Growing drug and alcohol consumption is driving the growth of the drug screening market. Drug addiction is a disease that affects a person’s brain and behavior, resulting in the inability to control the use of a legal or illegal drug or medication. Substances such as alcohol, marijuana, and nicotine also are considered drugs. As the drug and alcohol addiction increases, the chances of disease are higher which triggers the need for drug screening.
For instance, in June 2019 & 2020, according to a report published by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), 35 million people globally suffer from drug use disorders and require treatment services. The severity and complexity of the world drug situation are increasing, revealing that the number of people who use drugs is now 30% higher than in 2009. The pandemic effects also ramp up drug risks, as cannabis intake by youth had increased by as much as four times in parts of the world. Therefore, growing drug and alcohol consumption is driving the growth of the drug screening market.
The development of innovative products is a key trend gaining popularity in the drug screening market. Major companies operating in the drug screening market are focusing on providing innovative products to meet fast-growing industry demand and strengthen their market position. Additionally, due to COVID, there was a sudden change in the drug screening approach, which changed the screening methodologies and pushed the innovation and new product development by companies.
Companies are striving to develop new products such as a new drug test that is more effective and can be widely used by laboratories.

Named CEDIA Mitragynine (Kratom) Assay, it can be performed on widely used clinical chemistry analyzers, allowing a wide range of laboratories to test for the presence of Kratom. This test is only for use in criminal justice and forensics.
