The North America dental x-ray market is expected to reach US$ 2,129.71 million by 2027 from US$ 1,119.31 million in 2019; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2020 to 2027.
The growth of the market in North America is attributed to the technological advancements in dental imaging techniques and increasing incidence of dental diseases. Further, growing number of collaboration and partnerships among industry players offers lucrative opportunities for the growth of the North America dental x-ray market players during the forecast period. However, limited awareness about imaging procedures and high costs of procedures hamper the market growth in this region.
The North America dental x-ray market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period due to growing prevalence of oral and dental conditions as well as increasing popularity of cosmetic dentistry. The dental cosmetic industry has gained a substantial traction over a period. The procedures are aimed at improving the appearance of gums, teeth, and bites. The cosmetic dentistry also involves smile correction and other aesthetic surgeries. Millennial and baby boomers are primarily responsible for the growth of cosmetic dentistry. As per the recent survey of dental professionals of American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) 2015, cosmetic procedures continue to be popular among the patients seeking cosmetic treatments in the US. Moreover, as per the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the dental cosmetic procedures are anticipated to rise by 19% from 2016 to 2026 in the US. Thus, the increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry has fuelled the demand for dental X-ray systems that serve as first-line diagnostic tools during these procedures.
Based on product, the North America dental x-ray market is segmented into digital and analog. In 2019, the digital product segment held a larger share of the market. The segment is further expected to register a faster CAGR during the forecast period.
