Owing to its ability to print complex models using a wide range of materials, 3D printing has applications across various industries, including dental, aerospace, automotive, healthcare, food, fashion, mechanical engineering and other manufacturing industries.  In recent years, the adoption of 3D printers has risen at a commendable pace, specifically in the dental industry. This is primarily due to the increasing scope of inhouse dental 3D printing, growth in digital dentistry business and rise in the demand for 3D printed products. 3D printing in dental industry is an advanced solution which produces high quality and more accurate dental products (including, crown and bridges, dentures, surgical guides and dental implants). Moreover, the process of dental 3D printing is time saving and economical for both the patients and dentists. Driven by the growing prevalence of dental diseases and rising demand for high quality dental products, the dental 3D printing market is anticipated to witness a steady growth during the forecast period.

Key Market Insights

The Dental 3D Printing Market, 2023-2035: Distribution by Type of Printing Technology (Vat Polymerization Technology, Powder Bed Fusion Technology, Polyjet Technology, Metal Extrusion Technology and Other Technologies), Application Area (Prosthodontics, Orthodontics, Dental Implants and Other Applications), Type of Printing Material (Resins, Plastics, Metals, Ceramics and Other Materials) and Key Geographical Regions (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and North Africa, and Rest of the World): Industry Trends and Global Forecasts, 2023-2035 report features an extensive study of the current market landscape, market size and future opportunity for the companies involved in the field of dental 3D printing. The market report answers many key questions related to this industry.

Advantages of Dental 3D Printing

The conventional dental product manufacturing methods are fraught with several challenges, including poor quality and accuracy of dental products, time-consuming printing processes and high cost of dental products. Dental 3D printing offers more treatment choices for both patients and clinicians in economical prices, while increasing the quality of care and services provided to the patients.  Further, given that 3D printing is a digitalized process, the products manufactured using it can be easily customized (even the complex dental structures), and, therefore, offers more precise and accurate solutions for dental applications.    

Key Drivers in the Dental 3D Printing Market

Several factors, including growing incidence of dental caries and other dental diseases, challenges associated with conventional methods of dental product manufacturing and rising demand for cosmetic dentistry, have led to the high adoption of dental 3D printers. In November 2022, WHO published a global oral health status report and marked oral diseases as the most common non-communicable disease. In 2019, nearly 3.5 billion people worldwide were affected by oral diseases including dental caries, severe periodontal disease, edentulism (total tooth loss) and oral cancer. Dental caries alone had an estimated prevalence of 2 billion and edentulism had more than 350 million cases worldwide.  

Additionally, dental 3D printers can produce highly accurate restorations, orthodontic models, dentures, aligners, crowns, retainers, bridges, as well as surgical guides, from various types of materials, including resins, plastics, metals, ceramics and other materials. Over time, there have been improvements in the materials used for 3D printing and the speed of 3D printers, which are now capable of printing 4-5 dental crowns in less than 15 minutes. A number of technological advancements are also driving the market. In March 2024, UnionTech, a China-based company claiming to be an experienced global leader in stereolithography, launched a its new fully automated 3D printer EvoDent D300 at Dental South China. EvoDent D300 utilizes digital light processing (DLP) 3D-printing technology and is designed for large and medium-sized denture processing factories, targeting restoration and implant model applications. All these factors, along with globally rising geriatric population, will drive the market growth in the dental 3D printing industry during the forecast period.

Current Market Landscape of Dental 3D Printing

The current market landscape features around 230 dental 3D printers, manufactured by more than 75 players across the globe. The developer landscape features a mix of large, mid-sized and small companies, which claim to have the required expertise to offer dental 3D printers for use across different dental applications. Additionally, various recent developments aimed at revolutionizing the dental 3D printing industry with latest 3D printing technologies indicate that the printer manufacturers are upgrading their printer capabilities and infrastructure to accommodate the current and anticipated demand for dental 3D printed products. 

The digital 3D printer companies are collaborating in order to meet the unmet needs in the aesthetic dentistry market. In December 2022, Stratasys collaborated with 3Shape to introduce printing of dental models that accurately match tooth color of the patients. This has been made possible through the use of 3Shape’s intraoral scanner that can help the dental labs capture both color and geometric information of a patient’s mouth. Also, earlier in the year in March 2022, Dentsply Sirona had launched a Google Cloud integrated Primeprint 3D printer to allow the dental labs move towards digital dentistry. Launch of smaller, benchtop dental 3D printers which can provide an economical option for the dental labs are also under development. The companies developing dental 3D printers will have to continue to incorporate the latest technologies and accommodate the use of new materials in order to support the dental 3D printing market growth during the forecast period of this report.

Market Size of the Dental 3D Printing Market

Driven by the rising prevalence of dental diseases across the world and increasing adoption of the advanced dental 3D printing technologies, the dental 3D printing market is anticipated to grow at an annualized growth rate (CAGR) of 15.1% during the forecast period 2023-2035. The market size will mainly be driven by the keenness shown by the dental labs to adopt the technology, along with the support from the printer manufacturers who have not shown hesitation in accommodating the necessary technological evolution. As dental 3D printers become more affordable and their benefits are realized by the dentists across the globe, the market for dental 3D printing is bound to witness healthy growth.

North America Holds the Largest Share of the Dental 3D Printing Market

European market is also offering several opportunities for the companies operating in the dental 3d printing market.
