The global drug of abuse testing market is predicted to reach US$ 6.6 Billion by 2027. The use of illicit drugs is increasing across the globe. According to the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) World Drug Report 2021, about 5.5 percent of the population aged between 15 and 64 years have used drugs at least once in the past year, while 36.3 million people, or 13 percent of the total number of persons who use drugs, suffer from drug use disorders. Drugs of abuse testing involves detection of one or more illegal and/or prescribed substances in the urine, blood, saliva, hair, or sweat. The market for drug of abuse testing is driven by strict government norms against illicit drug intake, technological advances in testing equipment, increasing availability of forbidden drugs, and growing emphasis on work place screening among the urban population. On the other hand, legalization of drugs and lack of skilled technicians for drug of abuse testing are a few restraints hampering the growth of the market.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Drug of Abuse Testing Market

The COVID–19 outbreak has become a global stress test. As the number of people infected with the virus continues to rise around the world, uncertainties about global economic growth increases. The COVID–19 disease has infected around 439 Million people worldwide. Globally the death toll has reached 5,984,489 according to the latest statistics from the Worldometers (as of March 2, 2022). The number is still growing, and the duration of the pandemic is still difficult to predict. The reactions to the COVID–19 pandemic and its effects on societies and economies around the world cannot be understated. In the year 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the growth of the drug of abuse testing market, primarily in Europe, Asia and the U.S., by social restrictions and other precautionary measures taken in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Drug trafficking relies heavily on legal trade to camouflage its activities and on individuals being able to distribute drugs to consumers. The measures implemented by Governments to counter the COVID-19 pandemic have thus inevitably affected all aspects of the illegal drug markets, from the production and trafficking of drugs to their consumption.

Hair and Sweat sample type segments are competing very closely with each other to grab maximum share of the pie.

By Drug Type - Global Drug of Abuse Testing Market

This is solely attributable to the growth in the production and consumption of marijuana across the globe. There are currently over 200 million cannabis users worldwide. The opioids segment accounted for the second largest share in 2021. The opioids segment is gaining traction due to its growing consumption among the population. Opioid use disorders affect over 16 million people worldwide. The cocaine segment accounted for third highest share of the global drug of abuse testing market in 2021.
