Global Airport Baggage Screening Systems Market Overview

Airport Baggage Screening Systems Market Size is expected to reach USD 5.03 Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 6.7% during 2020-2030.Growing at this market rate, the global market is likely to attain good market revenue during the ongoing period of 2020-2030.

The growing adoption of airport baggage screening systems by the airports of countries such as the US to offer enhanced security to the passengers is also driving the market growth. However, high installation costs and the need for continuous maintenance might hamper the growth of the market.

An Airport baggage screening system is known as a type of screening system that is helpful to conduct processes like monitoring or checking the baggage with the help of electronic devices. These screening systems are used at the airports where the luggage is properly examined before it is passed on to the placement in the aircraft. Screening systems in airports and other locations have acquired huge recognition across the world as security concerns are rising among the population.

It has been observed that the global airport baggage screening systems market manufacturers are putting more emphasis on technological advancements and developments in baggage screening systems. This rising emphasis can be attributed because operations can be effectively carried out and the steady performance of an airport can be enhanced. With the development of new airports, along with other infrastructural developments, the function of baggage screening systems has eventually become more important.

The increasing security concerns and the failure of the metal detectors to detect non-metallic objects are increasing risk degrees and the rising use of explosives are forcing many airports to implement advanced screening technologies and procedures. These technologies are likely to be implemented to screen the baggage and luggage for explosives and non-metallic weapons. Hence, the global market has a rewarding future during the ongoing forecast period that will be ending in 2027.

COVID 19 Analysis

The onset of the pandemic has been rising major questions regarding the global functioning of the market and the airport baggage screening systems market is one of the affected markets owing to the arrival and spread of the novel coronavirus. The pandemic has introduced a healthcare emergency and the world is at a standstill since the beginning of 2020.

 The onset of the pandemic has been such that there has been a major degree of disruption in the demand and supply chain mechanism of the market that is hampering the requirement of on-site technology, products, and services. The airport baggage screening systems market is likely to establish a good market growth and expansion owing to the rising hacking and terrorism threats. There has been a huge rise in the research and development activities for the right employment of talent and skill to produce the best outcomes. Hence, the collaborative efforts of the global governments and the prominent market players that are spending in various global locations are rising and foreseeing an excellent future for the market functions during the ongoing forecast period that ends in 2027.

Market Dynamics


The airport baggage screening systems market share suggests that there is a growing demand for air travel and the increasing air traffic is expected to drive the growth of the market. The global market manufacturers of these screening systems are increasingly focusing on the investments related to the development and provision of efficient baggage screening systems. There has been a massive degree of improvement of the existing baggage screening processes that can simultaneously support the performance and efficiency of an airport. Before 2011, stats suggest that there were three types of attacks on aircraft that were very common, i.e. hijacking, bombing, and robbing. In all three types of attacks, the civil aircraft functioning and services, with people and goods aboard, was the major target. As a result of the same, the concept of screening systems before entry was introduced for better safety.


The trends also highlight some factors that might act as restraints for the expansion of the airport baggage screening systems market share during the ongoing forecast period that will be ending in 2027. There are high costs associated with the screening systems that are likely to pose a significant threat to the market growth. Their high installation costs followed by their regular maintenance and upgraded platforms restrict the market growth over the forecast period. The market is emerging as a highly competitive market with all the players competing to gain major market share. The global market vendors are competing on various factors like they compete based on cost, product quality, and other factors like reliability, and aftermarket service. It is being understood as very challenging for the vendors to provide cost-efficient and high-quality airport baggage screening systems and services, to survive and succeed in an intensely competitive market environment.

This is emerging as an unquestionable challenge for the new players in the market, and the challenging factor for the forecasted growth of the airport baggage screening system market.

Technology Analysis
