Growing number of disorder and medical conditions are requiring precise measurement of body temperature for deciding the treatment options. Diseases such as swine flu, dengue, and malaria can be diagnosed primarily by observing body temperatures is expected to boost the demand for the electronic medical thermometer. It is important to take accurate body temperature. Nowadays accurate and cost-effective alternatives thermometers are available over mercury-based thermometers. The electronic medical thermometer is the technologically advanced measurement option available over mercury-based thermometers to measure body temperature. Electronic thermometers provide quicker, more appropriate measurements and also eliminate the environmental hazards associated with mercury. Probe and ear electronic thermometer are the most common type of electronic thermometer. Many governments worldwide have banned or reduced the use of mercury thermometer. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are taken regulatory steps that would limit the use of the mercury-based products. Restriction for the use of the mercury-based thermometer is fueling the higher adoption of the newer range of electronic medical thermometer.
Increasing healthcare expenditure, lifestyle changes and healthcare awareness among general population will boost the growth of electronic medical thermometer market. The medical application such as pediatric monitoring, continuous physical parameter monitoring for pregnant women and patient for under emergency is the high demand area for electronic medical thermometer market. Increasing awareness regarding fitness is one of the key drivers for electronic medical thermometer market. High adoption of gadgets for measurement of body parameters at home will provide the high growth opportunity for electronic medical thermometer market. Increasing prevalence of diseases such as malaria and dengue is also increasing the demand for electronic medical thermometer market. Increasing demand for electronic medical thermometer over mercury thermometer will boost the demand of electronic medical thermometer.
