Global Full Body Scanner Market to Reach US$ 822.0 Million by 2032, Accelerated by Increasing Need for Enhanced Security Measures in Various Sectors

May 24, 2023 | Electronics and Semiconductors

As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Full Body Scanner Market by Technology (Millimeter Wave Scanner, X-Ray), Application (Transport, Critical Infrastructure Protection), and Region 2024-2032," the global full body scanner market size reached US$ 341.3 Million in 2023. The full-body scanner is a device that detects objects concealed under a person’s body or clothing. It utilizes advanced imaging technologies that emit low-level radiation, which passes through the human body, capturing images of internal structures. Through its three main components: the scanner unit, the data processing system, and the display interface, the system ensures the accuracy and safety of the scanning process. With its wide range of applications, the full-body scanner has found extensive usage in security checkpoints, enabling the detection of concealed weapons or contraband items. Its advantages include rapid scanning times, non-invasive nature, and the ability to generate high-resolution images, aiding in identifying potential threats. Two main types of full-body scanners are currently prevalent: X-ray scanners and millimeter wave scanners. X-ray scanners employ ionizing radiation and provide detailed images of the body's internal structures, while millimeter wave scanners use non-ionizing radiation and produce three-dimensional images of the body's surface. 

Global Full Body Scanner Market Trends:

The global full-body scanner market is primarily boosted by several key factors, including the increasing need for enhanced security measures in various sectors, such as transportation, border control, and critical infrastructure. Moreover, the rising threat of terrorism and illegal activities has surged the deployment of full-body scanners to detect concealed weapons, explosives, and contraband items, which is accelerating the market growth. Additionally, stringent government regulations and guidelines pertaining to security screening procedures in airports and public places are propelling the market growth. Furthermore, favorable advancements in imaging technology, such as the integration of millimeter-wave and X-ray imaging that offer improved scanning capabilities and enhanced detection accuracy, are boosting the market growth. Apart from this, the growing adoption of full-body scanners in healthcare facilities for medical diagnosis and patient screening is contributing to the market growth. The increasing air travel passenger traffic, continuous research and development (R&D) activities by market players, and the emergence of automated scanning systems are also providing a considerable thrust to the market growth. Apart from this, the burgeoning demand for improved passenger experience, the implementation of strict health and safety protocols, the adoption of full body scanners in prisons, the expansion of e-commerce and logistics industries, and extensive investments in airport infrastructure development are providing a significant boost to the market growth. Other factors, such as the escalating demand for non-intrusive screening methods, the need for faster and more efficient security checks, the expanding infrastructure of airports and transportation hubs, and increasing funding in security infrastructure by governments of various nations, are propelling the market growth. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 822.0 Million by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 9.7% during 2024-2032.
