The global dental 3D printing market is predicted to grow at 25.6% CAGR during the forecast period with the market size reaching USD 6.2 billion by 2024. The market is driven by factors such as the mounting occurrence of dental caries and other dental diseases, implementation of dental 3D printers in clinics and hospitals, and the mounting need for cosmetic dentistry. Dental 3D printing combining with oral scanning, and CAD/CAM design can rapidly and accurately produce bridges, stone models, crowns and range of orthodontic appliances.
Expanding geriatric population, mounting acceptance of CAD/CAM technology and mounting healthcare spending are also fueling the growth for the dental 3D printing market. For instance, according to the WHO, globally in 2010 approximately 524 million people were aged 65 years and older and is expected to reach 1.5 billion in 2050. Increasing prevalence of dental cavities and dental diseases across the globe are leading to the development of advanced products using 3D printers. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally 60%-90% of school children suffer from dental cavities.

On the basis of product and services, the market is subdivided into equipment, services, and materials. Of all product and services, the services segment accounted the largest share in the market due to mounting outsourcing done by the dental hospitals, dental laboratories, and small dental clinics, to the 3D printing service providers. The equipment is further subdivided into dental 3D printers and dental 3D scanners. Moreover, the materials are further subdivided into plastic, metal, and others.
On the basis of technology, the market is subdivided into polyjet technology, vat photopolymerization, selective laser sintering, fused deposition modeling, and others. High precision and accuracy of this technique are some of the factors responsible for the growth of the vat photopolymerization. Of all the technology, the vat photopolymerization accounted foremost share in the dental 3D printing market. The vat photopolymerization market is further subdivided into stereolithography and digital light processing.
On the basis of application, the market is subdivided into prosthodontics, implantology, and orthodontics. Mounting edentulous population, the escalating need for crowns and bridges, the mounting occurrence of dental caries, the mounting occurrence of tooth loss, the launch of innovative technologies such as CAD/CAM and the mounting acceptance of dental 3D printers and scanners are the factors growing the demand of prosthodontics. Among all applications, the prosthodontics accounted for the largest share in the dental 3D printing market.
The different end users of the market are dental laboratories, dental academic and research institutes, and dental hospitals and clinics. The mounting number of dental laboratories, speedy implementation of innovative technologies by dental laboratories, and expanding need for customized dental outlining solutions are the factors growing the demand for dental 3D printing in dental laboratories. Among all end users, the dental laboratories accounted for the largest share in the dental 3D printing market.
North America accounted for the major share in the dental 3D printing industry in 2017, globally as in the region the occurrence of dental caries and tooth loss due to the aging population is increasing. Mounting oral care expenditure, technological improvement, the mounting need for cosmetic surgery, and escalating attractiveness of digital dentistry are also up surging growth of the North American dental 3D printing market. Asia-Pacific is observed to witness the fastest growth in the market, due to expanding the geriatric population. In addition, the mounting occurrence of dental diseases, mounting medical tourism, and mounting healthcare expenditure are also creating a positive impact on the dental 3D printing market growth in the region.
Key players in the dental 3D printing market are catering to the demand of these devices by investing in technologically advanced products in their product portfolio across the globe. In June 2018, 3D Systems introduced DMP Flex 100 and DMP Dental 100 3D printers, to provide versatility and material for entry-level metal 3D printing and dental applications. Stratasys, Renishaw, Carbon, 3D Systems, Formlabs, Concept Laser, Envisiontec, SLM Solutions Group, DWS, Prodways Group, and EOS GmbH are the key players offering dental 3D printing.
