Industry Insights

The global dental 3D printing market size was valued at USD 1.2 billion in 2017. It is expected to register a CAGR of 29.3% during the forecast period. Rising global geriatric population and mounting cases of dental conditions are anticipated to drive the market. Apart from this, surging demand for customized dental 3D printers is likely to stimulate the growth of the market over the forecast period.

Moreover, rising R&D expenses by key players, growing consumer awareness, and rapid technological advancements are estimated to boost the sales of dental 3D printers, thereby escalating the growth of the market over the forecast period. Increasing incidence of edentulism is also poised to augment the market.

U.S. dental 3D printing market

According to FDI’s Oral Health Atlas estimates, in 2015, around 3.05 billion people worldwide are affected by untreated decay of primary and permanent teeth. Furthermore, 85.0% to 90.0% of tooth decay requires endodontic procedures, requiring dental surgery to replace natural teeth with false teeth. Moreover, increasing demand for personalized and customized dental 3D printers are further supporting market growth.

Rising disposable income is leading to greater expenditure on oral health, thereby bolstering utilization of digital dentistry. Besides this, growing consumption of alcohol and tobacco and other unhealthy shifts in lifestyles are causing increased cases of dental conditions, including oral cancer, is projected to stoke the growth of the market.

Application Insights

On the basis of application, the market can be segmented into orthodontics, prosthodontics, and implantology. The orthodontics segment dominated the market in 2017 and is expected to witness a phenomenal CAGR over the forecast period. The growth of the segment can be attributed to increasing number of patients with misalignment and gaps in the teeth. Such factors are prompting market players to focus on development of products associated with orthodontics.

The prosthodontics segment is anticipated to expand at a CAGR slightly higher than that of orthodontics during the forecast period. Growing cases of tooth decay and edentulism are contributing to the growth of the segment.

End Use Insights

On the basis of end use, the segments analyzed in the report are dental clinics, dental laboratories, and academics & research institutes. The laboratories segment was the dominant segment in terms of revenue in 2017. The segment is estimated to exhibit the highest CAGR over the forecast period. Heightened adoption of advanced technologies in laboratories is supplementing the growth of the segment.

Moreover, growing number of rapid dental laboratories, rising demand for customized/fabricated dental framing solutions required for various applications, and increasing outsourcing of several manufacturing functions to dental laboratories are fueling the demand for dental 3D printing technologies. 

Academic and research institutes are collaborating with private and government-funded institutions and associations for R&D process. For instance, University of Twente, Eindhoven University of Technology, and Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter collaborated to form Inkjet Printing program in 2016 to support challenges in the 3D printing industry. Such supportive initiatives in R&D are poised to lead to manifold growth of the segment over the forecast period.

Technology Insights

On the basis of technology, the dental 3D printing market can be segmented into VAT polymerization, PolyJet technology, fused deposition modeling, selective laser sintering, and others (material jetting, binder jetting, and electron beam melting). In 2017, the selective laser sintering dominated the market and held over 38.0% of the market.

Global dental 3D printing market

The segment is likely to maintain its position throughout the forecast period, owing to its advantages over other technologies such as biocompatibility, good chemical resistance, and its excellent surface finishing. However, polyJet technology is poised to post the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to rising investments in R&D related to the technology.

Regional Insights

North America commanded more than one third of market revenue in 2017. The region is anticipated to retain its position through 2025. Some of the primary factors supporting the dominance of the region in the global arena are widening base of edentulous population, high purchasing power of the populace, strong government support for quality healthcare, and availability of suitable reimbursement policies in the U.S and Canada.

For instance, in the U.S, Patient Protection and Affordable Act (PPACA), also known as Obamacare, provides affordable and quality health insurance schemes to its citizens. Moreover, favorable government initiatives to support the R&D pertaining to healthcare are also stirring up the adoption of dental 3D printing technologies.

Asia Pacific is estimated to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period. The growth of the regional market can be attributed to expanding patient pool undergoing tooth replacement surgeries, rising commercial activities by key industry players, and improving dental healthcare infrastructure in the region.

Large geriatric population, growing per capita income, flourishing dental tourism, and favorable government policies are also playing a pivotal role in triggering the growth of the regional market. China and India are projected to spearhead the growth in Asia Pacific and market players are looking forward to invest in these countries.

Dental 3D Printing Market Share Insights

Some of the key companies present in the industry are 3D Systems; Stratasys; SLM Solutions; EnvisionTEC; Straumann AG Group; Roland DG Corporation; Prodways Group; Renishaw Inc.; FormLabs Inc.; EOS Germany; Dental Wings; Planmeca; Rapid Shape; DWS Italy; Ultimaker; Carbon; and Asiga Inc. These players focus on growth strategies such as launch of new products and mergers & acquisitions.
