Market Overview

The body temperature monitoring market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period. 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 Ebola virus. 

Additionally, the growing pediatric population is responsible for driving market growth, globally. The factors, such as flu outbreak, have a considerable effect on the market studied. For instance, in 2019, the European countries faced severe outcomes of flu. According to the World Health Organization 2018 report, seasonal influenza was estimated to result in about 3 to 5 million cases of severe illness annually worldwide. Additionally, an increase in concerns regarding health has become a primary factor driving the market studied.

In addition, the growing preference of digital thermometer helps in giving more accurate and faster result, 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 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. 

Moreover, as per the United Nations 2019 Report, estimates that the population of children aged 0 to 14 years worldwide is expected to be about 2.02 billion in 2030. This number indicates that the market is expected to show growth in the coming years as pediatric population expected to grow in the near future. As they tend to get fever more often and it requires temperature monitoring devices.

In addition, there are advantages and disadvantages associated with oral thermometers. Accessibility and convenience are considered to be the advantages offered by these devices. The chance for these devices breaking into pieces, if bitten, and recording inaccurate temperature, if the person has ingested food or fluid, or has smoked, are the disadvantages of these devices. Hence, all the aforementioned factors are expected to lead to a steady growth of the market.

North America Dominates the Market and is Expected to Continue the Same during the Forecast Period

North America currently dominates the market for body temperature monitoring and is expected to continue its dominance for a few more years. This region is expected to increase its market share in the future, owing to the increased adoption of body temperature monitoring devices. 

The United States holds the majority of the market in the North American region, due to the rising cases of flu. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 2017, 5%-20% of the United States population suffers from flu each year, which increases the outpatient visits by around 31.4 million, annually. 

Thus, these statistics imply the huge demand for body temperature monitoring devices. Additionally, as per the American Hospital Association, there were more than 36.5 million admissions to hospitals in 2017. This huge number denoted the requirement for body temperature monitoring devices, and therefore, was as a driving factor to the market.
