The preference for oral fluid over urine is increasing primarily due to sample-collection advantages, which include a less invasive collection protocol and no need for special collection facilities and a same-sex collector. The collection can be achieved in privacy, under close supervision, thereby reducing any opportunity of sample adulteration. The results of rapid oral fluid screening devices generally have better relevance in understanding the effects of drug abuse and evaluating an individual’s behaviour, job performance and safety risk than the results from urine testing. The presence of drugs in oral fluid is usually related to the amount of drug in the bloodstream at the time of sample collection. While analysing oral fluid, it is possible to actually test for the parent drug itself and not just a metabolite of that drug. The advances in rapid oral fluid screening devices are making it possible to more accurately quantify drug test results. This has increased the adoption rate for rapid oral fluid screening devices among the target population, further driving the market revenue.

Rise in Number of Clinical Laboratories Offering Rapid Oral Fluid Screening Services
Now a days, rapid oral fluid screening devices are promising new matrices for drug testing programs for drug treatment, pain management and driving under the influence of drugs (DUID). Rapid oral fluid screening devices are used for roadside screening. For instance, in Italy, since August 2010, the law has started considering rapid oral fluid screening devices as an alternative biological specimen for the determination of DUID. Increasing number of clinical laboratories offering drug of abuse test using rapid oral fluid screening devices is expected to boost the demand for rapid oral fluid screening devices during the forecast period. Moreover, increasing number of hospital-based laboratories, physician laboratories and independent laboratories performing tests for screening of various drugs are expected to further boost demand for rapid oral fluid screening devices.
Transition from Lab Based Screening to Disposable Devices
Owing to the high cost of lab-based tests for screening and the expertise and capital required in the transfer from collection site to the lab, the shift towards rapid oral fluid screening devices is increasing rapidly. Rapid oral fluid screening devices provide rapid results and are affordable as compared to lab-based definitive tests owing to which law enforcement agencies prefer to use rapid oral fluid screening devices for on-the-spot screening tests. Companies are also introducing new easy-to-use disposable rapid oral fluid screening devices at affordable competitive prices as a push strategy among end users.
Low Threshold of Drug Abuse Testing Laws in Emerging and Under-Developed Economies
Emerging countries of Asia, Latin America and Africa have low awareness regarding rapid oral fluid screening devices and less social support to decrease the consumption of illicit drugs. These factors, coupled with lack of government initiatives to track illicit drug consumption, are expected to hinder the growth of rapid oral fluid screening devices market in these regions. For instance, in Latin America, 77% of Brazilian children consume alcohol regularly, according to the World Health Organization. Moreover, aggressive marketing of tobacco and alcohol is prominent among low-income countries in the region. Easy availability of illicit drugs, poor awareness and lack of strong infrastructure for drug abuse testing are some of the factors that may hinder the revenue growth of the rapid oral fluid screening devices market in emerging and low-income countries.
