Hydrogen breath test analysis are highly specific and sensitive diagnostic tool being employed by gastroenterologist either to confirm or eliminate the possibility of carbohydrate malabsorption or short intestinal bacterial overgrowth. Due to recent technological advancement associated with the development of electrochemical and solid state sensors they are gradually replacing conventional diagnostic methods used earlier to diagnose functional gastrointestinal disorders.
Portable analyzers are dominating the type segment for hydrogen breath test analyzer market. Popularity among gastroenterologist and excellent ergonomic design drive the market growth for portable analyzers. Handheld analyzers are gaining traction on account of its inherent features such as compactness, user friendly interface and quick analysis of exhaled air.
Electrochemical sensors are reigning the sensor segment for hydrogen breath test analyzer market. Recent development in the generation of breathprints containing chemical markers, high precision and sensitivity and low power consumption drive the market growth for electrochemical sensors. Solid state sensors works on the principle of reaction between the analyte in exhaled air and sensor material is transduced as an electrical signal due to change in potential, conductance or capacitance of the active element.
North America with a share of 37% is the leading regional segment for hydrogen breath test analyzer market. The chief factors corroborated with its market growth are rising prevalence of carbohydrate malabsorption and existence of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure. Domicile of key players such as Healius Limited, Metabolic Solutions, Inc., and MD Diagnostics Ltd. further consolidate the market growth in North America region. Europe accounts for 33% share due to significant rise in patients diagnosed with short intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) disorder and strategic collaboration between academic research and medical device manufacturers to develop excellent ergonomic features of breath analyzers. Asia Pacific represents 10% share and will be the fastest growing market owing to large patient pool suffering with lactose malabsorption and rising public health awareness regarding gastrointestinal disorders.
Medical device manufacturers specializing in manufacturing hydrogen breath test analyzers are Bedfont Scientific Ltd., Breathe E-Z Systems, Inc., Commonwealth Diagnostics International, Inc., Healius Limited, MD Diagnostics Ltd., LABORIE, FAN GmbH, Metabolic Solutions, Inc. and QuinTron Instrument Company, Inc.
