Breath analyzers by examining the exhaled air will help in identifying the compounds that were inside the human body, such as detection of alcohol, drugs, tuberculosis, asthma and other diseases. Semiconductor oxide, fuel cell and spectrophotometer are the three basic kinds of breath analyzers widely used across the world. Although semiconductor oxide breath analyzers work at low cost and low power, they offer results less accurately than the fuel cell devices. A special sensor for ethanol is integrated with these devices to detect the levels of alcohol and others. However, there are also chances for wrong reading when exposed to acetones and few metabolites. Fuel cell devices include electrochemical reactions that use chemicals to oxidise alcohol in the exhaled breath, which will be used to create an electric current. Higher the level of alcohol, larger will be the electric current. Spectrophotometry involves the use of infrared light to identify the strange molecules and are not susceptible to the wrong readings like the other semiconductor devices used for testing. However, fuel cell breath analyzers can give accurate results under controlled conditions, making them a prime choice compared to the large and expensive spectrophotometry devices. These devices are highly helpful in identifying the people that are drunk and restrict them from entering social gatherings and work premises.
The rise in the intake of alcohol, strict government rules for controlling the over-consumption of alcohol and drugs use, increasing demand from law enforcement bureaus and various other institutions like sports, colleges and offices are few principal factors promoting the growth of this market. Furthermore, the need for easy diagnostics for diseases like asthma, pulmonary disease and others is also driving the market for breath analyzers. On the other hand, the expenses involved in the setup of the spectrophotometer devices and vagueness about the results are impeding the market growth. The global market for breath analyzers is predicted to witness a CAGR of approximately 28% over the forecast duration of 2017e to 2024f.
Based on the regional analysis, Americas region is categorized as North America and Latin America.
