Market Overview

The specimen validity testing market studied was anticipated to grow with a CAGR of 6.3%, during the forecast period. The significant factor attributing the market's growth is the growing number of drug abuse populations, rise in the number of drug screening labs. The growing use of illicit drugs is also contributing to the growth of the market. Illegal use of drugs is characterized as the use of heroin, cocaine, marijuana, hallucinogens, inhalants or nonmedical use of prescription psychotherapeutics (stimulants, tranquilizers, and painkillers). As per the data published in 2012 by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), in the past month almost 23 million Americans aged 12 years or older engaged in the use of illicit drugs. This makes up 8.7 percent of the population, making it a serious public health issue in the U.S. Urine drug screening is a clinical method that can improve safety in the hospital, track compliance with treatment by patients, and diagnose abuse of drugs (illicit and legal), as well as diversion of prescription drugs. All these above-mentioned factors will enhance the market growth of specimen validity testing during the forecast period.

Scope of the Report

Urine is perhaps the most widely used specimen for the testing of abuse drugs. This is mainly because urine is easily available in large amounts and includes a significant concentration of metabolites and parental drugs. Therefore, specimen validity testing is conducted on the urine sample for screening to detect drug abuse.
