The report, now available on ASDReports, recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Airport Passenger Screening Systems Market: CEIA, L-3 Communications Security & Detection Systems, RapiScan Systems and Smiths Detection
The other prominent vendors are: American Science and Engineering, Analogic, AUTOCLEAR, Nuctech and Optosecurity
Commenting on the report, an analyst said: “Full-body scanners are capable of detecting nonmetallic objects and explosives that cannot be detected using existing metal detectors. The privacy concerns associated with these screening systems are also being addressed. Vendors have come up with new software and processes that do not produce a realistic full-body image of the passenger, and maintain the person’s anonymity. The new full-body scanners now detect any metallic and nonmetallic threats that might be concealed under a passenger’s clothing, while displaying a generic outline of the person. As a result, full-body scanners are now being increasingly accepted at many airports around the globe, in countries such as the US, Canada, Germany, France, the Netherlands, and the UK.”
According to the report, global air passenger traffic has been increasing at a rapid pace, propelled by the growing demand for air travel from emerging countries in APAC, the Middle East, and South America. Over the next 20 years, global air passenger traffic will increase. Airport authorities have to meet the increasing demand while also maintaining efficient passenger screening procedures. Significant resources (i.e., passenger screening systems) are needed to accommodate the increasing air traffic without impacting the operational effectiveness of a given airport.
Further, the report states that cumbersome process of passenger screening with existing systems hinders the market growth.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
