Paris Terror Drives Europe to Lead ETD Market Growth: CAGR 16%

Explosives and Narcotics Trace Detection (ETD) is a key modality within the Homeland Security, military and public safety infrastructure. Uses of ETD include air-sea-land transportation security, force protection, law enforcement, critical infrastructure protection and public safety. According to Homeland Security Research Corp.'s (HSRC) latest report, Explosives & Narcotics Trace Detection (ETD): Technologies & Global Market – 2015-2020, the ETD market (including systems sales, service, consumables and upgrades) will present multibillion-dollar business opportunities growing at a CAGR of 14% from 2015 to 2020.

The ETD market's accelerated growth period is driven by:

  • The January 2015 Paris terror attack leading to a European security funding hike
  • No competitive explosives and narcotics trace detection products on the horizon
  • Oil-gas industry security needs
  • China’s massive investments in new airports and public security
  • Middle Eastern terror
  • Latin America war on drugs
  • The Indian government counter terror investments
  • The U.S. and the EU legislations enforcing 100% cargo screening on all passenger flights
