Based on product, the DOA testing market is classified into equipment and consumable, of which consumables were the larger revenue contributor in 2016. This is owing to the heavy usage of assay reagents and kits and rapid test kits, as they make the process easier, more convenient, cost-effective, and faster. Even during the forecast period, the consumable classification is projected to experience more-rapid growth, compared to equipment, which includes breath and immunoassay analyzers and chromatography instruments.

The major driver for the DOA testing market is the increasing global production and trade of intoxicating substances. As per the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the production of opium in Afghanistan was 4,800 metric tons in 2016, an increase of 43% from 2015. Additionally, compared to 183,000 hectares in 2015, 201,000 hectares of land was used for poppy cultivation in the country in 2016. This is leading to an easier and wider availability of banned substances across the world, which is, in tun, raising the consumption rate.
