Technological Advancements in Breathalyzers Drive Market Growth and Enhance Road Safety

NEW YORK, April 30, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- News Commentary

The breathalyzer market has experienced significant technological advancements in recent years, driven by improvements in sensor accuracy, portability, and connectivity. Modern breathalyzers now often incorporate fuel cell technology, which provides highly accurate readings and reduces the likelihood of false positives compared to older semiconductor models. The integration of digital capabilities allows these devices to connect with smartphones and other digital platforms, enabling real-time data tracking and sharing. This technological evolution is responding to increasing demands from both law enforcement agencies and individual consumers who seek reliable methods to ensure safety on the roads. And according to data provided by Mordor Intelligence, the Breathalyzers Market size was estimated at USD 2.36 Billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 5.18 Billion by 2029 while growing at a CAGR of 16.95% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

The rising concern over alcohol-related incidents complements the growth of the breathalyzer market. Alcohol consumption can impair cognitive and motor functions, significantly increasing the risk of accidents and fatalities. In the United States alone, alcohol-impaired driving fatalities accounted for 28% of total traffic-related deaths in recent years. These statistics highlight the critical need for effective alcohol monitoring systems to prevent such tragedies. Breathalyzers serve as a preventive tool in both personal and professional spheres, encouraging responsible drinking behaviors and enhancing public safety. The growing societal awareness regarding the dangers associated with alcohol misuse not only supports the market for breathalyzers but also promotes broader initiatives aimed at alcohol education and safe drinking practices.

Cannabix Technologies Inc. (OTC: BLOZF) (CSE: BLO), developer of alcohol and marijuana breathalyzer screening devices for law enforcement and the workplace just announced breaking news that, “it has commenced discussions with Breathalyser Sales & Service Pty Ltd. of Sydney, Australia (“Breathalyser SSP”) for the sales distribution of the Company’s Breath Logix Alcohol screening device (see Figure 1). Breathalyser SSP is a leading distributor of alcohol and drug testing devices for employers and personal use, offering well established alcohol product lines like Draeger and AlcoMeasure for the Australian market with regional offices in Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane. Breathalyser SSP has clients in a range of sectors including mining, oil and gas, industrial, trucking, warehousing and technology. Cannabix will be shipping its Breath Logix Industrial Series device to Breathalyser SSP for evaluation, preliminary marketing and business development purposes.

Ben Smit, Managing Director of Breathalyser Sales & Service Pty Ltd., stated, “We have been impressed with the Cannabix team’s ability to develop the Breath Logix wall mounted device over the last several months. Breathalyser Sales and Service is Australia's oldest distributor and leader in the supply, service & calibration of drug and alcohol testing equipment. We see the Breath Logix Industrial Series fitting into the Australian marketplace well due to is rugged exterior, ease of use and unique cartridge technology. Autonomous employee alcohol screening is a major segment of our business and we welcome innovative products like the Breath Logix device.”

The Breath Logix Industrial Series is a weather resistant device with a host of requested features including patent pending pre-calibrated cartridge technology which will allow site safety administrators to easily maintain their devices, and eliminate the need for costly calibration equipment and time-consuming site visits from technicians for maintenance. This device can be used for pre-access alcohol testing, random testing, start-of-shift testing, pre-employment testing, return-to-work testing and post-incident testing. The device is currently being piloted as a solution for the 24/7 sobriety program which exists in several states.

The Breath Logix Alcohol device automatically checks the sobriety of a user and can take a picture to confirm and record identity while a breath sample is being delivered. Upon detection of positive breath alcohol result, the device will deliver a precise Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) level on the screen, and send a real-time alert via text message, e-mail and to a dedicated web portal. Furthermore, the system logs user BAC for incident reporting and historical investigations. The Breath Logix helps organizations save money by deploying an autonomous alcohol screening device which eliminates the need for dedicated alcohol screening administrators using conventional handheld devices. There is no assurance that evaluators of the Company’s breathalyzer technology will come to terms on distribution or enter into a sales agreement with the Company.”
