The global AI-based fever detection camera market size is USD1.28 billion by 2020 and is projected to reach USD 2.19 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.0% during the forecast period.

The worldwide surge in the growth of corona infected people has led to the emergence of advanced artificial intelligence-based fever detection cameras to monitor and detect human body temperature. Vaccine for coronavirus is still in its development stage and hence, the only way to reduce the spread of this pandemic is to isolate the infected person from the crowd. This type of camera is being considered as an efficient and effective device to identify a person with high temperature as fever is one of the symptoms of coronavirus. An individual with high temperature is further screened with virus-specific tests. Most of the airports, hospitals, factories, and other public places have deployed this camera to scan the crowd and protect the health of their employees and other people. For instance, in April 2020, Kogniz, Inc. launched an AI-based fever detection camera that can scan large groups or crowds to identify people having fever, so that they can be isolated.

The Proliferation of Temperature Detection Cameras at Crowded Places is a Prominent Trend

Since the coronavirus is spreading at a fast pace and the vaccine is still under the development stage, minimizing the infection rate by isolating the infected person is the only major step that can be taken as of now. AI-based fever detection cameras are playing a vital role in this situation by scanning and detecting people with high temperatures. These cameras are swiftly being deployed by transport authorities, governments, hospitals, and retailers around the world to scan and identify the person with high body temperature. Airports, in particular, are rapidly deploying these cameras as part of their screening measures for flight crews and passengers. These cameras can scan a crowd of around 1,500 people in an hour without depending on human interaction. It is a quick way to screen people with high temperatures so that they can be moved for further testing processes.

  • For instance, in May 2020, to control the spread of Covid-19 pandemic, Bournemouth Airport in the U.K. installed fever detection systems. This system scans people and notifies the security personnel if high-temperature is detected in any person. The person is further proceeded for screening by healthcare professionals.

By deploying these cameras, airports can safely conduct their business.


Rapid Spread of Coronavirus Across the World to Drive the Market Growth

The rapid spread of coronavirus along with the unavailability of vaccine is putting immense stress on the global health system. To reduce this stress to some extent, the tech companies have come up with AI-enabled fever detection cameras as fever is the earliest symptom of COVID-19. These cameras are designed to provide real-time updates of a person’s body temperature. Unlike the conventional thermal cameras, AI-powered fever cameras can detect a person within the crowd with high accuracy of temperature screening, sending an immediate alert automatically to the officials.

  • In April 2020, Agrex.ai, an Indian startup, developed a fever detection solution that can screen almost 100 people per minute. It uses AI, thermal camera processing, and face recognition technology for detecting fever.

Thus, the demand for these cameras to detect people with high temperature among the crowd has increased as coronavirus is spreading across the world.


Temperature Variance and Accuracy Issues Are Expected to Obstruct Growth

Although, some manufacturers claim camera detection accuracy to be as precise as 0.3°C, however, practically, this accuracy level is likely to be overinflated. The cameras used to detect temperatures are usually positioned perpendicular to the person. This reduces the possibility of an accurate reading, as the temperature of the side body gets measured, which typically has an inferior temperature reading. Furthermore, environmental factors heavily impact the temperature of the body.

  • For example, a person entering the airport from the outside environment is skewed by hot or cold temperatures. This may lead to an incorrect reading of a person’s temperature.

Beyond accuracy and temperature, variance issues and high cost associated with the AI-based fever detection cameras are obstructing some of the companies to shift from conventional cameras to advanced cameras.


By Type Analysis

Turret/Bullet Cameras Segment to Hold the Largest AI-based Fever Detection Camera Market Share

On the basis of type, the market is bifurcated into turret/bullet camera and handheld camera.

Among these camera types, the turret/bullet camera segment is estimated to hold the largest share as they prevent the risk and cost of employing staff with handheld devices at entrances to measure individual temperatures. These cameras are usually mounted on a wall and are mainly deployed in areas such as building entrances, airports, factories, and commercial facilities. These cameras can scan till 8-30 feet distance.

However, the handheld cameras segment is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR during the forecast period. These cameras can be connected to the PC and smartphones and can be used at a 3-6-feet distance. They can also be mounted on a tripod for portability.

Public Places Segment to Exhibit the Highest CAGR During Forecast Period

Based on end user, the market has been segmented into airports, hospitals, public places, enterprises/factories, banks, and others. Among these, the airports segment is estimated to hold the largest market share, whereas the public places segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period.

AI-based fever detection cameras are mainly employed in crowded places to identify the person with high temperatures. These cameras are capable of scanning people who enter with or without a mask. These devices speed up the processes at facilities and also notify the authorities if higher temperature person is recognized. They help the facility to isolate the person from the crowd. These cameras are expected to help businesses such as grocery stores and enterprises to operate their essential functions with minimum risk.
