Explosive Detectors Market: Overview
Explosive detectors are rapid automatic security equipment capable to detect explosive of small magnitude using various technologies depending upon the size of object. The detection of the explosive could be done by using two technologies, trace detectors and bulk detectors. The detection of explosives and other explosive-related compounds has in recent times become a greater priority not just for homeland security but also for counter-terrorism applications. There has thus been a massive increase in research activities within this area. This has occurred via the development of new, innovative detection approaches and the improvement of existing techniques.
The explosive detectors market has been experiencing massive growth in the recent years due to rising terrorist activities across the globe and government legislations for enhanced and efficient security screening. The increasing demand for antiterrorism activities and tighter screening process to protect the citizens and infrastructure from terrorist attacks is boosting the demand and adoption of explosive detectors.
Moreover, growing security concerns in the aviation industry is one of the major factor driving the global market. However, increasing cyber threats and risk of device failure in public safety is expected to suppress the market growth. Demand for innovation of more reliable and cost effective explosive detectors is expected to create new opportunity for the companies operating in explosive detectors market.
