Report Overview

The global dental equipment market size was valued at USD 10.6 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.2% from 2023 to 2030. Dental equipment are tools used to examine, manipulate, treat, and restore any oral ailments. Factors, such as the increasing geriatric population suffering from oral diseases, evolving medical tourism pertaining to dental treatment, and the launch of multiple government initiatives for public oral health care, are expected to drive the industry. Furthermore, the introduction of advanced and efficient dental products by major companies is also creating a boost for the market.

Companies like DENTSPLY Sirona, Planmeca Oy, and Danaher Corp., are introducing advanced computer-aided imaging technology that will allow professionals to prepare a precise course of dental treatment. However, the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic has hugely affected the overall dental and oral hygiene industry. Routine dental care was largely unavailable during the pandemic, as many dental practices were forced to close as they were deemed elective procedures. The continuous operation and long-term survival of many dental practices are also threatened by the economic and social challenges arising due to care restrictions, practice closures, and shortages of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), as well as the need of investing in new types of PPE and technology.

While many practices and clinics worldwide re-opened in 2021, the market recovered soon, as there are numerous concerns about the availability of dental services and ensuring the safety of dentists and dental teams. A review article published by The Journal of Contemporary Dental Practice stated that COVID-19 is expected to be a watershed moment in the field of dentistry. While the industry expected to see positive changes in the safe delivery of dental care, an increase in the cost of availing care is imminent. According to the FDI World Dental Federation, oral diseases impact 3.9 billion people worldwide, with untreated tooth decay (dental caries) impacting more than half of the global population (44%), making it the most prevalent of all the 291 conditions included in the Global Burden of Disease Study.

The most frequently carried out dental procedures during these visits include dental fillings, bonding, root canals, dental crowns, dental bridges, periodontal treatments, and oral & maxillofacial procedures. This showcases the existing potential dental procedures around the world. Dental disorders like periodontal disease, oral cancers, and environmental injuries resulting in oro-dental trauma are expected to further assist the overall market growth.  

1.1 COVID-19 impact: A 32% decline in demand was observed

Pandemic Impact

Post COVID Outlook

The hospitals delayed elective procedures in order to free up beds in the hospitals and Original Equipment Manufacturing companies is faced supply chain disruption leading to financial strain

The dental equipment market is expected to recover by 2021 as many dental practices in the U.S. and Europe have resumed with Covid-19 guidelines

As stated by Dental Tribunal, the spread of the virus has resulted in a slowdown in dental consumables & equipment segments, and the recovery of sales is affected

The American Dental Association predicts that the spending on dental care will increase significantly post-pandemic due to resuming of dental practices and patient volume recovering faster than anticipated

Companies developing dental equipment like DENTSPLY Sirona reported a loss in their sales and revenue for the year 2020

The ADA also predicts that dental expenditures will grow and recover either fully to pre-pandemic projected levels or 80 percent of pre-pandemic levels and that this will happen either by October 2020 or January 2021


Furthermore, high consumption of tobacco & alcohol, unhealthy diet, and high intake of sugar are the leading causes of dental carries, which is the most common type of chronic disease experienced globally. The rising geriatric population and their demand for dental services have also seen a surge. According to the World Population Prospects, by 2050, 1 in 6 people in the world will be over the age of 65 globally, up from 1 in 11 in 2019, providing a population pool of about 1.5 billion people above the age of 65 years by 2050.

Product Insights

The dental system and parts segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 39.1% in 2022 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. The global industry is segmented into dental radiology equipment, dental lasers, dental systems & parts, laboratory machines, and hygiene maintenance devices. The dental systems & parts segment is sub-segmented into instrument delivery systems, vacuums & compressors, cone beam CT systems, cast machines, furnaces and ovens, electrosurgical equipment, other system and parts, CAD/CAM. These devices are quintessential tools required to carry out any dental procedures.

The performance and functionality of these systems and parts are key factors for a successful dental treatment. The major driver for this segment is the technological advancements and rigorous R&D activities undertaken by key players to provide practitioner-friendly and highly efficient equipment to provide smooth procedures. The dental lasers segment is estimated to register the highest CAGR over the forecast period due to the fact that it is being rapidly used in surgical and teeth whitening procedures.

Dental lasers are also used for reshaping gum tissues and removing inflamed tissues. The other benefit of using dental lasers is controlled blood loss during the procedures, thus lessening the need for sutures. The dental laser segment is further segmented into diode lasers, carbon dioxide lasers, and yttrium aluminum garnet lasers. Favorable technological adoption, satisfactory reimbursement scenario, increasing geriatric population, and growing awareness about oral care are the key factors assisting the market growth.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the global industry in 2022 with a market share of more than 38.35% and is expected to showcase a significant CAGR over the forecast period. This is attributed to the rising geriatric population, strong medical infrastructure, well-established reimbursement policies, the existence of key players, and advancement in preventive and restorative dental treatments. Moreover, according to the American Dental Association, 85% of individuals in the United States truly value dental health and consider oral health an essential aspect of overall care. The combination of all these factors will make North America the most promising regional market over the forecast period.

Dental Equipment Market Trends by Region

The APAC region is expected to witness the highest CAGR over the forecast period. China, Japan, and India are emerging economies with well-developed healthcare infrastructure & facilities and are now more focused on leading on the basis of R&D activities. They have suitable infrastructure and fundings for the same. A total of 43.6% of the spending is expected to emanate from Asia with countries like China, Japan, and India being the topmost to spend on R&D activities.

Attributes like favorable government policies, the rising geriatric population, the presence of key players, and the rise in the demand for dental procedures are paving way for the market in the Asia Pacific region. Moreover, medical tourism in the region is rapidly increasing due to shorter patient waiting times, low-cost treatment, availability of a large pool of skilled dental practitioners & high-end technology, and the presence of tourist destinations & quality accommodations. These aforementioned factors will assist in the market growth in the region.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The global industry is highly competitive. One of the key factors driving competitiveness among industry players is the rapid adoption of advanced technology like computer-aided scanners for precise imaging and diagnosis of dental disorders. Moreover, a prominent number of companies are opting for geographical expansions, strategic collaborations, and partnerships through mergers & acquisitions in emerging and economically favorable regions.
