The global dental imaging market size was valued at US$ 2.86 billion in 2021 and is expected to hit US$ 9.6 billion by 2030, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.1% from 2022 to 2030.
One of the major factors driving the growth of global dental imaging market is growing burden of dental disorders. According to World Health Organization (WHO) report from March 2020, oral disorders impact approximately 3.5 billion people globally, and severe gum disorders which can lead to tooth loss is also highly frequent, affecting nearly 10% of the worldwide population. Hence, these figures show the surge in demand for dental imaging all around the globe.
The global dental imaging market is expanding due to adoption of innovative technologies. In addition, the growing research and development activities in dental radiology is also paving way for the growth and development of global dental imaging market. Moreover, computer aided manufacturing and computer aided design are widely used in dental imaging. All these factors are creating growth opportunities for the global dental imaging market.
On the other hand, the factors such as lack of awareness regarding dental imaging among people and lack of resources in developing and underdeveloped regions are restricting the expansion of global dental imaging market. In addition, the high cost of dental imaging devices and equipment also hampers the dental imaging market growth. Furthermore, the global dental imaging market is also hampered due to the low number of dentists and dental practitioners in low- and medium-income nations. As per the National Health Profile in 2018, the Dental Council of India has over 2.7 lakh qualified dentists, with the government employing only 7,239 of them. Thus, all these factors are hindering the growth of global dental imaging market.
The government is also taking constant efforts for the development of dental imaging market. The government is collaborating with market players for launch of new products in the dental imaging market. In addition, government is also providing tax benefits to the dental imaging market players all around the globe.

All these factors are driving the growth of intraoral dental imaging segment.
The extraoral segment is expected to witness fastest growth over the forecast period. The extraoral dental imaging segment is growing at moderate rate as they provide greater control over radiation dose than intraoral modalities. They are most typically utilized to diagnose bigger problems like temporomandibular joint abnormalities or jammed teeth. Thus, this factor is driving demand for extraoral dental imaging in the global market.
The analog segment accounted largest revenue share in 2021. The analog devices are considered as traditional type of dental imaging devices. But now also many dental practitioners and doctors use analog devices over digital devices. This is due to the high cost of digital devices and not everyone can afford to buy. Therefore, analog devices are highly adopted in dental imaging market.
The digital segment is fastest growing segment of the dental imaging market in 2021. According to a poll done by the National Library of Medicine in 2015, 80% of patients of patients favored the digital method over the analog technique due to ease of operation, reduced breathing problems, and the concern of having to repeat the treatment.
