Cannabis Testing Market Dynamics

An increase in applications of cannabis in the development of medicines such as pain management, an increase in regulatory approval of medical cannabis products, and ongoing research and development activities are driving the global cannabis testing market during the forecast period.

The increasing number of novel product launches and the rising research and development will drive market growth

The global market for cannabis testing is primarily driven by the growing awareness of the therapeutic potential of cannabis. Other factors aiding the market growth are increased awareness regarding cannabis through campaigns, conferences, and workshops. An increase in research and development of a new therapeutic drug for chronic disease by key pharmaceutical players and an increase in the usage of cannabis for recreational and personal use are additionally contributing to the growth of the global cannabis testing market. For instance, in Aug 2022, Restek announced that a single standard THCVA provides high calibration flexibility to target potency analysis in cannabis and hemp. This novel standard and solvent stabilizers provide the labs with more usage over the extended lifetime. That will enable high flexibility for the retention time of calibration.

Various funding, novel technological advancements, and the number of the latest, innovative product launches are increasing, leading to the high demand for cannabis testing. For instance, in Feb 2021, SC Laboratories announced licensing PhytoFacts, a proprietary data visualization tool of Napro Research LLC. Testing cannabis from the lab can provide a visual profile of the chemical makeup of each strain. SC Labs aims to start defining cannabis by its chemometric strain characterization.

The high costs associated with cannabis testing will hamper the market’s growth

However, high costs associated with cannabis testing equipment and stringent government regulations in some parts of the world for cannabis. The FDA hasn’t approved a cannabis marketing application for treating any disease. Using unapproved cannabis products can be unpredictable, leading to critical safety risks.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The pandemic has negatively impacted global financial expectations, operations and crisis response strategy. The COVID-19 outbreak has severely impacted the healthcare industry. The cannabis testing market has experienced huge losses due to COVID, as all the research and clinical trials got affected due to the diversion of attention toward COVID. But now, the market participants are changing their long-term and short-term growth strategies by utilizing the research market and creating cutting-edge items to combat the pandemic. Various initiatives, collaborations and mergers are happening worldwide, boosting the market’s growth. For instance, in Feb 2022, Agilent Technologies announced the acquisition of Virtual Control, an AI software developer providing innovative lab testing analysis solutions and developing advanced artificial intelligence technology. This acquisition will help Agilent integrate ACIES software in GC and MS platforms to enhance the efficacy and productivity of labs.

Cannabis Testing Market Segment Analysis

The instruments segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2023-2030)

The instruments segment is the highest market holder in the global cannabis testing market. The cannabis industry has high importance on mycotoxin analysis and potency testing. Various lab equipment is crucial for cannabis testing. The cannabinoid testing analyzes cannabinoids, potency, residual solvents, terpene profile, and microbial growth. Various instruments are used for testing, including high-performance liquid chromatography for analyzing potency, coupled plasma mass spectrometry for analysis of heavy metals, and pesticide testing with the help of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry. For residual solvent tests, gas chromatography is used.

The instruments segment dominates the market due to the therapeutic properties of cannabis and rising global chronic disease cases. The growing number of regulatory approvals, technological advancements, product launches, and research/clinical trial studies drive the market’s growth. For instance, in Nov 2021, Agilent Technologies announced the launch of Agilent 6560C Ion Mobility LC/Q-TOF, a liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry instrument that will enhance the VWorks automation software suite and novel AssayMAP cartridges with large capacity. This will improve protein and peptide analysis to fasten novel protein-based therapeutic development.
