Sales Analysis of Dental Braces (2017-2021) in Comparison to Market Growth Forecasts (2022-2027)

The focus on dental health and hygiene has increased substantially over the past few years owing to the rising incidence of many dental disorders and their increasing occurrence among the general population.

Misaligned teeth, crooked teeth, and overcrowded teeth have been seen as non-aesthetic and increasing focus on aesthetic appearances has led to high demand for products that help consumers attain that aesthetically pleasing look. Dental braces are capable of aligning the teeth by continuous application of pressure ultimately leading to change in the shape of bone as desired.

Rising incidence of malocclusion, growing awareness about dental procedures, rising availability of several dental implants, increasing per capita disposable income, rising cases of dental trauma, and rising prevalence of jaw disorders are major factors that are anticipated to favor the dental braces market potential throughout the forecast period.

The rising popularity of Invisalign is expected to propel the demand for clear dental aligners and is projected to push dental brace suppliers to focus on the launch of new and customized aligners to increase their sales potential.

However, the lack of insurance policies that reimburse dental procedures and dental products is expected to restrain dental brace demand over the coming years. From 2022 to 2027, demand for dental braces is projected to rise at a stellar CAGR of 6.7%.

Which Factors are Majorly Driving Dental Brace Sales?

“Increasing Worldwide Prevalence of Dental Trauma”

Dental trauma has been witnessing an upward trend over the past few years and this is expected to be frequent over the forecast period as well. Dental trauma also leads to overbite, underbite, and cross bite which is expected to drive demand for dental retainers over the years to come.

“Lack of Reimbursement for Dental Treatment & Dental Implants”
