The global temperature monitoring system market size was USD 2.82 billion in 2023. The market is projected to grow from USD 3.20 billion in 2024 to USD 9.58 billion by 2032 at a CAGR of 14.7% during the forecast period.

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. Integration of artificial intelligence, cloud platforms, and digitalization has also revolutionized the field of temperature monitoring in recent years. Also, the usage of remote temperature monitoring devices has been witnessing a greater adoption in the past few years.

The COVID-19 pandemic positively impacted market growth during the pandemic. With the increasing cases of COVID-19 across the globe, temperature monitoring systems witnessed a robust surge in demand. The growing adoption of these products for time-to-time patient temperature management had majorly boosted the demand for these products.  Moreover, the increasing number of product launches further supported 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.

However, with the lowering cases of COVID-19, the market witnessed a slower growth in 2022, and 2023, and is expected to witness a steady growth over the forecast period.

Temperature Monitoring System Market Trends

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

The COVID-19 pandemic drastically changed the landscape of temperature monitoring devices with the very high demand for non-contact sensor-based thermometers to contain the spread of the virus. This was majorly due to the various advantages offered by these devices over others. 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, high incidence of Covid-19, along with social distancing norms boosted the use of these devices. 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.

Temperature Monitoring System Market Growth Factors

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 January 2021, Fitgo announced the launch of a new infrared thermometer in India and other countries. The device can be used for elders, infants and adults also.

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

With the high demand for thermometers, manufacturing companies are shifting their focus to the integration of advanced technologies and novel features in their products. The introduction of novel temperature monitoring products is expected to have a significant impact on the healthcare industry. Several advantages associated with these innovative products also support their increasing adoption. Some of these advantages include reduced response times, ease of usage, continuous monitoring, and others. 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.

Temperature Monitoring System Market Segmentation Analysis

By Product Analysis

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 2023. The strong position of the market segment is attributed to timely product approvals, along with the easy availability of technologically advanced products. 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.
