About air cargo security and screening systems
Security checks for cargo shipments are traditionally carried out through physical inspection by humans or canines (threat detection dogs). However, due to increase in global air cargo traffic, there is increased need for effective security and screening systems. Adoption of new sophisticated screening techniques that are more efficient and effective in screening large volumes of cargo has increased. Also, advanced air cargo screening systems provide enhanced threat detection capabilities. Key screening systems currently in use include screening systems based on X-rays, and ETD and EDS technologies.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global air cargo security and screening systems market to grow at a CAGR of 5.15% over the period 2014-2019.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Dedicated freight operators and freighter aircrafts provide air cargo trade with more specialized offerings. Furthermore, to handle the growing global air cargo trade volume, there also has been an increase in development of dedicated air cargo terminals. To meet the international security standards, and to handle the air cargo security screening process efficiently, such dedicated cargo terminals establish screening facilities equipped with advanced cargo screening systems.”
According to the report, the air cargo industry is vulnerable to terror attacks, and there is an increased need for air cargo security and screening systems. For example, in 2010, two packages shipped from Yemen to Chicago were discovered to contain explosive materials. Also, in 2013, terrorist attacks increased by 43% worldwide. Therefore, the air cargo requires efficient and advanced cargo screening systems to handle the increasing volume, and provide enhanced security measures.
Further, the report states that high cost of technology is a major challenge faced by the market.
