The global cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) market size is estimated to be US$ 805.3 million in 2021 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 10.2 % from 2021 to 2028. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) system is a type of medical imaging technique of X-ray computed tomography that provides 3-D views for a more thorough analysis of the bone structure and tooth orientation. CBCT is mostly used in Dental implants and other areas like Orthopaedics, Interventional radiology, oral surgery, ENT, and in certain types of X-ray imaging processes. During radiographic imaging system, various parameters are needed to be considered which are precise for CBCT imaging includes X-ray generation, X-ray attenuation by an object, detection of the signal, image processing, and image display.
The rising geriatric population and their uncontrollable medical needs lead to a rising global cone beam computed tomography market. Over the last years, demand for CBCT technology has risen steeply due to the increasing affordability of advanced computers equipped with CBCT units. CBCT imaging equipment manufacturers are working on various characteristics to improve the imaging application by making the equipment cost-effective and efficient, by making even small scanners and ability to scan the patients in an upright position using flat-panel detectors. CBCT applications are useful in many aspects of dental disciplines which include jaw tumors, dental abnormality, prosthodontic evaluations, vertical root fractures, and implant dental evaluations. Furthermore, image-related issues such as lack of clarity and the high cost of the devices are expected to impede market growth.
North America dominates the largest share of more than 45 % due to the preventive approach towards dental hygiene, availability to independent clinics, and growing R&D activities in digital imaging. Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period pertaining to the increasing number of clinics, growing R&D activities, and rising awareness about dental care. In the Asia Pacific, the healthcare infrastructure is growing with technological advancements. The government of several countries like India and China is increasing awareness about oral care and hygiene.
