According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the security detection system market looks attractive with opportunities in the airport, shipping port, border, military, and critical infrastructure industries. The global security detection system market is expected to reach an estimated $5.3 billion by 2022 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2017 to 2022. The major growth drivers for this market are a continuing high threat level from terrorism, criminal activity, increasing air passenger traffic, new airport construction, and stringency in enforcing government security mandates.
In this market, x-ray screening systems, trace detection systems, metal detectors, and other systems are used to ensure the safety and security of people, properties, and critical infrastructure. Lucintel forecasts that x-ray screening systems will remain the largest product type due to the increasing use of these systems in airports, shipping ports, borders, critical infrastructure for luggage inspection and people screening. The trace detection system is expected to witness the highest growth in the forecast period supported by the growing demand at airport checkpoints for luggage and passenger security considering the increase of terrorism.
Within the security detection systems market, airports are expected to remain the largest end use industry with the highest growth due to increased air traffic, and new airport construction across the globe. This growth will also be supported by government spending on security systems due to concerns about the usage of improvised explosive device (IED) and other explosive types.
North America is expected to remain the largest region over the forecast period supported by increasing security code reinforcement and increasing government spending on infrastructure. Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period due to the Initiatives taken by governments to expand their infrastructure due to economic growth, rising standard of living, and increasing tourism. All of these factors drive the demand for security screening systems.
Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include advancement in metal detector technology for superior performance, and development of advanced full body scanners. Smiths Group Plc, Nuctech Company Limited, OSI Systems Inc. (Rapiscan), Safran S.A. (Morpho), and L3 Security & Detection Systems (L3 SDS) are among the major manufacturers and suppliers of security detection systems.
