Security Screening Market Drivers and Opportunities

Heightened Concern Regarding Terrorism and Illegal Immigration to Favor the Market

The escalating worry surrounding terrorism and illegal immigration propels the security screening market, demanding advanced security solutions to counter these threats. The intricate and diverse link between terrorism and illegal immigration has intensified the emphasis on security measures aimed at mitigating potential risks. Government agencies, such as Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), possess exclusive authorities and capabilities to combat foreign intelligence and non-traditional collection threats. They are also responsible for identifying, locating, and investigating national security threats and human rights violators who breach their immigration status or engage in criminal activities. HSI focuses on targeting individuals, financial resources, and materials that support terrorist activities within the United States and internationally. Additionally, other agencies such as U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, U.S. Coast Guard, and U.S. Secret Service actively participate in addressing terrorist threats and evolving security challenges.

Emphasis on Modern Security Solutions to Curb Radiological Attacks – An Opportunity in the Market

The heightened focus on modern security measures to prevent radiological attacks is a response to the danger posed by the spread of radioactive substances with malicious intent. This encompasses the potential utilization of radioactive materials in a "radiological dispersal device" (RDD). Such attacks could result in substantial localized damage and contamination of the surrounding area and provoke intense fear and distress within affected communities. The expansion of the security screening sector is directly tied to this emphasis on modern security solutions. The necessity for improved security measures to identify and thwart radiological attacks has generated a greater need for advanced security screening technologies and services.
