Clear Aligners Market Size

Clear Aligners Market size exceeded USD 6 billion in revenue in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at over 27.5% CAGR from 2023 to 2032, driven by the increasing prevalence of malocclusions.

Clear Aligners Market

Prevalent demand for aesthetic dentistry and the soaring interest in clear aligners as an orthodontic treatment approach is fueling the market progress. Aesthetic dentistry is gaining positive traction due to the rising disposable income and surge in consumer preference for custom clear aligners. In addition, several clinical studies indicate that malocclusion negatively impacts people’s satisfaction with physical appearance. Moreover, the availability of customizable orthodontic solutions, such as the Clarity Aligners Flex + Force, is driving product adoption.

High cost of clear aligners may restrain industry progression

The costliness of clear aligners therapy as an alternative to conventional braces may pose a threat to clear aligners market development. The average cost of clear aligner therapy in the U.S. is approximately USD 4,000 to USD 5,000; while the cost of clear aligners ranges from USD 1,200 to USD 1,600. Furthermore, in low- to middle-income countries, such high costs of treatment obstruct most patients from receiving treatment. However, the introduction of dental insurance in developed countries and feasible payment options are estimated to assist in mitigating the effects of these restraints.
