Global Air Cargo Security and Screening Systems Market to Reach US$ 1,485.4 Million by 2032, Impelled by Increasing Security Threats

February 24, 2023 | Aerospace and Defense

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Air Cargo Security and Screening Systems Market Report by Technology (X-Ray Systems, ETD (Explosive Trace Detection), EDS (Explosive Detection Systems)), Size of Screening Systems (For Small Cargo, For Break and Pallet Cargo, For Oversized Cargo), Application (Narcotics Detection, Explosive Detection, Metal and Contraband Detection), and Region 2024-2032," the global air cargo security and screening systems market reached a value of US$ 940.3 Million in 2023. Air cargo refers to goods, besides baggage, that are transported by aircraft. Items shipped by airplane include time-sensitive and high-value commodities, which requires enhanced protection. Air cargo security and screening systems help protect cargo from theft and other types of danger. Security is a very vital element of the air cargo supply chain. These screening systems include explosives detection systems, trace detection, x-ray systems, TSA-certified explosives detection canine teams, and physical searches. They allow the identification and screening of parcels containing chemicals and other liquid substances. Air cargo security and screening systems are widely employed to detect threats, explosives, knives, narcotics, firearms, and contraband. Various techniques, such as narcotics detectors, explosives detection systems, and non-computed tomography, are also used in air cargo security and screening.

Global Air Cargo Security and Screening Systems Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by the increasing utilization of advanced screening technologies. In line with this, the rising security threats across the globe are leading to the rapid adoption of advanced technology-based equipment, such as transmission X-ray and non-computed tomography, which, in turn, is significantly contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the governments of various countries are integrating technology-based screening at airports to enhance air cargo security and safety. Moreover, the escalating awareness about superior quality air cargo security among governments and companies is encouraging technology developers to develop enhanced and highly efficient security systems. This, in turn, is expected to accelerate the market growth. Besides, the development of separate cargo terminals and the increasing collaborations and partnerships among supply chain enterprises are offering numerous opportunities for market expansion. Additionally, the rising requirement for powerful security and screening systems is providing a boost to the market. On account of the factors above, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 1,485.4 Million by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.1% during 2024-2032.
