The device used for the measurement of heat produced by the human body is known as indirect calorimeter. It determines the energy expenditure in the human body by the amount of oxygen consumed and the carbon dioxide eliminated from the body. It is a highly sensitive, noninvasive, and accurate tool for measurement of energy expenditure. The global indirect calorimeter market was valued at US$ 39.01 Mn in 2017. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.0% from 2018 to 2026.
An indirect calorimeter is utilized for nutritional assessment, nutrient assimilation, in pathogenesis of obesity and other metabolic diseases, such as diabetes, and thermogenesis. Technological advancements in the indirect calorimeter and its cost-effectiveness are likely to propel the market in the near future.
In terms of geography, the global indirect calorimeter market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America and Europe accounted for a major share of the global market in 2017. High prevalence of obesity, rise in awareness, favorable reimbursement policies, and increase in government initiatives that mandate the usage of indirect calorimeter to assess nutritional needs are driving the demand for indirect calorimeter in these regions. The indirect calorimeter market in Asia Pacific is likely to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. A large patient population with poorly controlled symptoms, increase in disposable income, and rise in health care expenditure are projected to fuel the market in the region in the near future.
