Airport X-Ray Security Screening System Market Size, Trends and Analysis by 2028

Buy Now

The airport x-ray security screening system market is projected to reach US$ 3,459.82 million by 2028 from US$ 2,538.98 million in 2021; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2021 to 2028.

Security screening machines at airports perform passenger or luggage scanning using X-ray (ionizing radiation) or high radiofrequency (RF) radiations (nonionizing radiation). These X-ray full-body scanners provide alternatives to the traditional method of body scanning and extend the detection capabilities of existing technologies. X-ray screening machines are designed to detect weapons, explosives, and other prohibited items hidden underneath clothing. These technologies can also detect explosives carried by passengers in a liquid, aerosol, or gel form.

The growing number of airports, and increasing count of tourists and passengers are propelling the demand for airport X-ray screening globally. Furthermore, the demand for body scanners enabled with advanced technologies such as 3D scanning is expected to provide ample of growth opportunities to the manufacturers of airport x-ray systems. Also, a rise in the  incidences of terrorism at regional, national, and international boundaries is also driving the demand for airport x-ray security systems. However, inadequate information, and privacy and health concerns are restraining the airport X-ray security screening system market growth.

Governments of various European countries have restricted the use of X-ray body scanners at airports, thus parting ways with the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The US TSA has successfully installed numerous scanners to screen millions of airline passengers for detecting explosives hidden under clothing, if any. The emergence of millimeter wave scanners will impact the adoption of X-ray scanners as the radiations emitted by the later are harmful for human health.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Airport X-Ray Security Screening System Market

The onset of COVID-19 pandemic led to lockdowns in many countries worldwide, resulting in a travel ban. This hampered the operation of flights (except cargo aircraft). The airport closure for regular passengers led the airports to experience deflation in revenue; thus, negatively affected the airport x-ray security screening market in 2020. However, with the uplifting of lockdown, domestic flights have begun operating in 2021, which is slowly influencing the need for x-ray security screening at the airport for screening traveling passengers. As the lockdown restrictions are getting easy, the business units, companies, and commercial areas such as airports are reopening.

Market Insights
Body Scanners Equipped with Advanced Technologies

Historically, the use of full-body scanning technology was a matter of concern because it displays a detailed picture of the whole body, including skin surface under clothing and prosthetics. However, terahertz body scanners equipped with advanced software have gained prominence with time and are one of the major trends likely to contribute to market growth in the years to come. In terahertz body scanners, software imaging technology helps in masking specific body parts. The officer sitting at the machine cannot see the image; instead, the screen only shows whether the viewer has confirmed that the passenger has cleared up. Conversely, the officer viewing the picture does not see the device scanning the person. The advanced software, in some places, removes the need for a separate officer at a remote location. These units also generate a generic image of a person, with boxes highlighting specific areas of suspicion. If the machine detects no suspicious items, a green screen appears, indicating that the passenger is being cleared.

Further, the millimeter wave imaging technology is also used in body scanning system. This device uses millimeter radio wave technology to automatically detect concealed objects hidden inside or under clothing, including metal/non-metal weapons, liquids, IEDs (improvised explosive devices), and narcotics. For instance, Nuctech Company Limited offers millimeter wave (MW) body inspection devices for civil aviation industry.
