Some key players operating in this market are Align Technology, Inc., Institut Straumann AG, Danaher Corporation, Dentsply Sirona, Clarus, and 3M, among others.


Align Technology, Inc. is one of the leading players in the field of clear aligners. The firm accounted for over 81.8% share in 2017.

The firm has its direct sales and support organizations in North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Brazil, and certain countries in the Middle East and Africa. Additionally, the firm has focused primarily on research and development to provide the next generation of products and platforms.


Institut Straumann AG accounted for the second largest spot with 3.1% of the market share. The firm has a huge geographic presence due to its extensive growth strategies such as acquisitions and mergers.
