March 17, 2023 | Healthcare

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Drug Screening Market Report by Product and Service (Equipment, Rapid Testing Devices, Consumables, Laboratory Services), Sample Type (Urine Samples, Breath Samples, Oral Fluid Samples, Hair Samples, and Others), End User (Hospitals, Drug Testing Laboratories, Workplaces, Drug Treatment Centers, Pain Management Centers, Personal Users, Criminal Justice System and Law Enforcement Agencies), and Region 2024-2032," the global drug screening market reached a value of US$ 6.4 Billion in 2023. A drug screening or a drug test is the collection and analysis of blood, hair, urine, or saliva to detect the presence of chemicals and contaminants in the body due to drug consumption or use. It is also used to detect performance-improving drugs, such as steroids and HGH, which are sometimes used by athletes. There are different types of drug screening, such as urine drug screening, saliva drug screening, blood drug screening, and hair testing. Various corporates also conduct it to ensure a safe workplace for the employees. Its primary applications are employers screening for drugs prohibited by law and police officers testing for the presence and concentration of alcohol in the blood. Drug detection depends upon various factors, such as age, amount and frequency of use, body mass, drug class, metabolic rate, overall health, and urine pH.

Global Drug Screening Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by the increasing incidences of illegal drugs consumptions. In line with this, the rising prevalence of drug addiction and the growing crime rates associated with drug abuse are significantly contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, various stringent regulations by government agencies mandating alcohol and drug screening for safety purposes are positively influencing the market. Apart from this, the growing initiatives by the governments to monitor and combat substance abuse are creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the increasing alcohol use among adolescents and the senior population, overuse of prescribed pharmaceuticals, and the growing use of opioids and illegal drugs are catalyzing the market. Besides, the rapid adoption of drug screening products and services on the road to avoid drink-and-drive cases is propelling the market. Some of the other factors driving the market include the escalating road accidents due to overdose of drugs, continual product launches and services, and the increasingly unlawful use of steroids by professional athletes. On account of the factors above, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 11.7 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.7% during 2024-2032.
