Government Initiatives for Workplace Drug Testing Driving Demand 

According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, more than 115 US citizens die as a result of opioid overdose every day. The country has been taking vigorous efforts to curtail this growing concern and consequently, the demand for equipment and instruments that can test the presence of drugs of abuse is increasing. Similar adoption is also being noticed in some of the European regions including the U.K., France, and Germany. Governments in these countries are also encouraging the corporate sectors to provide for work place drug tests in order to hold the escalating percentage of drug addicts. The mushrooming of diagnostic laboratories, improving healthcare infrastructure in several emerging economies, and prevalent demand for prohibited drugs are some of the other factors augmenting the demand in the global drugs of abuse testing market.
