Global commercial airports body scanners market: 6.7% CAGR expected between 2012-2016

Press release   •   Aug 21, 2013 15:57 BST

The Global Commercial Airport Full Body Scanner market is to grow at a CAGR of 6.74 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing threat of terrorist attacks. The Global Commercial Airport Full Body Scanner market has also been witnessing the pilot testing of full body scanning machines in the APAC region. However, Islamic countries' refusal to use body scanners could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

In recent years, full-body scanners are increasingly being used in pilot projects in several airports in the APAC region. Many commercial airports in the APAC region are installing full-body scanners and initiating pilot programs to test the feasibility of using these advanced devices. Full-body scanners are currently being used in trial phases in airports such as the Changi International Airport, Beijing International Airport, Delhi International Airport, Narita International Airport, Incheon International Airport, as well as the Sydney and Melbourne International Airports. Combined with other technologies, these devices could be permanently used in the passenger screening procedures at these airports, thereby fostering the growth of the market during the forecast period.

One of the major drivers in this market is the increasing threat of terrorist attacks across the globe. The 9/11 terrorist attack has prompted the TSA to tackle the issue of security with utmost seriousness, and hence it has employed full-body scanners for screening passengers at major airports.
