Substance abuse cases are on the rise, and alcohol is usually among the leading culprits. This has led to a recognizable need for strict, protective laws regarding legal limits and increased the use of alcohol sensors. Commonly known as breathalyzers or breath analyzers, alcohol sensors are used to keep a check on intoxicants present in the body and to ensure the legal limit is not crossed due to the widespread concern regarding drinking and driving. The global alcohol sensors market is expected to grow a CAGR of 13.5% during the forecast period of 2018 to 2027; this has been projected along with other vital market figures in Market Research Future's (MRFR) latest report on the subject. The global alcohol sensors market recorded value of USD 605 Mn in 2017 and is expected to grow to generate revenue which results in an increased value of USD 1985.3 Mn by the end of 2027.
Globalization, urbanization and the resulting increase in disposable income has noticeably changed lifestyles across the globe, and modern socialization activities often involve alcohol consumption. Personal breathalyzers or alcohol sensors are experiencing increased demand due to the importance of preventing people from driving while intoxicated. Easily portable and hygienic, law-enforcement departments have a high consumption of personal alcohol sensors to measure alcohol levels and prevent adverse effects of drunk driving. Healthcare end-users are also adopting personal alcohol sensors for the measurement of blood alcohol levels. Increasing alcohol consumption has resulted in a rise in recorded driving under the influence (DUI), and the number of accidents caused by this on a global scale. The distressing statistics presented by various not-for-profit organizations have led to a recognition of the danger that drinking and driving represent to other drivers and pedestrians. Subsequently, these statistics are encouraging automotive companies to develop alcohol monitoring systems which are integrated into the vehicle itself in an effort to curb the rise of such drinking and driving related accidents.
Notably, the standardization of alcohol sensors is a critical aspect which is expected to hamper market growth. Alcohol sensors use various electrochemical sensors which are highly sensitive to external factors such as humidity, and temperature, among others. This makes accurate measurement challenging as external factors can impact the final result. The accuracy of blood alcohol concentration levels is vital when checking, thus suggesting unreliability of existing alcohol sensors. Technological advancements due to research and development activities are undertaken by market players operating in the global alcohol sensors market have led to the launch of smartphone integrated alcohol sensors which are applicable for iOS and Android operating systems. Additionally, other technological advancements are expected to yield market opportunities in the coming years.
