Patient temperature management systems are used to help patients stay normothermic before, during, and after surgery. In the case of patients receiving general or local anesthesia and whose body temperature fluctuates, which could be life-threating, medical professionals use patient temperature management systems to avoid such circumstances. Novel product launches and the increasing number of surgeries are increasing the demand for patient temperature management systems, thus driving the growth of the global patient temperature management systems market.
The global patient temperature management systems market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2,893.5 million in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 2.6% during the forecast period (2022-2030).

Global Patient Temperature Management Systems Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe and the World Health Organization declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.
The COVID-19 can affect the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting the production and demand of drugs, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nationwide lockdowns, several countries such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E., Egypt, and others are facing problems with regard to the transportation of drugs from one place to another.
The COVID-19 pandemic also had a negative impact on the global patient temperature management systems market. Due to COVID-19 pandemic, many cities were closed causing cancellation of treatments and doctor’s appointment. . Patients with serious medical problems such cardiovascular, general surgical, musculoskeletal, obstetrics and gynecological, and vascular need to physically separate from others, although delays in the treatment of such chronic diseases are upsetting. The decreased demand for temperature management systems therefore restrains market expansion even though the manufacturing and supply chain models of the industrial organizations have been disrupted.
Global Patient Temperature Management Systems Market: Key Developments
On August 23, 2021, ZOLL Medical Corporation, a company that manufactures medical devices and related software solutions, and Wallaby Medical Technologies, a medical device company dedicated to treating stroke, announced a distribution agreement whereby Wallaby will manage the sales and distribution of ZOLL's temperature management products in China.
Global Patient Temperature Management Systems Market: Restraint
Product recall by regulatory authorities is expected to hamper the growth of the global patient temperature management systems market over the forecast period. For instance, on July 24, 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a notice to recall Arctic Sun Temperature Management System, Model 5000. Arctic Sun 5000 model is a non-invasive, thermal regulating system, indicated for monitoring and controlling the patient temperature in adult and pediatric patients of all ages.
Major players operating in the global patient temperature management systems market include 3M Company, Cincinnati Sub-Zero Products, LLC, C.R. Bard, Inc., Zoll Medical Corporation, Smith Medicals, Stryker Corporation, Medtronic plc, Ecolab, and The Surgical Company.
Temperature is one of the vital signs signifying the well-being of a person, for which the medical society recommends monitoring and management as a part of standard care therapy for patients undergoing surgery due to critical illness. Patient temperature management systems are used in preoperative warming, operating and surgery rooms, post-operating warming, critical care units, intensive care units, chemotherapy, and emergency medical services. Increasing product approvals by regulatory authorities are one of the key factors augmenting the market growth.
The global patient temperature management systems market is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period, owing to increasing inorganic activities such as agreements by market players and new entrants in the patient temperature management systems market. For instance, on August 16, 2021, RenalSense, an Israel-based company specializing in real-time renal diagnostics, had announced a distribution agreement with Gloryway, a leading distributor of medical devices for anesthesia, airway management, temperature management, and patient monitoring in Mainland China. Gloryway will manufacture and market RenalSense's Clarity RMS critical care monitoring system to hospitals throughout Mainland China.
Furthermore, According to the factsheet Heart Disease and Stroke Statistic 2019 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 18.2 million adults in the U.S. currently have or have previously had a form of cardiovascular disease or a stroke. This high patient population undergoes cardiac surgery and has a high adoption rate for cutting-edge products. Nearly 805,000 Americans have experienced a heart attack.
