The in-ear thermometers come with a disposable lens filter that helps to maintain hygiene, protects against cross-contamination, and ensures that ear wax doesn't impact the accuracy of the reading. In terms of temperature accuracy, however, in-ear thermometers are reported to provide more accurate readings than forehead thermometers.
The forehead thermometer is generally preferred for measuring temperature among children, who can be restless while measuring temperature, resulting in inaccurate readings. However, non-contact forehead thermometers offer a lot of convenience for the measurement of body temperature.
The increasing demand for the latest healthcare devices in countries such as China and India, as well as the rising medical tourism in the region, is supporting the growth of the market. Other regions such as Europe and the Middle East & Africa, where the penetration is low, are expected to witness increased demand during the forecast period due to the increased availability and rising awareness.
