Restraints: Lack of skilled dentists

More than 68% of World Health Organization Member States report having less than five dentists per 10,000 people. The operation of dental imaging equipment requires precision. This can be done with the help of skilled professionals. But there are low number of dentists all around the globe. As a result, the lack of skilled dentists is hindering the growth of the global dental imaging market. 

Opportunities: Growing prevalence of oral disorders

Oral disorders affect about 3.5 billion people globally, according to the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019, with cavities of permanent teeth being the most frequent. Caries of permanent teeth affect an estimated 2 billion individuals worldwide, whereas primary tooth caries affects 520 million children. In addition, the problems of oral cancer are also growing at a rapid pace. Thus, the growing prevalence of oral disorders is creating growth prospects for the global dental imaging market over the forecast period. 

Challenges: High cost of dental imaging devices

Some dental imaging devices are quite expensive in nature. Digital dental imaging is quite costly as compared to traditional dental imaging equipment. The general expense of dental imaging is around $840 - $880. Every hospital and dental clinic cannot afford the high expense of dental imaging devices and gadgets. As a result, the high cost of dental imaging devices is a major challenge to the growth of the global dental imaging market.
