Dublin, Ireland -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/11/2018 -- With emergence of effective breathalyzer technologies, production of breath analyzers is gaining momentum at an impressive pace. Apart from being a key tool for detection in law enforcement agencies, drug rehabilitation centers and general medical settings, breath analyzers are also expected to gain grounds in public & private consumer use. In the next five years, breath analyzers can converge from being medical devices to consumer products. Manufacturers of breath analyzers are exploring new technologies, without disregarding the effective adoption of staple breathalyzer technologies such as electrochemical fuel cell or infrared spectrophotometry. In the view of increasing drug abuse and growing alcoholism culture across the world, breath analyzers will continue to serve the crucial purpose of checking the intoxication levels of vehicle drives and consumers, in general.
Breath analyzers or breathalyzers are portable medical devices that analyze a breath sample and detect the estimated the blood alcohol content (BAC). For detecting the BAC levels, an electric current is produced when the user exhales into the device microcontroller, and the results are revealed through electronic or analog displays.
The Fact.MR report on global market for breath analyzers projects that by the end of 2022, over US$ 800 Mn worth of breath analyzers will be sold across the globe, reflecting a robust CAGR during the forecast period, 2017-2022.

Passive Drunkometers Fail to Gain Traction
Key findings from the report indicate a higher demand for active breath analyzers over passive breath analyzers. Increasing demand for effective readings in law enforcement applications, coupled with easy operability, makes active breath analyzers a top-selling product line in the global market. In 2017, more than two-third of revenues procured from global sales of breath analyzers will be accounted by active breath analyzers. On the other hand, the demand for passive breath analyzers will witness a steady traction, procuring nearly US$ 250 Mn in global revenues by the end of 2022.
Analysis by End-User and Application
The report also predicts that government agencies will remain the largest end-user of breath analyzers in the world. Through 2022, a majority of breath analyzers sold in the world will be used by law enforcement agencies, which are controlled by governments. Increasing expenditure of governments for adoption of such devices will be instrumental in fuelling the growth of global breath analyzer market. The report further anticipates that alcohol detection and drug abuse detection will be the key applications of breath analyzers, procuring nearly two-third of global market revenues throughout the forecast period.
Higher Preference to Electrochemical Fuel Cell Technology
In 2017, over US$ 320 Mn worth of breath analyzers sold in the global market will be developed on electrochemical fuel cell technology. The efficiency on this technology in detecting BAC levels continues to render heavy profits for breath analyzer manufacturers. Through 2022, more than half of the global breath analyzers revenues will be procured from sales of breathalyzers developed on fuel cell technology. The report also expects that semiconductor sensor technology will also gain prominence in terms of demand, but, at a steady pace.
The report has also profiled leading manufacturers of breath analyzers in the global market. Lingraphica, Lifeloc technologies INC, Toby Churchill Limited, Saltillo Corporation, Quest Products INC, Tobii Dynavox, Intoximeters, INC, Prentke Romich Company INC, Dragerwerk AG and AK Global Technology are key companies that will actively partake in the growth of global breath analyzer market during 2017-2022.
