CAD/CAM Manufacturers Are Trending Towards Open Architecture: U.S. Market Led by Sirona, Align Technology, and EnvisionTec

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) September 11, 2014

According to a report series by iData Research, the leading global authority in medical device, dental and pharmaceutical market research, the total U.S. CAD/CAM system market is expected to grow to over $300 million by 2020. CAD/CAM systems market includes full in-lab, standalone scanners and chairside systems. Market growth will be driven by the increase in demand by both consumers and dentists for all-ceramic restorations due to their superior aesthetic qualities, biocompatibility of ceramic materials and economical pricing.

Chairside systems are the fastest growing market, as more laboratories and dental offices are going digital, using CAD/CAM technologies, intra-oral digital impression-taking devices and rapid prototyping systems. This market is expected to experience double digit growth by 2020. “Chairside use is expected to increase further due to the new entry of glass ceramics blocks to the market and the reimbursement of resin materials at the same rate as ceramics,” says Dr. Kamran Zamanian, CEO of iData.

CAD/CAM manufacturers are trending towards open architecture, meaning that the software can be used in conjunction with any milling unit. Open architecture allows systems offered from different companies to inter-communicate. For example, 3Shape and Dental Wings only offer standalone scanner systems, but they are compatible with various milling systems such as Wieland Dental’s ZENOTEC™ and B&D Dental’s ORIGIN® for milling restorations. This trend is more visible among lower priced CAD/CAM systems such as Schütz Dental’s Tizan™, which offers an open architecture to operate with other systems.

One of the main trends driving the technological developments is the demand for more variety offered by CAD/CAM systems, such as versatility in materials used allowing for the option of using wax or composite material to mill a restoration. Another driving trend is giving laboratories the option of choosing how they want the restoration prepared. DENTSPLY for example, offers a number of ways to mill a dental restoration using their CAD/CAM technology.

Key leading manufacturers in this market are Sirona, Align Technology, and EnvisionTec. Other reputable competitors such as 3Shape, DENTSPLY, Nobel Biocare and Dental Wings, provide a diverse range of CAD/CAM products and related devices, including CAD/CAM blocks and prosthetics.
