A recent report published by
Infinium Global Research on breath analyzers market provides in-depth analysis
of segments and sub-segments in the global as well as regional breath analyzers
market. The study also highlights the impact of drivers, restraints, and macro
indicators on the global and regional breath analyzers market over the short
term as well as long term. The report is a comprehensive presentation of
trends, forecasts, and dollar values of global breath analyzers market. According
to the report, the global breath analyzers market is projected to grow at a
CAGR of 26.5% over the forecast period of 2020-2026.
Breath analyzers are the medical
devices that are used to identify various compounds in the exhaled breath of an
individual. It is considered as the essential instrument for the recognition of
alcohol, drugs, tuberculosis, asthma, and other diseases. Semiconductor oxide
breath analyzers are also known to be less accurate than fuel cell
breathalyzers, but low cost and low power consumption models. Breath analyzer
devices include an ethanol-specific sensor, but, sometimes acetones and other
metabolites can act as ethanol and give a false reading. Fuel cell breath
analyzers are electrochemical fuel cell breathalyzers work by using chemicals
to oxidize the alcohol in a breath sample and using that oxidation process to
generate an electric current. Spectrophotometry recognizes specific molecules
by the way they react to infrared light and are not as prone to false positives
as semiconductor breathalyzers. These are large and expensive pieces of
equipment, and fuel cell breathalizers are considered just as accurate as long
as the conditions are controlled.
Increasing alcohol consumption,
stringent government regulations to minimize alcohol and drug abuse, increasing
demand from law enforcement agencies along with other institutions like sports,
colleges, and offices are some of the key driving factors for the growth of
this market. In addition, the growing demand for easy diagnostics methods for
various diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, etc.
further propelling this market. The rising demand for speedy, accurate, and
easy methods for principal identification of diseases such as asthma, COPD
(chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), and cancer is fueling the market
growth. Breath analyzers can be used by personals as well as by professionals
to avoid drunken individuals from entering the company premises and other
social places. However, there are certain restraining factors that could hamper
the growth of the market that includes high-cost spectrophotometer breath
analyzers, and uncertainty about the accuracy of devices. The spread of novel
coronavirus impacted the breath analyzers market in 2020. Due to Covid-19, the
majority of surgeries have been given less priority. While in recent months,
other medical device markets have come to the fore. Extremely amplified demand
for critical pieces of equipment such as PPE (personal protective equipment),
ventilators, and testing kits along with subsequent shortages of these devices
has seen firms do everything they can to keep pace with the ever-growing needs
of healthcare providers.
Among the regions, North America
dominates the global breath analyzers market followed by the European market.
The factors such as alcohol & drug testing regulations, rising use of
personal breath analyzers, and the number of new product launches are driving
the demand for breath analyzers in this market. The factors such as awareness
conferences such as the Alcohol Interlock Symposia, stringent laws &
growing usage of breath analyzers, mandate for motorists to carry breathalyzer
kits in their vehicle, and seminars conducted by the European Transport Safety
Council are anticipated to fuel market growth in the Europe region.
