Ingestible Thermometers Market: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment; 2018 - 2028

Ingestible Thermometers: Market Insights

Ingestible Thermometers are basically ingestible sensors or pills that record body temperature and heart beat data continuously and transmit this data into an external device for graphical interpretation. In general, ingestible thermometers commercially available in the market is used orally. Ingestible thermometers are swallowed by the individuals and the data is recoded as it passes through the intestine before being excreted by the body in later hours. In the market, ingestible thermometers find applications in athletics or sports, military, gastrointestinal treatment and animal care.

Ingestible Thermometers: Market Dynamics

The global ingestible thermometers market is anticipated to have decent growth in the forecast period 2018-28. Ingestible thermometers market will be driven primarily due to the rise in the incidence of gastrointestinal disorders, rising regional economic growth leading to a sedentary lifestyle, increase in disposable income and high spending. Over the years, developments in sports medicine requiring instant internal body behavior data of athletes will also drive the growth of the ingestible thermometers globally. Ingestible thermometers have wide use in other applications such as in anesthesia and post-surgical follow-up, ambulatory surgeries requiring monitoring temperature continuously, in disease diagnostics and in tropical medicine for faster management of pandemics. Dealing with the side effects, the devices are also being used in treating immunosuppressed patients or during follow-up of chemotherapy treatments. Ingestible thermometers can also be fully alternative tools for rectal or esophageal probes, which are invasive, generate stress, mostly uncomfortable and limit the patient’s mobility. However, with so many applications and increase usage, the global ingestible thermometers market lacks competitiveness as the product is manufactured by the only handful of companies.
