Digital impression standalone scanners have uses in intraoral and dental health. The technology is used to develop a three-dimensional (3D) image, which is needed prior to a many different dental treatments such as bridges, inlays, dentures, and orthodontic treatments, and onlays. Digital impression technology offers a host of benefits over traditional impression methodologies, which favors the development of this market. Employing digital impression, the painful and tedious procedure of elastomeric impression needed for dental applications is eliminated.


Using digital impression technology, scanning of the oral area is both systematic and easy, making the treatment a relatively easy task for the dentist and the patient. Due to this, errors that are related with human handling are also reduced considerably, because of which examinations and scans do not require frequent visits to the dentist’s office. In addition, diminishing costs and development of powder-free intraoral scanners will benefit the global market for digital impression standalone scanners to a high degree. However, the market is subject to the challenges of inadequate technical expertise and high initial set-up cost, among others, which are slowing the growth of this market.


The report divides the global market for digital impression standalone scanners on the basis of technology and geography. Optical wand and confocal microscopic imaging are the technology segments of this market. Of the two, in 2013, scanners with optical wand technology were widely used, which led the segment to contribute a higher revenue share to the global market. Compactness in size and cost-effectiveness are the reasons for the larger market share of the optical wand technology segment.


On the other hand, scanners with confocal microscopic imaging technology have their own distinct advantages. These devices offer powder-free scanning, wherein the device can move ahead with the procedure without the need to keep a specified distance between the teeth and scanner. This makes dental treatments less restrictive, which will be support the confocal microscopic imaging technology segment to increase its market share in the coming years.


Geography-wise, Europe is the largest market and accounted for a share of 39.3% in the global market for digital impression standalone scanners in 2013. Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as a significant market during the forecast horizon. Japan will contribute significantly to the market’s revenue due to the high awareness about oral health and a growing geriatric population.
