Dental X-Ray Market Report Scope & Overview:

The Dental X-Ray Market Size was valued at USD 2.9 billion in 2022, and is expected to reach USD 5.48 billion by 2030 and grow at a CAGR of 8.3% over the forecast period 2023-2030.

A dental X-ray can be used to diagnose oral and dental problems and diseases. X-rays are absorbed by teeth and bone, which create a picture. Because the gums and cheeks are softer tissues, it easily flows through them. Dental digital X-Rays can properly detect abnormalities that are not obvious during a typical dental examination. This x-ray machine can be used for a variety of tasks, including examining tooth roots, detecting cavities, determining the state of a developing tooth, and detecting unusual bone or tooth densities.

COVID-19 had an impact on all markets, along with the dentistry business, because governments implemented a complete lockdown as a preventive step. The pandemic has wreaked havoc on the whole medical device sector's supply chain, including the dental X-ray industry. Because of the drop in the number of dental treatments after the second quarter of 2020, the coronavirus outbreak had a negative influence on the market. Nevertheless, this short-term dip is projected to fade, and demand for dental X-rays is likely to rise during the pandemic. The market will also rise as people become more aware of the need of oral hygiene and as dental disorders become more prevalent.

By Product:

In 2021, the analogue category had the highest revenue share of 59.6%. Nevertheless, in the coming years, this market share is likely to drop. The delayed growth can be related to the requirement for many x-rays to obtain a good image, which results in recurrent radiation exposure. This level of exposure exceeds the capabilities of digital technologies. Besides the risk of excessive radiation exposure, the system consumes more time and chemicals, and generating x-rays necessitates the use of experienced personnel.

Nevertheless, due to technical developments, digital innovation, and expansion of business, the digital type will witness a significant change in market growth. Due to the rapid deployment of digital sensors, this segment is expected to maintain its market position. The growing popularity of digital sensors can be attributed to features such as reduced operation time and high-quality imagery.

By Type:

Dentists can use intraoral radiography equipment to detect cavities and evaluate the overall condition of their teeth and jawbones. The most extensively utilised diagnostic approach in dentistry is intraoral x-ray scanning. Intraoral imaging is used for a variety of treatments, including detecting caries and evaluating the position of endodontic files. Because of the extraordinary spatial and contrast resolution given by these devices, intraoral x-ray equipment is predicted to increase rapidly.

The primary goal of periapical x-rays is to capture an image of a root tip on film, which aids in the visualisation of the entire tooth as well as the state of the surrounding bone. Bitewing x-rays acquire images of crowns of maxillary and mandibular teeth by focusing on the buccal surface of the teeth at a perpendicular angle. Occlusal x-ray scans give a better picture of the maxilla and mandible, allowing the quantity and location of fractures in the upper and lower jaws to be detected.

By Application Type

Medicals, cosmetics, and forensics are the three segments of the market. Dental radiography is a useful tool for diagnosing and planning therapy since it allows you to see the extent of various diseases such cavities, tumours, and fractures.

Over the projection period, cosmetic dentistry is expected to grow at a high rate. The popularity of dental aesthetics is spreading over the world, resulting in a boom in demand for aesthetic operations, which is thought to have doubled in recent years. Rise in aesthetic procedures like whitening, tooth contouring, and cavity filling is fueling demand.

The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same.

Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.
