The orthodontics market is witnessing several new technological advancements. With the advent of scanning and imaging tools, orthodontists can plan the treatment and design custom made braces for better results. Many players are now introducing new digital software for the custom made smile which, in turn, is encouraging people for orthodontic treatment.
“Increasing Burden of Teeth Malocclusion to Increase the Demand for Orthodontic Products.”
The rising prevalence of dental malocclusions worldwide is one of the primary reasons for the orthodontics market growth. Dental malocclusion is characterized as morphological variations that may or may not be associated with other diseases and pathological conditions. According to Align Technology, one of the major players in the orthodontic industry, there are around 12 million cases of dental misalignment and malocclusion across the globe seeking treatment, out of which approximately one-third of the cases are in Asia Pacific. Many public players have initiated prevention and awareness programs to address the increasing prevalence of dental malocclusions, which is expected to fuel the demand for orthodontic products.
Furthermore, the unmet needs of the patient population is another important factor which is poised to surge the market during the forecast period. Several major manufacturers and governments have started an initiative to fill the gaps in orthodontics treatment through partnerships and policies.
“Technological Advancements to Drive the Orthodontic Industry”
The emergence of dental 3D scanners and dental imaging has reduced the need for handwritten descriptions and aided in effective treatment planning with virtual images of the patient’s jaw, teeth, and mouth. The introduction of technologically advanced diagnostic tools by key manufacturers for the clinical diagnosis of oral health as well as the detection of misaligned teeth has enhanced the treatment quality of orthodontics. Furthermore, the integration of CAD/CAM & 3D technologies, IoT software, and AI-based technologies with orthodontic techniques to accurately treat the misaligned teeth of a patient is augmenting the market growth.
“Supplies Segment is estimated to generate Maximum Revenue.”
On the basis of product type, the global market can be segmented into supplies and instruments. The supplies segment accounted for the maximum market share in 2018 and is estimated to dominate the market throughout the forecast period. The rapid adoption of advanced orthodontic techniques, increasing penetration for clear aligners, the launch of new products, and a gradual shift towards cosmetic dentistry are the factors contributing to the expansion of the supplies segment.
The supplies segment is further classified into fixed and removable. The fixed sub-segment is again divided into brackets, bands & buccal tubes, archwires, and others. The use of dental scanners for orthodontic treatment and increasing uptake of dental services are projected to favor the demand for fixed supplies in the forecast duration. The removable sub-segment is further categorized into aligners, retainers, and others. The introduction of new products by key players such as the launch of Clarity clear aligners in May 2018 by 3M is anticipated to accelerate the growth of the removable segment in the overall market.

The dental clinics segment is anticipated to expand during 2019-2026 owing to the increase in a number of standalone clinics and private practices.
