Full Body Scanners: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – The global market for full body scanners is witnessing growth, driven by growing security concerns caused by an alarming rise in global terrorism. Use of full body scanners in airports is growing in significance, given the use of airways as a medium to spread violence and terror. Screening of passengers at airports is gaining importance as a vital security measure, given the rising instances of flight hijacking, and carrying of explosive devices for in-flight detonation. Full body scanners are an evolving aviation security technology used for screening of people at airports. These machines complement hand searches and the existing metal detectors, to improve the security framework of airports. The ability to detect a wide range of threats including explosives is spurring demand for these systems. Commercial airports are proactively making significant investments in these systems to effectively address the burning issues of terrorism and drug-peddling. Other factors driving growth in the market include increasing air travel, rising security threats, technological advancements, and airport infrastructure development in countries such as China and India.

One of the key advantages of commercial airport full body scanners is the reduced amount of time taken to screen passengers. This is mainly in comparison with traditional pat down procedures, which are time consuming and also uncomfortable. Growing interest in full body scanner systems worldwide is fuelling intensive research and development efforts to bring forth machines that result in less radiation and are image-free. Growing concerns over breach of privacy of individuals and risk of exposure to high radiation doses associated with traditional backscatter X-ray scanners, will benefit adoption of millimeter wave scanners. Backscatter X-ray scanners have already been discontinued at US and European airports, owing to privacy and health concerns.

As stated by the new market research report on Full Body Scanners, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. Emerging economies in Asia-Pacific and Latin America are projected to register the fastest growth over the analysis period. With booming air travel, expanding tourism industry, increase in number of low-cost carriers and rising security concerns, adoption of these systems is on rise across these regions, with pilot testing underway in many countries.
