There are various technological advancements that have been taking place in the drug of abuse testing that increase sensitivity, reduce consumption of time, and facilitate detection of newly developed designer drugs. The increased use of drug of abuse tests for legal and medical purposes has made it imperative to produce results with high confidence levels. As a result, improvement can be observed in various facets such as chemistry, materials, device and equipment. For instance, smartphone breath analyzers manufactured by BACtrack, Edge Tech Labs and others for measuring breath alcohol content are small in size, portable and can be used to transfer results with the help of wireless technology. Therefore, technological advancements are driving the growth of the global drug of abuse testing market.

The legalization of various drugs is hampering the growth of the drug of abuse testing market. For instance, Oregon and Alaska received full legalization for retail sale and possession of small amounts of marijuana, in November 2014.
