The intraoral camera market is highly competitive, as both major dental imaging companies and camera manufacturers participate in the market. With an intensifying competitive landscape, intraoral cameras are becoming more compact, improving technological capabilities and declining prices. Intraoral cameras are available in two forms: they can be attached to delivery units or they can be standalone devices. The vast majority of intraoral cameras that are sold have digital technology, as the traditional analog versions are quickly becoming obsolete. The majority of digital intraoral cameras are attached to imaging monitors through a USB cable connection, and a smaller portion operates with wireless capabilities. Practitioners with limited capital upgrade budgets have shown a preference for spending on equipment with a high return on investment over the short term. Technological equipment such as the intraoral camera fits into this category. Patient demand for premium quality and evidence-based treatment is driving this demand trend and this has caused the unit sales of intraoral cameras to experience steady growth. It is also expected that as more technological advancements are made to these devices in terms of their ergonomics, image quality and illumination, prices will increase.
