According to the Market Statsville Group (MSG), the global cannabis testing market was valued at USD 1,224.4 million in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 3,009.9 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 11.9% from 2022 to 2030.


According to the Market Statsville Group (MSG), the global cannabis testing market was valued at USD 1,224.4 million in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 3,009.9 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 11.9% from 2022 to 2030. Growing demand for the cannabis legalization in several countries for medical purposes and increasing adoption of LIMS in cannabis testing laboratories are the major factors driving the growth of the cannabis testing market. Furthermore, many leading pharmaceutical companies looking for new technologies to collaborate with testing laboratories to market and distribute medical cannabis products are also expected to boost the market growth. However, the high start-up cost for cannabis testing laboratories is expected to restrain the market's growth. These laboratories must make significant investments in high-priced, advanced analytical equipment in order to purchase and maintain it. Emerging economies in developing regions such as LATAM and Asia-Pacific, on the other hand, are expected to provide new opportunities for market participants.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had a positive and a negative impact on the pharmaceutical and life sciences industry. Certain market segments have been more affected due to the low demand for consumables, instruments, and reagents as well as due to the supply chain disruptions and trade restrictions. Overall, labs worldwide were shut down or running at a reduced capacity. Instead of carrying out routine operations, the labs that were open were primarily focused on COVID-19 testing.

Global Cannabis Testing Market Dynamics

DriversRapid urbanization and industrialization

The global cannabis testing is in its mature stage. The top companies in the market have adopted product approval, collaboration, and agreement as their developmental strategies in the competitive market. The information provided in this report is obtained through press releases by the top companies and is limited to the publicly available information.

LIMS can increase the efficiency of the cannabis testing laboratories and reduce procedural errors by enforcing SOPs, automating workflows, and strong process controls. LIMS ensures seamless data exchange with analytical instruments through instrument integration, preventing manual errors, and maintaining data integrity. Thus, LIMS software plays a crucial role in cannabis testing laboratories by managing, streamlining, and automating QA/QC processes.

RestraintsHigh start-up costs for cannabis testing laboratories

Laboratories have to make significant investments in obtaining and maintaining high-priced, advanced analytical equipment. Equipment standardization and upgrades, software requirements, certifications (such as ISO certification protocols), accreditations, and the requirement of skilled specialists further add to the cost of operations. The impact of these factors is strengthened as many banks deny funding or any other form of assistance to these laboratories due to the ambiguity in the cannabis testing industry and lines of credit are not available for laboratory owners/operators.
