Global Security Screening Systems Market 2016-2020

About the Security Screening Systems Market

Prior to the deployment of security screening systems in the 1990s, major end-users had employed handheld detectors and the physical checking of people, which required staff with proper training and skills. This led to more waiting time in queues, especially in airports, metro stations, and bus stations. Also, the traditional screening process had flaws due to human errors. Such errors are likely to cause risks such as terrorist attacks and illegal activities, leading to unrest in nations. Therefore, the use of the latest technologies in security screening gained prominence in order to enhance customer experience and increase the security and safety of people and assets.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global security screening systems market to grow at a CAGR of 9.35% during the period 2016-2020.

Covered in this report

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global security screening systems market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the study considers the revenue generated from the worldwide sales of the following types of security screening systems:

  • X-ray screening machines, which use electromagnetic radiation that penetrates the body and creates images of the interior body structures on photographic films. These machines are used for screening people and cargos.
  • Metal detector, which is an electronic device that gives an audible signal when it is close to metal. Metal detectors can be both static and handheld devices.
  • Explosive detection, including both trace and bulk detection.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Security Screening Systems Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global security screening systems market: American Science and Engineering, Rapiscan Systems, Safran, and Smiths Detection.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Adani, Analogic, Astrophysics, CEIA, and L3 security and detection systems.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A trend which is propelling market growth is the emergence of CT security screening. To improve efficiency and processes at screening checkpoints, in April 2016, Changi Airport Group in Singapore announced that it would be conducting trials of CT security screening at two boarding gates at terminal 3. CT is an imaging procedure that creates detailed pictures or scans of areas inside the body with the help of a special X-ray equipment. CT can produce composite 3-D images of baggage contents by combining radiographic cross-sections of contents to detect threats based on volume and density. It also provides superior detection and offers airport staff a more detailed view of targeted bag contents.”

According to the report, a key growth driver is the increased use of integrated screening systems. X-ray security screening systems are widely used by industries such as aviation, defense, cargo, and law enforcement. They are also using several other security screening and scanning equipment such as explosive detectors, metal detectors, millimeter wave scanners, and backscatters.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could have an impact on growth is the violation of a person’s privacy through the use of x-ray screening.
