Key Market Trends

Airports to Hold Major Share

– The global aviation industry is observing a significant influx of passengers, and commercial air traffic is on the rise, owing to which airports are increasingly adopting innovative security screening solutions. According to IATA, the revenue of commercial airlines globally in 2018 stood at USD 812 billion and expected to reach USD 872 billion by 2020. ​
– Moreover, the security coverage across the airport facilities is critical and global spending on enhancing airport security is on the rise; a prominent share of spending is expected to be towards incorporating new technologies in both hardware and software.
– Also, airports across the world are highly regulated and require upgraded technological solutions in screening; with constant developments and upgrades, the demand for screening solutions in this space holds a significant share of the market. For instance, according to Government Accountability Office (GOA) report on Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) screening equipment in 2019, it found that their security screening protocols across the US airports were out of date.
– Apart from passenger screening, the demand for cargo screening is on the rise; vendors are increasingly developing solutions to cater to the growing demand. For instance, in March 2020, Rapiscan System’s ORION series qualified for air cargo screening by TSA; the products come in two variants, baggage & parcel inspection (920DX) and large parcel & small cargo (928DX). ​
– Besides, airport authorities across the world are mandating the use of new technologies and a particular type of screening products to enhance security; this is expected to further augment the demand over the coming years. For example, the UK has mandated that all major airports across the country install state-of-the-art 3D cabin baggage screening equipment by December 2022. The new CT scanners enable passengers to keep liquids and electrical equipment in their cabin baggage.

Asia-Pacific to Witness Highest Growth

– China is a major hub for air travel across the globe, with almost 238 civil airports in the country, as of 2019. According to the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) ‘s 13th Five Year Plan (2016 – 2020), China is anticipated to continue new airport construction including the Beijing Daxing International Airport which is one of the significant new airport under construction and part of its 44 new airport construction projects; Chengdu Tianfu Airport will be the 2nd largest new airport project in China. This gives several companies a market opportunity to sell their airport security equipment and services.
– In India rapid urbanization, population growth, expansion of industries, infrastructure and mass transportation systems are driving the expectations for enhanced safety and security measures specifically in critical national infrastructure sectors such as government research facilities, communication networks, defense establishments, emergency and disaster management systems, ports, critical manufacturing facilities, healthcare facilities, oil refineries, power plants, and mass transportation systems.​The security screening market in India consists of different system integrators, local manufacturers, distributors and consultants, and service providers, and the industry is highly fragmented.
