The Global People Security Screening Market will Surpass $34B Between 2015-2010, Says a New Research Report from Homeland Security Research Corp

Share Article

The 2nd half of this decade will be characterized by numerous new developments in the global People Screening market. Geopolitical turmoil in the Middle East, growing illegal immigration, rapid economic growth within Asia-Pacific nations, all combined with technological changes will lead to a vibrant global People Screening market

By 2020, the Asia Pacific People Screening Market will be as large as those of the U.S. & EU combined

One cannot underestimate the importance of effective people screening. Since the end of the cold war, no single event has had a greater effect on the global geopolitics and defense, as well as on public safety and homeland security markets, than the 9/11 attack, caused by the pre 9/11 people-screening processes loopholes.

According to the Global People Security Screening: Technologies, Industry & Market – 2015-2020 report, the 2015-2020 period will see the markets, shifting from the traditional EU & U.S. markets, expected to grow at single digit CAGR, to Asia Pacific & Middle Eastern markets that are forecasted to boom with double digit CAGR.

Some key report findings include:

  • In Asia Pacific, the investments in new mass transportation hubs, airports and rising crime provide an array of business opportunities for people screening systems vendors. This regional market will grow at a CAGR of 17.1%
  • The U.S. and European markets will grow at a CAGR of 5.8% and 8.9% respectively, a growth attributed to a strong replacement market and the incorporation of state of the art ICT means. Another market driver is the threat of homegrown radical Islam terrorists (e.g., ISIS 'graduates')
  • Despite attracting most of the attention, Airport Security will make-up less than 20% of People Screening market in the forecasted period (e.g., 15,000 diplomatic missions worldwide have people screening checkpoints vs. more than 7200 airport screening lanes by 2020)
  • Rapidly increasing illegal immigration is quickly becoming a leading driver behind people screening checkpoints projects
  • Middle Eastern turmoil and in particular the most recent ISIS threat lead local governments to not only reinforce their security forces but also to open their wallets in order to strengthen their homeland security infrastructures. In particular, Turkey, Israel, Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states are expected to lay out "Whatever It Takes" in order to replace existing checkpoints technologies with state-of-the-art systems while creating numerous new checkpoints in various strategic locations
  • As demonstrated by "Red Teams" drills, present people screening technologies contain numerous security loopholes when screening for "Black Listed" people, weapons and explosives. Aside from technical challenges, issues of privacy present additional challenges in developing premium systems. Towards the end of this decade the market will see the introduction of new technologies that will drive more cost-effective explosives, weapons and illicit materials detection, moving from the pre 9/11 technologies to cutting edge technologies (e.g., CBRNE "sensors on a chip", advanced ICT systems, and standoff suicide terrorists detection)
  • Airport screening technology is currently being developed that will allow passengers to walk through the IATA - ICAO "Checkpoint of the Future" and enabling high screening throughput. Moreover, it is envisioned that the security process would be fused with customs and immigration procedures and further streamline passenger experience
