Airport Passenger Screening System Market

Airport passenger screening systems refers to the screening techniques that employs trained personnel to operate screening devices that are designed to safeguard civil aviation against accidental harms, acts of terrorism and other threats. The passenger screening systems, screen and process people, belongings and cargo to prevent the entry of prohibited items such as metal objects, weapons, liquor products and others.  The increase in incidence of security threats on a civil aircraft like hijacking, robbing & bombing, raises high demand for full-body scanners and more advanced passenger screening technologies. The ability of advanced screening systems to accommodate the growth in air traffic without impacting the operational efficiency of an airport on account of adopting biometric technology and more automated screening lines, is anticipated to drive the demand for the airport passenger screening systems in upcoming years.

Market Size and Forecast

The airport passenger screening system market is anticipated to record a substantial CAGR of 4.8 % over the forecast period i.e. 2019-2027. The market is segmented on the basis of type into metal detectors, explosive trace detectors, magneto static detectors, full body scanners, and advanced imaging technologies, out of which, metal detectors are most widely used in all the airports, across the world. Moreover, the advanced imaging technology is gaining acceptance on account of the ban on use of full body scanners in certain countries due to the privacy issues and is likely to gain maximum growth during the forecast period. According to our research, the number of air passengers are estimated to grow at an average annual rate of around 4% percent over the forecast period, thus approximately six billion passengers annually are anticipated to require security and screening at airports around the world by 2027. The global airport passenger screening system market reached a market value of around USD 2 Billion in 2018.
