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.
