"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"

Breathalyzers Market Size, Share and Global Trend By Type (Professional, Personal), By Technology (Fuel Cell Technology, Semiconductor Oxide Sensor Technology, Infrared Spectroscopy, Other Technologies), By Distribution Channel (Healthcare Facilities, Law enforcement & Military, Consumers, Transport) and Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI100743 | Status : Ongoing



Breathalyzers are non-invasive devices used to analyze the breathing alcohol content (BAC). Breathalyzers are quick and simple to use, and they offer an accurate method of measuring the alcohol content in the breath. The demand for these point-of-care devices is increasing at a rapid pace owing to growing prevalence of alcohol consumption and implementation of strict government regulations to prevent from the road accidents. Increase in road accidents is one of the common reasons of death across many developed as well as developing regions.

Rise in the demand for personal portable breathalyzers to keep in check the alcohol content within normal limits is likely to drive the breathalyzers market. Moreover, technological advancements in the form of smart breathalyzers that can be connected to smart phones, smart watches, wearable fitness trackers, and others are likely to fuel the demand for personal portable breathalyzers during the forecast period. In June 2018, BACtrack, a leader in breathalyzers market announced launch of its next-gen breathalyzer BACtrack C8, which not only shows estimated BAC level but its patented ZeroLine technology estimates the time required to get back the breathing alcohol content BAC to 0.00%.

Changing lifestyle and rise in the disposable income have increased alcohol consumption around the world. This has in turn resulted in the increasing cases of road accidents as a result of drinking and driving. As per data by CDC, everyday 29 people in the U.S. die in motor vehicle crashes, involving an alcohol-impaired driver.

Increasingly stringent regulations implemented to curb drinking and driving is one of the leading factors expected to propel the growth of the breathalyzers market during the forecast period. Improved laws, enhanced enforcements, and growing public awareness have resulted in the dramatic decline in the drunk driving while fueling the demand for the breathalyzers. Moreover, availability of technologically advanced products for personal use is likely to boost the breathalyzers market during the forecast period. Growing awareness among the population as a result of government campaigns is likely to drive the breathalysers market during the forecast period.

For instance, in 2015, Colorado Department of Transportation launched a campaign, ‘Moving Colorado Towards Zero Deaths with the aim of zero deaths for every individual, family, and community using Colorado’s transportation network.It is state’s new Strategic Highway Safety Plan, which provides innovative and data-driven approaches to improve highway safety. The plan leverages the success of safety programs statewide to decrease fatalities, serious injuries and crashes on Colorado’s roadways. However, high cost of the devices, accuracy issues related to many breathalysers devices, and lack of awareness about the innovative breathalysers devices in low-middle income countries are likely to hinder the growth of breathalyzers market during the forecast period.
