Market Overview:

The global dental retainers market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing awareness about oral health and the rising demand for cosmetic dentistry procedures. In addition, the growing geriatric population is also contributing to the growth of this market. The metal dental retainers segment is expected to dominate the global dental retainers market during the forecast period, owing to their durability and affordability. However, polymer materials are expected to grow at a higher CAGR than other segments during the forecast period, as they are more aesthetically pleasing and comfortable than other materials used in dental retainers. Geographically, North America dominates the global dental retainers market due to high disposable income levels and rising demand for cosmetic dentistry procedures in this region.

Global Dental Retainers Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A dental retainer is a custom-made device used to keep teeth in place after orthodontic treatment. It is usually made of plastic or metal and fits over the upper and/or lower teeth.


Metal is a strong, rigid material that has limited use in dental applications. It can be classified as non-corrosive and corrosive based on the chemical properties of metals. The most common metal used for dental applications is stainless steel which has high corrosion resistance due to chromium and nickel added during production. Stainless steel is not suitable for immediate retention because of its low strength but it can be used with cemented or unfilled retainers made from plastics or composites.


Ceramics is a group of solid materials that are resistant to chemical attacks such as solvents, acids and bases. The most common types of ceramics include alumina, zirconia (TZP), silica (quartz), and titania-based products. These are used in dental retainers owing to their high strength which helps avoid tooth fractures during extractions or removals.

Application Insights:

Adults held the largest share of more than 60.0% in 2017. The rising geriatric population is one of the major factors driving this segment. As per United Nations, there will be approximately 1 billion people aged 60 or above by 2030, globally which in turn is expected to boost product demand over the forecast period.

The kids application segment was valued at USD 281 million in 2017 and is anticipated to witness a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing incidences of tooth decay among children as well as teens due to improper dental care habits followed traditionally throughout their lifetimes but especially during their teenage years up until adulthood when they should have developed good oral hygiene practices having been constantly encouraged by parents and other caregivers about maintaining good dental health since childhood would have made a big difference with proper instruction on how bestto brush.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The presence of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure, high awareness among people about oral health, and favorable reimbursement policies are some of the major factors responsible for its large share. Moreover, growing demand for dental retainers that help patients recover their lost chewing ability after surgery is expected to drive this regional market further.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period owing to increasing geriatric population and rising disposable income coupled with improving healthcare facilities in emerging economies such as India and China. In addition, an increase in medical tourism due to affordable treatment options will also boost industry growth during the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing awareness about the benefits of dental retainers among consumers.
  • Rising demand for custom-made dental retainers from consumers.
  • Growing number of dentists recommending dental retainers to patients.
  • Increasing adoption of dental retainer products by young adults and teenagers.
  • Proliferation of online retail platforms offering a wide range of dental retainer products at competitive prices
