Published Date : Nov 2020 | No. of Pages : 200 Pages | Category : Healthcare

According to Vision Research Reports, the global roadside drug testing devices market size was valued at US$ 660 Mn in 2020 and expected to surpass around US$ 930 million by 2028 with a CAGR of 4.2% from 2021 to 2028.

Increase in the number of drug and alcohol abusers and adoption of rapid test devices for screening or identification of drug and alcohol are anticipated to drive the global roadside drug testing devices market during the forecast period.

Roadside drug testing devices have already been adopted by the police force, with the introduction of a large number of new breathalyzer devices

Recent advancements by providers of drug, alcohol, and disease-testing products offer police with a robust set of roadside testing tools for the detection of alcohol and drug classes such as amphetamine, benzodiazepines, cannabis (THC), cocaine, methamphetamine, and opiates.

Increase in the burden of drug and alcohol abuse and technological advancements have resulted in the adoption of portable roadside drug testing devices. Thus, rise in the demand for portable or handheld roadside drug testing devices is expected to propel the global roadside drug testing devices market during the forecast period.

Large Target Population

  • Increase in the number of drug and alcohol abusers across the world is expected to provide significant opportunities to test providers and manufacturers of drug abuse test products in the near future. According to the United Nations Office of Drug and Crime, over 5% of the global population aged between 15 and 64 years uses illicit drugs. Moreover, nearly 32.4 million people worldwide use pharmaceutical opioids and opiates such as opium or heroin.
  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 4.7% of people aged 16 years or above in the U.S. are reported to be driving under the influence of marijuana and 0.9% are reported to be driving under the influence of illicit drugs other than marijuana.
  • Rise in target population and increase in government initiatives to control road accidents and fatalities in various countries are likely to drive the global roadside drug testing devices market during the forecast period

Inaccurate Results to Hamper Roadside Drug Testing Devices Market

  • Concerns about the efficacy and efficiency of roadside drug testing devices have increased over the last few years. For instance, in a study, which included over 300 Norway-based drivers who were tested for impairment by using both the oral device as well as the blood sample, it was found that the ratio of false-positive results generated by the device to findings of the blood sample was 14.5% for cannabis and 87.1% for cocaine.
  • Inaccurate results (false-positive or false-negative results) associated with roadside drug testing devices are projected to restrain the global roadside drug testing devices market during the forecast period

Stringent Law Enforcement to Drive Adoption of Advanced Roadside Drug Testing Devices

Drug-impaired driving has emerged as a major public health issue. Alcohol and psychoactive drugs affect an individual’s ability to drive a motor vehicle safely. Increase in number of drug and alcohol abusers across the world presents significant opportunities for the test providers and manufacturers of drug abuse test products. According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drugs create an economic burden of nearly US$ 740 Bn in the U.S. in terms of related costs, lost work productivity, and healthcare. Technological advancements related to sample collection and efforts of manufacturers to create easy-to-use disposable test kits are expected to increase the demand for drug abuse testing products. Manufacturers focus on using samples other than urine such as sweat and hair, which are less embarrassing for individuals tested for drug abuse. Manufacturers also focus on development of rapid tests that provide faster results, are easy to use, and affordable compared to the tests conducted in laboratories.

Devices for Testing Alcohol Abuse to Witness High Demand

In terms of substance, the alcohol segment held major share of the global roadside drug testing devices market in 2020. The segment is projected to dominate the global market during the forecast period. The alcohol segment is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 4.2% from 2020 to 2028. Rise in consumption of alcohol and increase in incidence of driving under the influence of alcohol accelerate the growth of the global roadside drug testing devices market. Moreover, increase in approvals of roadside drug testing devices and rise in the impact of alcohol abuse on public health contribute to the growth of the global market.

Breath Analyzers to Lead Global Market

Based on sample type, the others segment, which includes breath, hair, and blood, accounted for significant share of the global roadside drug testing devices market in 2020. The segment is expected to expand at a moderate CAGR during the forecast period. Breath is the most common sample used for the detection of alcohol. Alcohol is the most widely used substance of abuse among drivers. According to data provided by the European DRUID project, alcohol is used by 3.48% drivers, illicit drugs by 1.90%, medicinal drugs by 1.36%, drug-drug combination by 0.39%, and alcohol-drug combination by 0.37%. The saliva segment is likely to witness strong growth during the forecast period. Roadside oral fluid or saliva testing is primarily being used in several countries to detect the presence of drugs. Countries such as Germany, Belgium, France, and Australia use saliva testing for identification of individuals driving under the influence of drugs (DUID).

Prominent Regions

North America held major share of the global roadside drug testing devices market in 2020. The market in the region is driven by presence of key players, high prevalence of driving under the influence of alcohol & illicit drugs, and growth strategies adopted by market players, including product approvals and launch, mergers, and acquisitions.

Growth of the roadside drug testing devices market in the region can be attributed to rise in cases of driving under the influence of alcohol and increase in government initiatives to control road accidents & fatalities in various countries in Europe. Asia Pacific accounted for significant share of the global roadside drug testing devices market in 2020. The market in the region is projected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period. According to various studies, alcohol consumption is rising across Asia Pacific. Heavy episodic (binge) alcohol use has increased significantly in China, Thailand, Timor-Leste, and Vietnam. Rise in use of alcohol and other illicit drugs in the region is anticipated to drive the market in Asia Pacific during the forecast period. Moreover, implementation of strict driving laws in different countries in Asia Pacific can be attributed to the growth of the market in the region.

Roadside Drug Testing Devices Market: Key Players

Key players focus on strengthening their positions in the global roadside drug testing devices market. Rise in road fatalities due to drug-impaired driving has led to adoption of strict laws and regulations in several countries. This presents lucrative opportunities to key players to increase their share in the roadside drug testing devices market. Manufacturers are adopting strategies such as acquisitions, collaborations, and distribution to increase share in the global roadside drug testing devices market. In August 2019, Abbott and Intoximeters signed an agreement according to which, Intoximeters will market Abbott's SoToxa Mobile Test System (a handheld oral fluid roadside testing solution that rapidly and reliably detects recent drug use) along with its Alco-Sensor brand breath alcohol-testing products. This agreement will aid law enforcement agencies in their efforts to reduce the rate of drug driving, which has become a serious road safety issue.
