Published Date : Feb 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global Thermometer market size is expected to be worth around US$ 2.40 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Thermometer market size was valued at US$ 1.21 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 8.8% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

An increase in the demand for accurate medical devices and the requirement of specific temperature conditions influence the market growth.

The rising cases of medical ailments involving accurate measurement of body temperature for the treatment planning and requirement of specific temperature conditions in various industries are likely to heighten the demand for thermometers during the forecast period. The rise in health consciousness, coupled with an increase in healthcare expenditure, is also anticipated to fuel market growth further in the coming decade.

The increasing prevalence of target diseases, such as malaria, dengue, typhoid, and swine flu, which cause fever, is anticipated to be a high-impact rendering driver of the market. Malaria is one of the most fatal diseases and is one of the leading causes of death globally. According to the World Malaria Report 2019, an estimated 229 million cases of malaria were observed in 2019 globally.

Furthermore, rapid technological advancements in temperature monitoring devices are increasing the acceptance of these devices by people. For instance, in 2018, Optics developed upgrades for its compact infrared thermometers, which improved their speed and flexibility for industrial use. This is expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period.

Report Highlights

The mercury-free thermometers segment dominated the market with a share of 62.52% in 2020 and is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period owing to the high adoption and user-friendliness. The segment is further classified into digital thermometers, infrared radiation thermometers, and others. The adoption of mercury-free thermometers, such as IR radiation thermometers and digital thermometers, is anticipated to increase as they provide more accurate readings and are not associated with the environmental hazards of mercury. On the basis of product, the market is segmented into mercury-based thermometers and mercury-free thermometers.

Mercury-based thermometers such as liquid-in-glass thermometers are easy-to-use thermometers that are employed in laboratories. However, since 2001, almost 20 states have banned the use of mercury-based thermometers, especially for medical use, due to the poisonous effects of mercury. More stringent regulations on the use of these devices are expected to be implemented in the coming years, limiting the use of mercury-based thermometers in various fields. For instance, Analytical Technology and Control Limited will stop supplying customers with ASTM-approved mercury-in-glass thermometers and instead will supply spirit-filled thermometers to their customers.

The medical segment including hospitals, clinics, and primary healthcare centers dominated the market with a share of 28.53% in 2020. This can be attributed to the presence of well-established healthcare infrastructure and the high incidence of diseases requiring body temperature assessment. One of the major reasons for the growth of this segment is technological advancements in thermometers. For instance, the Instant Read Digital Ear thermometer of A&D Company Limited markets a thermometer with a one-button operation and it has 10 memory recalls. It aids in easy measurements in 1 second and has an LCD display. Based on application, the market is segmented into medical, industrial, food, laboratory, and others.

The industrial application segment is expected to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period as pharmaceuticals, chemical, and companies require specific temperature maintenance during various stages of product development. Industrial thermometers are selected depending upon their type, size, configurations, display options, features, applications, and operating environments. Moreover, the presence of key players such as Microtemp electrics Co., Ltd.; Endress+Hauser Management AG; and LumaSense Technologies, Inc. is expected to aid overall market growth. These factors are anticipated to boost the segment growth during the forecast period.

North America dominated the market with a share of 34.45% in 2020. The growing geriatric population and higher healthcare expenditure are some of the key factors contributing to the market growth. Healthcare camps and initiatives undertaken by government organizations, such as the WHO and the NIH, for spreading awareness about infectious diseases and helping maintain better health status are anticipated to further boost the market growth. For instance, body temperature monitoring is the new norm for coronavirus infection screening until a vaccine is ready. As community spread begins in most countries worldwide, including the U.S., over the counter sales of thermometers in the consumer market are rising. In addition, well-established healthcare infrastructure in North America and increasing demand for disposable thermometers are expected to drive the market.

Asia Pacific is expected to expand at the highest CAGR of 8.9% from 2021 to 2028. The presence of high unmet medical needs, the increasing prevalence of target diseases, including malaria, dengue, and swine flu, and growing patient awareness about the same in the region are some of the key factors contributing to its lucrative growth. According to the World Malaria Report 2018, around 94% of the Indian population is at risk of acquiring malaria. Moreover, economic growth in various countries of Asia Pacific, especially in Japan and China, is expected to propel market growth. Increasing demand for self-health care products and healthcare establishments catering to the elderly is also expected to drive the market over the forecast period.
