Factors Driving Orthodontics Treatment Market

Rising Demand Among Teens and Children: Around 60-75% of the total global population is currently suffering from malocclusion or misaligned teeth, per a Cision Report.

This indicates how children and teenagers dominate the global orthodontic market.

Per Markets and Markets, the global cosmetic dentistry is expected to make $22.36 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 6.8% during 2015-2020. Moreover, an increase in disposable income gives rise to a higher demand for cosmetic dental surgeries.

Orthodontic Treatment Spreads in Emerging Economies: Growth within the orthodontics market has been primarily led by rising focus of vendors on emerging markets, such as Asia-Pacific and LAMEA.  Some of the key developing nations, which have been witnessing increasing use of orthodontics products, are China, India, Brazil, and Mexico.
