The digital orthodontics market is evaluated at US$2,036.877 million in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 14.09% to reach US$5,110.349 million in 2027.

Digital Orthodontics refers to the application of conventional orthodontics through digital mediums. The treatment involves the use of advanced orthodontics technology that helps adults and kids in straightening their teeth with absolute precision in less time. It also helps orthodontists in formulating a treatment plan and executing the plan based on digital platforms. Digital dental treatments are more effective and aid dentists in saving time by facilitating shortened treatment procedures. Digital orthodontics enables orthodontists in taking measurements, clear aligners, wires, and retainers using appliances built on digital ecosystems. CAD/CAM platforms are being used in orthodontic treatments as they employ digital scans to fabricate custom wires and plastic aligners to treat patients. However, desktop 3D printing is the latest market trend driving the orthodontics market as the 3D perspective provides better visualization of the precise positioning of teeth in addition to evaluating affected teeth. Moreover, similar changing market trends and rising trends of digitalization are expected to drive demand in the digital orthodontics market. Moreover, the growing presence of companies offering digital orthodontic solutions is further increasing market attractiveness. Growing market players and increasing market developments are expected to further drive demand in the digital orthodontics market over the forecasted period. Furthermore, shorter waiting times and the cost-effective nature and convenience associated with the digital orthodontics market are estimated to further boost demand. However, a lack of trained dentists and limiting interoperability between systems may hamper growth in the digital orthodontics market.

The 3D Printer segment shows promising growth.

The 3D printer's product segment is expected to hold a notable market share and is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecasted period. The market growth can be associated with growing digitalization coupled with superior benefits over traditional workflow processes. Moreover, wider applicability across orthodontic applications is further estimated to drive demand over the forecasted period.

Intraoral Scanners are also expected to grow owing to novel launches. For example, Dentsply Sirona, the largest manufacturer of professional dental products and technologies in the world, launched new products and solutions which are part of its digital universe in September 2022. The prime highlight of this new launch is the laptop-based version of Primescan called Pirmescan Connect, an intraoral scanner that is powered by cloud platform DS Core and it offers a highly connective 3D scanning technology. This new launch by Dentsply Sirona is designed to bring dentistry to a new level.

Clinic End-User Segment to hold a significant market share.

The Clinic end-user segment is expected to hold a notable market share and is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecasted period. Increasing investments for the development of a large dental clinic chain coupled with a growing number of trained medical professionals are expected to drive the demand in the digital orthodontics market. Furthermore, growing strategic partnerships within the segment and increasing demand for dental medical tourism are expected to augment growth over the forecasted period.

Key Developments

  • In September 2022, 3Shape A/S launched new TRIOS 5 Wireless Intraoral Scanners in the market that offers an extraordinary level of scanning simplicity claims the company. This new breakthrough device launched by 3Shape has an FDA-cleared, closed autoclavable scanner tip that is protected by scratch-free sapphire glass which allows a new level of hygiene. Additionally, the TRIOS 5 offers the ScanAssist engine, which features intelligent-alignment technology for effortless scanning and it is 30% more compact. 
  • In February 2021, Align Technology, Inc. announced the availability of the iTero Element Plus Series of scanners and imaging systems which includes new solutions to serve a broader range of dental markets. The company claims the new series is built on the successful iTero Element family, hence it offers all existing orthodontic digital capabilities along with advanced visualization capabilities and faster processing.  

North American region is expected to hold a dominant market share.

The North American region holds a prominent market share over the forecasted period. The growing adoption of technologically advanced solutions such as oral scanners and 3D printing in the region is expected to drive demand in the digital orthodontics market. Moreover, increasing investments in the region coupled with the emergence of new market players and start-ups are anticipated to augment the demand in the market over the forecasted period. Furthermore, the Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at a significant rate owing to the growing demand for digital orthodontics solutions in emerging economies like India, and China.

COVID-19 Impact on the Digital Orthodontics Market

The COVID-19 pandemic slowed the growth of the digital orthodontic market as a large number of clinics were shut down due to the spread of the virus-induced lockdown and movement restrictions. Further, The Orthodontists were able to minimize clinic visits through a combination of in-person and virtual consultation, resulting in reduced in-person contact and increasing the use of digital orthodontic solutions. Further, the pandemic pushed the orthodontic industry further toward digital space, which made this technique a more viable option during the pandemic.
