Infrared Thermometer Market Analysis

The Infrared Thermometer Market will register a CAGR of 9.2% over the forecast period. An infrared thermometer is a device for measuring temperature that uses an infrared sensor to translate infrared signals into electrical signals and show the results in temperature units.

  • The primary reasons anticipated to drive the market are an increase in the prevalence of infectious diseases and other medical problems, including malaria and dengue, as well as growing public awareness of the significance of body temperature monitoring.
  • In addition, as the temperature is one of the essential factors in the maintenance and regular inspection of equipment used in the manufacturing business, IR-based thermometers are becoming an ever-increasing part of the worldwide automation and predictive maintenance demand.
  • Moreover, increased automation, growing infrared thermometer usage in predictive maintenance, and growing acceptance of infrared thermometers in agriculture would open up profitable growth opportunities.
  • The price of infrared thermometers and their low market penetration in various developing and underdeveloped countries are some factors limiting the growth of the infrared thermometer market.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic, which forced all governments to impose strict lockdowns, negatively impacted the market's expansion. However, the infrared thermometer market is predicted to rebound after the pandemic because of its expansion into more varied and creative application fields, including medical, industrial, and others.

Infrared Thermometer Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Infrared Thermometer Market according to our research experts:

Healthcare Industry to Dominate the Market

  • In medicine, infrared sensors are used to measure skin temperature. The temperature distribution along the surface of the human skin provides information about various physiological issues involving thermoregulation and metabolism.
  • Due to their affordability, better quality, and non-contact rapid screening in measuring body temperature, portable infrared thermometers are generally recommended thermometers.
  • Additionally, the market is anticipated to grow due to healthcare professionals' reliance on thermometers to assess patients' health.
  • Detecting blood arteries during laparoscopic surgery is one of the most cutting-edge applications of IR sensor technology. Analyzing physiological processes connected to skin temperature is done using medical infrared thermography (MIT). Thanks to technological advancements, MIT is now a trusted tool for medical measurement.
  • As the COVID-19 epidemic continues, there is a growing demand for thermometers for constant temperature checks. This demand is also driven by the cost and ease of use of infrared thermometers and growing government spending in the healthcare sector.
