DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Europe Market Overview for Dental Lasers 2017 - MedView" report to their offering.
The dental laser market consists of two main segments: all tissue dental lasers and soft tissue dental lasers. The market for soft tissue lasers is further segmented into diode lasers, CO2 lasers and Nd:YAG lasers. The all tissue laser segment is also further segmented into fiber technology lasers, articulated arm lasers and direct delivery lasers; these lasers are ER:YAG or ER, CR:YSGG lasers which typically have a wavelength of 2,940 nm.
Among all segments in the dental laser market, the most promising is diode lasers. This is a significant amount of units sold as lasers are still considered as a luxury item by dentists, and therefore the installed base of diode lasers will increase considerably over the next decade. However, the growth rate for unit sales will remain in the low to moderate range throughout the forecast period.
The majority of dentists still see dental lasers as an unnecessary expenditure. Reimbursement policies such as the ones established in the Netherlands also contribute to the low level of demand by removing reimbursement payments from procedures performed with lasers.
Since diode lasers are a new technology relative to more traditional instruments such as the drill it is considered outside the scope of regular reimbursement schemes in most European countries, making usage costly for both the dentist and the patient. As dental lasers become more mainstream in dental offices and start to be considered by governments as a necessary part of dental procedures unit sales will improve and the market will grow at a faster pace.
Nevertheless, this transition will take a long time, which may pose a challenge to dental laser companies in the upcoming years.
