The global digital dentistry market reached a value of $444.6 million in 2010, and by 2017 has been predicted to increase even more to hit a total market value of $1.2 billion.
Growth in the digital dentistry market is expected to achieve marked improvements in the efficiency of dentist clinician care delivery and the longevity of crowns and bridges.
Digital dentistry may be defined in a broad scope as any dental technology or device that incorporates digital or computer-controlled components in contrast to that of mechanical or electrical alone.
The market for digital dentistry products is highly competitive. The competitive factors in the market include features, reliability, brand name recognition, distribution network, customer service, and price.
In Asia the digital dentistry market is beginning to benefit from recent hospital privatisation projects, expansion of private clinics, aging populations and a growing urban middle class.
Dentists and laboratories find themselves in the midst of an increasing demand for higher quality restorations and are investing rapidly in CAD/CAM solutions that boost their accuracy and efficiency.
Digital dentistry is more than just hype. When properly implemented and fully educated, return on investment can be excellent, increased joy in practicing dentistry can be experienced, and better care for patients can be delivered.
