Global Cone Beam Imaging Market Size (2023 to 2028)

As per our report, the global cone beam imaging market size is estimated to grow to USD 1302.61 million by 2028 from USD 801.50 million in 2023, displaying a CAGR of 10.2% during the forecast period.

Cone beam imagining is a technology used while performing dental and maxillofacial surgeries. A computed tomography technique used for maxillofacial and dental surgery is known as cone beam imaging. It creates three-dimensional (3D) pictures of the craniofacial region's bones, nerve paths, soft tissues, and dental structures. A diagnostic approach for seeing various regions of the human body is referred to as Cone Beam Imaging. The method employs X-ray imaging, with the pictures captured by this technique forming a cone. Dental implant planning, imaging of abnormal teeth, examination of facial and jaw abnormalities, cleft palate assessment, and identification of dental caries are just a few of the clinical applications.

To improve the operator's convenience, imaging device manufacturers are integrating X-ray tubes, mobile C-arm platforms, and digital displays to create innovative versions. A cone-beam system is simple to use since it requires the patient to sit in a chair while the scanner moves in a complete circle around the head, collecting all of the scan data required. There is no need for any extra preparation with this technique. The procedure provides pictures in various angles and analyses of the interrelationship between teeth, bones, nerves, and tissues to the doctor. It enables the doctor to evaluate the patient's condition using detailed data and, as a result, plan the most effective treatment plan.


Growing cases of dental disorders, increasing usage of CBCT systems together driving growth to the global cone beam imaging market growth.

The low cost of these cone beam imaging devices and the growing aging population worldwide are significant factors that accelerate market growth. The booming digital dental imaging services industry, advanced healthcare solutions, and rising cosmetic dentistry further enhance the global cone beam imaging market growth. The growing adoption of these cone beam imaging devices and advancements in the technologies, high disposable income, and the existing trend towards digital dental imaging further promote the growth rate of the global cone beam imaging market.


Lack of awareness on the usage of technology advancements is one major factor hampering cone beam imaging market growth.

Moreover, the cost associated with cone beam imaging devices is so expensive is restraining the market. Lack of proper image clarity during the dental and facial expressions scan limits the market of cone beam imaging. Lack of reimbursement policies, particularly in developing countries, and also a shortage of lab technicians are the factors obstructing the market of cone beam imaging devices.

COVID-19 Impact on the global cone beam imaging market:

The disease has spread to almost every nation globally since the COVID-19 virus epidemic in December 2019, prompting the World Health Organization to declare it a public health emergency. While the healthcare industry as a whole is growing, some sectors are developing at a slower rate. The emergence of the coronavirus pandemic of 2019 has had an impact on many aspects of life. COVID-19 is a global public health crisis that has impacted almost every market. The virus spreads quickly by sneezing or coughing droplets and largely via direct contact with infected people.

The continuing epidemic has had an impact on the practice of oral and maxillofacial radiology. As a result, the Cone Beam Imaging Market had a negative impact during this pandemic. The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak has affected dental operations, which have been restricted to emergency treatments such as endodontic or surgical treatment of pain and infection and treatment of trauma patients. In this condition, imaging is critical for proper diagnosis and therapy. As a result, oral and maxillofacial radiology clinics must adjust their strategy to continue providing services throughout this critical period.
