Growing Cases of Oral Cancer is Boosting the Growth of Europe Dental Radiography Equipment Market
Oral cancer is ranked the sixth most common cancer in the UK, with ~4,900 new cases reported every year.According to the State of Mouth Cancer UK Report 2021, ~8,722 people in the UK were diagnosed with oral cancer in 2020.
Oral cancer accounts for more than 2% of all cancer types.The same statistics suggest that men are more likely to suffer from oral cancer than women.
Also, the prevalence of this cancer type is strongly associated with age. 78% of new oral cancer cases are reported in people aged 55 years and above. The data also showed that mouth cancer cases have risen by 58% over the last decade and 97% over the last 20 years. Further, the prevalence of oral cancer is higher in Wales compared to the rest of the UK. According to stats by gpcpd.com, 300 new oral cancer cases are diagnosed in Wales every year.
According to Cancer Focus Northern Ireland, 2020, oral cancer cases in Northern Ireland are predicted to double during 2015–2035 due to a rise in oral cancer incidence and a surge in the aging population.Cross-sectional imaging has become the foundation in the pretreatment evaluation of oral cancer, as it provides accurate information about the extent and spread of the disease that can help decide the appropriate management strategy and indicate prognosis.
Thus, the rising prevalence of oral cancer drives the demand for radiographs, also referred to as x-rays, which boosts the Europe dental radiography equipment market .
The Europe dental radiography equipment market includes the consolidated markets for Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Spain, and the Rest of Europe.Italy holds the second-largest position in the European dental radiography equipment market and is estimated to mark significant growth in the coming future.
The market’s growth is attributed to various factors, including government efforts to expand dental coverage, rise in the prevalence of dental caries, and increase in cases of oral diseases.The rate of aging is high among the German population.
According to Statista, in 2022, 23 million people in Germany were aged between 40–59 years, making it the largest age group in Germany. Sixty-five years and above has been stated as the next largest age group, with 18.44 million people belonging to this group. As per the same Statista study, there were ~98,604 dentists in the country in 2019; of these, ~72,600 were actively employed compared to 63,300 in 2000. A surge in the volume of dental diseases can be directly associated with the ever-increasing number of older adults, triggering the demand for dental services. The rising GDP triggers the adoption of dental radiography equipment in the healthcare sector, while the growing service coverage boosts the demand for the procedure among people, thereby favoring the growth of the dental radiography equipment market in Germany.
