The drug screening market size, in terms of value, is expected to reach $6.3 billion by 2019 from $4 billion in 2014, at a CAGR of 9.5%. Major factors driving the growth of this market include high usage of alcohol, prescribed drugs and illicit drugs, growing aging population that leads to increased use of alcohol and prescription drug use, funding by the U.S. federal governments for drug testing, enactment of stringent laws in developed countries, and growing awareness for drug testing in developing nations. However, privacy rights in some countries may hinder the growth of this market. In such countries, drug and alcohol testing may be seen as a violation of an individual’s rights to privacy. Emerging economies such as India, China, and Brazil present an array of opportunities for this market.

North America dominates the drug screening market, with the U.S. accounting for a major market share. However, the Asia-Pacific is poised to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Growth in the Asian market will be driven by factors such as growing number of drug addicts, rising vehicle base in China and India (increased probability of road accidents due to DUI), development of advanced drug and alcohol screening devices in Japan, rising awareness regarding the importance of drug and alcohol screening, and increasing disposable income levels in various countries in Asia.

Prominent players in the drug screening market are Quest Diagnostics (U.S.), Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings (U.S.), Alere, Inc., (U.S.), Roche Diagnostics (Switzerland), Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.), Drägerwerk AG & Co. KGaA (Germany), Siemens Healthcare (Germany), Express Diagnostics Int'l Inc. (U.S.), Shimadzu (Japan), and MPD, Inc. (U.S.).

Drug and alcohol tests are used to examine if a person is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Drug testing looks for traces of drugs in a body using samples of urine, breath, hair, saliva, blood, or sweat. This is a growing market, driven by the high consumption of alcohol and prescribed and illicit drugs, growing aging population that leads to increase in use of alcohol and prescription drug use, funding by the U.S. federal governments for drug testing, enactment of stringent laws in developed countries, growing number of drug tests in pain management centers, and growing awareness of drug testing in developing nations. However, some factors such as privacy rights in some countries may hinder the growth of this market. In such countries, drug and alcohol testing may be seen as a violation of an individual’s rights to privacy.

The drug screening market size, in terms of value, is expected to reach $6.3 billion by 2019 from $4 billion in 2014, growing at a CAGR of 9.5% from 2014 to 2019. This market is segmented on the basis of products and services, sample types, end users, and regions.

On the basis of products and services, the drug screening  market is segmented into equipment, rapid testing devices, consumables, and laboratory services. The equipment market is further segmented into immunoassay analyzers, chromatography instruments, and breath analyzers. The breath analyzers market is further segmented into fuel cell breath analyzers, semiconductor breath analyzers, and other devices.

On the basis of type of sample, the global drug screening market is segmented into urine, breath, saliva, hair, and others (blood and sweat). Based on end users, the market is segmented into workplaces and schools, law enforcement agencies and criminal justice systems, hospitals, pain management centers, drug treatment centers, and drug testing laboratories.
