  • Growing incidence of malocclusion to propel market growth


The prevalence of malocclusion is on the rise, which is a major factor driving the growth of the orthodontic headgear market globally. Headgear is a form of orthodontic appliance that is primarily used to facilitate healthy jaw development and bite correction. There are many different kinds of headwear. In general, headgear is advised for kids whose jaw bones are still developing. One of the key aspects driving the growth and demand of the orthodontic headgear market is the rise of sophisticated painless operations, among many other important variables. One of the most prevalent dental issues that can be corrected with orthodontic headgear is malocclusion, or a bad bite. Orthodontic headgear can be used to treat crowded teeth, open bites, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. The demand for orthodontic headgear is therefore increased by the increasing in malocclusion prevalence. Thus, it is projected that this aspect will fuel the market for orthodontic headgear. For instance, the European Journal of Pediatric Dentistry revealed that there were no gender variations in the prevalence of malocclusion, which was 56% worldwide. The highest prevalence was found in Africa (81%), followed by Europe (72%), then America (53%), and Asia (48%). Thus, this factor is driving the market CAGR for orthodontic headgear.

Furthermore, it has been estimated that about 30% of healthcare spending goes into improving the infrastructure of the healthcare system, particularly the medical tools and software utilised in public health facilities like hospitals. As a result, the expansion of the market will be aided by the rising demand for orthodontic headgear in dental treatment as a result of the increase in healthcare spending around the world. Thus, it is anticipated that this aspect will accelerate orthodontic headgear market revenue globally.
