The global airport scanner machines market is projected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2021-2029 owing to the increasing public security concerns and for the increasing need to combat terror attacks, such as, plane hijacking and bomb blast, across the globe. Globally, more than 35 acts of unlawful interference at airports were recorded in 2018, including seizure of aircrafts and attack on aviation facilities.
Unlike metal detectors, airport scanner machines are equipped to detect non-metal objects, such as non-metallic bombing equipment, surgically implanted bombs or weapons carried on the body. Moreover, airport scanners also detect drugs, paper (currency), jewelry or any other unauthorized object. Further, the need to curb rising cases of smuggling narcotics, wildlife products and other illegal commodities, is estimated to positively influence the market growth.
The market is segmented by type into millimeter wave scanner and backscatter X-ray scanner. Out of the two, the millimeter wave scanner segment is estimated to generate the highest revenue in the market during the forecast period owing to its high speed, accuracy, higher sensitivity, and 3D high-resolution proficiency. On the other hand, the end-user segment is divided into cargo service, civil, military airport, and others, out of which the civil airport segment is estimated to garner a substantial share during the forecast period owing to the large number of people travelling through airways. The increasing passenger traffic on airports is estimated to raise the need for strict security check, which, in turn, is estimated to encourage the market growth. In the year 2018, more than 4 billion passengers travelled by air transport, both domestic and internationally. Moreover, the passenger footfall increased by over 3 % in the year 2019.
However, the reluctance among people to get scanned on the back of privacy issues is a challenge to the market growth. Many countries give right to the citizen to refuse scanning and opt for a pat down check instead. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT
