Dental X-rays Market Overview
The global dental X-ray market was worth USD 1,892.6 million in 2021. It is projected to grow at an 8.7% compound annual growth rate, between 2023 and 2032.
The images of the teeth and surrounding structures are called dental X-rays. They are used to assess oral health. These images are captured using low levels of radiation. The market is growing because of the increased demand for dental X-rays and the rise in dental problems.
Global Dental X-rays Market Scope:
Product Type Analysis
In 2021, the analog segment accounted for 59.6% of all revenue. The market share will likely decrease over the next coming years. This slow growth is due to the requirement for numerous x-rays to obtain a decent image. Continuous exposure to radiation can also be blamed. This radiation exposure is higher than that of digital systems. The system poses a higher risk of radiation exposure than the digital systems. It also requires increased time and chemicals. Also, it is difficult to develop x-rays without the assistance of trained personnel. The digital market will see dramatic growth owing to technological advances, digital innovation, as well as the growth of businesses. The rapid adoption of digital sensors is expected to keep this segment in the market. The factors that have led to digital sensors’ increasing adoption are the lower operating times and high-quality imaging.
Market growth is being driven by the rapid adoption of Cosmetic Dentistry, and an eventual increase in radiography requirements. The market is also growing due to the expanding application of digital dental X-rays in diagnostics and therapeutics as well as forensics and cosmetics. However, poor reimbursement standards are believed to be hindering the adoption of radiography digital techniques and limiting their growth.
The largest revenue share, 52.5 %, was held by the intraoral X-rays in 2021. The intraoral x-rays can provide detailed images that allow dentists to treat decays and monitor the overall health of jawbones and teeth. The most common diagnostic method used in dentistry is intraoral radiology imaging. Intraoral imaging can be used for many processes such as diagnosis of caries and checking the location of endodontic files. The spatial and contrast resolution of intraoral x-rays will result in high growth.
Periapical radiographs have the main purpose of taking a picture of the root tip. This helps to picture the whole tooth as well as the other adjacent bones. Bitewing x-rays focus on the buccal surface and capture images of the mandibular and maxillary crowns. The occlusal scans give a greater view of both the maxilla & mandible and allow you to determine the extent and dislocation of fractures in both upper and lower jaws.
As they offer radiation protection, extraoral x-rays are expected to grow in popularity over the next few years. They are commonly used to diagnose larger disorders like temporomandibular disorders and wedged teeth.
In 2021, the medical segment accounted for the biggest revenue share at 61.3%. This is because it allows seeing the full degree and severity of certain diseases such as tumors, cavities, and fractures. Dental radiographs can be used to evaluate the degree of tooth decay and look for other oral problems like cysts and abscesses.
Over the forecast period, cosmetic dentistry will experience a significant increase in its revenue. The popularity of cosmetic dentistry is growing worldwide, leading to an increase in demand. This is due to an increase in cosmetic operations like teeth contouring and filling cavities.
Because they are often taken prior to any procedure in cosmetic dentistry, extraoral and intraoral radiographs are crucial. Intraoral x-rays, which are necessary to assess the roots of the teeth, are needed before any cosmetic procedure can be performed. Radiographs can be used to prepare onlay and inlay restorations. They help to estimate specific criteria like decay extent, periodontal support, tooth closeness to the nerve, and tooth proximity to the nerve.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 84.9% of children between 2 and 17 have been to a dentist at least once. Nearly 64.0% of adults between 18 and 64 years old and 65.6% of those 65 and older have also had at least one dental visit. Routine checkups include root canals and crowns. Regular dental checkups will be a key driver of the growing dental X-ray market.
Additionally, cosmetic procedures are becoming more popular due to increasing concerns about dental esthetics. This has led to an increase in demand for these procedures which has doubled over the past five years. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry conducted a 2018 survey and found that the main reason people choose cosmetic dentistry was to improve their self-esteem and physical beauty (86%), followed closely by health and restorative reasons (46%). The current trend is to present a flawless image on social media. This will help boost the market growth.
The key drivers of market growth are the rapid adoption of cosmetic dentistry and increasing dental disorders. Many technological advances have been made in the dental digital X-ray market. Cone-beam Computed Tomography System, (CBCT) is one such innovation. CBCT allows for 3-D, fast, accurate imaging of patients in order to diagnose dental problems. This system has overcome the pitfalls of traditional 2D X-ray imaging to aid precision studies and diagnoses of dental disease.
North America was the dominant market in 2021 with a 37.2% revenue share. This is due to its well-developed health infrastructure and increased expenditure on healthcare in developed countries like the United States. These systems are also more easily accessible because of favorable reimbursements for healthcare and increased government initiatives.
Europe was responsible for a large share of 2021’s total, due to its growing elderly population. Geriatrics are more susceptible to oral diseases. This is why the demand for dental x-rays in this population is high. The demand for these devices is also driven by the fact that oral diseases are more common among young people in Europe.
Over the forecast period, Asia Pacific will experience significant growth owing to the increasing awareness of oral problems in developing countries, which allows for rapid diagnosis and treatment. Another major driver of the market is China’s aging population. China and India are the two largest countries that produce and consume tobacco, while China has the lowest level of smoking awareness.
In countries such as China and India, the government is making extensive efforts to improve its healthcare infrastructure. This has allowed for the acceptance of new solutions for diagnosis and therapy. The market’s slow growth is due to the high costs of dental digital X-rays. These are the key factors anticipated to fuel the Dental X-Ray market.
