The Breathalyzers Market is segmented by Technology, Sample Type, Application, End User, and Geography
Fastest Growing Market:
Technological advancements of breath analyzers, rise in availability of forbidden drugs, increase in emphasis on workplace screening propels the market growth of the breathalyzers, globally. Furthermore, increasing stringent laws for mandatory alcohol testing during driving or in workplaces, increasing alcohol abuse, and government initiations related to alcohol testing also drives the market breathalyzers, globally. However, privacy rights for alcohol testing and accuracy issues are likely to hinder the breathalyzers market, globally.
A breathalyzer is a scientific device that is used to measure the concentration of alcohol in an individual’s bloodstream. The term, breathalyzer, initially refers to a specific scientific instrument that was developed by an inventor named Robert Frank Borkenstein. A breathalyzer works by analyzing a person’s breath to detect the level of alcohol that the individual has in his or her body. As an individual drinks alcoholic beverages, the alcohol is absorbed into the bloodstream through the mouth, the throat, the intestines, and the stomach. When the blood moves through the lungs, alcohol from the blood is passed into the air sacs and breathed out.

The Asia-Pacific is anticipated as the fastest growing segment during the forecast period, owing to the economic instability, unorganized government regulations, increase in availability of illicit drugs and alcohol, rise in drug trafficking, lack of awareness, fewer literacy rates compared to developed countries, presence of more untapped regions, increase in adoption of western lifestyle, etc.
However, local governments are implementing various reforms to control alcohol consumption in APAC countries. According to the article "Impact of alcohol consumption on Asia” published by the Institute of Alcohol Studies, it was reported that most countries in Asia do not have a national policy to reduce alcohol consumption. However, in countries with a predominantly Muslim population, such as Bangladesh, the production, sale, and consumption of alcoholic beverages is prohibited by law. India's constitution declares, "the State shall endeavor to bring about prohibition of the consumption of intoxicating drinks." Even then, since independence in 1947 successive governments have followed different policies on alcohol and currently the central government is encouraging deregulation of alcohol production and liberal imports of alcoholic beverages. The Thai government recently decided to legalize homemade spirit.

People who are addicted to alcohol or who are prescribed with prolonged usage of drugs are more prone to chronic diseases that are prevailing among the global population, which leads to an economic burden on the nation. Hence, governments across the world are actively taking part in various initiatives to create awareness among people regarding prevention, eradication, and early detection of alcohol addiction and drug abuse. However, companies are focusing on new product launches, minimizing the price of the tests in order to gain maximum traction in the market. Furthermore, market players are concentrating on various growth strategies, such as collaborations, acquisitions, and partnerships to enhance their market presence. For instance, In April 2019, Hound Labs, a venture-backed start-up company, has created the first dual marijuana and alcohol breathalyzer. In January 2019, Cannabix Technologies received an initial version of its Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer, a handheld device aimed at measuring THC levels in human breath for use in law enforcement and the workplace.
