Increasing R&D investments for inventing different preventive methods, technological advances, and funding towards healthcare infrastructure, along with ongoing research projects, provide lucrative growth opportunities to the Global Specimen Validity Test Market
Creating a powerful tool to help confront denial and more effective drug monitoring clinical tools has improved reliance on specimen validity test (SVT)
Rising drug consumption rates across multiple age groups, increasing the need for effective drug monitoring tools, are fostering remarkable progress in global specimen validity test market.
Advantages of SVT in healthcare, such as improved therapeutic decisions in medication and illicit drug use over traditional testing tools, are encouraging the adoption of specimen validity testing. These factors are collectively influencing the growth of the global specimen validity market. These factors are likely to increase the market revenue close to USD 1.86 billion by 2028, with an annualized growth rate of 5.88% from 2021 to 2028.
A key part of the urine drug tests is specimen validity test that renders veritable data about the reliability and precision of urine drug tests, signifying that the urine psecimen submitted is valid. In addition, the specimen validity test provides scientific results evaluating the improper pill counts, abusive behaviors, clinical symptoms and assists the drug abuse, medication mismanagement, and diversion of prescribed drugs. Specimen validity tests are thus employed extensively across multiple end-user verticals.
Factors such as increasing awareness regarding the benefits of specimen validity tests, rising preferences for workplace drug testing, growing cases of drug abuse, increasing investment for alleviating drug abuse are some significant factors likely to drive the global specimen validity test market.
However, suspicion amongst screening professionals, the presence of alternative tools for drug screening, fraudulent methods causing false negatives are likely to hamper the global specimen validity test market.
Furthermore, the rising drug abuse cases across the world, accelerating foreign travel, cross migrations are increasing the need for manufacturing more specimen validity tests.
