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

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown a mixed impact on the dental 3D printing market. The demand for dental 3D printing has been hampered significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic due to the safety measures taken by the governments such as temporary shutdowns of businesses, lockdowns, social distancing and others. In addition, the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in the global supply chains resulted in the poor availability of raw materials and components required for dental 3D printing. Furthermore, the reduced demand for dental services and orthodontic and prosthetic treatments has resulted in poor adoption of dental 3D printing. Likewise, global dental 3D printing has experienced a negative impact from the COVID-19 pandemic. On the positive side, the usage of dental 3D printing has increased as it is used in the manufacturing activities of face shields and PPE for healthcare professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has fuelled innovation in dental 3D printing. These factors shared a positive impact on the dental 3D printing market growth.

MARKET DRIVERS:

The growing aging population worldwide is one of the key factors propelling the dental 3D printing market growth. People who are aged are more likely to experience several dental problems and require various dental treatments such as dentures, bridges, and crowns that are manufactured using 3D printing. Using 3D printing, dental products can be manufactured fastest with greater precision. Aged people require customized dental products that match their unique anatomy. Dental products that are accurate and precise can be manufactured using dental 3D printing technology and such products fit perfectly with the needs of the patients. These products are believed to be reducing the risk of complications and improve the patient's comfort and satisfaction. As per the statistics published by the World Health Organization (WHO), the population of 60 years or more is anticipated to reach 1.4 billion by 2030 and 2.1 billion by 2050. With the growing aging population, the demand for efficient and cost-effective dental treatments is also increasing. Dental 3D printing technology can help manufacture dental products faster and cost-effectively and enable dental professionals to offer dental treatments at an affordable cost.

The benefits associated with dental 3D printing technologies such as custom-made dental products are another key factor propelling the market growth. The preference from people for personalized dental treatments is growing substantially and the demand for custom-made products such as aligners, dentures, and crowns is also increasing. Dental 3D printing technology has been increasingly used in recent years to manufacture personalized dental products and this trend is likely to fuel in the coming years and contribute to the market growth.

The cost-savings and increased efficiency of dental 3D printing further drive the adoption of this technology and contribute to market growth. The growing demand for cosmetic dentistry, increasing awareness among people regarding dental health and preventative healthcare, rising prevalence of dental diseases and increasing adoption of dental implants further promote the dental 3D printing market growth.

MARKET RESTRAINTS:

Poor adoption of dental 3D printing technology by dental practitioners is one of the key factors hampering the market growth. The high cost of dental 3D printers and lack of standardization hinder market growth. The stringent regulatory environment for dental 3D printing and competition from traditional methods of dental manufacturing, such as casting and milling inhibit the market’s growth rate. Low awareness among patients and dental professionals regarding the benefits of dental 3D printing and technical challenges further impede market growth.
