Global Breath Analyzers Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global breath analyzers market size is predicted to grow USD 1362.8 million by 2027 from USD 932.7 million in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 7.88% during the forecast period.

A Breath Analyzer is a device used for measuring alcohol levels in the blood by analyzing a person's breath. Generally, two Breath Analyzers are differentiated by their size, such as small analyzers, which can be easily held in hands. However, these are not reliable enough to provide evidence in court but can be used to arrest the person. Then the alcohol levels are again measured in police with a large analyzer to submit the proof in court. The different types of sensors used in Breath Analyzers are fuel cell, infrared spectroscopy, semiconductor, photovoltaic assay.


The key factor that boosts the growth of the global breath analyzers market is the stringent implementation of the law to control drunken driving cases.

The increasing rate of road accident cases, mainly due to alcohol consumption at high levels, is another major factor that is fuelling the growth of the Breath Analyzers market. In addition, the rising prevalence of asthma and tuberculosis leads to an increase in the adoption of Breath Analyzers for medical purposes, which boosts the growth of the global breath analyzers market.

Steadily increasing the adoption rate of breath analyzers is supposed to create lucrative growth opportunities for the growth of the Global Breath Analyzers market. In addition, increasing focus on initiatives from the private and public organizations for developing nanotechnology products that can be integrated with medical devices is presumed to be offering growth opportunities for the market. Furthermore, increasing healthcare expenditure and focus on medical tourism in developing countries of the Middle East and Africa and increasing the requirement of these medical devices to tap potential are likely to boost the demand of the global breath analyzers market and increase growth opportunities for the key players in the future. 


Inaccuracies in breath analyzer devices are expected to restrain the growth of the breath analyzers market across the world. Breath Analyzers are highly expensive, leading to inadequate adoption of Breath Analyzers, especially in developing countries. Budget constraints are likely to slow down the growth rate of the global breath analyzers market during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global breast analyzers market:

The sudden eruption of COVID-19 has defeated many lives and businesses on a striking scale. The crisis has caused significant disturbances to companies and economic activities worldwide. Various governments worldwide have provided rules and regulations to postpone or holdup non-essential medical and surgical procedures to diminish the stress on the healthcare system and reduce disease communication. The COVID-19 imposed a positive influence on the breath analyzers market. The breath analyzers are used to detect the patients suffering from COVID-19.

This research report on the global breath analyzers market has been segmented and sub-segmented based on product type, application, technology, end-user, and region.

Breath Analyzers Market - By Product Type:

  • Portable Devices
  • Non-Portable Devices

Based on product type, the portable device segment is expected to account for the leading share in the global market during the forecast period. An alcohol sensor that police carry with them is known as a portable breath test and asks a driver to blow into a machine, which quickly reveals whether or not the driver has consumed alcohol. However, for a portable breath test, there are specific requirements that must be met.

Breath Analyzers Market - By Application:

  • Drug Abuse Detection
  • Alcohol Detection
  • Medical Applications

Based on the application, the alcohol detection segment contributes significantly to the global breath analyzers market. The medical application segment provides a substantial share of the market and is likely to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period due to the availability of advanced technologies.

Breath Analyzers Market - By Technology:

  • Fuel Cell Technology
  • Semiconductor Oxide Sensor Technology
  • Infrared Spectroscopy
  • Other Technologies

Based on the technology, the market for breath analyzers with fuel cells technology segment is forecasted to occupy the biggest proportion of the global market. In breath analyzers, fuel cells are the most commonly utilized technology. Breath analyzers based on fuel cells have a high level of accuracy, sensitivity, and reliability. They are designed to identify alcohol precisely and do not require many sensors. These analyzers are regarded as the gold standard of handheld alcohol testing for both personal and professional usage. Furthermore, semiconductor sensor technology allows for the development of low-cost breath alcohol screening devices for personal use. However, due to their high cost and enormous size, breath analyzers using infrared spectroscopy are presently only used by law enforcement organizations.

Breath Analyzers Market - By End-user:

  • Government and Private Offices
  • International and National Transport Systems
  • Diagnostic Centres
  • Rehabilitation Centres

Based on end-user, the Government and private offices segment held the highest proportion of the global market in 2020. The deployment of breath analyzers in law enforcement is driven by strict safety rules against DUI and the growing size of screening and evidential testing.

Breath Analyzers Market - By Region:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia-Pacific
  • Latin America
  • The Middle East and Africa

Geographically, The breath analyzers market in North America is contributing a significant share of revenues. It is expected to expand further during the forecast period due to accidents at a high rate and government bodies' intensified focus to control road accidents. Because of favorable government efforts and an increase in drink-driving incidents, North America had a large market share over the forecast period. Another benefit for market development is the presence of key players. The development in this region is mostly attributable to favorable government efforts, increased awareness, and increased demand for alcohol testing equipment to reduce the risk of alcohol-related accidents. In addition, various technical advances, such as the development of product variations that can be connected to Bluetooth for personal tracking and analyzers equipped with fuel cell and semiconductor sensor technologies to offer more precise results, are expected to propel the market forward in this region.

The breath analyzers market in Europe is another major contributor to the breath analyzers market, and the Asia Pacific market is growing at a high pace. This trend is likely to continue due to the availability of manufacturers that offer breath analyzers at low cost, increasing awareness regarding the breath analyzers among people, and an increasing percentage of people using bikes and cars in the region. Therefore, the breath analyzer industry is heavily influenced by Europe in the coming years. Due to the availability of low-cost breathalyzers from manufacturers, greater public awareness of breath analyzers, and a growing number of people in the region riding bikes and driving vehicles, this trend is expected to continue.

The breath analyzers market in Asia Pacific has the second-largest share in the market and is predicted to grow the most. Growing alcohol consumption increased research on the medical uses of breathalyzers, and the development of advanced breath analyzers are among the key drivers driving the Asia Pacific market growth. Because of the large number of cars in India, China, and Japan, breath analyzers have a strong market position. In addition, law enforcement agencies in these nations have included standard rules for traffic and driving conditions in these areas due to stringent laws. Growing alcohol consumption increased research on the medical uses of breathalyzers, and the development of advanced breath analyzers are among the main drivers driving the Asia-Pacific market's growth.

The Breath Analyzers Market in Latin America is estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period.

The Breath Analyzers Market in Middle East & Africa is predicted to be growing at a CAGR of 8.01% during the forecast period.
