Global Digital Impression Standalone Scanners Market 2016-2020
About Digital Impression Standalone Scanners
Digital impression standalone scanners are used to capture accurate digital impressions of the components of visible hard and soft tissues. They are used as a substitute for conventional elastomeric material (a polymer with viscoelasticity). These scanners use LEDs, lasers, or other optical sources to scan intraoral images to make 3D images of intraoral tissues and teeth with real clarity. This allows dentists to create restorations instantly, thereby speeding up the overall treatment.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global digital impression standalone scanners market to grow at a CAGR of 16.8% during the period 2016-2020.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Growing demand for cosmetic dentistry will be a key trend for market growth. Cosmetic dentistry is a clinical sub-specialty segment that focuses on improving individual's appearance through cosmetic treatments. There is an increasing acceptance of aesthetic procedures among women and men as they seek some dental treatments to make their appearance more youthful. Advances in cosmetic dentistry have led end-users to opt for various aesthetic procedures. Broken tooth, missing tooth, shaping, cleaning, and restructuring of teeth can be performed using cosmetic dentistry.”
According to the report, growing adoption of evidence-based dentistry will be a key driver for market growth. Dental associations rely on evidence-based dentistry to set up policies and protocols. It provides a definite approach to oral healthcare that follows a defined process of systematically collecting and analyzing scientific evidence to answer a specific clinical question. This evidence may help dentists in their routine clinical practice and will be helpful in developing a protocol that can make dental treatments more affordable. Dentists are adopting stringent controls and performance standards to evaluate new products and technologies, and also to generate robust data in clinical studies to standardize the dental care protocols. This will also increase the number of dentists and their treatments for a large number of oral care population.
Further, the report states that lack of reimbursement will be a challenge for the market. Reimbursement or insurance coverage is a primary factor influencing the global digital impression standalone scanners market. Reimbursement policies provide limited or no coverage for dental replacements and restorations, which limits the adoption of digital scanners. Reimbursements by the government or private insurance companies are limited or non-existent in developed countries such as the US, France, Germany, Germany, the UK, Italy, Spain, and Japan. This lack of proper reimbursements and high costs associated with the procedure hampers the growth of the market. Third-party payers also either do not reimburse customers or reduce reimbursement levels. This leads to reluctance to opt for expensive procedures like digital impression standalone scanning. Thus, the lack of adequate reimbursement policies is expected to have an adverse impact on the growth of the global digital impression standalone scanners market.
