COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has majorly impacted the global dental market. During the initial phase of the pandemic, the imposed lockdown has negatively impacted the industry as routine dental care was not available because several dental practices were closed. Social distancing restrictions along with the mandate of wearing a face mask have hindered the dental industry across the globe.

Since dentistry is often considered a non-essential activity with high contact services, governments and other authorities decided to close all the dental offices or clinics during the pandemic. Due to this, the overall supply of these services and products was severely hampered during the pandemic. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic would hinder the overall growth of the clear aligners market.

Market Growth Factors:

Increase in the cases of dental problems

Dental problems are among the most common diseases across the globe. The cases of various dental and oral conditions like overbites, crooked teeth, underbites, spaces between teeth, crossbites, teeth overcrowding are increasing in the world. In addition, some dental diseases include dental caries, periodontal disease, temporomandibular disorders (TMD), and others, which are further creating a need for more advanced treatments and tools for fixing up the teeth.

High adoption and popularity of clear aligners among the population

There is an increase in the penetration of clear aligners among the population, which is estimated to fuel the growth of the clear aligners market in the upcoming years. In comparison to the traditional metal braces, clear aligners offer various benefits to the customers. Traditional metal braces are difficult to manage and restrict patients from eating their favorite food, which are motivating more people to adopt clear aligners over traditional braces since they are comfortable and flexible.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

High cost of clear aligners

Clear aligners are relatively high in cost than other conventional bracing methods. It is due to the advanced technologies used in making these aligners. People with any teeth deformities use these clear aligners as they are specially customized according to a person’s teeth imprints. A dentist recommends aligners for their benefits and thus, advises patients to opt for them. However, the high cost attached to these clear aligners would hinder its adoption in the market.
