A breath analyzer measures the blood alcohol content (BAC) from a breath sample. This devices do not require blood samples to measure the alcohol content. Instead, the blood alcohol estimation or analysis can be done by breath sample only. Breath analyzers are widely used by the police to test whether a driver has drunk too much alcohol. It can also be used for the detection of drugs and alcohol, and diseases such as asthma, tuberculosis, and other respiratory diseases.
The North American breath analyzer market has seen enormous growth owing to its important use to maintain order, safety, and discipline amongst the population. Increasing alcohol consumption in NA economies such as Canada and the United States is major factor behind the growth of the market. For instance, according to CDC, in the US, in 2018, two-thirds (66.3%) of adults aged 18 and over consumed alcohol. Among these 5.1% adults were engaged in heavy drinking. And alcohol is by far the most common drug used by Canadians and use has increased significantly among females since 2013. Canada has the worst rate of drunk-driving deaths in the developed world. Every year with an approximately 1,500 mortalities, drunk-driving death is Canada’s major cause of criminal death. Therefore, increasing demand for breath analyzers to detect the alcohol content and introduction of several stringent government regulations is improving the growth of the market in NA region.
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 North America economies, international trade, business investments, GDP and marketing strategies of key players present in the market. Increasing research and development activities across the region during COVID-19 period and rising focus on to develop coronavirus breath analyzer is positively affected the market growth.
The study analyses North America breath analyzer market based on technology, application, end user and country.
Various technologies such as fuel cell, semiconductor oxide sensor, and infrared (IR) spectroscopy are covered in the North America breath analyzer market report. Fuel cell technology based breath analyzers segment is witnessing fastest growth of the market. This analyzer use fuel cell sensors that depend on an electrochemical process which oxidizes the alcohol in a breath sample and generates an electrical current that the breath analyzer measures to determine the blood alcohol content. The fuel cell based breath analyzer remains the most extensive and reliable electrochemical device, for the detection of alcohol owing to its essential advantages such as rapid detection, portability, sensitivity acceptable accuracy, and selectivity.
The market finds its applications in alcohol detection, drug abuse detection, medical applications and others. The alcohol detection segment dominated the market in 2020. However, drug abuse detection segment is expected to witness rapid growth in the coming years. Increasing consumption of drug by young population and rising crime rate, thereby accelerated demand for breath analyzers by law enforcement agencies is major factor attributed to the segment growth.
In addition, surged development and introduction of breath analyzers to detect various types of drugs is further escalating the market growth. For instance, in August 2019, a team from the Department of Chemistry and the Swanson School of Engineering (US) has developed a breath analyzer that can estimate the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive compound in marijuana, in the user's breath.
Based on end user, the market is segmented into law enforcement agencies, enterprises, individuals, and others. The enterprises segment is expected to account for the second-largest market share of the market in the coming years. An increasing demand for breath analyzers from colleges, secondary schools, and universities, hospitals, restaurants and businesses who wish to carry out alcohol consumption screening tests is flourishing the growth of the market.
Country wise, the study is comprised of the key countries such as the US, Canada and Mexico. The US held the largest market share of North America breath analyzer market and is likely to dominate the market over the estimated time frame. The massive presence of various major market players across the region and increasing focus of these manufacturing companies to develop easy to operate, cost effective and highly accurate breath analyzers to gain competitive advantage in the global market is major factor attributed to the market growth.
Growing research and development activities and clinical trials or tests during COVID-19 period to develop coronavirus breath analyzers is further likely to expand market growth. For instance, Canary Health Technologies, announced that it is developing a breath analyzer with disposable nano-sensors using AI-powered cloud-based analysis. The goal is to develop a precise, inexpensive screening tool that can be used anywhere and deliver a result in less than a minute.
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, Alcohol Countermeasure Systems Corporation, EnviteC-Wismar GmbH, Lion Laboratories Ltd, Pas Systems International, Guth Laboratories, Inc, Alcolizer Technology, Alcopro, Inc, Andatech Private Ltd, Alere, C4 development, Advanced Safety Devices and Bedfont Scientific Limited among others.
The study analyses North America breath analyzer market based on technology, application, end user and geography. Various technologies such as fuel cell, semiconductor oxide sensor, and infrared (IR) spectroscopy are covered in the North America breath analyzer market report. The fuel cell segment is likely to dominate the market over the forecast period. Increased adoption of fuel cell based breath analyzers in owing to its several benefits such as is attributed to the market growth. The market finds its applications in alcohol detection, drug abuse detection, medical applications and others. The alcohol detection segment is likely to register fastest growth in years to come owing to the stringent government regulation. Based on end user, the market is segmented into law enforcement agencies, enterprises, individuals, and others. Country wise, the study is comprised of the key countries such as the US, Canada and Mexico.
