various medications and drug interactions, along with their inability to maintain good oral hygiene due to old age.
Nearly 30% of patients aged 65 years & above have xerostomia, while 10% of patients aged 75 to 84 years suffer from secondary coronal caries. Thus, increasing geriatric population is expected to fuel growth during the forecast period.
CAD-CAM dental milling is highly beneficial for restorative dentistry as the restorations manufactured using CAD/CAM systems are more esthetically appealing, marginally adaptive, & durable and can be fabricated faster compared with traditional restorations. Besides, technology aids in reducing outsourcing costs. Thus, the abovementioned factors are likely to aid growth during the forecast period.
Moreover, technological advancements in CAD/CAM technology are expected to fuel market growth. Nearly 30% of the CAD developers are actively involved in the development of a platform that would provide access to data on mobile platforms, thereby enabling mobility and remote access to CAD. Also, the number of developers is estimated to increase by ~10% annually, thereby aiding growth.
By axis type, the market has been segmented into 4-axis machines and 5-axis machines. The 4-axis machines segment held a larger share of the CAD-CAM dental milling machine market in 2018 and is expected to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period.
Most restorations such as bridges, inlays/Onlays, copings, and crowns can be milled using 4-axis machines. These mills are also useful when cut-outs and holes are required to be made around a cylinder or on the side of a piece. Such wide applications are expected to boost the demand for 4-axis machines.
The 4-axis mills are also cost-effective compared with the 5-axis machines. In line with this, a 4-axis mill by VHF, Inc. costs nearly USD 30,000, while a 5-axis mill costs about USD 50,000. Thus, the demand for 4-axis machines among dental laboratories & clinics, especially the ones with fewer complex restoration cases, is increasing.
By size, the market has been segmented into the tabletop, benchtop, and standalone milling machines. The benchtop segment held the largest share in 2018, and the market for these milling machines is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. Benchtop milling machines are more robust than tabletop milling machines and are lesser expensive than standalone mills. Moreover, in certain configurations, most benchtop mills can efficiently mill metal & glass-ceramics. These mills move milling spindles with the help of heavy-duty ball screws and, thus, are more robust compared with tabletop mills. These factors are expected to boost the demand for benchtop mills, thereby driving the market.
A tabletop mill is usually small in size and offers better mobility than other milling machines. Tabletop mills make use of belt-drives for moving stock or milling spindle. Most of these mills comprise fixed tooling, which requires human intervention during milling processes. Moreover, tabletop mills are portable and, thus, are low cost.
Geographically, the market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. Europe held the largest share in 2018, and a similar trend is expected during the forecast period, owing to the presence of a large number of players and the availability of high-quality products in the region.
The increasing number of elderly people suffering from dental disorders is also expected to fuel growth in Europe. For instance, nearly 30% of Europeans aged between 65 and 74 years have no teeth due to either severe periodontal disease or dental caries.
The market in the Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period owing to the increasing spending power, rising geriatric population, and growing awareness among end-users about technologically advanced equipment. Also, increasing availability & accessibility of dental milling machines is driving growth in this region.
Some of the key players are Amann Girrbach, Dentsply Sirona, Planmeca OY, Ivoclar Vivadent, 3M Company, Straumann, Zimmer, Dentium, Roland DGA Corporation, and DATRON. These players focus on growth strategies, such as partnerships, mergers & acquisitions, product launches & development, innovations, and awareness campaigns, among others, to expand their market presence and provide end-users with optimal milling solutions.
In the 15th Annual Dental Lab CAD/CAM Expo, VHF, Inc. introduced its K5+ dental milling machine, which is equipped with several user-friendly features. Using DirectDiscTechnology, which enables blank clamping without tools, the machine can load materials rapidly & easily. An integrated ionizer neutralizes the static charge, and improved air circulation in the work area significantly reduces the time taken for cleaning.
