Dental 3D Printing Market to register a 9% CAGR from 2023 to 2031, expected to accumulate a Valuation of USD 2.9 billion: TMR Report


Advancements in dentistry and medical technology are encouraging uptake of 3D printing material. From ensuring comfortable surgical procedures to easing workflows, dental 3D printing is expected to yield massive gains

Wilmington, Delaware, United States, June 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global dental 3D printing market is expected to register a CAGR of around 9% from 2023 to 2031. By the end of the said forecast period, a valuation of US$ 2.9 billion is expected for the market. As of 2023, a valuation of over US$ 1.4 billion is expected as per the study. As the healthcare industry experiences major technological disruptions, the adoption of 3D printing is rising across a number of application areas, including dentistry.

3D printing, or additive manufacturing (AM), has become a fixture in dental offices and practices around the world. Dental 3D printing creates dental parts for dentists as tools or fixtures to print parts and for patients to use. These parts can range from models of teeth and dental aligners to full sets of dentures.

In the past, dental providers used scans, radiology, and teeth molds to obtain accurate images of patients’ teeth. These images were then used to construct special, tailored implants for the patient. With 3D printing, dental providers can create implants that are more specialized, enabling treatment of patients more rapidly.

Dental 3D printing materials are designed specifically for biocompatibility, aesthetics, and safety in dental applications. Certain resins are explicitly used for anatomical models and replicas (referred to as model resins). Others are designed for implants (draft and castable resins). Additionally, there are resins that are used for creating temporary dental appliances, resins that print clear for use in creating mouth guards, and resins that resemble gingiva for use with dental implants.
