Figure : Global Breath Analyzers Market By Projection
Breath analyzers are the medical devices
which are used to identify various compounds in the exhaled breath of
an individual. These devices are considered as the fundamental tool for
the detection of alcohol, drugs, tuberculosis, asthma and other
diseases. There basically three types of breath analyzers available in
the market, which includes semiconductor oxide breath analyzers, fuel
cell breath analyzers, and spectrophotometer breath analyzers. Among
these, semiconductor oxide breath analyzers are low cost and low power
consumption models, but also known to be less accurate than fuel cell
breathalizers. These devices incorporate an ethanol-specific sensor,
however sometimes acetones and other metabolites can act as ethanol and
give a false reading. Fuel cell breath analyzers are electrochemical
fuel cell breathalizers work by using chemicals to oxidise the alcohol
in a breath sample, and using that oxidation process to generate an
electric current. More alcohol will create a larger electric current.
Spectrophotometry recognizes specific molecules by the way they react to
infrared light, and are not as prone to false positives as
semiconductor breathalizers. These are large an expensive pieces of
equipment, and fuel cell breathalizers are considered just as accurate
as long as the conditions are controlled. Breath analyzers can be used
by personals as well as by professionals to avoid the drunken
individuals from entering in the company premises and other social
Increasing alcohol consumption, stringent government regulations to minimize the alcohol and drugs 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, growing demand for easy diagnostics methods various diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, etc. further propelling this market. The market for global breath analyzers is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 28% during the forecast period of 2016 to 2022. However, there are certain restraining factors which could hamper the growth of the market, which includes high cost spectrophotometer breath analyzers, and uncertainty about the accuracy of devices.
Geographically, North America is leading contributor to the market and is expected to retain its position during the forecast period due to the presence of large number of market players and high adoption of advanced technologies in this region. Nonetheless, the market for Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow at a faster rate owing to growing awareness among the population, and presence of local manufacturers who are offering these devices at lower cost.
