Airport passenger screening systems screen the passengers before they board an airplane. Usually, after passing through a screening system, passengers are checked manually by the police personnel using a metal detector. Rising air traffic as well as increasing threat to security of passengers along with the aircraft, is likely to boost the global airport passenger screening systems market in the forecast period 2016-2024.
The current air traffic upsurge throughout the globe has strengthened the need for screening systems for both passengers and baggage to maintain efficiency and security at the airport. As passenger screening remains a vital aspect of airport operations, improvement in the present passenger checking processes can help in the improvement of timely performance and eventually increase the efficacy of the airport. In current times, more emphasis is given to altering the commuter screening abilities in the airport, both in the private and government organizations One major challenge of the airport passenger screening systems market is the cost. Owing to the high cost of raw materials (newest technology), and shortage of labor, the final cost of the product is rather high.
Rising anxieties over passenger screening processes have pushed many airports to choose screening facilities from private security providers. Air traffic is likely to grow at a substantial rate due to rise in disposable income, time crunch, and lower costs. This in turn is likely to propel the overall airport passenger screening systems market.
The global airport passenger screening systems market can be segmented on the basis of type and geography. Based on type, the market can be divided into advanced imaging systems, metal detection systems, and explosive detection systems. Advanced imaging systems, also known as full-body scanners or whole body imaging (WB) systems is likely to grow substantially over the forecast period. The capability of these machines to detect hidden items in passengers has enhanced their use in numerous airports globally. These innovative systems are able to spot metallic as well as non-metallic objects, which are otherwise undetectable.
Geographically, the global airport passenger screening systems market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa. Currently, North America dominates the global airport passenger screening market. Asia Pacific held the maximum share in the airport passenger screening systems market during the predicted period. High investments, rise in air traffic, and fast expansion of airports have given a positive push to the overall market. Furthermore, as air traffic is on the rise due to increased population in the region, several countries in Asia Pacific have become profitable markets for automated airport passenger screening systems. India, China, Indonesia, and Philippines are forecasted to obtain considerable investment in new airports over the next decade to accommodate the mushrooming passenger traffic in the region, which is likely to be a driving factor for the airport passenger screening systems market in the region.
The global airport passenger screening systems market is extremely competitive with intense rivalry amongst existing companies to gain larger market share in numerous emerging as well as established markets. The existing players in the market are on the lookout for emerging technologies, keeping the future air traffic demand in mind. Furthermore, new players are trying to get a share of the market through high investment. Some of the key players in the market are Costruzioni Elettroniche Industriali Automatismi S.p.A. (Italy), NUCTECH COMPANY LIMITED (China), L-3 Communications (U.S.), RapiScan Systems (U.S.), and Smiths Detection, Inc. (U.K.). Other noticeable players in the airport passenger screening systems market include Analogic Corporation (U.S.), American Science and Engineering (U.S.), Optosecurity (Canada), and AUTOCLEAR, LLC (U.S).
