(Forbes) Align Technology approaches near a $15 Billion market cap and what is likely to be their best year thus far – on track for over $1.3 billion in sales for 2017.  The company reported $310 million in sales for the first quarter of this year and $356 million for the second. 91 percent of their revenue comes from the 3D-printed clear aligners in their factory with dozens of high end 3D printers. The remainder of revenue comes from their iTero 3D Scanning system that lets dentists quickly scan and model a patient’s teeth.
Align estimates there are 10 million orthodontic cases each year, and that the Invisalign product is applicable to 6 million of those, meaning they have only 9 percent of those cases.This leaves plenty of room for growth.
