LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio projects the global dental curing lights market to exceed USD 197 million by 2022. The high prevalence of dental caries is a key driver, which is expected to impact market growth.
Dental caries, also called dental cavities or tooth decay, is a multifactorial microbial infectious disease that causes demineralization of the organic substance in the tooth. It is one of the most common oral diseases worldwide. Treatment involves the removal of decay and the resultant empty cavity of the tooth is filled with the composite resin material, and dental curing light is used for the polymerization of these resin-based composites. Hence, the high prevalence of dental caries will lead to increased demand for dental curing lights.

In this report, Technavio highlights the rise in demand for LED dental curing lights as one of the key emerging trends in the global dental curing lights market:
Rise in demand for LED dental curing lights
The idea of using LED in dentistry is influenced by its success in other industries. The first-generation LED units had very low output power generation capacity. The second generation took a great leap in dentistry, with the availability of one-watt chips with 16 emission areas (four main areas of illumination, each consisting of four bar-shaped emitting surfaces). The third generation has seen development over two broad forms. Firstly, the use of traditional gun-style light, which has a chipset fitted in the gun and uses the fiber optics to transmit the photons onto the target area. Secondly, use of pencil styled body, in which the chipset is placed directly at the distal tip end of the unit, which helps in shining the light directly on target. New generation LED curing lights are being launched in the market with more advanced features.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for orthopedics and medical devices research, “The energy consumption of LED dental curing lights is significantly less when compared to any other dental curing lights. Moreover, LED curing lights need less heat and do not require cooling fans, which further help reduce power consumption. The demand for LED dental curing lights is increasing due to these technological advances and advantages.”
