COVID-19 Scenario:

  • The global X-ray security screening market experienced a significant impact from the COVID-19 pandemic. The demand for security screening systems at airports and transportation hubs decreased with travel restrictions and border closures. In addition, delayed infrastructure projects and budget constraints further affected market growth.
  • However, the pandemic highlighted the importance of safety and security and generated a growing interest in advanced screening technologies. In response, X-ray security screening vendors introduced touchless and contactless solutions to address health concerns. As restrictions eased, airports and malls implemented non-contact methods like X-ray screening and automated checkpoints. Thus, this increases the X-ray security screening industry's growth.

The People Screening Segment to maintain its Leadership Status during the forecast period

Based on application, the people screening segment held the major share in 2022, accounting for more than three-fifths of the global x-ray security screening market revenue, and it is expected to maintain its leadership status during the forecast period. The continuous demand for enhanced security measures in high-risk locations, such as airports and government buildings, drives the sustained growth of people screening applications. On the other hand, the product screening segment would display the highest CAGR of 10.4% from 2023 to 2032. Factors contributing to its dominance include the increasing need for stringent security measures in response to rising security threats and the growing importance of securing supply chains and critical infrastructure in various industries, such as logistics and manufacturing.

The Transit Segment is Projected to Rule the Roost by 2032

Based on end use, the transit segment held the largest share in 2022, contributing to nearly two-fifths of the global x-ray security screening market revenue, and is projected to rule the roost by 2032. The same segment would also showcase the fastest CAGR of 10.05% from 2023 to 2032. The remarkable growth of the transit segment can be attributed to several factors. Its continued dominance is fueled by increasing global passenger numbers and growing security concerns. The introduction of innovative screening technologies, such as walk-through body scanners and baggage screening systems, contributes to its remarkable growth.  

North America to Maintain its Dominance Throughout the Forecast Period

Based on region, North America held the highest market share in 2022, garnering nearly two-fifths of the global x-ray security screening market revenue, and is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. The growth is attributed to advanced screening technologies, investments in security infrastructure, and the presence of major airports. However, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 10.56% from 2023 to 2032. This is due to rapid urbanization, population growth, and increased critical infrastructure, which drive the demand for X-ray security screening solutions. Additionally, significant economic development, international trade activities, and government investments in advanced security scanners further fuel market growth in the region.
