Dental radiometer, commonly is a simplified and less accurate laboratory equipment, used exclusively by the dentists to measure light output. Dental radiometers often provide dentists with a general benchmark but do not allow accurate measurement of amount of curing light. Also, dental radiometers are not wise tools to compare different types of light and their performance.
This is due to the ability of the detector present in a radiometer to detect only a portion of the output from curing light. Owing to the non-uniform nature of the output from curing lights, the light intensity varies significantly depending upon the portion tested. As the detector present in radiometer is not equally responsive to different wavelengths of light, dental radiometers show less sensitivity to some wavelengths of light over others.
Dental Radiometer are available in a wide range of wavelengths and offer high advantage over conventional radiometers. The main components of a dental radiometer includes the case, diffusers, filters, detectors, display. The readings on display may show a deflection of ±20% from the actual value. On the basis of product type, dental radiometer market is broadly categorized into three types including light emitting diodes (LED) radiometer, Quartz-Tungsten-Halogen (QTH) radiometer and Bluephase radiometer.
These radiometers are portable and simple to operate, yet offers various application that involves direct composite restoration, indirect ceramic restoration, curing of adhesive cements and others in the dental radiometer market. However, insufficient polymerization of the composites is usual reason leading to failures in placement of direct or indirect restorations.
Due to the incompletely cured restoratives, postoperative sensitivity is a common dental condition that even necessitates endodontic treatment. Hence, it is necessary to check the light strength of polymerization lights regularly, as the light power may drops over time. Bluephase radiometer with “polywave” broadband spectrum technology is capable of polymerization of light-curing dental materials in range of wavelengths 385-515 nm and forms significant component of dental radiometer market.
The rising demand for technologically advanced dental radiometer for dentists is expected to drive the revenue generation in global dental radiometer market. Some of the limiting factors hampering growth of dental radiometer market include lack of skilled manpower and technicians.
Safe applicable treatment with less time wastage during the treatment and being financially affordable with long term benefits are some of the key factors driving the growth of dental radiometer market. Increased availability of lightweight and ergonomic designs for dental radiometers, increased ability of radiometers to offer dual curing adhesive cements restoration are some other factors that are further boosting the demand for dental radiometer from dentists worldwide.
This led to increased revenue generation in dental radiometer market globally. Also, increasing footprint of local manufacturers and growing trend of establishing joint ventures with already existing market players is driving the revenue generation in global dental radiometer market. However, lack of skilled technicians and high costs associated with dental radiometer is expected to restrain the dental radiometer market growth.

Based on product type, Bluephase radiometers registers large revenue share in the dental radiometer market. Owing to the advanced innovations, increased portability and ease of handling, increased ability to polymerize lights of almost every wavelength, both the segments account for significant revenue share in dental radiometer market with bluephase radiometer being the leading segment in dental radiometer market over the coming years.
However, based on the application, dental radiometers find large application in direct composite restorations followed by indirect ceramic restoration.
On the basis of geography, global dental radiometer market is segmented into seven key regions viz. North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific excluding Japan, Japan, and Middle East & Africa. North America accounts for the largest revenue shares in the global dental radiometer market followed by Europe on the account of growing footprint of local manufacturers coupled with increasing merger and acquisition activities among already existing players.
However, Asia-Pacific is expected to register a moderate growth in dental radiometer market during the forecast period due to the increasing product innovation and rising adoption of advanced dental radiometers.
Some of the key players present in global Dental Radiometer market are DentAmerica, Dymax Corporation, First Medica, International Light Technologies Inc., Henry Schein, Inc., Kerr Corporation, Ivoclar Vivadent AG, Motion Dental Equipment Corp. and Others.
