Global Drug of Abuse Testing Market – Regional Analysis
In North America, the usage of cocaine has been declining since 2006, partly due to a sustained shortage. However, more recently, a slight increase in prevalence of cocaine has been observed in the U.S., as there has been an increase in maritime seizures.
In Europe, cannabis is by far the most commonly consumed illicit substance, with an estimated 24 million users (4.3% of those aged 15 years to 64 years), followed by cocaine with 3.7 million users in 2013.
In Europe, the market has changed over the past decade, with cannabis herb produced locally or regionally now gaining ground over cannabis resin, largely sourced from Morocco, which previously was the dominant cannabis substance in Europe.
It appears that the flow of heroin along the long-established Balkan route, from Afghanistan to Western and Central Europe via Iran and Turkey, has declined in recent years. Some of the factors contributing to the decline in seizures along this route include the success of law enforcement authorities in key transit countries and a decline in demand in the destination market.
