Although mature markets (such as the Brazil and Mexico) hold larger shares in the orthodontic supplies market, Chile is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. Factors such as the growing number of patients with malocclusions, decreasing trade barrier for medical devices in some Latin American countries, and rising disposable incomes in Brazil, Mexico, and Chile are propelling the growth of the Latin American orthodontic supplies market.

However, the removable braces market is estimated to grow at a high CAGR of 6.4% from 2015 to 2020. 

Geographically, Brazil commands the largest share of 30.0% the Latin American orthodontic supplies market in 2015, followed by Mexico.

However, its complicated tax and product approval systems, high cost of orthodontic treatment, and ongoing economic recession are hampering Brazil鈥檚 market growth. Chile is poised to grow at the highest CAGR of 6.3% in the market due to the healthcare and trade-related initiatives taken by the Chilean government to raise awareness and better economic landscape in Chile as compared to other countries.
