Clear Aligners Market size is set to surpass USD 46.5 billion by 2030, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
Increasing number of elderly patients & rising geriatric population base is anticipated to drive the prevalence of malocclusions. Geriatric population is associated with the increasing frailty that refers to rise in the vulnerability resulting from aging-related functional degeneration in several physiological systems. Elderly population with increased frailty has notably poorer oral function as compared to normal individuals.
Furthermore, the risk associated with frailty is related to lower occlusal force and impaired malocclusion status. The American Dental Association, in 2021, quoted that the elderly population aged 65 years and above accounted for an increasingly significant portion of dental & orthodontic practice in the foreseeable future. Thus, the high susceptibility among elderly individuals is expected to spur the adoption rate of clear aligners to treat orthodontic conditions, including malocclusion among the diseased population.
