Airport Passenger Screening Systems Market 2016 Global Trends, Market Share, Industry Size, Growth, Opportunities, and Forecast to 2021

PUNE, INDIA, March 20, 2017 / -- The Global Passenger Screening Systems market is poised to grow at a CAGR of 8.4% from 2015 to 2020. Threats from terrorists and the natural wear and tear of the machinery due to higher passenger traffic are expected to ramp-up the replacements, acting as a major driver for the former market. The global annual passenger traffic, which is expected to touch 3.69 billion by 2020 and further to 7.3 billion by 2034, would create further demand for better security systems in the airports, opening up new latitudes to the global passenger screening systems market.

With the increase in daily passengers, the queues for security checks become longer and the customer wait time increases beyond comfort. Further, the current passenger screening systems have not been 100% effective in providing assurance to either passengers or the government regarding their effectiveness in countering terrorist activities or in obstructing the carrying of prohibited materials. The search for a better, more efficient, non-intrusive screening machine is still active and available for tenders across multiple airports globally.

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 at the forefront in accrediting standards for these passenger screening systems used in the airports worldwide.

The market for airport passenger screening in the Asia Pacific region, would grow significantly and account to 42% of the global market by 2021.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, of which, China will account to 650 million passengers, followed by India with added 175 million passengers. This growth is highly anticipated with rapid growing living standards in these countries. Tourist attractions like the Malaysian Republic, Java, and Myanmar will also see a considerable increase in the passenger traffic. Japan is expected to see a rise in passengers in air travel to 180 million from the current 150 million till 2020. Airports in India, Pakistan, Iran, Nepal and Sri Lanka, 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.

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.

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. Liquid detection systems for screening of passengers are under scrutiny from the government and security panels of airports to validate their effectiveness.

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).
