European Disposable Thermometer Market size is expected to reach USD 110 million by 2027, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research.
The market growth is due to the rise in infectious diseases such as malaria, flu, and typhoid fever. West Nile Virus and COVID-19 are other two major infectious diseases for which fever is the primary symptom. For instance, according to the European Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), in December 2019, European Union (EU) member states and EU neighbouring economies reported 463 West Nile Virus human infections. Thus, disposable thermometers is an important device to monitor the body temperature among the diseased population, thereby augmenting the market value.
Presence of major manufacturers of disposable devices including disposable thermometer such as Medline Industries, 3M Company and Medical Indicators among others in Europe has strengthened the market demand. Also, increasing R&D activities to develop novel products is expected to boost the market revenue. Furthermore, increasing awareness among the population to use contactless and disposable devices owing to increasing COVID-19 cases is anticipated to foster the industry growth. However, measurement errors and availability of substitute in the market may hamper the disposable thermometer business growth.
The strip thermometer segment is poised to show significant growth of 8% across the forecast timeframe. Forehead strip thermometers are commonly and widely used for pediatric population, as they are safe and can be directly placed on forehead without causing any disturbance or discomfort. For instance, CliniTemp is a plastic strip thermometer that is designed to be placed on the forehead to detect the body temperature by color change. Thus, availability of such thermometers along with ease of use as well as accurate results has stimulated the market expansion.

The oral segment will showcase around 6.6% growth rate during the forecast period. The oral disposable thermometer is placed in the oral cavity, nearby to the sublingual arteries to track the changes in body temperature. The oral thermometer is easily accessible, more convenient and provide better result of core body temperature. Thus, owing to these factors the demand for disposable thermometer increases. Furthermore, the oral thermometer is easy to use, required less maintenance and there are minimum chances of getting infections.
The hospitals segment dominated over USD 18.7 million revenue in 2020 attributed to increasing prevalence of health care-associated infection (HAI). HAI is the infection acquired by patient during their hospital stay. The common health care-associated infections are respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections and bloodstream infections among others. For instance, in 2018, European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) estimated that more than 3.5 million people acquire health care-associated infection (HAI) and more than 90,000 fatalities due to HAI in countries of Europe annually. Thus, there is an increasing demand for thermometers in hospitals to monitor the body temperature of the patients, thereby fostering the market growth.
Germany disposable thermometer industry is anticipated to exceed USD 17.8 million by 2027 credited to increasing research and development activities to develop various disposable healthcare devices including disposable thermometer to avoid cross infections among the population. Also, availability of advanced disposable thermometers to measure body temperature will serve as major impact rendering factor for country level market demand. Furthermore, high disposable income coupled with developed healthcare infrastructure is anticipated to further drive the industry outlook.
