Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Invisible Orthodontics Market in China 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the invisible orthodontics market in China: 3M, Align Technology, Angel Align, ClearCorrect, Ormco, and TC Medical.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: American Orthodontics Shanghai, Astar Orthodontics, eClear International, Hangzhou DTC Medical Apparatus, Hangzhou Headway medical equipment, Hangzhou NanXi Dental Medical Equipment¸ Henghui Technologies, Ivoclar Vivadent, Riton Biomaterial, Shanghai Smedent Medical Instrument, Sino Ortho, Southern Cross Dental Laboratories, TP Orthodontics, and ZZ Dental Appliance.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Researchers are using nanoparticles to develop next-generation invisible orthodontics. This will be a key trend for market growth. For instance, researchers in the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain, have developed nanoparticles for developing invisible orthodontic braces. These particles help increase the mechanical and friction resistance, maintaining the transparency of the invisible orthodontic braces. Researchers also used polysulfone due to its biocompatible and ability to improve rigidity and friction resistance for developing invisible orthodontic braces. Similarly, in November 2012, Euro Ortodoncia, a Spain-based orthodontic materials manufacturer, collaborated with researchers at the university to develop nanotechnology-based invisible orthodontic braces that can help reduce the friction between the teeth and braces and provide additional comfort to people using these braces.”

According to the report, many companies are adopting CAD/CAM technology to develop invisible orthodontic products and it will be a key driver for market growth. This technology helps measure and analyze invisible orthodontic force in the lingual direction. Its 3D technology helps construct the size and shape of the braces. The popularity of this technology has being increasing, particularly among dentists and dental laboratories. The technology helps develop customized invisible orthodontic braces. It also allows dentists to provide improved treatment options that are more accurate and predictable compared with traditional oral treatments. It uses a 3D custom image to draw and design the final restoration, which helps make them stronger compared with the earlier milled tooth structures.

Further, the report states that use of counterfeit orthodontic braces among teenagers will be a challenge for the market. Branded invisible orthodontic braces are expensive, which led to development and availability of counterfeit products that are less expensive. Most of the fashion-conscious teenagers use counterfeit products, as they are more affordable compared with branded ones. For instance, counterfeit braces cost about $1,100 while that of branded one's cost about $5,000. The use of these counterfeit products can cause various complications, as they are implanted mostly by untrained professionals. This can further lead to health consequences. In spite of this, China has no stringent regulations governing the use of counterfeit invisible orthodontic products. Low awareness levels about the implications of using counterfeit products has led to their use among teenagers.
