Global dental handpiece market is segmented on the basis of product types, speed of hand, application and geography. A dental handpiece is used to polish, remove tooth structures and shape teeth. The factors driving the market include the rise in aging population, oral diseases, and dental clinics. Dental handpiece comes across as an instrument using electricity or air for generating a rotary cutting motion, analogous to how a drill operates. Handpieces are often organized by speed range (low speed or high speed); which determines the best-suited applications.
Conventional high speed applications are inclusive of finishing restorations and cutting tooth structure whereas low speed handpieces have a plethora of applications inclusive of endodontics, caries removal, implantology and prophylaxis.
Air-driven high speed handpiece conventionally doesn’t exceed 400,000 rpms, whereas air-driven low speed handpiece generally operates at less than 40,000 rpms. Electric handpiece does offer the advantage of more torque, which could translate to reliable, smooth cutting ability all across a broad range of speeds.
Dental handpieces have adapted to new technologies to ensure higher efficiency to lessen time in removal of hard tissues and are substantially replacing conventional high-speed or low-speed handpieces in the market. These dental handpiece motor RPMs range between 100 and 400,000, with a constant torque for cutting through the hard tissues. Novel dental handpiece models have automatic reversing feature for endodontics procedures, owing to which these devices are now becoming more popular among dental practitioners seeking more flexibility in the entire functionality and reducing noise levels during operations.
However, high cost structure on the part of dental handpiece devices, heavy material, and the other conventional technologies such as laser along with brand loyalty are certain restraints with regards to the dental handpiece market. This adoption of new technology by dentists around the world is actually a value-based shift payment for providers of dental handpieces. Based on product types, the dental handpiece market is segmented into air-driven handpieces, electric handpieces, and hybrid air-electric handpieces and so on.
Based on speed of hand, the dental handpiece market is segmented into low-speed handpiece and high-speed handpiece. Based on application, the dental handpiece market is segmented into hospital, dental clinics, and ambulatory surgical centers, and so on. Based on geography, the dental handpiece market is segmented into Europe, Middle East & Africa, Latin America, North America and Asia Pacific.
The Americas are expected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period. This could be attributed to the rising aging population and prevalence of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure. The key players of dental handpiece industry are Danaher, Dentsply Sirona, NSK, Morita, A-Dec, W&H, Bien-Air, SciCan, DentlEZ, NOUVAG, Dentatus, KaVo Dental, Acteon, Inovadent and Being Foshan Medical Equipment.
