Dental devices include products used for diagnosis of dental ailments and for dental treatment such as oral prophylaxis, dental surgical and restorative procedures. Dental light cure equipment is tracked under this category. Dental curing lights are used for polymerization of light cure resin composites. GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to provide a comprehensive report on the dental light cure equipment market in Japan. Buy the latest report here.

In 2022, GlobalData’s Market Model methodology determined that the leading player in the dental light cure equipment market in Japan was 3M followed by American Ultraviolet, Dentsply Sirona, Henkel, Ivoclar Vivadent, Kerr and Ultradent Products.

Understanding market size can be crucial to evaluate opportunities and make informed decisions about market entry and exit. Medical device companies can identify attractive segments in respective markets as well as develop marketing strategies based on forecasts for those segments.

Dental curing lights can be used to cure a wide range of dental materials that are light curable. The light that is used ranges within the visible blue light spectrum. The wavelength of the light emitted varies from one device to another based on the need. Halogen curing lights, LED curing lights and plasma arc curing lights are tracked under this segment. The Tungsten halogen curing light, also known as simply “halogen curing lights” is the most frequent polymerization source used in dental offices. Dental LED curing lights use LED’s that produce a narrow spectrum of blue light in the -400 to -500 nm range (with a peak wavelength of about 460 nm) which is the useful energy range for activating the CPQ molecule most commonly used to initiate the photo-polymerization of dental monomers. Dental plasma curing lights are also referred to as plasma arc curing (PAC) lights and are used for curing resin-based composites and bleaching teeth.

The dental light cure equipment market in Japan can expand or contract due to a variety of reasons including population demographics, disease incidence and prevalence, macroeconomic issues, and geopolitical considerations. Disruption to a market could be caused by a sudden, unexpected change in these factors, but it could also be driven by changes in clinical practice, leading to a change in diagnosis or treatment of patients, as part of a process to generally improve medical practice.
