Contactless Thermometer Market: Rise in prevalence of infectious diseases to drive the market

Contactless Thermometer Market: Introduction

  • The temperature of the human body can be measured in numerous ways. Earlier, body temperature was measured using contact thermometers that were placed on the forehead or in the mouth, ear, armpit, or rectum (in case of children).
  • An instrument capable of measuring the temperature of a surface from a distance, ranging from a few inches to a few feet, is called a contactless thermometer
  • The three major types of contactless thermometers are:
    • Non-contact infrared thermometers (NCITs)
    • Tympanic thermometers
    • Thermal scanners
  • NCITs are held approximately three to fifteen cm away from the patient’s forehead or temple in order to measure the body temperature
  • Tympanic thermometers measure the thermal radiation from the tympanic membrane and within the ear canal
  • Thermal scanners can be utilized to measure body temperature from a greater distance as compared to that of other non-contact thermometers. Hence, these can be used for mass screening purposes.

Key Drivers of Global Contactless Thermometer Market

  • Rise in prevalence of infectious diseases, such as COVID-19, is projected to increase the demand for contactless thermometer. Most people who suffer from COVID-19 experience mild to moderate symptoms, such as fever, and recover without special treatment. Thus, an increase in the need for screening tests in public places such as shopping malls, bus/train stations, airports, offices, and schools, to prevent COVID-19 spread has increased the demand for these devices.
  • Increase in awareness among people regarding contactless thermometers and life threatening disease outbreaks are anticipated to boost the global contactless thermometer market
  • Technological advancements in contactless thermometers are expected to boost the adoption these devices in emerging economies worldwide. This, in turn, is likely to fuel the global market in the next few years.
