Global X-ray Security Scanner Market - Segmented by End User (Aviation, Maritime, Defense), Application (People, Product), and Region - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)

The x-ray security scanner market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.88% over the forecast period of 2018–2023. The scope of the market is limited to the x-ray scanners for security purposes.

The growing number of airports owing to the increasing number of people choosing to travel by air, have pushed the need for greater number of security scanner systems at airport terminals. Further, the growing incidents of drug trafficking, illegal immigration, and illegal arms trade has increased the adoption of these systems at public places including hotels, government sites, transport hubs, and museums and concert halls. However, the increasing stringency in the regulations by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), due to the possibilities of skin tissue damage have been discouraging the use of high-frequency X-ray systems, which is expected to hinder the market.

Growing Number of Terror Attacks

The growing threats from terrorist organizations, such as ISIS, and the growing instances of terrorist attacks in Europe, instabilities in countries, such as Iran, Syria, and Iraq. Growing instances of terrorist attacks in Europe in the past few years and growing threat from terrorist organizations such as ISIS is expected to drive the regional X-ray security screening system market. The November 2015 Paris attacks on multiple locations including restaurants & bars, music venues, and sports stadium forced the government of France to install scanning equipment in all the public places, thereby impacting the industry positively. Further, the bombings in Brussels in March 2016, also compelled the government of Belgium to deploy advanced scanning systems at airports and metro stations all over the country. Such threats are expected to drive the governmental bodies to implement improved inspection systems, thus propelling the industry growth over the next seven years.

Demand for Enhanced X-ray Screening Procedures from Aviation Industry

Due to the increase in government investment in the aviation industry of developing countries, like India and China, the demand for these devices is expected to increase. Also, airports are hubs to cargo inventory. Tracking, securing, and inspecting all shipping cargo containers are challenging tasks, which are facilitated by x-ray scanners. There lies a potential threat of smuggling banned substances in flights, things like radiological explosives, weapons, and conventional explosive devices. This threat is also fueling the demand for X-ray security scanner. According to the IATA, the 10-year growth rate for global cargo freight was at 3.1% in 2017, and these numbers are further expected to increase the demand for X-ray scanners.
