Market Forecast on 3D Printing in Dentistry
This article provides a summary on 3d printing in dentistry and where the industry is expected to be at by 2025. Despite slow early adoption for this technology market experts expect a sizable and healthy growth rate for the next 5 years.
How Exactly Can 3D Printers
3D printers used in dentistry are created from materials and software, that can provide very accurate and precise dental prosthesis, precision working models, drill guide and orthodontic thermoforming models, and overall can help cut costs and improve efficiency. They can produce models, parts and complete restorations in a variety of materials. 3D printing technology is developing rapidly in a variety of fields and is an active area of growth in the dental industry. It is expected that soon it will even be used for bioprinting, in order to 3D print tissue-like structures.
3D printing enables dentists to create custom designs for a wide variety of products, including a combination of CAD / CAM, oral scanning and design. Advanced technology helps to explore the possibility of improving dental care and producing dental parts right from the CAD design image, and many of the major leading manufacturers develop new technologies in 3D printing for the development of modern dentistry are changing.
3D printing technology in dentistry
is a big step for whole industry.
The global dental 3D printing Market valued approximately at $1.1 billion in 2016 is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 23.5% over the forecast period 2017-2025.
Key factors that give growth to the Dental 3D printing market are increasing adoption of the dental 3D printers in dental hospitals and clinics, the significant increase in the geriatric population, and increasing disposable income is leading to increased dental expenditure resulting in the utilization of digital dentistry. However, reimbursement scenario and stringent regulatory process for the approval of 3d printing equipment may hinder the growth of this market.
3D Printing in Dentistry – expected to reach over 9.86 Billion by 2025
According to Global News Wire and FiorMarkets, the Dental 3D Printing industry is expected to reach 9.86 billion by 2025. While other sources say the industry will only reach $7.4 billion in this same time period, it goes without saying that 3D Printing is impacting much more than consumer technology.
