The North America Body Temperature Monitoring Market size was valued at USD XX Billion in 2022 and is expected to surpass USD XX Billion by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period, 2023 – 2031. The growth of the market is attributed to rise in infectious conditions, like Ebola virus and swine flu disease, and increase in demand for non-contact thermometers, as the use of non-contact thermometers and infrared (IR) thermometers were exceedingly useful for identifying the new cases of an outbreak caused by the Ebola virus.
The body temperature of a normal human change throughout the day, though hyperthermia and hypothermia are serious health conditions. The temperature measurement of the body surface provides a piece of vital physiological information for various medical conditions. Body temperature can be monitored using various kinds of contact and contactless sensors. Body temperature measurement acts as a first tool for diagnosis.
Body temperature can be measured in several ways and from various places the most common is oral cavity, the armpit, the ear, and the rectum. Body temperature is one of the four main vital signs that must be monitored if body working goes wrong. It is important to use most appropriate technique to measure body temperature as inaccurate results negative influence diagnosis and treatment of the patient.
Electronic or disposable thermometers are used to measure body temperature. Chemical thermometers should be avoided if patient is hypodermic as their range of operation is 35.5°C-40.4°C and mercury thermometer is no longer in use. Tympanic thermometer senses reflected infrared emissions from tympanic membrane through a probe placed in external auditory canal.
The Covid-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the body temperature monitoring market. Growing number of cases suffering from COVID-19 are increasing day by day thus as a primary diagnostic process for COVID-19, temperature testing is essential step which in turn boosting the growth of Global Body Temperature Monitoring Market. As this pandemic affected worldwide, a drastic increase has been seen in the Global Body Temperature Monitoring Market.

North America Body Temperature Monitoring Market Segment insights
The contact segment is projected to constitute a large market share
Based on product, the North America body temperature monitoring market is segregated into contact and non-contact. The contact segment is expected to account for a key share of the market during the forecast period; however, non-contact segment is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period owing to increasing prevalence of contagious diseases and COVID-19 pandemic. To maintain safe distance with patients, non-contact temperature monitoring segment is estimated to gain rapid momentum during the forecasted period.
The oral cavity segment is expected to register a substantial CAGR
Based on application, the North America body temperature monitoring market is divided into oral cavity, rectum, ear, and others. The oral cavity segment accounts for a key share of the market and is estimated to propel even further over the forecast period owing to it being easy to diagnosis and non-invasive in nature. It is found to be the most accessible and is highly believed to provide the best estimation of the core body temperature. Furthermore, 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.
The North America body temperature monitoring market has been segmented on the basis of:-
- Oral Cavity
