(cid:26) Report predicts substantial growth of global orthodontic supplies market (cid:132) While North America and Europe are expected to have accounted for the largest share of the regional seg- ments in the global orthodontic sup- plies market in 2016, the Asia-Pacific market is projected to register the highest growth rate over the next five years, a new report by market specialist MarketsandMarkets has found. According to the research firm, the forces driving this development are growing efforts to increase awareness of advanced orthodontic treatments in the region and a very large patient population with maloc- clusion and jaw disorders. In addi- tion, growth is being stimulated through increasing disposable in- come, coupled with a growing mid- dle class and the stronger focus of global orthodontic and dental compa- nies on emerging Asia-Pacific coun- tries. Overall, the global orthodontic supplies market is expected to grow further at a compound annual growth rate of 8 per cent over the forecast pe- riod of 2016–2021 and is expected to reach US$4.71 billion by 2021. Among the three major product categories, fixed braces, removable braces and orthodontic adhesives, the fixed braces segment is expected to have gained the largest share in the global orthodontic supplies mar- ket in 2016. According to the ana- lysts, this is primarily attributed to the greater affordability (compared with removable braces) and increas- ing adoption of fixed braces among adolescents. According to the market review, the major competitors in the ortho- dontic supplies segment are 3M, Align Technology, Danaher Corpora- tion, Henry Schein, Dentsply Sirona, American Orthodontics, Rocky Moun- tain Orthodontics, G&H Orthodontics, Dentaurum and TP Orthodontics.
