Cannabis Testing Market Overview:

The global cannabis testing market was valued at $1,029 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $2,445 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 11.9%.

Cannabis testing refers to the analysis that an individual sample of cannabis may be examined to determine THC, CBD, and terpene levels as well as for contaminants and impurities such as residual solvents, mold, disease, pests or pesticide residue. Each individual state and municipality can impose its own standards and regulations for what needs to be tested and printed on cannabis labels. Furthermore, individual growers may opt for more stringent standards and go as far as to have their samples tested for CBC and CBG levels. This testing can be performed only by certified chemists and lab technicians. Previously, both cultivation and sales of cannabis were ban across the globe for several years. Now, many countries are recognizing the benefits of cannabis for medicinal purposes and rescinding their ban.

Cannabis-Testing-Market,-2020-2027

The sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has a positive and a negative impact on the pharmaceutical and life sciences industry. Certain market segments have been more severely affected due to the low demand for instruments, consumables, and reagents as well as due to supply chain disruptions and trade restrictions. Overall, labs across the globe were shut down or running at a reduced capacity. The labs, which were fully or partially open were working majorly on COVID-19 testing instead of carrying out usual operations. The medical cannabis market lost some revenue due to factors such as testing laboratories closures, disrupted supply chains, general economic slowdown, and restricted movement. In addition, numerous market players providing products and software to the cannabis testing industry witnessed a decline in the sales of instruments and consumables due to the shutdown of labs, declining number of cannabis tests performed, and certain restrictions on the import and export of cannabis testing products. These factors have led to a decline in the sales of consumables & instruments used in the cannabis testing industry, thereby hampering the growth of the cannabis testing market. This was majorly due to the decline in the purchase of the products, subsequently impacting the growth of the products & consumables segment of the cannabis testing industry. 

Surge in demand for cannabis legalization in several countries for medical purposes and increase in adoption of LIMS in cannabis testing laboratories are the key factors driving the growth of the cannabis testing market. Furthermore, collaborations between major companies are also expected to boost the market growth. However, high startup cost for cannabis testing laboratories constitute is expected to restrain the growth of the market. These laboratories have to make significant investments in procuring and maintaining high-priced, advanced analytical equipment. Conversely, emerging economies across developing regions, such as LATAM and Asia-Pacific, are expected to provide new opportunities for cannabis testing market players in future.
