Global Security Narcotics detectors Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Security Narcotics detectors are devices used to detect the presence of narcotics. They are important for security purposes, as they can help keep airports, schools, and other public areas safe from drug use.


The global fixed, it's usage and growth factor in security narcotics detectors market size was valued at USD 1.5 billion in 2015. The increasing drug abuse among the youth population is expected to drive the demand for these devices over the forecast period. In addition, government initiatives to control drug abuse are further anticipated to propel industry expansion over the next seven years.


Portable is a device that can be transported from one place to another without being disassembled or put together. It has some significant characteristics, which include the ability to amplify small signals, convert them into larger ones and then reconvert those same signals back into their original form. Portable devices are used for various applications in security narcotics detectors market such as detecting drugs in currency, detection of counterfeit money and detection of hidden compartments in luggage among others.

Application Insights:

The station application segment held the largest share of over 50.0% in 2017. Stationary facilities such as seaports and airports are major drug trafficking routes owing to their strategic importance and high volume of traffic. The presence of a large number of travelers at these locations makes them ideal places for drug traffickers to transport illicit substances through passenger vehicles or on foot. As a result, the use of advanced technologies that can effectively detect suspicious baggage is critical at these points for enhancing overall security measures without compromising with operational efficiency or effectiveness.

Other applications include land border crossings, marine patrolling,.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The U.S., in particular, is a major contributor to the regional market growth owing to high demand for drugs as well as detection equipment from other countries across the region. Europe accounted for over 25% of the overall revenue share in 2017 and is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period due to increasing drug trafficking activities coupled with stringent government regulations regarding security measures implemented at airports and seaports across various countries including Germany, Spain, Italy, France among others.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing security concerns among the general public and businesses
  • Proliferation of narcotic substances, especially synthetic opioids
  • Stringent government regulations and norms for narcotics detection equipment
  • Rising demand for advanced security systems across various industry verticals
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of using narcotics detectors
