Global $4.7 Bn Alcohol Testing and Drug Testing Market, 2019-2025 – Markets are Poised to Achieve Significant Growth as Law Enforcement and Companies Test for Substance Abuse

DUBLIN, March 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The “Alcohol Testing and Drug Testing: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2019-2025” report from Wintergreen Research, Inc has been added to’s offering.

Consideration of Alcohol Testers and Drug Tester equipment Market Forecasts indicates that markets at $1.6 billion will reach $4.7 billion by 2025.

Growth comes as businesses and law enforcement agencies crack down on abuse of alcohol and drugs. Worldwide markets are poised to achieve significant growth as law enforcement and companies test for substance abuse.

Alcohol abuse and drug abuse represent a significant danger to society. Most users are benign but the risk to society from drunk driving and workplace accidents demand that some controls be put in place. The reality is that drug and alcohol users kill people as they get behind a wheel and drive and as they let anger boil over into killing rage.

Not all users are killers surely, but there is a need for society to control abuse for the common good. These controls are likely to be put more in place going forward as the dangers are more commonly recognized and as the ability to detect users becomes more available at an affordable price.

Alternatives to bars are emerging. Sports clubs have sprung up all over, creating clubs where people can meet and interact without going to a bar. The fact that alternative socialization venues exist is making it easier to enforce laws against drinking and driving. Alcohol-related accidents kill someone every 31 minutes and injure someone every 2 minutes in the US.

Alcohol and drugs cause serious disruption to the workforce when present among employees. Breath and saliva contain markers that can be used to monitor alcohol abuse, drug abuse, and the health status of patients.

In the U.S. nearly half of road accidents are estimated to occur due to excessive alcohol consumption and drug abuse. Similarly, the number of deaths soared by 26% in Britain due to drunk driving in 2012. Thus, alcohol enforcement remains a priority for governments across the globe. Governments of various countries are strictly enforcing safety laws and are heavily emphasizing on work safety issues. Moreover, they are compelling organizations, vehicle owners and others to install portable breath analyzers at their workplaces.

Law enforcement use of breathalyzers is helping decrease the number of accidents. For employers, alcohol abuse accounts for two-thirds of all substance abuse complaints and depletes a similar percentage from the health care benefit budgets of American companies.
