Global Dental 3D Printing Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global dental 3D printing market size was worth USD 2,338.76 million in 2022. The market is expected to register a CAGR of 22.32% from 2022 to 2027 and be worth USD 7833.76 million by 2028 from USD 2860.77 million in 2023.

Dental 3D printing is a type of modern dentistry that is becoming increasingly popular in the dental industry. Dentures, surgical guides, dental implants, crowns, and bridges are all types of three-dimensional solid dental models that can be printed with dental 3D printing. Dental 3D printing is an additive procedure that includes laying down sequential layers of materials to generate 3D models programmed by a digital file. Oral scanning, CAD/CAM, 3D printing, and designing are some of the processes involved in dental 3D printing. In addition, the production of drill guides for dental implants, orthodontics, and surgery, the production of physical models for prosthodontics, craniomaxillofacial and orthopedic implants, the manufacture of dental, and the fabrication of copings and frameworks for an implant and dental restorations are all benefits of this advanced manufacturing process.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global dental 3D printing market:

The pandemic of COVID-19 would have a long-term positive impact on the dental 3D printing sector. In early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had a detrimental impact on the dental 3D printing market, as most dental offices, clinics, and laboratories were forced to close due to lockdowns and quarantine regulations in many regions of the world. All non-essential dental procedures were postponed as a result, and the number of outpatient cases declined significantly during this time.

Business operations in the dental 3D printing market have been hampered due to the ongoing pandemic since people are only attending dentists when necessary. Formlabs, a 3D printing technology developer and producer, is dedicated its 3D printers to developing necessary tools and kits for identifying patients with potential COVID-19 infection. Following the reopening of clinics, the number of patients visiting clinics decreased due to their fear of becoming infected, affecting the market growth. However, it is expected to have a long-term favorable impact on the expansion of Dental 3D Printing, as cases reduce, especially in developed nations.


Dental caries and other dental diseases are becoming more common, cosmetic dentistry is becoming more popular, dental 3D printers are becoming more accepted in hospitals and clinics, and the senior population is rapidly growing, all of which are driving factors in the dental 3D printing medical equipment market. These reasons are functioning as key market drivers for the dental 3D printing market. In addition, as people's disposable income rises, they're spending more on their dental health, boosting the use of digital dentistry. Aside from that, increasing alcohol and tobacco consumption and other hazardous lifestyle changes that are leading to an increase in dental problems, such as oral cancer, are expected to fuel market expansion.

Dental technicians and clinicians are more accepting of digital dentistry, creating profitable opportunities for 3D printer makers to pursue a customized rather than a standardized approach in the dental 3D printing market. Dentistry is being reshaped by 3D printing. This is evident because advances in the dental 3D printing market offer value-grab possibilities for organizations ranging from dentures to Invisalign retainer braces. Custom-made dental implants that meet the individual needs of customers are now largely owing to 3D printing. Manufacturers are starting to realize that a one-size-fits-all approach to dental implants typically necessitates numerous versions of the same mouthpiece. Furthermore, rising R&D expenditures by key companies, rising consumer awareness, and rapid technological improvements are expected to drive dental 3D printer sales, accelerating the market's expansion over the forecast period.


The lack of a competent workforce is one of the most important barriers to adopting additive manufacturing or 3D printing. The dental 3D printing market has a small pool of employees with 3D printing experience, exacerbated by the quick rate of technology and material change. In addition, due to cost constraints, dental 3D printing facilities may be expensive for small and medium-sized laboratories. Because the majority of dental labs are small or medium-sized, this is a significant commercial challenge.

This research report on the global dental 3D printing market has been segmented and sub-segmented based on product & service, technology, application, end-user & region.

Dental 3D printing Market – By Product & Services:

  • Services
  • Materials
    • Plastics
    • Metals
    • Other Materials
  • Equipment
    • Dental 3D Printers
    • Dental 3D Scanners

Based on product & services, the services segment is predicted to lead the global market during the forecast period owing to dental 3D printing service providers' low pricing and small hospitals, dental clinics, and laboratories' large-scale outsourcing of dental product design and manufacture.

Dental 3D Printing Market – By Technology:

  • Vat Photopolymerization
    • Stereolithography
    • Digital Light Processing
  • Fused Deposition Modeling
  • Selective Laser Sintering
  • PolyJet Printing

During the forecast period, the fused deposition modeling segment of the dental 3D printing market is expected to develop at the fastest rate.

Dental 3D printing Market – By Application:

  • Prosthodontics
  • Orthodontics
  • Implantology

The market for dental 3D printing is predicted to dominate by prosthodontics segment during the forecast period. The expanding need for crowns and bridges, rising frequency of dental caries, increasing incidence of tooth loss, and growing customer acceptance of innovative dental technology are all factors contributing to the prosthodontics segment's substantial market share.

Dental 3D printing Market – By End-User:

  • Dental Laboratories
  • Dental Hospitals and Clinics
  • Dental Academic and Research Institutes

Based on end-user, the dental laboratories segment held the leading share in the global market in 2020. Over the forecast period, the segment is expected to have the greatest CAGR. The segment's growth is being aided by the increased adoption of modern technology in laboratories. Furthermore, demand for dental 3D printing technologies is being driven by an increase in the number of rapid dental laboratories, rising demand for customized dental framing solutions required for various applications, and increasing outsourcing of several manufacturing functions to dental laboratories.

Dental 3D Printing Market – By Region:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia-Pacific
  • Latin America
  • Middle East and Africa

Geographically, the North American market is predicted to have the greatest share of the worldwide dental 3D printing market during the forecast period. The high and growing incidence of dental caries and tooth loss, high oral care spending, and the expanding popularity of digital dentistry all contribute to the North American region's large share. In addition, the United States is also home to the great majority of worldwide players, making it a powerhouse of innovation in the dental 3D printing market.

Due to an increase in the number of dental problems, increased government expenditure for oral care, the presence of disposable income, an increase in the number of people visiting a dentist, and an increase in demand for cosmetic dentistry, Europe is expected to be the world's second-largest market.

The dental 3D printing market is booming in the Asia Pacific, with Japan, China, and Australia among the most promising countries. Supportive foreign investment policies and relatively low operating costs in these countries attract leading players to form strategic distribution partnerships with regional players operating in these countries to strengthen their overseas territories.
