The market is growing positively, owing to the rise in infectious conditions, like swine flu and Ebola virus disease, and increase in demand for non-contact thermometers, as the use of infrared (IR) thermometers and non-contact thermometers were extremely useful for identifying the new cases of an outbreak caused by the coronavirus. Additionally, the growing pediatric population is responsible for driving market growth, globally. The factors, such as the flu outbreak, have a considerable effect on the market studied. In addition, the growing preference of a digital thermometer helps in giving more accurate and faster results, when compared to a mercury thermometer. Furthermore, it is safe, as mercury is a neurotoxic metal than can adversely affect the human body. Thus, owing to the above factors the market is expected to grow over the forecast period.
Key Market Trends
Oral Cavity Segment is is Expected to Hold a Major Market Share in the Body Temperature Monitoring Market
The oral cavity is found to be the most accessible and is highly believed to provide the best estimation of the core body temperature. The oral cavity is found to be the most common site for measuring body temperature, by local sensors. Eating and drinking may affect accuracy while measuring oral temperature. The thermometers are placed inside the mouth, under the tongue, and such readings can be inaccurate. The oral cavity temperature is measured by placing the thermometer posteriorly into the sublingual pocket, as it is very close to the sublingual arteries, which track the changes in the core body temperature.
The body temperature monitoring market is highly competitive and consists of several major players, indicating a fragmented market scenario. Although the market is quite fragmented in nature, there are some leading players, such as 3M Company, Welch Allyn Inc., Omron Corporation etc
