A breath analyzer is also known as Breathalyzer or Breathalyzer. It is an electronics medical device used for measuring blood alcohol content (BAC), or to detect viruses or diseases or several types of meat from a breath sample. It is used to detect diseases such as asthma, tuberculosis, and other diseases related to the respiratory system. The device uses numerous sensing technologies such as alcohol sensors, fuel sensors and others to detect the BAC content. In general, two types of breath analyzer are used such as small-handheld breath analyzers and large breath analyzers.
Growing implementation of stringent rules by the government regarding drink and drive cases is major factor driving the United States breath analyzer market. For instance, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every day, nearby 28 people in the United States die in drunk-driving crashes, which is the one person every 52 minutes. And in 2019, approximately 10,142 people lost their lives. Furthermore, rising prevalence rate of respiratory diseases such as asthma across the country and rising application of breath analyzers in disease detection is likely to improve market growth in the country. According to CDC, in the United States, 1 in 13 people have asthma.
The exclusive COVID 19 impact analysis report by Axiom MRC provides a 3600 analysis of micro and macro-economic factors on the breath analyzer market. In addition, complete analysis of changes on breath analyzer market expenditure, economic and international policies on supply and demand side. The report also studies the impact of pandemic on United States economies, international trade, business investments, GDP and marketing strategies of key players present in the market. Increasing research and development activities across the country during COVID-19 period and rising focus on to develop coronavirus breath analyzer is positively affected the market growth.
The study analyses United States breath analyzer market based on technology, application, and end user.
Various technologies such as fuel cell, semiconductor oxide sensor, and infrared (IR) spectroscopy are covered in the United States breath analyzer market report. The fuel cell technology based breath analyzers are witnessing rapid growth in US breath analyzers market. Fuel cell technology based breath analyzers are based on the oxidation of ethanol to acetaldehyde on an electrode. The current generated is related to the quantity of alcohol present. These fuel cell sensors are extremely stable and usually require calibration every 6 months, and are the type of sensor commonly found in roadside breath testing devices such as breath analyzers.
The market finds its applications in alcohol detection, drug abuse detection, medical applications and others. Alcohol detection segment dominated the market in 2020 and is expected to witness fast growth during the forecast period. Increasing adoption of breath analyzers for roadside breath testing application to detect alcohol level and to prevent death caused by drink and driving is expanding the growth of the segment.
Driving after drinking is very deadly. However it still continues to happen across the United States. According to NHTSA, about one-third of all traffic crash mortalities in the country involve drunk drivers. In 2019, there were 10,142 people killed in these avoidable crashes. In actual fact, on average more than the 10-year period from 2010-2019, over 10,000 people died every year in drunk-driving crashes.
Based on end user, the market is segmented into law enforcement agencies, enterprises, individuals, and others. The law enforcement agencies segment witnessing the fastest growth of the market. However, enterprises segment is likely to observe lucrative growth opportunities in the coming years. Increasing advancements by manufacturers in road safety and breath alcohol testing technology to deliver the most precise testing devices for law enforcement applications such as breath alcohol screening devices, portable, handheld, and desktop evidential instruments is supporting the growth of the segment.
The major key players of market includes Drägerwerk AG & Co. KGaA, MPD, Inc, Lifeloc Technologies, BACtrack, Inc, Quest Products, Inc, Akers Biosciences, Inc, Intoximeter, Inc, AK GlobalTech Corporation, Pas Systems International, Guth Laboratories, Inc, Alcopro, Inc, Alere, and Advanced Safety Devices among others.
