Growing Prevalence of Dental Problems Drives Germany Clear Aligners Market Growth
Cases of oral and dental issues are rising in Germany. Oral epidemiological data shows that dental caries and periodontal diseases are widespread in the country. Up to 80% of the population unknowingly have some form of gum disease. Characterized by a persistent bacterial infection surrounding a tooth or teeth, gum disease causes little discomfort and produces few overt symptoms in the early stages. Periodontitis is one of the most common oral diseases. If the periodontal disease persists and is left untreated, it can spread and compromise gums, teeth, and bone.
According to The Economist, around 30–40% of all teeth extraction processes in Germany are performed due to unchanged periodontitis. In Germany alone, 80% of all people over the age of 40 will sooner or later develop periodontitis. At the same time, populations are aging significantly. In Germany, according to deStatis, people aged 65 and above accounted for 22% of the population in 2018 (17.9 out of 81.2 million); it is expected to be 28% (21.8 out of 79.2 million) by 2030 and around 31% (23.2 out of 76.0 million) by 2040. As more teeth are preserved in this growing age group, the absolute number of teeth at risk for periodontitis increases. Germany also has a prevention-oriented healthcare system. Statutory health insurance pays for basic care, including regular check-ups, acute pain therapy, amalgam fillings, and tooth extractions.
Lifestyle related habits are propelling the incidence of dental caries and dental issues. Currently, various research studies are taking place, which are expected to create a competitive advantage for manufacturers to develop new and innovative clear aligners. This factor is expected to provide various opportunities for the clear aligner market in Germany during the forecast period.
Based on end user, the clear aligners market is segmented into hospitals, dental & orthodontic clinics, and others. The hospitals segment led the market in 2022 with a share of 58.63% and is expected to retain its dominance during the forecast period by holding 56.40% of the total market share by 2028. The market growth for the hospital segment is attributed to the increasing prevalence of orthodontic disorders and dental malocclusion, rising awareness about the aesthetic value of cosmetic dentistry, and increasing per capita income. Additionally, an increasing number of hospitals providing dental services in Germany such as Vivantes Hospital Group, University Hospital Rechts der Isar, Meoclinic Hospital, Helios Park Hospital, Helios Hospital, Solingen Municipal Hospital, and University Hospital Düsseldorf is expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period.
Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Germany Clear Aligners Market
Germany reported a decline in almost all businesses, particularly small businesses, due to COVID-19 pandemic. During COVID-19 pandemic, many dental procedures were delayed or cancelled due to imposed lockdown across Germany, which declined the demand for clear aligners.

Dental treatment with clear aligners requires less number of doctor visits than the traditional braces and wires, which propels the demand for clear aligners. After the measures taken by the government to sustain the virus, in 2021, dental practices in Germany started to operate regularly owing to the growing number of patient inflows, which is increasing demand for clear aligners. Thus, COVID-19 pandemic had a moderate effect on the Germany clear aligner market.
