Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is widely used in dentistry and maxillofacial surgery due to its benefits over traditional techniques. Cone beam CT (CBCT) systems have many advantages over conventional CT for dental treatment and planning, such as lower radiation dose to patients in most cases, smaller acquisition times for the resolution needed in dentistry, a reasonable alternative to CT in terms of cost, and improved resolution with more details. A CBCT scanner extracts high-resolution images for one-tenth of the cost and an element of the radiation compared to conventional CT scanner.
Based on application, the global cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) market has been segmented into dental implants, orthodontics, oral surgery, endodontics, and general dental surgery. CBCT has more applications in dental implant procedures compared to others. The implant dentistry market has grown at a fast pace, driven by technological advances. Apart from substituting teeth lost due to injury, increased life expectancy and aesthetic concerns have enhanced the extensive acceptance of implantology. CBCT provides increased accuracy, higher resolution, reduced scan time, low radiation dose, and reduced cost for patients compared to conventional CT.
Geographically, the market has been studied and estimated for five regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Rest of the World. The CBCT market is driven by increasing demand for applications in dentistry across the globe. North America held the largest share of the CBCT market in 2014, followed by Europe. Asia Pacific was identified as the third largest market for CBCT in 2014. Demand has grown significantly in Asia due to rise in health care expenditures as well as disposable income of the population.
