COVID-19 Impact:

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every aspect of life and business. It has emerged as a global pandemic that has affected almost all countries across the globe and disrupted various business functions around the world. Likewise, the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected the global digital dentistry market. CAD/CAM scanners for intraoral scanning were not used by the dentist as they avoid close contact with patients during the pandemic.

Elective dental procedures were postponed during the peak months of the pandemic. As a result, a decrease in the manufacturers' capacity to sell CAD/CAM blocks and discs was observed during this period which result in a loss in market revenue. The leading player in the dental market has witnessed a decline of about -16% in the revenue generated from digital dentistry in the financial year 2020, as compared to 2019.

However, after the pandemic, the implementation of several safety measures for dental treatments and advancement in CAD/CAM technologies is anticipated to boost the market during the forecast period.
