Dial thermometers are a type of thermometer that measures the temperature by sensing changes in the expansion and contraction of a liquid. The market for dial thermometers is growing steadily, with global revenues forecast to reach $6.4 billion USD by 2028. Dial thermometers come in many different shapes and sizes, but they all measure temperature in degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit, which can be seen through the change in color on the rotating indicator at one end of the device.

Dial thermometers are instruments that measure temperature by measuring the difference in temperatures from a known fixed reference point. The most common type of dial thermometer is liquid actuated, which requires fluid to be present for it to function properly. Dial thermometers can also use mercury or vapor as their sensing agent and some have digital displays instead of analog ones. They generally do not require any external power source but may need calibration periodically if accuracy is important, such as when used with medical devices.

On the basis of type, the global dial thermometers market is segmented into liquid actuated, mercury-actuated, and vapor-actuated.

Liquid actuated

Liquid actuated dial thermometers measure temperature by utilizing a liquid that expands or contracts with changes in the ambient air temperature. The expansion of a mercury column is used to move an index pointer on a calibrated scale, and this movement indicates the reading of the instrument’s display from 0°C (32°F) to 50°C (122 °F). Liquid Actuated Dial Thermometers are also available as immersion-type instruments that can be immersed into liquids such as water baths for food processing purposes. These types typically have lower capacities than other models since their ratings depend directly upon contact time with the liquid being measured.

Mercury actuated

Mercury actuated dial thermometers are primarily used in industrial applications, such as food processing. The mercury is sealed inside the glass tube and moves up or down depending on its temperature response to a given condition. As it reaches one end of the tube, a pointer aligns with an indicator marked on the outer surface of the instrument's case indicating whether this was below or above room temperature.

Vapor actuated

Vapor actuated dial thermometers use a small amount of liquid such as mercury in the shaft to measure temperature. The liquid expands when heated; this movement can be used to turn the indicator hand on the scale and is calibrated for both Celsius and Fahrenheit measurements. When cool, the column of fluid contracts causing increased pressure inside that shuts off heat flow back into it. The boiling point (for water) or melting point (for fats) are commonly used points for measurement by vapor-actuated instruments. Vapor Actuated Dial Thermometer results will vary depending upon environmental conditions, but they should always be aligned with temperatures recorded using other types of graduated devices where possible.

On the basis of application, the global dial thermometers market is segmented into medical, industrial, food, and laboratory.


Most in-hospital medical care requires a dial thermometer for accurate temperature measurement. Dial thermometers are also used to take the tympanic or forehead temperatures of patients with fever and hyperthermia emergencies, such as heat stroke. Physicians use them to confirm diagnoses of hypothermia and hyperpyrexia (high body temperature). This type of thermometer is not typically recommended by medical professionals because it can be difficult to calibrate properly, especially when measuring the ear canal.


Its application in the Industrial sector involves measuring pipe sizes using dial thermometers with reference charts that display various thicknesses/gauges per inch as they relate to inside diameters (in inches). The equipment finds applications at oil refineries where quick access is needed for monitoring heat exchangers. Dial Thermometers are now being increasingly employed for monitoring temperature inside pipes that carry substances such as oil or gas through long distances without interruption to maintain a uniform flow rate at all times.


The use of dial thermometers in the food industry is to measure temperature. This includes bacteria, cooking time, and temperatures for preparing meat or poultry products, such as beef, chicken, turkey, ham, etc. Dial thermometers are commonly found in industrial bakeries all over the world because they provide accurate readings without requiring a probe that pierces food to take measurements. It is used by bakers to monitor dough during baking. Bakeries need accurate readings daily so that they can adjust their ovens accordingly if needed.


Dial thermometers are essential for measuring temperatures in laboratories. The dial thermometer is used to measure the temperature of laboratory samples. They can be used to measure the temperature of liquids, gases, and solids by sensing changes in resistance due to heat change. The instrument is able to detect even a small change in temperature such as 0.01 degree Celsius or more accurately at least one-thousandth of a degree Fahrenheit. Of course, this depends on the type and design of dial thermometer being used; mercury actuated models are most accurate because they don't need calibration and should not require recalibration over time while other types may need periodic adjustments so that they continue reading accurately with changing atmospheric pressure and humidity levels throughout the year.

On the basis of region, the global dial thermometers market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa. North America led the market in 2017 owing to the increasing adoption of dial thermometers by foodservice companies for ensuring safety standards are met and for measuring the temperature at industrial facilities such as pharmaceuticals plants. North America is the largest market for dial thermometers with a share of 49.03% in 2017 due to high demand from food and laboratory application followed by Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East & Africa respectively. The USA is expected to be the fastest-growing country in terms of revenue growth rate over the forecast period owing to a large number of pharmaceutical companies operating there as well as the presence of research institutions.

Growth Factors

The growth factors of the global dial thermometers market are increasing demand for liquid actuated, mercury actuated and vapor actuated dial thermometers in various industries such as medical, industrial, food, laboratory, or others. The major driving factor is that these three types of temperature measuring instruments have their own specific uses and applications which make them popular among end-users.
