The narcotics scanner market is expected to record a CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period of 2018-2023.

Increasing Need for Immediate Response to Catastrophic Attacks

According to a World Drug Report published by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the number of illicit drug users witnessed an increase of 32.2%, across the world, between 2006 and 2016. This indicates that there exists a crucial need to tackle the ill effects of drugs, on health, development, peace, and security, worldwide.

Various law enforcement agencies, such as Phoenix (Arizona) Police Department, are implementing sophisticated narcotics analysis technologies that are designed to improve the safety and welfare of the communities they protect and serve. With the emergence of cannabinoids (K2, spice), dibutylone, and synthetic cathinones (bath salts) that are visually indistinguishable from one another in the market, there is a dire need to deploy narcotic scanners to restrict the unauthorized movements of drugs.

Asia-Pacific Poised to Record the Fastest Growth

The Asia-Pacific segment is projected to record the fastest growth in the narcotics scanner market, owing to the increasing inflow of investments for the development of the transit sector, particularly airports. The escalation in the production and use of amphetamines and synthetic drugs, in economies, such as China, Singapore, and Vietnam, is anticipated to play a crucial role in the growth of the market studied.

Moreover, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime reported a massive seizure of 287 million methamphetamine tablets in East Asia, which has raised concerns related to excessive usage of drugs in China, Singapore, and Malaysia. These factors are further expected to drive the demand for narcotic scanners, in order to support the prosperity of countries.
