Dental Microscope Market Size & Trends

The global dental microscope market size was estimated at USD 241.8 million in 2023 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.88% from 2024 to 2030. The growth of the market can be attributed to rising demand for dental procedures, advancements in technology, increasing focus on precision and minimally invasive dentistry, and the growing prevalence of oral diseases worldwide. Apart from all these, dental tourism has also impacted the growth of the dental microscope industry positively. Dental microscopes are essential for diagnosis and treatment in various dentistry procedures, enabling better visualization and accuracy.

U.S. Dental Microscope Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The adoption of accessible and user-friendly microscopes is driven by ongoing technological advancements. With features such as LED lighting, integrated high-quality optics, and ergonomic designs, microscopes have become more attractive to dental professionals. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality technologies are being used to enhance operating microscopes. These technologies provide dentists with real-time guidance and feedback, improving their efficiency and accuracy.

Dental tourism has a positive impact on the market as it allows patients to access high-quality dental care. Patients who travel for dental care always look for providers that use the latest technologies and equipment. A survey published by the British Dental Association in July 2022 showed that 95% of dentists have examined patients who have traveled abroad for dental treatment. The top five countries for dental tourism are Mexico, Thailand, India, Turkey, and Hungary. Hungary serves European patients, while India treats Asian and some U.S. patients.

COVID-19 had a negative impact on the market as many manufacturers faced disruptions in their production processes and supply chains due to lockdowns and restrictions. These temporary slowdowns and closures affected the availability of microscopes, which are essential tools for many dentistry procedures. To reduce the risk of virus transmission, many non-essential dentistry procedures were postponed or canceled during the early stages of the pandemic. This directly affected the demand for dental microscopes. According to Dentistry Media UK , over 10 million dental appointments were delayed in 2020 due to the pandemic. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, U.S., reports that around 198,000 active dentists and dentistry specialists were shut down in the country due to the pandemic.

Product Insights

Based on products, the market is segmented into surgical and operating microscopes. The surgical microscopes segment dominated the market with the largest share of 68.5% in 2023 and is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. The increasing prevalence of oral diseases, such as tooth decay and gum disease, is rising globally. This is due to poor diet, poor oral hygiene, and aging. Surgical microscopes help dentists to diagnose and treat oral diseases more effectively. The prevalence of dental disorders worldwide is increasing, driving growth in the surgical microscopes segment.

In addition, many providers are taking the initiative to launch surgical microscopes and have received approvals and certificates from the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA). This is expected to boost the growth of the segment. For instance, in March 2021, Zumax Medical Co., Ltd. obtained CFDA's domestic registration certificate for their dental microscope, OMS 3200. This microscope is equipped with high-quality optics and image-capturing capabilities and features LED illumination.

The operating microscope segment is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period. Dental implants are popular tooth replacement options for patients with missing teeth. Operating microscopes help dentists place implants more precisely and accurately, which can improve the success rate of the surgery and the long-term durability of the implants, and it is expected to boost the market. In dental implants, the younger the patient, the higher the success rate of implants. Patients under the age of 40 years have an approximately 95% success rate, and patients over the age of 40 years have a success rate of about 85%.

Type Insights

Based on type, the market is segmented into portable and fixed microscopes. The portable segment dominated the market with the largest share of 68.3% in 2023. The prevalence of oral diseases is rising globally, and the adoption of mobile dentistry is increasing. Mobile dentistry is becoming popular, allowing dentists to provide care to patients at convenient locations. Portable dental microscopes are essential as they allow dentists to perform a wide range of procedures without relying on a traditional clinic setting.

The fixed segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 12.4% during the forecast period. The growing demand for fixed microscopes is driven by their capacity to deliver enhanced visualization, efficiency, stability, and specialization for dentistry procedures. These microscopes are essential in modern dentistry practices, contributing to improved patient care, accurate diagnoses, and successful treatment outcomes. Fixed microscopes are essential for diagnosing and treating endodontic conditions, cracked teeth, oral lesions, and pathologies. According to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, 9 out of 10 people have at least one impacted wisdom tooth.

End-use Insights

Based on end-use, the market is segmented into hospitals, clinics, and others. The hospital segment dominated the market with the largest share of 52.8% in 2023. This can be attributed to the growing number of complex oral surgeries. Many hospitals have specialized dentistry departments focusing on advanced dental procedures, such as oral and maxillofacial surgery, implantology, and pediatric dentistry. These departments require advanced equipment, such as dental microscopes, for enhanced visualization and precision.

Global Dental Microscope Market share and size, 2023

The clinics segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 12.2% over the forecast period. Clinics play a crucial role in the market, catering to the needs of dental professionals and patients in various dental care settings. Dental clinics, such as oral surgery centers, general dental practices, endodontic clinics, periodontal clinics, and orthodontic practices, are adopting dental microscopes to improve the quality of care and provide more accurate diagnoses and treatments. Many dentistry service providers are expanding their business to gain a competitive edge in the market. In April 2022, Love Teeth Dental Surrey, UK, opened a new aesthetics and dentistry clinic in Sutton, London, for cosmetic and restorative dental treatments.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market with the largest share of 35.5% in 2023. Dental practices and clinics in the region are well-equipped with the latest medical technologies. The increasing number of dentists positively impacts the dental microscope industry by expanding the user base, increasing awareness, and driving demand for advanced technology. According to the American Dental Association, in the U.S., there were 200,590 active dentists in 2018, and in 2022, the number reached 203,567.

Dental Microscope Market Trends by Region, 2024 - 2030

Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period due to the growing tooth decay and gum disease cases in the region. According to the WHO, the burden of oral diseases in the region is increasing. In 2019, over 900 million severe periodontal diseases, dental caries, and edentulism were untreated in Southeast Asia. The increasing investment by government and private players in the dental industry is expected to support market growth. In May 2022, Toothsi, a provider of invisible and 3D-printed aligner technology, raised USD 40 million in funding from Eight Roads Ventures to expand its geographical presence in the Asia Pacific region.
