Dental X-ray systems have developed significantly over the decades with advancement in 2D & 3D dental imaging and introduction of intraoral, panoramic and cone beam computed tomography machines. The market entry of computed tomography (CT), digital 3D imaging application is increasing significantly in dental radiology. The advantages of 3D imaging is high resolution imaging of hard tissues which is one of the unique attribute of 3D dental X-ray systems. Increasing prevalence of dental disorders & awareness related to disease diagnosis is expected to assist the overall dental X-ray systems market. New X-ray technologies in imaging provide minimum radiation exposure and possess an advantage of image analysis that may develop sensitivity and decrease error caused by subjective analysis. According to the World health Organization (WHO), periodontal diseases and dental caries have been the most common oral disorders affecting 60% to 90% of schoolchildren and 5% to 20% of middle-aged adults. Thus, rising prevalence of dental disorders and awareness related to these diseases expected to fuel the growth of global dental X-ray systems market.
Digital X-ray systems and analog X-ray systems are the two types of products found in diagnosis of dental disorders. In 2017, analog X-ray systems dominated the market with 53% of the market share but the increasing demand for technologically upgraded digital X-ray systems is expected to take over and dominate the market during the forecast period 2018 to 2026. The advantages of analogue X-ray systems is its comparatively cost-efficient than digital X-rays which makes it product of choice for dentists from developing & under developed countries. However, the scenario is also shifting as the prices of novel digital X-ray systems are shredded down which will act as a major advantage for growth of these systems in the near future.
The three types of X-ray systems present in the market such as intraoral X-ray systems, extraoral X-ray systems, and hybrid X-ray systems. Extraoral X-ray systems dominated the overall market in year 2017, due to key driving factors such as wide applications in therapeutic & diagnostic procedure for dental & oral disorders or trauma injuries, assists in early detection of oral & dental disorders providing patient comfort and safety.
