Market Scenario

Airport security includes numerous systems and technologies used to safeguard the passengers, staff, and planes from malicious activities, threats, and violence. It also helps to avoid incidents, such as bombings, skyjackings, and others. The systems and technologies that are used for airport security include metal detectors, X-ray scanners, explosive detectors, biometrics, intrusion detectors, 3D scanners, and others. They are also essential to avoid loss of assets and the disruption of business. Explosive and intrusion detectors are used to prevent threats of cross-border terrorism, smuggling, and drug trade. Similarly, the need for providing access control into critical areas have increased the demand for fixed surveillance and biometric identification systems at the airports.
The increasing need for stringent security to ensure passenger safety against critical situations is primarily driving the growth of this market. Also, strict government regulations to strengthen airport security is contributing to market growth. However, high installation and maintenance costs of security solutions are one of the major restraints for the growth of this market.
The airport security market has been segmented into type, systems and equipment, technology, and region. By type, the market has been segregated into access control, cybersecurity, perimeter security, screening, surveillance, and others. As screening is the primary checking process that use to perform on the airports to check any threatening and restricted item possess by an individual. This is one of the most significant segments of the market. Millimeter-wave machine, a backscatter X-ray system, and walk-through metal detectors are some of the systems that are used to screen passengers.

Segmentation of the Global Airport Security Market

By technology, the market has been segmented into radio-frequency identification (RFID), biometrics, 3D scanning, and others. The 3D scanning segment is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. This is due to various advantages such as these scanners can see through cluttered bags and give screeners the ability to zoom in and rotate the bag for a 360-degree view. It also saves time as travelers do not have to remove electronics items from bags.
By region, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America. North America is accounted for the largest shares of the market in 2017. This is due to the stringent government regulations and transportation security administration (TSA) standards to strengthen security at airports. Also, the US is one of the significant suppliers of security systems. Likewise, Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. This is due to the increasing demand for air travelers and a rising number of airports in this region. Furthermore, the number of air travelers is rising in regions such as Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America.
