According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research “Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Market (Application – Dental Implants, Orthodontics, Oral Surgery, Endodontics, and General Surgery): Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2015–2023”, the global CBCT market was valued at US$ 407.5 Mn in 2014 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 10.0% from 2015 to 2023 to reach US$ 960.8 Mn by 2023.
Information related to diagnosis is vital for valid decision of a treatment plan in dentistry. Precise images lead to a better treatment plan and improved results. CBCT is an evolving technology suitable for dental images and maxillofacial structures. It can provide the most relevant clinical data compared to conventional imaging methods such as radiographs. The introduction of CBCT technology in dentistry has changed the diagnostic landscape rapidly allowing dental professionals to diagnose in three dimensions. CBCT systems are now preferred to conventional systems for advantages such as lower radiation dose to patients, smaller acquisition times for the resolution required in dentistry, and affordable cost option to medical CT, and improved resolution with more details.
Disorders prevalent among adult patients such as periodontal diseases, tooth loss, endodontically restored teeth, restored teeth and trauma sequelae, and coexisting with malocclusion are driving demand for various dentistry applications. Demand for orthodontic treatment in adults has increased significantly over the past few years with the need for detailed diagnosis. In orthodontics, CBCT helps in visualization of impacted teeth, identification of root resorption, ankylosis and dentoalveolar fracture, evaluation of height and bone volume, examination of temporomandibular joint and upper airway, accurate determination of bone-tooth inconsistencies in non-erupted teeth, and diagnosis of pathologies. Moreover, increasing accessibility of this technology helps dentists by providing three-dimensional representation of the maxillofacial skeleton with nominal distortion.
Based on application, the global cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) market has been segmented dental implants, orthodontics, oral surgery, endodontics, and general dental surgery. Geographically, the market has been analyzed for five regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Rest of the World. The CBCT market is driven by increasing demand for applications in dentistry across the globe. North America held the largest share of the CBCT market in 2014, followed by Europe. The largest market share of North America is attributed to increasing geriatric population and growing demand for advanced technology products for dental imaging in the U.S. According to statistics provided by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (2014), about 100,000 to 300,000 dental implants are placed each year. However, due to the industry’s failure to offer lower cost, conservative dentistry took a downturn during the recession.
