Market Size & Trends

The U.S. temperature modulation devices market size was estimated at USD 1.04 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.4% from 2024 to 2030. This growth can be attributed to the rise in the number of surgical procedures, ambulatory surgery trends, advancements in technologies, and the increasing prevalence of cardiovascular and neurological disorders. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cardiovascular disease claims one life every 33 seconds in the U.S. It also stated that in 2021, heart disease caused the death of approximately 695,000 people in the U.S., which accounts for one out of every five deaths.

U.S. Temperature Modulation Devices  market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The demand for patient temperature modulation devices in the U.S. has increased due to the rising number of surgical procedures. As medical technology advances, surgical procedures have become more complex and lengthy. Prolonged surgeries can lead to fluctuations in a patient’s body temperature, making temperature regulation essential. Patient temperature modulation devices help maintain normothermia throughout the procedure, reducing the risk of complications.

The increasing trend towards ambulatory or same-day surgeries necessitates efficient temperature management strategies, leading to market growth. Patient temperature modulation devices allow for precise body temperature control, promoting faster recovery and minimizing the risk of postoperative complications.

Technological advancements have led to the development of more sophisticated temperature modulation devices. These devices offer improved accuracy, efficiency, and user-friendly interfaces, making them more appealing to healthcare providers and patients. One such advancement is wearable temperature modulation devices that can be discreetly worn under clothing and provide continuous temperature regulation. For instance, in August 2023, AION Biosystems, Inc. announced FDA clearance for the iTempShield device, its skin wearable temperature monitoring device.

The increasing prevalence of cardiovascular and neurological disorders is one of the primary factors driving the market. Patients suffering from these conditions often require temperature modulation devices to manage their temperature and improve their outcomes. For example, hypothermia therapy is commonly used in the treatment of patients with cardiac arrest, traumatic brain injury, and stroke.

Furthermore, the growth in the usage of temperature regulation equipment in emergency departments (ED) and intensive care units (ICU) is projected to drive the growth of the market. Temperature modulation devices are crucial in ICUs and EDs, where patients often experience temperature fluctuations due to severe illnesses, surgeries, or injuries. By ensuring proper temperature regulation, these devices can improve patient outcomes, reduce the risk of complications, and decrease hospital stays, leading to increased demand.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market growth stage is medium, and the pace of growth is accelerating. The degree of innovation in temperature modulation devices has been significant in recent years. With advancements in technology, various devices are available that can control and monitor temperatures precisely. These devices range from simple thermostats to complex systems that use artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to optimize temperature settings. Some innovative temperature modulation devices include smart thermostats, wireless temperature sensors, and remote monitoring systems. As energy efficiency and environmental sustainability demand continues to grow, even more innovation is anticipated.

U.S. Temperature Modulation Devices Market Concentration & Characteristics

The U.S. temperature modulation devices market is also characterized by a medium level of merger and acquisition (M&A) activity by the players. This is due to various factors such as the increasing demand for temperature control devices, technological advancements, and the need for companies to expand their product portfolios and market reach. For instance, in January 2022, ICU Medical announced the successful completion of the acquisition of Smiths Medical.

The level of regulatory scrutiny for medical temperature modulation devices in the U.S. is high due to the potential risks associated with these devices and the need to ensure their safety and effectiveness for patient use. The FDA classifies medical temperature modulation devices under Class II, requiring premarket notification (510(k)) to demonstrate substantial equivalence to a legally marketed device or premarket approval (PMA) to establish their safety and effectiveness. Manufacturers must follow the FDA's Quality System Regulations to ensure their medical devices meet quality standards and function as intended. After approval, post-market surveillance activities are required to monitor the device's performance, report adverse events, and address any safety concerns during its lifecycle.

There are several product substitutes for medical temperature modulation devices. These include cooling pads, vests, blankets, and helmets. In addition, heating pads and warm blankets can be utilized to elevate body temperature when required.

End-user concentration is significantly high in the market. This is due to the diverse user base, widespread adoption, regulatory requirements, training programs, and technological advancements that promote accessibility and usability among a broad range of individuals in healthcare settings.

Product Insights

The convective patient warming systems segment dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of 27.9% in 2023. The segment is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR from 2024 to 2030. This high percentage can be attributed to the growing number of surgical procedures, the rising prevalence of hypothermia, and advancements in technologies. For instance, In April 2023, Baxter unveiled multiple products at AORN 2023, including the commercial launch of the new conductive Baxter Patient Warming system developed to assist in achieving and maintaining patient normothermia.

These products improve patient outcomes, including reduced post-operative infections, faster recovery times, and shorter hospital stays. The increasing focus on improving patient outcomes and reducing healthcare costs is driving the adoption of these systems. In addition, rising demand from emergency centers and remote clinics is also anticipated to propel the demand for temperature control systems.

U.S. Temperature Modulation Devices market share and size, 2023

The portable blood/IV fluid warmers sector is projected to grow at a significant CAGR from 2024 to 2030.
