Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer Market Introduction & Overview
Non-contact infrared thermometer utilizes infrared radiation to measure the external temperature of an object or a person from a distance. The infrared technology measures the thermal radiation of an object/person without physical contact. They are useful when dealing with sick patients and measuring the temperature of mechanical & electric equipment. These types of thermometers resemble the shape of a gun so that they can be easily pointed at an object for temperature measurement. When pointed in the direction of an object, a laser is emitted from the thermometer, helping the user to find a precise target. The thermometer displays the temperature reading on a screen after measuring the thermal radiation being emitted from the object. As the infrared thermometer reads the thermal radiation, it measures the object’s surface temperature rather than the internal temperature. Utilizing a non-contact thermometer to handle sick patients is a safe way to avoid the contamination and minimizes the spread of contagious disease.
The non-contact infrared thermometer market is driven by factors such as rapid urbanization, technological advancements in the healthcare sector, therising number of life-threatening disease outbreaks,awareness regarding the spread of infections through contact thermometers, and homecare solutions adopted by growing aging populationsacross the world.Moreover, improving economiesandthe demand for quick,safe, and accurate test resultsare further adding to growth of the non-contact infrared thermometer market. However, the high cost of such devices and less disposable incomesarehampering the non-contact infrared thermometer market to a certain extent.
