The global drug of abuse testing market is likely to be driven by the growing awareness about drug of abuse testing and the growing use of illicit drugs all over the world. The increasing number of youth consumers falling prey to addictive substances has led to growing government participation in the drug of abuse testing market. Most governments in the world have come up with and enforce strict drug monitoring policies, which requires large-scale use of drug of abuse testing equipment. This is likely to remain the major driver for the global drug of abuse testing market over the forecast period due to the increasing sophistication of government efforts to fight growing drug usage.

The increasing development of technologically refined, small, portable drug of abuse testing devices is likely to be a major driver for the global drug of abuse testing market over the forecast period. Increasing concern about drug usage among parents has led to an increasing demand for home kits that can be used by parents or other guardians to check whether their ward has consumed drugs. However, while drug of abuse testing equipment can indicate whether an individual has consumed the drug within a specific timeframe, they can’t reveal addiction patterns. This is likely to be a key restraint against the global drugs of abuse testing market over the forecast period.
