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 thermometers includes measuring forehead temperature, ear temperature, or skin temperature. The temperature detecting element is made of 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 has led to a surge in demand for non-contact infrared sensor-based thermometers across the globe. Hence, to meet the potential demand for thermometers, several companies are opting inorganic strategic partnerships to manufacture digital infrared thermometers. For instance, in April 2020, Shoppemex announced the launch of its latest product, which is an infrared digital thermometer that can deliver ultra-fast body and surface temperature readings without contact.


Increasing Technological Advancements Associated with Temperature Monitoring Devices to Propel Market Growth

Increasing demand for temperature monitoring devices across the globe especially during the Covid-19 pandemic has augmented the growth of this market. Owing to growing demand for such devices, several companies have manufactured digital thermometers for precise and accurate body temperature measurement. 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 Several Temperature Monitoring Products to Propel Market Growth

The introduction of novel temperature monitoring products is expected to have a huge 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 contact-less thermometer developed in accordance with the requirements in the wake of Covid-19.  


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