Market Research Future Published a Cooked Research Report, Global Airport Baggage Screening System Market Research Report – Forecast to 2023 – Market Analysis, Scope, Stake, Progress, Trends and Forecast up to 2023.
The Smart Security initiative aims to minimize passenger wait times and maintain advanced levels of security at checkpoints at airports. Towards this end, airports are incorporating innovative and advanced technologies to improve the flow of people and bags throughout checkpoints. Currently, many airports have adopted advanced carry-on luggage security x ray machine, new throughput processes, and pre-airport checks with a goal towards automation of airports. The integration of such IT technologies in airports have attracted new investments in the market.
In addition, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is improving the existing checkpoint and checked baggage screening technologies, to increase their detection
capabilities and efficiencies. Some of the technologies are Advanced Imaging Technology, X-Ray scanners, Explosives Detection Systems, and Explosives Trace Detection. Such
developments are expected to significantly contribute in the growth of the global market.
Moreover, the recent application of 3D scanning for airport baggage screening has shown positive results, with significant reduction in queues and bottlenecks. The COBRA machines, developed by Analogic Corp. provide three-dimensional images of bags that automatically detect any possible security threats or presence of illegal substances.
These advanced baggage screeners do not require human interference. Rather, in case of a threat, the bag is automatically flagged and removed from the queue to be physically
screened by an airport security agent. The preference of 3D technology over the conventional screening methods for baggage screening, has reduced the instances of false alarms and delays, resulting in high operational efficiency.
In addition, with the growing demand for artificial intelligence, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has initiated a program to develop machine learning powered tools.
This can predict security threats, essentially streamlining the screening operations, and simultaneously making them more accurate.
North America is one of the leading regions in the airport baggage screening systems market. The existence of the major manufacturers such as Rapiscan Systems and Astrophysics Inc., in this region, results in this region leading in the airport baggage screening systems market. This is supported by the availability of sophisticated technologies to manufacture high-tech baggage screening systems. In addition, strict government norms and airport authorities ensuring implementation of regular and advanced security checks, also fuel the market growth.
Moreover, the Middle East and Africa region is a growing market for the airport baggage screening systems market. Since the Middle East region, in particular, is plagued with terrorist activities, the market for airport baggage screening has significant potential for growth. With the government authorities taking proper measures to ensure the safety of the passengers in this region, it is expected that there would be a high demand of airport baggage screeners in this region.
