Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024 - 2036

X-Ray Security Screening Market size is poised to reach USD 25 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 9% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of the X-ray security screening was USD 12 Billion. The growth of X-ray security screening market is on account of the rising security concerns including criminal activities, terrorism, and illegal trade. According to research the illegal drug trade reached USD 650 billion globally and has a devastating economic impact. These concerns result in a need for the adoption of high-quality security measures like an X-ray security screening which allows officials to check the bags and luggage of people entering any space to uncover any possible hidden contraband or smuggled goods, as well as explosives, guns, drugs, or weapons. This makes it possible to find these things before any harm or damage is done.

In addition to that, the rising need for X-ray security screening equipment is also due to increased investments in infrastructure development projects, such as airports and governmental & commercial buildings, which are intended to ensure public safety and thwart possible threats.

X-Ray Security Screening Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Demand in Airports and Other Transportation Hubs: There is a high demand for X-ray security screenings in airports and other transportation hubs due to an increase in various security threats such as terrorism, illegal immigration, and illicit trafficking of firearms & drugs. In addition to that, the high volume of transportation hubs creates a high risk of various security threats which is expected to drive the growth of the X-ray security screening market. For instance, currently, there are around 40,000 airports, airstrips & heliports in the world. Additionally, there are around 4200 seaports globally.  
  • Integration of AI in X-ray Security Screenings: One of the main factors driving demand in the X-ray security screening industry is the incorporation of AI into these systems. Because AI allows machines to learn and adapt, it improves the accuracy of threat identification and increases screening efficiency. Machine learning (ML) algorithms can quickly and accurately discern between benign objects and possible hazards in complex X-ray images. This feature improves the efficiency of the screening process by lowering false positives and streamlining security protocols. As security threats evolve, so does the need for sophisticated screening solutions. To keep ahead of new dangers, governments, airports, and other security-sensitive organizations invest in AI-integrated X-ray equipment. This provides a strong push for ongoing market expansion in the forecast period.
  • Surge in Global Trade Activities: According to data published by World Bank currently the trade growth is 12.59% compared to a world growth of 12.59%. Due to this rise in international trade activities, there is an increased need to protect products in transit from potential dangers. Both corporations and governments make large investments in cutting-edge screenings to find bombs, drugs, and other illegal items that could jeopardize supply chain security, further propelling the market growth of X-ray security screenings.

Challenges

  • Health Concerns: The use of X-ray equipment raises health concerns due to exposure to ionizing radiation which can lead to acute radiation sickness, multi-system syndromes, and genetic abnormalities at the cellular level. Due to this people may become skeptical to consent to X-ray screening as a result especially when body scanners hampering the X-ray security screening market in the forecast period.
  • Due to the high cost of application of X-ray security systems some companies may find the large upfront costs unaffordable which can hold back the market growth
  • The growing use of X-ray screening devices, especially in public places, has sparked debates concerning privacy and the possibility of invasive scanning due to legal and ethical issues.
