Terahertz Body Scanning Market Drivers and Opportunities

Increasing Demand for Covert and Overt Surveillance is Driving the Market

Terahertz imaging technologies and systems have recently developed and are widely used in numerous applications, including public places, airport and custom checkpoints, train stations and subways, and other secure sites. The increasing use of terahertz technology worldwide is associated with their low radiation and ability to detect concealed guns or other contraband in public places. If the terahertz body scanning is mounted in a suitable enclosure, it enables the operator to screen humans without awareness of stealth. This ensures proper detection of various person-borne dangers without creating any confusion. Furthermore, terahertz body scanning technology has the capability of measuring distances of up to 3 m suitable for remote detection of suspicious things hidden behind clothing. The mere presence of hidden goods helps law enforcement and security professionals to suspect and isolate him/her from police/security/customs officials for further physical inspection (body search). Thus, covert and overt surveillance is one of the critical factors fueling the market.

Increasing Terrorist Activities Worldwide – An Opportunity in the Terahertz Body Scanning Market

Terrorist activities have created awareness related to the vulnerability of public spaces and transportation systems. This increased security concerns and led security and government agencies to adopt more advanced, non-invasive methods and efficient scanning technologies for detecting concealed explosives, weapons, and other dangerous materials. Growing terrorist activities across the globe increase the demand and adoption of terahertz body scanning among security personnel. Terahertz body scanning is capable of identifying anomalies beneath clothing without the need for any physical contact. This improves efficiency by reducing the need for intrusive searches. The scanning allows quick and discrete screening, minimizing disruptions to the human flow in high-traffic areas and maintaining smooth operations by providing a high level of security vigilance. The growing number of terrorist activities across the globe and rising security concerns among nations are creating opportunities in the market during the forecast period.
