Alcohol Breathalyzers Market To Reach USD 1,196.9 Million By 2032

Evolution in health and safety sectors, and advancements in devices are driving the alcohol breathalyzers market growth.

Fort Collins, Colorado, Nov. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to DataHorizzon Research, the Alcohol Breathalyzers Market size was valued at USD 559.2 Million in 2022 and is expected to reach a market size of USD 1,196.9 Million by 2032 at a CAGR of 6.7%. 

Product innovation in the breathalyzer industry is driving market growth. Breath-based tests can produce quick and quantitative results, making them helpful in selecting candidates for follow-up diagnostic testing. This screening method is cost-effective and accessible in high-risk environments where contagious infection is a concern.

Alcohol breathalyzers have gained popularity but suffer from accuracy issues that hinder their growth potential. The devices use various techniques, with larger machines providing better estimates than handheld models. However, they can detect other substances with a similar molecular structure, including over 100 compounds in human breath, with 70 to 80 percent containing a methyl group structure. This can lead to incorrect reporting of ethyl alcohol levels.

Dieters, diabetics, and temperature variations can cause false readings in breath machines used to measure acetone and other substances like alcohol. For example, acetone levels can be hundreds or even thousands of times higher in dieters and diabetics compared to others. Breath testers are highly sensitive to temperature and must be adjusted accordingly to avoid false readings. Additionally, an increase of just one degree in body temperature can cause an 8% increase in apparent BAC.
