Breath Analyzers Market
Breath Analyzers Market

The breath analyzers market is expected to register a CAGR of ~16% over the period of 2022-2028. This is mainly due to its increasing application in the identification of various cases of alcohol & drug abuse and the treatment of various diseases. This rise in the cases of drinking and driving with alcohol is contributing to market growth. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2020, among the 11,654 alcohol-impaired-driving fatalities, 67% (7,831) were in crashes in which at least one driver had a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of 0.15 g/dL or higher. Major healthcare companies are investing heavily in their product advancements due to rising social awareness regarding levels and legal requirements in workplaces to keep the environment drug-free and alcohol-free has resultantly increased product demand from offices, workplaces, and schools demand efficient as well accurate medical detection devices. For instance, in August 2022, Imspex Diagnostics secured the CE Mark for BreathSpec, an instrument that detects COVID-19 using breath testing and analysis. Furthermore, various factors such as growing research and development activities are also expected to drive the demand for the analyzers over the forecast period which is responsible for the excessive use and significantly contributes to the market for the medical applications of breath analyzers. Therefore, the market for breath analyzers is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.

AK GlobalTech Corp., Lion Laboratories, Alcohol Countermeasure Systems Corp., Alcolizer Pty Ltd., BACtrack, Drägerwerk AG & Co. KGaA, Honeywell International Inc., Lifeloc Technologies Inc., Intoximeters, Inc., Bedfont Scientific Ltd. are some of the key players in the market.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst technology, fuel cell technology category accounted for the majority share in the market in 2020”

Based on technology, the market is classified into fuel cell technology, semiconductor oxide sensor technology, infrared, and others. Amongst technology, the fuel cell technology category accounted for a significant share of the market. This is mainly due to its accuracy in detecting breath alcohol, devices equipped with this technology are easily approved by regulatory authorities from various countries. For instance, in July 2021, Lifeloc Technologies Inc. announced the launch of two fuel cell-based handheld breathalyzers, LT7 and LX9. Moreover, the fuel cell technology is based on an electrochemical process that oxidizes the alcohol in a breath sample and produces an electrical current that the breathalyzer measures to determine the blood alcohol content (BAC) which is likely to boost the demand for breath analyzers.

“Amongst Applications, alcohol detection is expected to witness highest CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on application, the market is categorized into alcohol detection, drug abuse detection, and others. Alcohol detection is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This segment is rising due to its demand for breath analyzers used by personnel as well as by professionals to restrict drunken individuals from entering the company premises and other social places. Furthermore, stringent government rules for driving under the influence are expected to support the segment’s growth over the forecast period. These results boost the production of breath analyzers.

“North America to witness significant growth during the forecast period”

North America is expected to show the highest CAGR growth in the breath analyzers market. The major contributors to the growth of this market are US and Canada. This is mainly due to the growing number of breath analyzers available and the highly developed economy, high product adoption rates, and awareness about road traffic safety in the U.S. economy. For instance, as per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2020, every day, about 32 people in the United States die in drunk-driving crashes — that’s one person every 45 minutes. Thus, the growing consumption of alcohol, increasing research on the medical applications of breath analyzers, and the development of advanced breath analyzers by major companies and the diagnostics industry owing to the presence of well-established market players and frequent product launches in the region.
