Impact Analysis of COVID-19 on the Drug Screening Laboratory Services Market

The novel coronavirus pandemic has had a devastating effect on several industries, including the drug screening laboratory services market. The coronavirus infection is highly communicable. Therefore, to control the spread of infection many hospitals, clinics & nursing homes and institutions have postponed various surgeries, regular appointments, therapies and others. These delayed medical services have adversely affected drug screening laboratory services and have altered needs for laboratory personnel, reagents, and analyzers. Due to lockdowns, the companies have opted for work from home facility for their employees. Hence, the employers are unable to conduct their employees’ drugs and alcohol screening tests. Also, because of shutdown, various drug screening laboratories have either closed or have transformed themselves into COVID-19 testing centers. This has decreased the market share and has hindered the growth of drug screening laboratory services market. Apart from this, other factors such as high unemployment rate, and labor’s migration to their homelands have reduced the workforces in the companies and drug testing and screening centers. This has reduced the drug testing rate and adversely impacted the market growth.

Inclination of People towards Drugs is Projected to Drive Drug Screening Laboratory Services Market

Consumption of drugs among millennials owing to prevalence of anxiety, depression and inferiority complex is expected to drive the market of drugs screening laboratory services in the predicted timeframe. Trend of consuming drugs, alcohols and overdoses of prescribed medicines are increasing at a fast pace. Many people consume drugs and alcohol under the influence of their outer environment and friend circle and soon they become addicted. For instance, according to the news ‘Statistics: Drugs and substance abuse in India’ published in ‘Development Channel’ in 2019, approximately 60 lakh people in India suffer from opioid overuse, and more than 8.5 lakh people inject drugs into themselves and thus are drug addicts. Likewise, according to the World Drug Report 2017, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) estimated that nearly 29.5 million people were affected by drug use disorders all over the world. The drug screening laboratory services plays an important role in conducting tests to measure the amount of drugs and alcohol present in the person’s body. The employers of big organizations regularly conducts drug screening tests for their employees to monitor their health status and maintain a positive and productive working environment. This factor is likely to surge the growth of the market in the forecast time frame.

Various advertisements, campaigns, road shows and skits are organized by the government, local authorities and clubs in the academic institutes that highlights the adverse effects of drug consumption. Owing to this many people have stopped consuming drugs. Thus, this initiative will severely affect the market growth.

Advances in Technology and Testing Methods will Serve Various Opportunities for the Manufacturing Industries in the Market

 Continuous innovation and advancements in the testing methods used for drug testing and screening is expected to provide a boost to the growth of the market in the near future. Currently, urine, blood and hair sample is collected to test if the person has consumed drugs or is a drug addict. These methods measures the level and traces of drugs present in the blood stream of a person. This method is very tiresome and the results take time to come. Therefore, new technique is developed by the companies to make the drug testing process simpler. For instance, according  to an article published in ‘American Addiction Centers’ in February 2021, a new technology ‘paper spray mass spectrometry’ is developed which analyzes the molecules present in a fingerprint. As the person’s body metabolizes drugs, it excretes molecules which can easily be detected in the fingerprints by using paper spray mass spectrometry. This innovation is anticipated to impede the market growth in the coming years.
