Report Ocean has recently published a research study on the global drug screening laboratory services market. The report, titled “Global Drug Screening Laboratory Services Market Size study, by Service Type (Workplace Drug Testing, Clinical Toxicology), by Sample Type (Urine Sample, Oral Fluid Sample, Hair Sample, Others), by End User (Hospital Laboratories, Clinical Laboratories, Others) and Regional Forecasts 2020-2027,” offers a detailed assessment of this market, including individual analyses of each of its segments.
According to the research study, the global drug screening laboratory services market stood at US$6.7 bn in 2019 and is anticipated to rise at a CAGR of more than 9.4% over the period of 2020-2027.
The increasing consumption of drugs and alcohol among young adults has concerned authorities across various economies. As per the World Drug Report, published by United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), approximately 35 million people were suffering from drug use disorders in 2019, globally, while only 1 in 7 people could receive proper diagnosis and treatment. Governments have implemented strict regulations to keep drug and alcohol consumption in check, among which drugs and screening laboratory services take the front seat. On the flip side, the ban on the testing of drugs at the workplace in some countries and the lesser demand across underdeveloped economies may act as a restraint for the growth of the global drug screening laboratory services market over the forecast period, reports the research study.

In terms of the region, the worldwide market for drug screening laboratory services is considered to have a presence across Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Rest of the World. North America is the leading the worldwide market due to the rise in the consumption of alcohol and banned drugs at the workplace. The increase in the government funding for drug testing and the existence of a large pool of market players in the region are likely to support North America in retaining its position in this market during the forecast period.
Europe, among the regional markets for drug screening laboratory services, is reporting a higher growth rate at present and is projected to continue doing so over the forecast period.
