Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Full Body Scanner Market

The COVID-19 outbreak has significantly affected the world and is continuing to shatter several countries. Until the outbreak of COVID-19, the aviation and tourism industry was witnessing notable growth. However, the outbreak of the virus has led to a notable decline in the adoption of full body scanner systems. Due to containment measures such as lockdowns, business shutdown, and travel restrictions, full body scanners' production and supply chain were affected negatively. Since full body scanner is majorly utilized for critical infrastructure and transportation applications, the demand for full body scanner was severely impacted during 2020 as all the critical infrastructures were either closed or operating with limited capacity. However, with the increasing count of vaccinations, market players are expected to witness steady growth in demand from end users in the coming years. The full body scanner market is anticipated to grow remarkably after the situation returns to normalcy worldwide.

Market Insights – Full Body Scanner Market

Adoption of Millimeter-Wave and Terahertz Technology-Based Scanners

With continuous technological developments taking place across the globe, body scanner manufacturers are looking forward to using advanced technologies to make scanning safer. The inclination toward using safer technology is encouraging the adoption of millimeter-wave over x-rays. Airports Authorities of Malaysia have announced updating their airports by working on developments, including millimeter-wave body scanners and mobile apps, which would assist the passengers in planning their airport journey with less travel stress. Similarly, the Indian government is likely to unveil technical norms for operating full-body scanners to screen passengers at airports. The government has decided to start using active and passive millimeter-wave-based body scanners in place of backscatter & full transmission x-ray technologies. Due to frequent exposure of passengers toward x-ray radiation, the Indian government has shown interest in using millimeter-wave-based body scanners.

Type-Based Insights

Based on type, the full body scanner market is segmented into millimeter wave scanner and x-ray. The x-ray segment held a larger market share in 2021.

Frequently Asked Questions

The full body scanner have been in use for several years worldwide, however, the technology has been experiencing immense demand in recent years. Growing contractual alliances for deploying body scanners is supporting the growth of full body scanner market.
Development of 3D images from full-body scanners will also provide growth opportunities to the market players during the forecast period. The professionals have made efforts to develop a machine that can scan a whole body from top to toe in a single shot. The scan will create a 3D image helping doctors & medical professionals to diagnose disorders and generate new treatments faster. The technology used in this type of scanner produces "movies" that detect drugs as they move from the body. These scanners are predicted to have applications ranging from tracking disease progression to improving diagnostics.
The global full body scanner market was dominated by the X-ray segment with market share of more than 60% in 2020. X-ray is gaining momentum across the globe. With the growing tourism coupled with the development of rail and metro stations across Asia Pacific, the use of advance technology for scanning and screening application is increasing. For instance, in 2018, Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad announced it would be installing X-ray body scanner at Malaysian Airports in order to cope with growing passenger numbers.
In 2021, North America led the market with a substantial revenue share, followed by Europe and APAC. These scanners are utilized at airports, borders, ports, government buildings, data centers, police station, banks, defense sites etc. North American countries are early adopters of sophisticated technology, thus use of advanced screening equipment such as x-ray full body scanner and millimeter-wave full body scanner is largely seen across many airports across the United States. Another factor driving the demand for full body scanner in the North America is stringent norms, rules, policies and regulations by respective government authorities.
The major companies in full body scanner includes Nuctech; Adani; Smiths Detection; Westminster; and Rapiscan Systems. The ranking has been derived analysing multiple parameters such as annual revenue earned from full body scanner portfolio, client base, geographic locations, R&D expenditure, brand image, and number of employees, among others. These companies are actively participating in developing full body scanner for various applications.
China held the largest share in APAC region. With the rapidly growing population of China, the country is planning to move around 250 Mn of its population into its rapidly developing megacities. Thus, to accommodate that huge migration, China is investing heavily in its infrastructure projects. The Chinese government is highly focused on the development of its infrastructure and has taken several measures to support the development. For instance, the country’s central government intensely pushed fiscal incentive in the form of infrastructure investments recently for sustaining economic growth. Also, China’s 13th Five Year Plan is focused on increasing investments in the country’s infrastructure. Moreover, China is dominating full body scanner market due to threats of terrorist activity and rise of drug trafficking which is helping the full body scanner market growth.
