The global COVID-19 impact has been unprecedented and staggering, with the temperature monitoring system witnessing a positive demand shock across all regions amid the pandemic. The sudden fall in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

A body temperature monitor is a medical device intended for checking and monitoring body temperature for adults and children aged two and above. Various forms of thermometers are used to monitor vital signs that include body temperature. Technological advancements in thermometers are expected to propel the growth of the temperature management market during the forecast period. Previously, thermometers were mainly controlled via manual measures, but temperature monitoring devices are more precise and easier to use with digital technology. With the increasing incidence of COVID-19 pandemic across the globe, temperature monitoring systems are witnessing a robust surge in demand. With the growing demand for digital thermometers, the market is forecasted to experience a lucrative growth rate across the analysis period.

Growing Demand for Products to Boost Market Growth amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to positively impact the thermometers market growth during the forecast period. The growing adoption of the products for time-to-time patient temperature management is majorly attributable to the increasing demand for the products.  Moreover, the increasing number of product launches will further support the market growth.

  • For instance, in May 2020, DetelPro announced the launch of an infrared thermometer in India. The thermometer is a digital monitoring system and helps to record temperature from a distance of 3-5 cm with an aim to avoid cross-infection.

Moreover, technological advancements, such as introduction of smart devices, are anticipated to surge the demand for the products during the forecast period.

  • For instance, in October 2020, Masimo launched Radius T Continuous Thermometer that enables continuous monitoring of the patient temperature.

Therefore, increasing product launch and growing prevalence of the infectious diseases, such as COVID-19, are anticipated to boost the market potential during the forecast period.

Increasing Demand for Non-Contact Sensor Based Thermometers to Drive Growth

Infrared sensors-based thermometers facilitate precise non-contact temperature measurement in healthcare applications. The primary form of applications for this type of thermometer includes measuring forehead temperature, ear temperature, or skin temperature. The temperature detecting element comprises numerous thermocouples on a silicon chip to measure an object's infrared energy.  Moreover, with the increasing cases of Covid-19, social distancing norms are strictly followed in several organizations and even in various residential societies. This factor has led to a surge in demand for non-contact infrared sensor-based thermometers across the globe. Thus, to meet the potential demand for thermometers, several companies opt for inorganic strategic partnerships to manufacture digital infrared thermometers. For instance, in April 2020, Shoppemex announced its latest product launch, an infrared digital thermometer that can deliver ultra-fast body and surface temperature readings without contact.


Increasing Technological Advancements in Temperature Monitoring Devices to Propel Market Growth

Increasing demand for temperature monitoring systems across the globe, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, has augmented the growth of this market. Several companies have manufactured digital thermometers for precise and accurate body temperature measurements due to the growing demand for such devices. These devices are incorporated with novel technologies to eliminate fluctuated readings and minimize errors coupled with better user handling facilities. Such developments are projected to hike the thermometers market during the forecast period. For instance, in February 2020, Xiaomi announced the launch of a new non-contact infrared thermometer. The device can take the temperature reading in just one second with a measuring accuracy of 0.2 degrees.

Launch of Cutting-edge Temperature Monitoring Products to Bolster Market Development

The introduction of novel temperature monitoring products is expected to have a significant impact on the healthcare industry. For instance, in May 2020, French brand ZOOOK, a pioneer in innovative consumer technology products, announced the launch of a contactless thermometer developed as per the requirements in the wake of COVID-19. These factors may drive the temperature monitoring system market growth.


High Contamination Risks Associated with Mercury-based Thermometers May Limit Growth

Despite the high demand for thermometers globally, certain factors are limiting the temperature management market growth. Among them is the risk of mercury poisoning from mercury-based thermometers.  The silver ball in the thermometer is very toxic to humans if the glass of the device breaks or is not cleaned correctly. Therefore, due to the high risk associated with the contact thermometers, individuals are less likely to adopt the contact thermometers, resulting in market growth limitations.

Digital Temperature Monitoring Devices Segment to Grow at Faster Pace

Based on product, the market is divided into digital temperature monitoring devices and analog temperature monitoring devices. The digital temperature monitoring devices segment marked the leading position in 2020. The strong position of the market segment is attributed to timely product approvals. Moreover, the surge in demand for devices amid the pandemic led to increased sales volume of the digital systems due to social-distance guidelines implemented to lower infection rates. Analog temperature monitoring devices are expected to grow and to witness slower growth than digital devices due to the shift of individuals toward the adoption of digital systems.

Additionally, the digital thermometer is anticipated to remain dominant during the forecast period registering a higher CAGR. For instance, in June 2020, DetelPro announced the launch of its digital thermometer. The company has launched this product to accelerate the penetration of digital thermometers to every household amid the pandemic.

By Type Analysis 

Non-Contact Thermometers to Show High CAGR Backed by Rising Partnerships

By type, the market is classified into contact and non-contact thermometers. The non-contact thermometer segment is expected to showcase a lucrative growth rate during the forecast period. This factor is due to the increasing number of partnerships among various companies to manufacture such devices. For instance, in May 2020, Segun Life, a well-known brand in healthcare devices and wearables, partnered with TCL to launch infrared digital thermometers to aid the battle against COVID-19 in India.

The contact-based thermometer segment is anticipated to exhibit significant growth across the forecast period, majorly due to the increasing prevalence of COVID-19 cases, leading to strict social distancing and home quarantine measures. Therefore, adopting thermometers for timely monitoring of the body temperature is likely to contribute to the segment's growth.
