About Alcohol Breath Analyzers
Alcohol breath analyzers are handheld devices that can accurately detect the BAC of a person from the individual's breath sample. Alcohol breath analyzers use one of the three technologies, to detect the BAC of a person, namely infrared, semiconductor, and fuel cell technology. Law enforcements commonly use these devices to ensure that people do not drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. These devices are also used in the healthcare industry to detect several medical conditions.

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Rise in awareness of alcohol breath analyzers. The growing social concerns over road safety, especially in developing countries such as India is pushing law enforcement agencies to take stringent measures to curb the problem. According to the Global Status Report on Road Safety by WHO, 90% of the fatalities occur in low- and middle-income countries. DUI is a major reason for the high rate of road accidents in low- and middle-income countries. The growing number of road accidents that involve alcohol-impaired drivers are contributing to the rise in the awareness on breath analyzers among end-users such as law enforcement sectors. Road injuries, including fractures, take an enormous toll on an individual's health.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Possibility of inaccurate reading. The inability of portable alcohol breath analyzers to distinguish alcohol from other chemical compounds, which may contain a methyl group structure, may lead to inaccurate results, particularly in those devices that employ semiconductor sensor technology. This problem usually arises from reduced sensor size to make the device more portable.
