Impact Analysis of Covid-19

The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.

Breathalyzers are instruments used for testing blood alcohol levels through an individual’s breath. These devices find application in probation departments, police departments, remand homes, and commercial sector.

The global breathalyzers market is estimated to account for US$ 6,384.5 Mn in terms of value in 2020 and is expected to reach US$ 71,866.2 Mn by the end of 2027.

Global Breathalyzers Market: Drivers

High number of deaths due to drink and drive are expected to propel growth of the global breathalyzers market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation, the U.S. recorded 10,511 deaths from drunk-driving crashes in 2018.

Moreover, R&D in use of breathalyzer devices for testing marijuana intake is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the global breathalyzer devices market. For instance, in April 2020, researchers from University of California, Los Angeles, reported development of a mild electrochemical method for the oxidation of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol that is expected to aid in development of an electrochemical-based marijuana breathalyzer.

North America held dominant position in the global breathalyzers market in 2019, accounting for 47.0% share in terms of volume, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific, respectively

Global Breathalyzers Market: Restraints

Breathalyzers are prone to inaccurate analysis, which is expected to hinder growth of the market. One of the potential issues related to the usage of breath testing devices is that these devices tend to detect other substances present in the breath that have structure similar to ethyl alcohol. The devices tend to detect compounds that contain a methyl group structure, which often results in false positive results.

Moreover, breathalyzers are temperature sensitive and give false reading if they are not calibrated or adjusted according to the surrounding air temperature. This in turn is also expected to limit market growth.
