This market research study identifies Drägerwerk, Intoximeters, Lifeloc Technologies, and MPD as some of the leading vendors in the global breath analyzers market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by market values, market shares, market trends & demands, market segmentation by technology (fuel cell, semiconductor, and infrared), by end user (law enforcement, enterprises, and others), and by geography (Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the breath analyzers market

Extensive research carried out by the analysts at Technavio has shown that the global breath analyzers market will witness exponential growth and post a tremendous CAGR of more than 25% over the forecast period. The increasing demand for breath analyzers has led to the manufacturers introducing several innovations in the product, which is expected to have a positive impact on this market’s growth in the coming years. The technology used in breath analyzers has been around for decades, whether it is infrared, semiconductor, or fuel cell sensors. The challenge to reduce the size and processing time of these devices to a minimum, without compromising on the accuracy of the sensor, was met by the evolution of integrated circuits and the miniaturization of electronics. Moreover, some of these breath analyzers can also be connected to a smartphone via microUSB or Bluetooth, allowing the users to track BAC and health conditions using an application on their smartphones. The reduction in size and introduction of nifty features in breath analyzers will lead to their augmented adoption over the next four years.

In terms of geography, the Americas led the market and is likely to account for over 47% of the revenue market shares by 2020. Factors such as stringent road safety regulations relatively stronger infrastructure of law enforcement agencies will drive the market in this region. The US was the highest revenue contributor in the region as it is home to some of the biggest companies in this market such as Lifeloc Technologies, BACtrack, Quest Products, Intoximeter, and Akers Biosciences, thereby giving consumers access to a wider range of products.


Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global breath analyzers market is quite consolidated and dominated by a handful of vendors. The competitive environment is likely to intensify with an increase in the number of players, product extensions, new products, and new applications of integrated product offerings. With the rapid development of the alcohol and drug testing market in APAC and Latin America, there is a massive potential for the growth of the breath analyzers market in these regions.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • Drägerwerk
  • Intoximeters
  • Lifeloc Technologies
  • MPD

Other prominent vendors in the market include Alcohol Countermeasure Systems, Advanced Safety Devices, Akers Bioscience, Alcolizer Technology, Alcopro, BACtrack, Guth Laboratories, Meretek Diagnostics Group, PAS Systems, Quest Products, Toshiba Medical Systems, and TruTouch Technologies.


Segmentation by technology and analysis of the breath analyzers market

  • Fuel cell
  • Semiconductor
  • Infrared

During 2015, the global breath analyzers market was led by the fuel cell technology segment, which accounted for over 42% of the total market shares. This is a relatively new technology segment in the market and has gained rapid popularity since its introduction owing to its advantages and significantly higher accuracy that these devices are capable of delivering. Fuel cell sensors rely on an electrochemical process that oxidizes the alcohol in a breath sample. This oxidization process produces an electrical current that the device measures in order to determine the blood alcohol content (BAC). The strength of the current recorded is directly proportional to the volume of alcohol present in the sample. The greater reliability, accuracy, and mobility of devices employing this technology are the major drivers for this technology segment.


Segmentation by end users and analysis of the breath analyzers market

  • Law enforcement
  • Enterprises
  • Others

The law enforcement segment was high revenue contributor in the end user segment and is anticipated to account for nearly 49% of the market shares by 2020. Breath analyzers are widely used in law enforcement to detect alcohol and drug abuse. These devices are commonly used in DUI and road accidents to test the driver's BAC to check if it is above the legal limit. Portable fuel cell-based breath analyzers are often used by law enforcement personnel to measure the breath test readings quickly. The increasing cases of DUI have been one of the largest growth drivers for this segment, especially in developed countries.
