The flat panel detector based x-ray for cone beam computed tomography market size was valued at USD 2.3 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.3% from 2022 to 2030. Increased adoption of low radiation X-ray imaging systems is one of the significant factors fueling the market growth. Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) has become a standard of care in various dental applications owing to its advantages over the other radiographic imaging modalities. These advantages include limited exposure to radiation, improved image accuracy, reduced image artifacts, rapid scanning, and the ability to maintain data records.
Developments in technology have enabled the integration of CBCT and software for efficient diagnosis and treatment of various dental indications. CBCT has increased the success rate of microsurgical and nonsurgical endodontic treatments owing to its high-quality three-dimensional imaging. Furthermore, most CBCT systems incorporate panoramic and cephalometric modalities in addition to 3D imaging. Many professionals find it convenient to use the 2D CBCT-generated reconstruction of cephalometric images.
The market is moderately competitive due to few players capturing a larger market share and a limited number of products. VATECH and Asahi Roentgen are the companies that manufacture the highest variants of CBCT devices. The innovators and early adopters in this market have their bases in Japan, Korea, Finland, the U.S., France, and Italy. However, the adoption of CBCT technology is high in North America and European countries.
The American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology, the American Association of Endodontists, and the American Dental Association Council on Scientific Affairs have developed guidelines specifically related to the use of CBCT in medical and dental practice in the U.S. The European Academy of Dental and Maxillofacial Radiology has created a set of evidence-based guidelines for the use of CBCT for dental and maxillofacial applications. The awareness related to the use of CBCT is very less in most countries. However, the inclusion of CBCT in academics significantly contributes to the rapidly increasing awareness among the students and practitioners.
The Covid 19 pandemic led to a dramatic decline since its outbreak in the year 2020. Postponing of elective surgeries, halt in logistics and sales, national lockdowns, the closure of manufacturing units, and financial instability among end-users led to the reduced demand for these systems in the market. Additionally, dental procedures declined due to the fear of virus transmission and critical monitoring of oral health. In the U.S., dental procedures reduced to 25% in March 2020, a fall of 75% from March 2019. This, in turn, reduced the demand for imaging systems during the pandemic. Despite the dip in 2020, the market is said to steadily improve by Q2 of 2022.
The orthopedics segment dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of over 50.0% in 2021. It is further expected to maintain its lead over the forecast period. In orthopedics, CBCT allows the accurate determination of craniofacial skeleton permitting the diagnosis of anatomical structures. Other applications such as cleft palate assessment, tooth position and localization, resorption related to impacted teeth, bone density measurement for mini-implant placement, rapid maxillary expansion, and 3-dimensional cephalometry are fueling the segment growth.
The dental segment held the second-largest revenue share in 2021. Improved diagnostic capabilities, low radiation dose requirement, and detailed imaging ability have led to the growth of this segment. The dental segment is further divided into implantology, orthodontics, oral surgery, endodontics, periodontology, and others such as cleft lip and palate, TMJ analysis, jaw tumors, and orthognathic surgeries. The orthodontics segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2021 in the dental segment.
CBCT provides visualization of intricate structures inside the head to orthodontists, thereby reducing the need for invasive procedures and the time for a better outcome. Large volume CBCT is justified for complex skeletal abnormality cases including acquired or congenital craniomaxillofacial malformations. Integration of software programs and CBCT has enabled low dose and accurate analysis of symmetric maxillofacial dental and skeletal discrepancy leading to its increased adoption. The market is further divided into ENT, orthopedics, and others.
The standing X-rays segment dominated the market and accounted for a share of over 50.0% in 2021. Standing products are widely used in dental imaging owing to their low cost and small size. Scanners that allow patients to stand while imaging occupies less space, which is equivalent to the panoramic radiology devices, leading to the increased adoption by radiologists. Further, the need to adopt advanced technology in emerging economies to improve healthcare fuels the market growth in developing regions. Standing X-rays are mainly used for sesamoid conditions, foot alignment, ankle instability, bunion deformity, arthritic joints, diagnosis of fractures, and pre-and postoperative fractures.
Sitting X-rays are expected to expand at a CAGR of 7.42% during the forecast period. Sitting X-rays are mainly preferred by pediatric dentists to capture images with reduced movement ensuring better patient stability. The scan time varies for CBCT, making the seating feature most preferred, fueling the market growth. Sitting X-rays are mainly used for quality assessment of the jawbone for the placement of the implant, locating nerves, early diagnosis of oral tumors, density measurement for implant placement, identifying the most effective placement for implants, along with the best angle for fit, planning a surgical procedure, deciding the precise appropriate size and type of implants, and visualization and evaluation of impacted teeth. Further, the lying-down X-rays segment accounted for the lowest revenue share in 2021 due to the reduced need and accuracy of imaging scans in the supine position.
The hospitals segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 40.0% in 2021 due to the increased adoption in dental hospitals. CBCT examinations account for about 14% of all the imaging scans performed by dental hospitals. Furthermore, their usage in teaching or university-based hospitals has significantly contributed to the segment revenue. CBCT is one of the most useful tools in dental hospitals to identify the bone dimension and effectively place implants. Hospitals prefer installing CBCT units with cephalometric and panoramic modalities in a single unit. Novel advancement in CBCT technology (Xpert CT) enables surgeons to assess patients with ischemic stroke, opening another door in the CBCT application area.
Diagnostic centers ensure that referral-based imaging services are provided to the patients. An increase in awareness among dental specialties is expected to increase referrals for CBCT scans in developed countries. The clinics' segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of 7.1% over the forecast period. The high cost of installation and maintenance has impacted the adoption of these systems in clinics. The number of scans performed on CBCT units in clinics is more than those performed in hospitals that are the early adopters, such as those in the U.S. and European countries. This can be attributed to higher installations in clinics, Medicare reimbursement policies that cover CBCT scans, and the high purchasing power of people, eventually influencing the market growth.
North America dominated the market for a flat-panel detector-based x-ray for cone-beam computed tomography and accounted for a revenue share of over 35.0% in 2021.
