Rising prevalence of tooth decay and periodontal diseases are some of the key factors driving the demand for dental curing lights. About 90 percent of young people in the United States have cavities. Favorable private health insurance is increasing demand for dental lights for costly procedures such as elective and cosmetic dentistry. Furthermore, the demand for dental lights and dental procedures is expected to be driven by rapidly growing geriatric population and dental problems associated with aging. Increased acceptance of dental care has reduced dental problems in developing countries, according to the World Health Organization.
The global dental light curing equipment market is driven by high incidence of dental diseases, increasing aging population, continuous advancement in dental light curing equipment technology which enhances its demand, and increasing investment in research and development lead to market growth. Currently, healthcare spending has increased in both developed and emerging countries, which is expected to create a competitive advantage for manufacturers to develop new and innovative dental light curing equipment and accessories. However, there are high costs associated with dental light equipment and a strict regulatory framework for dental light curing equipment.
The global curing lights for teeth market reached a large market size in 2020 and is expected to expand further in 2028 at a rapid revenue growth rate during the forecast period. Industry analysis shows that the demand for curing lights for teeth has been rising significantly and the adoption rate is increasing in parallel owing to favorable healthcare programs and government policies to introduce insurance for dental procedures. Moreover, market trends including steadily improving reimbursement scenarios are expected to drive revenue growth in the curing lights for teeth market.
The polymerization of light-curable resin-based materials is mainly done using curing light, which is an important part of the dental equipment used in the dental industry to polymerize light-curable resin composites. Dental procedures and specialties include the use of dental lights. Nearly all dental adhesives and resin composites are polymerized using light energy, ensuring the long-term clinical effectiveness of the procedure. Tooth decay, cavities, or dental caries is a common oral disease, often referred to as a dental infection.
North America accounted for a considerable revenue share in the global dental lights market, attributing to the widespread adoption of high-end dental procedures and well-established health insurance policies in countries in the region. Europe accounted for the second largest revenue share in the global dental lights market owing to improved healthcare processes, better healthcare policies, and high incidence of dental healthcare issues in countries in the region.
