The Cost Proportion of BodyThermometer

2020-03-22   By Arttronix

Since the outbreak of the corona-virus, the requirement of the forehead thermometer is getting more and more popular used and it’s currently in the badly short supply. In China, the prices of a thermometer raised up a lot, spot prices have soared 2-3 times, and the prices of key components have even increased by dozens of times.

Compared with other medical equipment, thermometer is not a high technical products, while it is one of the essential supplies of a company required by the China government, whereas the government doesn’t allow any enterprise to get back to work, so it becomes the focal point, and the price is getting more and more expensive.

Just like masks, protective clothing, alcohol, disinfectant and other scarce supplies, the huge shortage and the booming demand caused by the corona-virus has pushed up the prices, it looks like that this is in the line with the logic of market rule, but I think there may be some artificial operation behind the price increasing.
