Thermal cameras and thermometers most COVID-19 affected health categories in Q2-2020

Avatar for Martijn Hoogeveen

Which ten medical categories in Icecat are most affected by COVID-19? Thermal imaging cameras show growth by more than 3000% during Q2-2020, compared to the same period one year before. These cameras are typically installed in public buildings, airports, and hospitals, to quickly detect people with fever. Not unrelated, handheld thermometers expanded by 2500% year-on-year.

Next comes sterilization: UV sterilizers expanded by 902%, garage hand cleaners by 818%, and hand sanitizers by 559%.

Third is protection: safety face shields expanded by 619%, protective footwear by 360%, and reusable respirators by 424%.

Finally, vitamins & minerals expanded by 808% and health training by 674%.

These are only the first ten health categories in terms of y-o-y growth, affected by COVID-19. Of course, there are many others, like face masks, that are already in the public spotlights, but seem to be less prominent in our measurement.
