Intraoral Scanners Market Insight 2021 - 2030

The global intraoral scanners market size was valued at $834.63 million in 2020, and is estimated to reach $4,775.36 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 15.9% from 2021 to 2030. Intraoral scanners (IOS) are devices that are used for capturing direct optical impressions in dentistry. Similar to other three-dimensional (3D) scanners, it projects a light source onto the object to be scanned such as the dental arches, including prepared teeth and implant scanbodies. The images of the dentogingival tissues captured by these imaging sensors are processed by the scanning software, which generates point clouds. These point clouds are then triangulated by the same software, creating a 3D surface model. Orthodontists use intraoral scanners to take 3D images of the teeth and soft tissue of the intraoral areas. When compared to traditional approaches, intraoral scanner images are of higher quality, resulting in high-quality treatment results.

Edentulism is a condition of tooth loss, which is common in the geriatric population and therefore, monitored in many countries. The reasons behind edentulism are periodontal disease, dental caries, unhealthy lifestyle, and aging of population. The high prevalence of tooth loss resulted in a greater number of patients availing dental care, which, in turn, is expected to drive the intraoral scanners market growth. Globally, the aging population increases exponentially, which leads to a rise in various diseases, including edentulism and tooth loss or decay. For instance, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, it is expected that by 2060 people aged 65 years or older increase to 92.0 million. Since, they are prone to oral health disorders and conditions, the market for the intraoral scanners increases with the rise in geriatric population. It is estimated that about 25% of adults aged 60 years and older do not have any natural teeth. Therefore, the increase in ageing population and subsequent rise of dental disorders are stimulating the demand for intraoral scanners in the developed and developing economies. Moreover, the intraoral scanners market trends like increase in geriatric population and rise in the number of patients suffering from the dental disorders also contribute in the growth of intraoral scanners industry. However, high cost of the device and a dearth of skilled professionals are expected to impede the market growth. The intraoral scanners market opportunity is estimated to be catalysed by the strategies such as development of scanners, which are portable and easy to fit in hands allowing the dentists to freely move in all angulations inside the mouth without causing discomfort to the patients.

Dental disorders, such as tooth loss or edentulism, are key health and economic burdens for an economy. Thus, the need for effective imaging options is vital for the treatment of dental disorders. Intraoral scanners are devised to obtain digital impressions or capture three-dimensional virtual images of the intraoral areas for dental treatment. Furthermore, the demand for intraoral scanners has increased due to an upsurge in incidents of dental disorders, such as edentulism, and increase in geriatric population.

In addition, benefits of intraoral scanners over traditional impression techniques, which include provision of detailed information about dentition and soft tissue fuel their adoption in the market. Asia-Pacific offers lucrative opportunities for the market growth, owing to increase in prevalence of dental disorders, rise in geriatric population, and the launch of technologically advanced intraoral scanners. Thus, emerging countries, such as China and India, possess high growth potential for the market.
