Impact of COVID-19 on the Thermal Camera Market
A thermal camera is used for recording and monitoring temperatures produced by devices in electrical enclosures and also in firefighting operations. Thermal cameras are capable of operating in both day or night conditions, as well as in cluttered or foggy environments. These cameras are widely adopted by the residential and commercial sectors, as they provide information on water leakages and cracks and locate inadequate insulation. Besides, the increasing adoption of thermal cameras in security and surveillance applications owing to the rising government expenditures in the military sector is also expected to drive the market growth. In most countries, the governments have imposed restrictions on the movement of the citizens and have increased public awareness to curb the spread of the COVID-19. The primary aim is to reduce the transmission of the virus through measures such as social distancing. Thermal cameras are being widely adopted by the healthcare industry during the current pandemic situation.
Thermal cameras play an essential role in preventing the spread of the coronavirus in an organization. These cameras provide thermal imaging, which can accurately and quickly determine the people with high body temperature. Thermal body temperature solutions support the recognition of body temperature, a vital symptom of the disease, and thus can serve as an additional measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in healthcare facilities. Thermal cameras have been deployed at multiple airports across the world, as the demand for the non-contact temperature measuring equipment is increasing owing to the rise in the COVID-19 cases. Besides, thermal cameras have also been deployed in other transportation hubs where the passenger traffic is high, and it is not possible to check the temperature of each person manually. The demand for thermal cameras is witnessing an upsurge during the pandemic as they have proven to be an effective measure that can be implemented to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
