The Breath Analyzer is a device used to track the Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) in an individual, through a breath sample. The test performed depends upon the relationship between alcohol in the blood or in the breath flowing through the lungs. Increasing trend for extreme alcohol consumption resulting into a road accidents; has increased the usage of breathalyzer devices. Favorable government initiatives are also driving the market growth. Breathalyzer devices are also gaining importance due to the increasing demand at work place for effective BAC (blood alcohol content) level and its non-invasive nature which is increasing the demand for breath analyzer devices. It is an essential tool for monitoring drugs, alcohol, tuberculosis, asthma and other diseases hence; it is projected that the demand for this system should constantly rise. However, imprecise analysis can cause incorrect diagnosis which is the major restraint of the market. Arrival of dual sensor technology and focus on emerging markets are the key opportunities to drive this market.
The global Breath Analyzer market is segmented on the basis of technology, application and geography. On the basis of technology, the global breathalyzer devices market is further segmented into semiconductor sensor, fuel cell and Infrared Adsorption. Furthermore, breath analyzers market can be segmented on the basis of application into Drug Abuse Detection, Asthma detection, Alcohol detection, H. pylori Infection detection and tuberculosis detection. The alcohol detection segment has the largest market share due to increasing incidences of road accidents and excessive alcohol consumption. Geographically, the market is segmented into various regions such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and LAMEA. North America accounted for the largest market share followed by Europe. The growth in this region is mainly due to factors such as favorable government initiatives, rising awareness and increasing demand for alcohol testing devices to lower the risk of accidents caused by alcohol consumption. Although, developed countries are dominating the breath analyzer market, the Asia-Pacific region will have the highest growing market due to rise in disposable incomes, increasing number of vehicles, and the occurrence rate of accidents caused due to alcohol consumption.
Partnerships and collaborations are the key strategies adopted by the industry players to increase their market growth.
