SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A breathalyzer measures the amount of alcohol in the air a user breathes out. The device determines the blood alcohol content (BAC). BACtrack S80 Pro is the most commonly used personal breathalyzer.
The market in North America was valued at US$ 4,139.8 Mn in 2018 and is expected to reach US$ 7,307.1 Mn by 2027 at a CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period.
Global Alcohol Breathalyzer and Drug Testing Equipment Market: Drivers
Implementation of stringent laws that govern drink and drive is expected to boost growth of the global alcohol breathalyzer and drug testing equipment market over the forecast period. For instance, in November 2019, Quebec passed a law that requires motorists who have been convicted twice of drunk driving over a ten-year period to install a breathalyzer in their vehicle.
Increasing development of advanced technologies is also expected to boost growth of the market. For instance, in January 2019, Soberlink announced Advanced Reporting, the first use of data analysis to display alcohol monitoring results.

Global Alcohol Breathalyzer and Drug Testing Equipment Market: Opportunities
Increasing R&D in sweat-based BAC estimation is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for market players. For instance, in November 2019, researchers at the University at Albany are reported development of a sensing strip that can detect a person's blood alcohol content (BAC) based on ethanol levels in a small sweat sample.
Increasing advancements in sensors used in breathalyzer is also expected to boost growth of the market. For instance, in January 2018, researchers from Drexel University and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology reported development of a two-dimensional, metallic material called MXene that can be used as a highly sensitive detector of gaseous chemicals.
Global Alcohol Breathalyzer and Drug Testing Equipment Market: Restraints
Increasing product recall is expected to hinder growth of the global alcohol breathalyzer and drug testing equipment market. For instance, in June 2019, BD, recalled blood alcohol testing tubes that were missing the preservative because of a manufacturing issue.
The Alcohol Detection segment held dominant position in the global alcohol breathalyzer and drugs testing equipment market in 2018, accounting for 69.3% share in terms of value, followed by drug detection segment. The growth of the segment is attributed to increasing product launches during the forecast period
The Federal Departments segment held dominant position in the global alcohol breathalyzer and drugs testing equipment market in 2018, accounting for 43.8% share in terms of value, followed by private sector, hospitals, and rehabilitation centers respectively. The growth of the segment is attributed to increasing drug abuse incidences and increasing number of drunk and drive cases and globally.
Key players in the market are focused on launching personal breathalyzer, owing to increasing consumer awareness about the risks involved in drunk driving and stringent laws regarding the same. Major players such as BacTrack and Lifeloc have launched various personal breathalyzers, especially in developing economies such as China during the last two years. These products are comparatively cheaper and are priced below US$ 200 per piece in Asia Pacific.
Key players in the developed market such U.S.-based Alcohoot is focused on developing smartphone-based breathalyzers to capitalize on increasing demand for personal breathalyzers.
United Arab Emirates, in Middle East, has the maximum permissible BAC level at 0.02 for drivers under 21 years of age. License of drivers in this age group found to be driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs would be suspended for one year.
