How Is The Drug Abuse Testing Devices Market Globally?
Until 1980’s, the research and investment in this field was minimal, which resulted in poor technological growth and as a result, urine and oral fluid were the most commonly used samples for drug testing.
Currently, the market is in its growing stage and with drugs such as marijuana becoming legal in many countries, their government has started investing more in drug abuse prevention. For example, the US government spent USD ~ million in the FY’2018 for screening, brief intervention and referral to treatment for drug usage. Globally marijuana, hashish, cocaine and bhang are the most widely used drugs, with an estimated ~ million users (~million to ~million) constituting ~ % of the global population ages 15–64 years. New technologies such as use of eye movements to detect past and current habits of drugs and alcohol consumption are being introduced into the market. The camera will behave very similar to a lie detector by capturing 60 involuntary eye movements per second through a series of true or false questions.
Since this market has a number of substitutes available, the companies in this field are focusing on developing technologies which would make drug testing convenient, increase test accuracy and reduce time taken to provide the results. A number of new samples such as hair and sweat have been introduced for the same purpose. Workplace testing has become popular across the world and companies are also introducing packages for the same. For example, “The Drug Testing Index of Quest Diagnostics” includes a large national representative sample size, longitudinal monitoring and a testing population that is generally a reflective of the US workforce.
How Is Global Drug Abuse Testing Devices Market Segmented?
By Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and LAMEA)
The North American region accounted for the highest market share in terms of revenue by capturing ~% in 2019. USA being the major exporter of these devices. It was followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific and the LAMEA region. The strict laws in the LAMEA region stating death penalties in case of drug consumption has reduced drug intake massively.
Consumables accounted for the maximum share in the global market as these products cannot be used more than once. It was followed by analysers and then the rapid testing devices (urine testing devices and oral fluid testing devices)
By End Users (Criminal Justice Systems, Work Places and Schools, Hospitals, Research Laboratories and Others)
The criminal justice systems had the majority share in the market accounting for a total of ~%. In order to maintain decorum and safety of employees, a number of workplaces have started introducing random drug testing. The research laboratories had the least revenue share as they preferred to use biggest and complex devices for their research. The other end users include sports authorities and custom duties which have also started using these devices extensively.
