May 15, 2020

As per the report titled ‘Global Roadside Drug Testing Devices Market Size study, by Type (Breathalyzer, Intoxilyzer), by Substances (Drugs, Alcohol), by Sample Type (Saliva, Sweat, Urine, Others), by End-Users (Highway Police, Drug Enforcement Agencies, Others) and Regional Forecasts 2020-2026’ available with Market Study Report LLC, global roadside drug testing devices market was worth USD 999.4 million in 2019 and is predicted to grow with a CAGR of 4% during 2020-2026.

Rising incidences of deaths caused by drink and drive cases along with increase in drug & alcohol intake among youth and geriatric population, overconsumption of prescribed drugs, and stringent laws for drug testing & road safety are driving the growth of worldwide roadside drug testing industry.

Drug testing devices analyze biological samples such as blood, hair, and urine to detect the presence of drug or its metabolites in the body. Various drug and alcohol testing procedures involve rapid analyzer-based tests, laboratory tests, immunoassay reagents, and visual read screening equipment. These testing equipment aid law enforcement authorities to test suspicious drivers for alcohol or drug intake, and quickly get them off road to ensure safety.

According to World Drug Report 2017 by UNODC (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime), almost 29.5 million people suffer from drug use disorders around the world. Similarly, World Drug Report 2019 revealed that the number of individuals with drug use disorders grew to 35 million and claimed that only 1 in 7 people receive treatment, which is expected to accelerate the penetration of roadside drug testing devices in the coming years.

On the other hand, alcohol ban in Islamic countries and restriction of workplace drug testing in some nations are restraining the market growth.

From a regional perspective, North America roadside drug testing devices market is projected to expand substantially through 2026, owing to rise in consumption of illicit drugs and increasing government funding to curb drug abuse in the region.
