Global Airport Passenger Screening Systems Market 2015-2020
The Global Passenger Screening Systems market is predicted to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.4% from 2015 to 2020. The reason being not only threats from terrorists but also natural wear and tear effectively speeding up the aging of machines caused by their round the clock usage on the ever increasing passenger traffic. It is also predicted by IATA, that the global annual passenger traffic will grow from 3.366 billion reported in 2015 to an expected 3.69 billion by 2020 and is likely to reach 7.3 billion by 2034.
With the increase in daily passengers the queues for security checks become longer and the customer wait time increases beyond comfort. Also the current passenger screening system thus far has not been 100% effective in giving confidence to either passengers or the government regarding its effectiveness in countering terrorist activities or in obstructing the carrying of prohibited materials on board the aeroplane. The search for a better, more efficient, non-intrusive screening machine is still active and available for tenders.
With the spate of violence across the globe, screening of passengers is becoming an important role at airports. The markets in United States of America and United Kingdom are key players in accrediting standards for these passenger screening systems used in the airports worldwide.
The developing nations like India, Indonesia, Thailand, and China are the biggest markets for the passenger screening systems. These four nations together are estimated to account for about 1000 million additional passengers where China alone will add 650 million passengers followed by India with added 175 million passengers. This number will only increase as the living standards in these countries improve. Tourist attractions like the Malaysian Republic, Java, and Myanmar will also see a considerable increase in the passengers. Japan is also expected to see a rise in passengers in air travel to 180 million from the current 150 million till 2020. The Asia Pacific will account for 42% of the global air passenger in the next decade.
Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and United Kingdom in the EU region are the growing markets and will add about 350 million passengers to the air travel by 2020.
In the Latin America, Brazil will see a steady rise in air passengers. In North America, domestic passengers are predicted to increase to a 75 million mark from 25 million, and U.S will amount for about 200 million more passengers over its 800 million annual air passengers.
Some of the countries like India, Pakistan, Iran, Nepal and Sri Lanka, in the Asia Pacific region still use pat down method for screening passengers along with hand held and walk through metal detectors at most airports. Some airports in the class A, additionally have other systems installed for screening passengers along with sniffer dogs.
Since the 2006 transatlantic aircraft plot, the liquid explosives screening systems also became a part of the screening detail at major airports worldwide. The inability to effectively distinguish clear liquids from threats forced the airport authorities and airliners to look for better screening systems. As of now restrictions on carrying liquids on-board a flight is the only deterrent along with physical examination of liquids to test the threat level of screened liquids and bottles. Some companies have built liquid detection systems for screening of passengers but they are not very popular and are under scrutiny from the government and security panels of airports.
CEIA, L-3 Security & Detection Systems Inc., and Smiths Detection are some of the important players in the Airport Passenger Screening Systems Market. The market has been segmented by type (Metal Detectors, Explosive Trace Detectors, Magneto Static Detectors, Full Body Scanners, Advanced Imaging Technologies), by Airport Capacity (Up To 15 Million, 15-25 Million, 25-40 Million, 40 Million+) and by Geography (North America, South America, Europe, Middle East & Africa and Asia Pacific).
