At-Home Drug of Abuse (DOA) Testing Rescuing Addicts from the Shadows


Nowadays, drugs are as much a cause for concern as, say, terrorism or global warming. Cannabis, cocaine, heroin…there are so many drugs available across the world and that too with relative ease. What is disheartening is that despite rising awareness and government efforts, the number of drug users doesn’t seem to be falling fast. As per a report published by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the worldwide number of drug users remained almost stable in 2016. All this has resulted in the emergence of drug testing products that help in the effective detection of drugs in users’ body, hence driving the growth of at-home drug of abuse testing market.

The major factors assisting in the growth of the market are rising addiction among teenagers and increased manufacturing and trade of such substances. As per the UNODC report cited above, Afghanistan was the major contributor to global drug production in 2017, where the total opium cultivation area and amount of produce rose rapidly in the past few years. Apart from production, family issues, peer pressure, and reduced self-esteem are resulting in increased drug addiction among teenagers, enhancing the scope for the at-home drug of abuse (DOA) testing market worldwide.

Geographically, the North American continent occupies the largest at-home drug of abuse testing market share, primarily owing to the increasing incidence of drug trafficking and easy availability of these substances in the region. As far as specific drug types are concerned, bath salts and synthetic cannabinoids are the preferred means to get high; therefore, the major players in the domain are specially focusing on these. Companies in the market are coming with innovative products that help in the detection of these particular substances along with other illicit drugs. For instance, UCP Biosciences Inc. announced the launch of its u-Cup DOA testing cups in 2018. It also announced that these would be available in various sizes and shapes.

Some of the other key players in the at-home DOA testing industry are UCP Biosciences Inc., Orient New Life Medical Co. Ltd., Express Diagnostics Int’l Inc., Assure Tech (Hangzhou) Co. Ltd., Psychemedics Corporation, Confirm BioSciences, Phamatech Inc., Home Health (U.K.) Ltd., and Quest Products Inc.
