Which companies would dominate the market in terms of share? Which region is likely to generate the maximum revenue? Market Drivers Rising Threats of Bomb Attack, Man Pads, & Hijacks to Spur Growth In the aviation industry, rising number of suspicious activities and terror threats are creating high demand for robust frontline passenger security systems across the globe. It is anticipated to propel the passenger screening system market growth in the coming years. Numerous countries are already facing vital concerns regarding passengers who often try to carry illegal weapons, liquid explosives, and prohibited drugs. Hence, the provisions for the aviation authorities are enhanced by the international regulatory frameworks to detect and prevent such cases. The major types of threats are hijacks, man pads, and bomb attack. These malicious activities require maximum layers of security. By installing state-of-the-art technology systems, such potential hazards can be restricted. Covid-19 Pandemic to Slow Down Growth of Aviation Industry The outbreak of Covid-19 worldwide is considered to be a significant factor of global crisis. It is impacting the aviation industry negatively. The industry is showcasing a fall in finances owing to the lockdown measure in every country. It has, in turn, declined the number of inbound passenger flights in the Middle East, Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) declared that by the end of 2020, the year-on-year passenger revenue is anticipated to lower by USD 252 billion. This pandemic may hamper the market growth by lowering the demand for these security systems. Segment- Airport Segment to Dominate Backed by Rising Passenger Preference for Air Transport In terms of end user, the market is segregated into port, railways, airport, and others. The airport segment held the maximum passenger screening equipment market share in 2019 and is likely to lead during the forthcoming period. This growth is attributable to the rapid inclination of travellers towards air transport. It is occurring because of the availability of affordable air tickets, as well as rising disposable income of the masses. In 2019, there was a positive development of 4.5% in domestic air travel. It would boost the requirement of passenger security systems.

Amongst these, North America procured USD 1.96 Billion revenue in 2019. This growth mainly occurred because of the presence of numerous reputed passenger security system manufacturers in the U.S. Asia Pacific, on the other hand, stood in the second position in 2019. The region is experiencing considerable upgradation of commercial airports. Therefore, such initiatives to develop infrastructure would upsurge growth of the market. Competitive Landscape- Key Companies Engage in Investments to Develop Unique Security Products   The market houses renowned companies, such as Honeywell International Inc., SITA, and Smiths Detection Group Ltd.
