The global dental lasers market is expected to decline from $172.48 million in 2019 to $159.84 million in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -7.33%. The decline is mainly due to the COVID-19 outbreak that has led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of industries and other commercial activities. The global dentistry medical lasers market is then expected to recover and reach $206.14 million in 2023 at a CAGR of 8.85%.
The rising prevalence of oral diseases contributed to the growth of the dental laser medical device market. According to the World Health Organization, oral health conditions include dental caries, periodontal diseases, oral cancers, Noma, and other diseases. The prevalence of periodontal disease, a common gum disease in adults, was reported to range between 20% to 50%. Further, according to the Global Burden of Disease 2017 study, 796 million people were suffering from severe periodontitis, and 532 million had untreated caries in primary teeth. The rise in the prevalence of oral disease increased the demand for lasers to treat the oral diseases, thereby driving the dentistry medical lasers market.
The growing geriatric population globally also contributed to the dental lasers market growth. According to the World Bank population data, in 2019, 9.9% of the world population was above 65 years age and according to the United Nations (UN), the population over 80 years is projected to triple from 143 million in 2019 to 426 million in 2050. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 5 – that is 13% – of adults over 65 years of age have lost all their natural teeth, and 26% of adults over 75 years of age have lost all their natural teeth. The growing geriatric population boosted the demand for dental services and this, in turn, drove the market for dentistry medical lasers.
The dental lasers market consists of sales of dental lasers and related services by entities (organizations, sole traders and partnerships) that manufacture dental lasers. Dental lasers are used in the treatment of medical conditions related to teeth. These lasers are used to perform tasks such as gum reshaping, removal of bacteria during the root canal, biopsy or lesion removal.
The high cost and limitations of dental lasers are expected to limit the dentistry medical lasers market. According to WebMD, a publisher of information on human health, the cost of the dental laser machine is much higher compared to the cost of a traditional dental drill. The cost of the dental laser is from a few thousand dollars to above $100,000 that can be used for teeth cutting, and the cost of the dental drill is around $600. The dental laser has limitations such as not being used for teeth with fillings in place, fill cavities located in between teeth, and cannot be used to remove defective crowns or silver fillings. The high cost and limitations associated with a dental laser make it less accessible to a large population and have a negative impact on the dentistry medical lasers market growth.
