Whitepaper: Reshaping the future of retail with security technology

Smart Security

“X-ray screening & biometric systems cater to nearly 50% of global security screening demand”, according to study

According to a new report by market research and consulting firm, Future Market Insights, more than half of the total demand for security screening is being accounted by the developed regional markets.

Biometrics-FacialRecognition-20Rapid growth in the economy, demanding increasing expenditure on national and infrastructural security, will continue to push deployment of reliable and advanced technology enabled security screening systems, according to Future Market Insights.

While analysis identifies an impressive rate of adoption within emerging economies, China, India, and Russia are more likely to be at the forefront of this growth, in the security screening market.

Airports generate maximum demand for security screening

Over 40% of the global security screening demand is accounted by airports, which will remain the dominant application area for security screening systems manufacturers and suppliers.

As government buildings are highly vulnerable owing to the voluminous sensitive information that they procure, public recreation areas such as malls are also cited as the next sensitive area for implementation of effective security screening. Border check points are also expected to emerge as lucrative opportunities through the coming years.

Explosive trace detectors, currently accounting for nearly a 25% share of the total sales of security screening systems, will reportedly witness strong growth in demand. According to the report, X-Ray screening systems and biometric systems are also highly popular among the end-use application areas in security screening market. The collective market value share of the aforementioned security screening systems is just-under 50% and the report expects attractiveness of the latter to surge – with growing adoption of fingerprint and face recognition technologies.

Smart security screening trending in the global market

Looking at the loopholes in current security screening models in terms of efficiency and sustainability, airports have been accelerating the industry’s shift to smart security screening solutions, over the recent past. A combined initiative of Airports Council International (ACI) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA), smart security is emerging as a streamlined solution for airlines, passengers, and their belongings. Recently, Australia’s first-ever smart security screening checkpoint was unveiled at the Melbourne Airport.
