Dental caries detectors are devices used to detect dental cavities or early demineralization of enamel or dentin. They are an important tool in dental practice as they help dentists identify caries at an early stage, allowing for preventive treatment instead of drilling and removing the decayed tooth material. With growing expenditure on oral healthcare and awareness about dental health, the demand for reliable caries detectors is increasing.
The global Dental Caries Detectors Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 323.44 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 10.% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
Rising oral healthcare expenditure is one of the major factors propelling the growth of the dental caries detectors market. According to estimates by the World Health Organization, approximately 60-90% of school children and nearly 100% of adults have dental cavities. As awareness about oral hygiene and the role of regular dental check-ups in preventing tooth decay increases, people are inclined to spend more on their dental care. This has prompted an increase in visits to dentists. Dental caries detectors help dentists identify cavities at an initial stage, allowing for timely intervention. Their widespread adoption is thus being driven by patients seeking preventive dental care rather than curative treatments involving procedures like root canal or tooth extraction. This trend is expected to continue over the forecast period, supporting dental caries detectors market expansion.
Strength: Dental caries detectors offer non-invasive and quick diagnosis of dental caries. The detectors provide real-time detection of dental issues to assist in timely treatment.
Weakness: High cost of advanced dental caries detectors limits their widespread adoption. Alternative low-cost detection methods can reduce accuracy.
Opportunity: Growing incidences of dental caries worldwide offer scope for increased sales of detectors. Rising dental tourism in developing nations boosts the market growth.
Threats: Limited reimbursement policies restrict market revenue. Alternative low-cost traditional detection techniques act as substitutes.
The Global Dental Caries Detectors Market Size is expected to witness high growth.
Regional Analysis: North America dominates the market currently due to rising dental expenditure and surgeries in the US and Canada. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market due to expanding medical tourism in countries such as India, Thailand and Mexico.
