Thermal scanners detect body heat radiation-usually from the forehead-then estimate core body temperature. These cameras are a potent tool often used by firefighters to track smouldering embers and police to search for suspects who are out of sight. COVID-19 outbreak has increased demand from healthcare facilities for the thermal scanners. The device helps healthcare professionals monitor the temperature of the patient’s body and take necessary action based on scanner resfults. The airline industry has also increased demand for thermal scanners, where air passengers are screened for any symptoms of the virus. Those factors will positively impact the thermal scanner market growth over the forecast period.
