    Market Dynamics


    Orthodontics is a specialized field of dentistry focused on diagnosing, preventing, and correcting issues related to misaligned teeth and jaws. Orthodontists use various techniques, such as braces, aligners, and retainers, to straighten teeth and improve a patient's bite and overall oral health.

    By addressing problems like crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, and gaps, orthodontics aims to enhance both the aesthetic appearance of a person's smile and their oral function. Treatment plans are tailored to each individual's unique needs, typically spanning several months to a few years. Orthodontics plays a crucial role in enhancing dental health and boosting self-esteem through improved dental aesthetics.

    Market Drivers

    In addition to being crucial for dental health, orthodontic treatment also enhances a person's overall look. The demand for items like braces, aligners, etc. is rising quickly due to the numerous therapeutic and aesthetic benefits. The number of patients seeking orthodontic treatment has increased as a result of increased awareness of dental malocclusion and improved diagnostic instruments that help with early detection. Additionally, during the projection period, the business is expected to be driven by a progressive move towards preventative oral care, rising equipment hygiene concerns, and attractive health reimbursement for the treatment of dental malocclusion.

    The industry for 3D-printed orthodontics is experiencing a tremendous increase in demand as the technology becomes more accessible and less expensive. Patients are increasingly turning to 3D printing as a more cost-effective and convenient alternative to traditional orthodontic procedures because they may be very expensive and time-consuming. Furthermore, because 3D-printed braces are made specifically for each patient's mouth, they are more comfortable to wear and produce greater outcomes.

    As healthcare costs rise, more and more people are seeking ways to reduce their medical expenses. For people who require orthodontic treatment but cannot afford the exorbitant cost of conventional solutions, 3D printing provides an excellent answer.

    In addition to this, there are now more possibilities for orthodontic therapy. Due to technological advancements, shorter and less invasive treatments are now possible and yet produce outstanding outcomes. This indicates that more people than ever before are open to trying orthodontics. In addition, the cost of orthodontic treatment has decreased significantly in recent years. Orthodontists may now provide patients with a greater selection of affordable treatment alternatives because of technological advancements.

    The rising prevalence of dental malocclusions around the world is one of the key factors propelling market expansion. Dental malocclusion morphological changes are those that might or might not be connected to other disorders and pathological conditions. According to Align Technology, one of the market's top rivals, 12 million people globally seek treatment for malocclusion and dental misalignment, with the Asia Pacific area accounting for around one-third of those cases. Many public actors have begun preventative and awareness efforts in response to the increased frequency of malocclusions, which is expected to increase product demand. The unmet demands of the patient population are another important factor that is projected to propel the market throughout the forecast period.

    Several investments/guidelines in the industry have been directed in recent years, which would boost the overall market. Some of them are:

    • The American Association of Orthodontists reports a 36% rise in people seeking orthodontic care in the last ten years. That number is only anticipated to increase as a result of new technologies and treatment alternatives.
    • Simply put, the fact that more individuals now aspire to have perfect teeth is one of the main factors contributing to the increased demand for orthodontics. The prevalence of social media means that consumers are continually exposed to pictures of influencers and celebrities with beautiful smiles. As a result, the number of persons seeking to accomplish comparable results has significantly increased.

    Recent Developments

    There is stiff competition in the orthodontics industry. The market offers a vast range of goods and services to suit various requirements and price ranges. Because of this, it is challenging for businesses to obtain a competitive edge by differentiating their goods. Due to the recent decline in insurance reimbursement rates, there are also significant pricing pressures. As a result, the average selling prices of several goods and services have decreased. Following are the key developments in the recent years:

    • In May 2021, A-dec and KaVo collaborated to offer premier products and world-class service to dental professionals around the globe
    • In June 2019, Envista Holdings Corporation is the name of the business Danaher plans to establish and go public which was revealed by Danaher Corporation.

These companies, which include names like Nobel Biocare, KaVo, Kerr, i-CAT, Dexis, Metrex, Pelton & Crane, Ormco, Implant Direct, and Orascoptic, hold major positions in the dental implant, orthodontic, equipment, and consumables industries
    • In January 2019, the Straumann Group partnered with Tianjin ZhengLi Technology Company Limited (ZhengLi Technology), whose clear-aligner system has regulatory approval in China, to accelerate its ambition to access the second-largest market for orthodontic clear aligners in the world. In order enter the highly desirable market, Straumann will use its excellent marketing, training, distribution, and service skills. Straumann gained exclusive distribution rights for their aligners in China. The two partners will work together to create improved cosmetic dental solutions.
