DUBAI, U.A.E., Nov. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- As per a detailed study by FMI, the global Drug of Abuse Testing Market size is estimated to total US$ 1.5 Bn in 2021. Introduction of analyzers for multi-drug detection at a single run and implementation of employment medical screening practices are projected to favor the demand in the market. On account of this, the drug of abuse testing market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 5% over the forecast period 2021-2031.
Growing consumption of alcohol and illicit drugs has led to a significant rise in prevalence of substance use disorders across the world. According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), nearly 35 million people are suffering from substance use disorders (SUDs), globally, in 2021. The increasing burden of SUDs is underpinning the importance of adequate testing and abuse detection, which is in turn, propelling the demand for drug of abuse testing systems.
Governments across several countries are adopting various initiatives to monitor and combat substance abuse. For instance, the U.S. Government announced allocating US$ 10 Bn to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to expand access to drug abuse prevention, treatment and recovery services. Through this, they intended to combat the opioid epidemic. Such initiatives are estimated to spur the sales of drug of abuse testing systems by 6.40% year-over-year between 2020 and 2021.
On the basis of end user, forensic laboratories are anticipated to emerge as the dominant segment in the market. Surging demand for accurate testing of individuals consuming illegal substances and illicit drugs is a chief factor driving the growth in the market.
"Launch of novel technologies to detect the use of drugs in real-time and increasing adoption of these systems for on-ground epidemiologic investigations across high-priority areas of concern are expected to fuel demand for drug of abuse testing tools," says a FMI analyst.
