An ignition interlock device is also called the breath alcohol ignition interlock device, which is a breath analyser in a personal vehicle. This device requires the driver to blow into the mouth blower on the device before starting or operating the vehicle. The amount of alcohol in a driver’s breath indicates the existing level of alcohol in his body. If the obtained breath alcohol concentration analysis result is greater than the set blood alcohol concentration, the device will prevent the engine from starting. The interlock is located inside the vehicle, near the driver's seat, and is directly connected to the engine's ignition system. If the analysed result of breath-alcohol concentration is greater than the pre-set limit of the blood alcohol concentration, the device averts the engine from getting started. These ignition interlock devices are installed inside the vehicle, on the dashboard, near the driver’s seat and are connected to the vehicle’s engine ignition system. These devices are for individuals who are convicted of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or Driving Under Influence (DUI) crimes in which the driver is accused for alcohol consumption while driving.

Regional Analysis:

Geographically, the ignition interlock devices market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the rest of the world. North America holds the largest share in the global market owing to the rapid adoption of technologically advanced features by the automotive industry. Majority of the states in the United States impose specific laws related to ignition interlock devices, as well as they provide mandatory ignition interlock procedures for all drink-driving violations. For example, California has implemented a pilot program in its four largest counties, while the laws of Maine and Colorado are not mandatory for first convictions. However, on integrating ignition interlock devices in vehicles, lucrative rewards are offered to promote the use of ignition interlock devices which is consequently boosting the growth of the market in this region. Moreover, several commercial fleet owners have voluntarily installed ignition interlock devices in their vehicles to avoid accidents caused by drink and drive activities. Also, many school buses are fitted with ignition interlock equipment to ensure the safety of children. However blood alcohol concentration level is lower as compared to the passenger cars, because accidents may cause huge losses to the company as well as the driver.
