CAD/CAM Dental Systems - Global Pipeline Analysis, Competitive Landscape and Market Forecast to 2017

London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 12, 2011 -- The global CAD (Computer Aided Design)/CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) dental systems market is forecast to reach $755m by 2017, recording a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 8% between 2010-2017. CAD/CAM dental systems are used to fabricate accurate, superior quality dental prostheses, which have a aesthetic value. An increasing number of dental laboratories are adopting CAD/CAM dental systems, which combined with increasing demand for aesthetically superior dental restorations, is expected to contribute to the growth of the CAD/CAM dental systems market.

CAD/CAM dental systems are used to fabricate accurate, superior quality dental prostheses in a short time. Prostheses made using CAD/CAM dental systems, fit perfectly to patients with negligible error, thereby reducing the likelihood of infection. The near perfect fit of CAD/CAM dental implants, means less manipulation of the surrounding soft tissue thus reducing patient trauma and resulting in faster recovery time. The remake rate with CAD/CAM dental systems is low, at 0.4- 1%, whereas with traditional methods the remake rate is high, due to the high human involvement in the various stages, including impression making, model and die pouring, and laboratory procedures. This low remake rate shortens the overall procedure time. CAD/CAM dental systems use a variety of materials, such as ceramic, titanium, and alumina in the fabrication of prostheses. Ceramic restorations are superior in quality and have high aesthetic value. The Procera system by Nobel Biocare, allows for the production of abutments and crowns, using sintered alumina and zirconia. New innovative products are increasing the quality and accuracy of the restoration process. For instance, IPS Empress CAD is a glass ceramic intended for aesthetic tooth-borne restorations, designed with flexural strength of 160 MPa.

The US accounted for 41% of the global CAD/CAM dental systems market in 2009 and is forecast to reach $292.6m in 2017, achieving a CAGR of 7% over the 2010-2017 period. The market will mainly be driven by rapid technological advancements in the field of CAD/CAM dentistry. All the major players in CAD/CAM dental systems have a presence in the US market. In the US, there is increasing demand for technologically advanced CAD/CAM dental systems, which make the dental restoration process more accurate, fast and user friendly. In the US, due to increasing awareness, dentists and dental laboratories have increasingly started to adopt CAD/CAM dental systems.
