The cone-beam computed tomography market will show rapid growth due to the increasing cases of dental disorders, advancements in technology, and expanding application areas of CBCT systems.

Dental diseases are the most common noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) and affect people throughout their lifetime. The increasing prevalence of dental disorders and the rising of the geriatric population are found to be the major factors for the growth of the cone-beam computed tomography market in the forecasted period. The rising spending capacity of consumers, especially in the emerging nations is projected to enhance the market growth in the coming years.

For instance, according to the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016, oral diseases have affected half of the world’s population with dental caries (tooth decay) in permanent teeth being the most prevalent condition assessed.

In addition to this, there is the adoption of advanced cone beam computed tomography extremity scanner that has increased in dental and orthopedic areas due to their specialized requirement for the human imaging diagnosis and treatment. Furthermore, the key players in the market are expected to make heavy investments for the research projects, which is projected to ensure the growth of the market.

Key Market Trends


Dental Applications is Expected to Dominate the Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Market During the Forecast Period
