The market is driven by the growing consumption of alcohol and illicit drugs. In addition, the growing adoption of inorganic growth strategies by vendors is anticipated to boost the growth of the specimen validity testing market.
Globally, the consumption of alcohol and illicit drugs such as opioids, cocaine, amphetamines, and cannabis has significantly increased over the years. In 2017, about 6% of the population, aged between 15-64 years used illicit drugs across the globe. Every year, the consumption of drugs claims about 11-12 million lives worldwide. To counter the increasing incidences of drug addiction and drug abuse, several government, corporate, and law-enforcement agencies are adopting specimen validity testing services. In addition, many governments are also enforcing new regulations and initiating awareness campaigns to control drug abuse practices. These developments are increasing the demand for drug abuse testing and specimen validity testing products and services, leading to the growth of the market.
