Dental digital x-ray or dental digital radiography is a diagnostic and preventive approach. X-ray passes through soft tissue in the gum and gets observed by dense cells that produce the image. These digital dental x-rays enable dentists to diagnose common dental problems such as cavities, a disorder related to the gum, and dental infections. Digital dental x-rays have been the preferable modality over the years because of their advantages, such as safer and more convenient imaging techniques. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry survey in 2017, physical attractiveness and self-esteem were the primary factors influencing people to opt for cosmetic dentistry procedures. In addition, as per CDC statistics, 92% of the U.S. population between the ages of 20 and 64 have more frequently reported dental cases over the years.


The global digital dental x-ray market is significantly growing due to the increasing number of dental disorders, growing demand for cosmetic dentistry, and rising number of technological advancements in dental imaging techniques. Growing demand for cosmetic dentistry is expected to promote the dental digital X-ray market growth. According to the estimations from the Global Oral Health Status Report from World Health Organization (WHO), around 3.5 people worldwide suffer from oral diseases. Therefore, the adoption of cosmetic dentistry is growing significantly worldwide and is estimated at a CAGR of 12.88% from 2022 to 2027. Therefore, the rise of the cosmetic dentistry market is anticipated to reflect the growth of the digital dental X-ray market during the forecast period.

In addition, the YOY rise in the geriatric population worldwide and the launch of innovative products are further anticipated to fuel the growth rate of the digital dental X-ray market. According to World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 1.4 billion people are expected to age more than 60 by 2030. As per the reports, it is estimated that an increase in the prevalence of dental caries and periodontal diseases with severe dental impairment has been reported recently. According to the statistics published by the World Health Organization, an estimated 530 million children are suffering from dental caries of primary teeth. Furthermore, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 47.2% of U.S. adults aged more than 30 years are suffering from periodontal diseases.


However, the high cost of dental X-ray equipment and the lack of professionals in completing this dental x-ray equipment restrict growth. Moreover, complex government regulations and a lack of reimbursement policies are projected to impede the development of the global dental digital X-ray market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the digital dental x-ray market:

COVID-19 is a global pandemic that was first identified in Wuhan, China. The world health organization announced COVID-19 as the emergence of healthcare. It is an infectious disease that spreads quickly from person to person. All the governments had declared nationwide lockdown and a ban on transportation and flights to control the spread. During the first half of 2020, the market had a decline in growth. The pandemic had a negative impact on the dental industry due to the canceled and postponed treatment procedures. In addition, the digital dental x-ray supply chain had been stopped due to the ban on transportation. Countries like the U.S. and India purchase raw materials from China, which disrupts the supply chain that negatively impacts the manufacturing industries.

Moreover, the second period of the pandemic has positively impacted market growth. As a result, the demand for cosmetic procedures has increased, research and activities have doubled, and manufacturers in the industry have focused on producing digital dental X-ray machines. Therefore, the use of X-rays for dental cosmetic procedures is expected to increase, and the demand for the market has increased. However, despite the negative impact during the initial period, the market is expected to have better growth in the coming years.
