Global Air Cargo Security Equipment Market: Overview

Air cargo security equipment systems are machines which are used for scanning parcels and detect hidden illegal items in the containers that are transported through flights. These equipment help in offering high level of security for cargo and allows identification and screening of packages containing explosives, chemicals, liquid materials or human presence. These systems help in detecting threats, knives, contraband, explosive, weapons, firearms and narcotics. Additionally, these equipment also detects individuals by sensing the human heartbeat through its vibrations which are hidden in containers or vehicles and loaded on vehicles. The systems is used for various application such as advanced personnel screening, air cargo security screening, aviation checkpoint solutions. The global air cargo security equipment market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025 to reach US$ 28,786.5 mn by 2025.

In 2016, the global air cargo security equipment market volume was pegged at 2,380.8 thousand units. Demand for air cargo security equipment from automotive, defense and aerospace, manufacturing sectors has increased in the last few years. Furthermore, in the coming years, the market for air cargo security screening and aviation checkpoint solutions application is expected to experience a faster growth. This is due to the increased adoption x-ray technology for usage of security systems for explosive and narcotic trace detection. This trend is expected to boost the air cargo security equipment market over the coming years. However, the market also faces certain drawbacks. A major factor restraining the growth of this market is the high cost of screening systems and bulk screening while operating air cargo security equipment.
