Jump in Passenger Volume and Increased Security Demands Driving Growth of the Global Airport Passenger Screening Systems Market: Report

Fast Market Research announces the availability of the new TechNavio report, "Global Airport Passenger Screening Systems Market 2015-2019", on their comprehensive research portal


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/31/2015 -- Air passengers have to undergo strict security screening procedures before embarking an aircraft. In airports, passenger screening involves pat-down search and the use of passenger screening systems (such as metal detectors or full body scanners) to ensure the security and safety. Initially, hand-held and walk-through metal detectors were used to screen passengers at airports. But, as a result of the growing air traffic, advanced passenger screening systems (based on backscatter X-ray and millimeter wave technology) are largely being used at airports worldwide.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global airport passenger screening systems market to grow at a CAGR of 4.02% over the period 2014-2019.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio's team said: "Full-body scanners are capable of detecting nonmetallic objects and explosives that cannot be detected using existing metal detectors. The privacy concerns associated with these screening systems are also being addressed. Vendors have come up with new software and processes that do not produce a realistic full-body image of the passenger, and maintain the person's anonymity. The new full-body scanners now detect any metallic and nonmetallic threats that might be concealed under a passenger's clothing, while displaying a generic outline of the person. As a result, full-body scanners are now being increasingly accepted at many airports around the globe, in countries such as the US, Canada, Germany, France, the Netherlands, and the UK."

According to the report, global air passenger traffic has been increasing at a rapid pace, propelled by the growing demand for air travel from emerging countries in APAC, the Middle East, and South America. Over the next 20 years, global air passenger traffic will increase. Airport authorities have to meet the increasing demand while also maintaining efficient passenger screening procedures. Significant resources (i.e., passenger screening systems) are needed to accommodate the increasing air traffic without impacting the operational effectiveness of a given airport.

Further, the report states that cumbersome process of passenger screening with existing systems hinders the market growth.

The key players in the Global Airport Passenger Screening Systems Market are CEIA, L-3 Communications Security & Detection Systems, RapiScan Systems and Smiths Detection while other prominent vendors include American Science and Engineering, Analogic, AUTOCLEAR, Nuctech and Optosecurity
