As government initiatives to keep drunk drivers off the roads gather steam, a sizable market for remote breathalyzers is taking shape worldwide. A new report by Transparency Market Research (TMR) studies the opportunity in the remote breathalyzers market both qualitatively and quantitatively. The TMR report is titled, “Remote Breathalyzer Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2016 – 2024.” Recent estimates that alcohol-impaired driving claimed nearly 10,000 lives in 2014. Statistics compiled by MADD also show that crashes involving drunk drivers have injured more than 290,000 people in 2015. These alarming statistics have spurred both lawmakers and law enforcement agencies into action – a factor that will arguably be the biggest driver in the uptake of remote breathalyzers, the report predicts.

Remotely testing the blood alcohol content is a trend that’s finding many takers because it is instant, convenient, and allows time-stamped results to be shared with the required entity. This has helped remote breathalyzers garner much interest for both private and public use. Users can analyze their BAC and share it with their family and friends by simply installing an app enabled to carry out these functions. This has led to the creation of several niches within the remote breathalyzer market, which include but are not limited to: professional use (alcohol abuse monitoring and management), private use (for children and family members), and compliance monitoring (which can include self-testing to obtain verified results).
The opportunity for remote breathalyzers has surfaced on account of on-site blood and urine testing not always being a practical option. A remote breathalyzer displays results based on a chemical reaction between potassium dichromate, sulfuric acid, water, and silver nitrate. The sulfuric acid absorbs the ambient alcohol to change in color from orange/red dichromate ions to green chromium ions. Silver nitrate catalyzes the reaction and the degree of alcohol in the air exhaled by the person undergoing the test is determined based on how drastically the color changes.
By type, remote breathalyzers are segmented as: Fuel cell testers, spectrophotometer testers, and semiconductor oxide-based testers. Likewise, by end use, the report segments the global breathalyzer market into hospitals, security agencies, rehabilitation centers, and home care facilities.
According to the findings of the report, the global remote breathalyzers market will continue to witness high-value opportunities in North America, where law enforcement against drunk driving is stringent. However, the rising number of drunk driving accidents in Asia Pacific and Latin America will lead to a rise in the sales of remote breathalyzers in these regions as well. The report profiles the following leading companies in the global remote breathalyzer market: Alere, Inc., Alcohol Monitoring Systems, Inc., BACtrack, Drägerwerk AG, Andatech Private Limited, Lion Laboratories Limited, Intoximeters, Inc., Quest Diagnostics, Lifeloc Technologies, and Soberlink Healthcare LLC.
