A breathalyzer is a portable device for estimating blood alcohol content (BAC) from a breath sample. In the analyzer, a precise amount of the suspect’s exhaled breath is passed through a solution of potassium dichromate and sulfuric acid, and the change in the color of the solution is proportional to the amount of alcohol in the air sample, which in turn, is directly related to the alcohol content of the blood.

Breathalyzer and drug testing equipment are used in the field of law enforcement and highway safety administrations. Modern use of breathalyzers includes public users who can identify whether the amount of alcohol they have consumed is within permissible limits to drive or not. Therefore, an increasing number of public places such as restaurants and bars make use of their own breathalyzer system to prevent customers from breaking the law.

Law enforcement agencies, professional workplaces, and businesses also use regular drug tests to make sure that their employees are free of illegal intoxicating substances.

Market Dynamics 

Increasing consumption of alcohol resulting in road accidents is leading breathalyzer and drug testing equipment market in recent years and is expected to increase over the forecast period. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every day 29 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver, this is one death every 50 minutes and annual cost of alcohol-related crashes totals more than $44 billion.

Favorable government initiatives are also boosting breathalyzer market over the forecast period. For instance, on September 28, 2018, WHO initiated the SAFER program to support governments in taking practical steps to accelerate progress on health through addressing the harmful use of alcohol, and achieve development targets.

Constant innovation leading to the ease of portability of the breathalyzers along with lowering prices, increasing the requirement of these devices in monitoring drugs, asthma, and other diseases are boosting the demand for breathalyzer equipment over the forecast period.

However, improper diagnosis and accuracy are hampering the global breathalyzer and drug testing equipment market over the forecast period.

Market Segmentation 

Based on application global breathalyzer is segmented into alcohol detection, drug detection, asthma detection, and tuberculosis detection. Alcohol segment held the highest share in 2018 and is expected to continue over the forecast period. According to Alcohol Detection in Real-Time To Prevent Drunken Driving survey by K J Somaiya Institute of Management Studies and Research in 2015, in United States, nearly 1.1 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics which shows the usage of breathalyzers in alcohol level detection. Asthma detection holds the second largest segment due to the increased number of asthma patients. According to Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America in 2017, asthma is the third-ranking cause of hospitalization among children younger than 15.

Based on device type global breathalyzer and drug testing equipment market is categorized into semiconductor oxide breathalyzers, fuel cell breathalyzer, and spectrophotometer breathalyzers. Spectrophotometer breathalyzers are dominating the breathalyzer market due to more accuracy and identify specific molecules by the way they react to infrared light.

Based on end-user global breathalyzer and drug testing equipment is segmented into federal departments, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and private sectors.

Geographical Analysis 

The global Breathalyzer and Drug Testing Equipment market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East and Africa. 

North America held the highest market share in 2018 and is anticipated to remain same over the forecast period due to increasing number of accidents and awareness programs. Every year U.S organizes campaigns such as Mothers against Drunk Driving, Support Our Heroes, Sober to Start, Secure the Future to bring awareness among people regarding road accidents due to alcohol consumption. 

Europe accounted for the second-largest market in global Breathalyzer market. According to European Transport Safety Council in 2018, in Germany, the number of people died in traffic accidents due to drinking came down to 7% in 2016 from 11.8% in 2006 due to stricter penalties introduced in 2008 including arresting drivers caught with an alcohol level of over 1.1g/l.

Asia Pacific is registering fastest CAGR over the forecast period due to an increase in a number of manufactures and suppliers, government awareness in countries such as Japan, India, and China.
