The use of thermometers is increasing in developed countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Italy, and India, owing to the high prevalence of infectious diseases, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic. Increased body temperature is the first indication that the body is preparing to fight infection; as a result, doctors worldwide base their initial diagnosis on thermometer readings. As a result of the spread of highly infectious diseases, the demand for thermometers in medical settings worldwide is increasing. For example, the CDC reports that approximately 35.5 million people were diagnosed with influenza during the 2018 – 2019 season, with 16.5 million people visiting physicians and 490,600 hospitalized. As a result, these factors are expected to boost market growth over the forecast period. Similarly, India suffers from a high burden of infectious diseases, including influenza virus, scrub typhus, malaria, dengue fever, and the Kyasanur Forest Disease (KFD) virus, as well as the current coronavirus pandemic. According to the CDC report, these diseases account for more than 80% of illnesses that begin with a high fever. These are the major factors that are expected to drive the market’s growth over the forecast period.

Additionally, the coronavirus outbreak benefited the medical industry by increasing demand for thermometers. This is likely to be the primary driver of the market over the forecast period. The increased demand for infrared thermometers has been fueled by the increased need for thermal screening in public places, offices, and hospitals. Additionally, a ban on traditional mercury-in-glass thermometers in 13 states in the United States is boosting non-contact thermometer sales. The government has enacted legislation prohibiting the production and sale of mercury thermometers. This eliminates the risk of glass thermometer breakage and the subsequent release of mercury vapor in the home, which is hazardous to the environment. As a result, mercury thermometers have been phased out in favor of electronic thermometers, while infrared thermometer sales have increased.
Additionally, thermometers are required in the food industry to monitor temperatures to avoid contamination and degradation of food and beverages. TEL-TRU, for example, offers a selection of NSF-certified poultry/meat, food testing, and barbeque thermometers. Thus, these thermometers contribute to the preservation of the quality of temperature-sensitive foods, thereby stimulating market growth.
