Rising Adoption of Aesthetic Dentistry to Drive Growth
Although treatment of dental health problems does not come under Universal Health Coverage (UHC), it is a common belief that having perfect teeth provides social confidence. For instance, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) conducted an independent study, under which a group of people was interviewed. 99.7% of those people admitted that a smile is a social asset and is very important to the overall appearance. The increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry worldwide is estimated to drive the global dental CAD/CAM market growth. In addition, the rising adoption of digital dentistry and the increasing requirement for customized implants are projected to strengthen the demand for dental CAD/CAM.

High Cost Associated with the Process to Restrain Growth
As accurate and efficient as CAD/CAM software is, it still is an expensive matter. The high cost associated with the process is anticipated to restrain the market growth during the forecast period. On top of that, limited to no support from insurance companies and government-regulated healthcare bodies restricts people to opt for the procedure. This is expected to further hinder the demand for CAD/CAM.
The COVID-19 outbreak has adversely affected the dental industry. Since oral checkups are an intimate process and would have been a direct violation of social distancing norms at the time, a large population of patients had postponed or canceled their dentist appointment in the initial phase of the pandemic.
