GIA (Global Industry Analysts) announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Breath Analyzers market. World breath analyzers market is forecast to reach US$100 million by the year 2015. Post recession recovery will be supported by rising end-user spending, steady rebuilding of business confidence index, and rise in voluntary corporate alcohol & drug testing policies.

Transportation companies are the largest users of workplace breath alcohol testing equipment. All federally regulated transportation industries worldwide have regulatory riders, which provides a blue print for workplace breath alcohol testing procedures for drivers. In the United States, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) requires transportation companies to conduct mandatory onsite employee screening. Manufacturing, and construction companies are also increasingly wielding the iron fist on substance abusers. Onsite testing of employees in factories prior to handling heavy equipment is becoming the norm in several countries across the globe, given the complications and costs associated with lawsuits following alcohol related accidents. Growing emphasis on preventing alcohol abuse at the workplace, together with the regulatory impetus offered by acts such as the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 in the US, will continue to drive demand for alcohol breath analyzers. Employee screening for substance abuse in the upcoming years is poised to evolve into a voluntary good business practice unlike the current scenario where such corporate programs are drafted only under obligatory compliance with the act.
