Thus, the demand for thermometers will increase due to the need of monitoring the body temperature, thereby augmenting the disposable thermometer market growth. Various technological advancements for manufacturing cost efficient disposable thermometers will further boost the market growth in the coming years.

Innovations include combination of technology such as 3D printing with thermochromic liquid crystals to produce easy-to-read, high-quality, single-color change and moving line thermometers. Such innovations will create lucrative opportunities in the market thereby augmenting the industry growth. The adoption trend of non-mercury disposable thermometer in this region has increased in past few years. However, technical limitation of the device may hamper North America disposable thermometer industry growth in the forthcoming years.

Mercury thermometer segment held substantial revenue share in 2019 and is estimated to witness 5.2% CAGR over the analysis timeframe. The major factor boosting the market growth are the rising prevalence of infectious diseases, wherein measuring body temperature is the main diagnosis that requires accurate measurement.
