Because of the rising requirement for heat stress monitor among the competitors and military faculty and athletes. Due to these factors, the Japanese heat stress monitor market is expected to generate $3.96 million revenue by 2030, advancing at a CAGR of 7.05% during the forecast period (2021–2030).
The COVID-19 pandemic significantly affected the livelihood of citizens at an unprecedented level. It can be noted that Japan has, so far, better mitigated the worst epidemiological impact of COVID-19 relative to other high-income countries, especially in terms of the second and third waves of the virus. A resurgence of COVID-19 in Japan from July 2020 covered with the expanding interest for medical services in the summer, particularly because of heat related diseases. Lacking readiness prompted the second wave of COVID-19, which brought about an overstretched medical services arrangement framework in Japan.
The Japan heat stress monitor market is classified into hardware, software, and service, on the basis of offering type. Among these, the hardware category held the largest share in 2020. The type of hardware defines how efficiently the readings and recordings can be monitored and analyzed. Additionally, market players are focusing on improving their products to enable more-efficient heat stress monitoring.
Further, the market is categorized into manufacturing plants, athletics & sports, mining and oil & gas, military, and others, on the basis of application. Among these, the manufacturing plants category is expected to be the largest in the market during the forecast period, owing to the fact that these plants witness heat production in high amounts, as heat treatment is a common process here.
Moreover, the market is divided into globe thermometer, humidity, and airflow, based on sensor type. Additionally, the globe thermometer category held the largest share in the market. This device is used to measure the mean radiant temperature (MRT). Its high use is ascribed to the need to evaluate the radiation factor in human heat loss. It additionally helps in estimating the joined impact of radiant heat, air temperature, and wind speed.
Kanto was the most-productive region in the Japanese heat stress monitor market in 2020. The Kanto area includes the Tokyo city and six prefectures: Ibaraki Prefecture, Tochigi Prefecture, Gunma Prefecture, Saitama Prefecture, Chiba Prefecture, and Kanagawa Prefecture. Occupied by around 40 million individuals, or 33% of the country's populace, the Kanto area is the political and financial epicenter of the country. The vast majority of the country's industrial activities including mining, manufacturing, power gas, and water utilities, are concentrated here.
During the forecast period, the Kansai region is expected to witness the most noteworthy CAGR due to the rampant urban development and strong focus on making it an environment-friendly region.
Players in the Japan heat stress monitor market are launching new products to enhance their market presence. For instance, in July 2017, Fujitsu Limited announced the development of an algorithm to measure the heat stress level of people, using its artificial intelligence technology known as Human Centric AI Zinrai. With this technology, the company aims to enhance solutions deployed on its digital business platform, named MetaArc, which leverage the internet of things (IoT) technology to support on-site safety management.
Some of the key players operating in the Japan heat stress monitor market are Teledyne FLIR LLC, Fujitsu Limited, TSI Incorporated, Kyoto Electronics Manufacturing Co. Ltd., Nielsen-Kellerman Co., Besantek Corporation, Sper Scientific Ltd., Keyance Corporation, Sato Keiryoki Mfg. Co. Ltd., and General Tools & Instruments LLC.
