The global dental equipment market is poised to reach nearly USD 8.5 billion by 2020. The industry is driven by high incidence of dental infections & diseases. Unhealthy eating habits and rising consumption of junk foods, alcohol, chocolates, and tobacco are factors that propel demand for dental equipment. The industry is led by technological innovations that lead to simplicity & cost effectiveness. Rising cases of periodontal diseases and dental caries could propel the market for tooth implantations over the forecast period (2012 to 2020). Demand for dental radiology equipment may also increase significantly during this time because of enhanced quality and higher efficiency.
Other global industry drivers are availability of sophisticated technologies, growing geriatric population, and growing cases of tooth loss. Medical tourism too may positively influence the overall industry. The dental equipment market in most emerging economies could witness robust growth in the forthcoming years. This attributes to greater consciousness among the masses about the significance of dental health & hygiene. However, high costs of sophisticated technologies in dentistry and surging demand for refurbished dental equipment are factors that hinder industry growth.

In December 2016, DenMat launched the VisiLite Pro, an oral lesion screening device that is based on light based fluorescence technology. This system helps detect epithelial dysplasia in its early stages. Dentists can effectively incorporate this system into the conventional neck and head exam in order to rule out oral cancer. Fluorescence visualization offers entirely new visual information which is quite different from what doctors get while looking at reflected lights from chemiluminescent or white light sources.
