The global air cargo security market size is projected to grow from USD $1.7 billion in 2017 to USD $3.4 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 11.5% during the forecast period (2018-2028). The North American region dominated the global air cargo security market and accounted for over one-third of the total share in 2017. This trend is expected to continue during the forecast period due to increasing concerns about terrorism and strict regulations imposed on airlines for security measures such as screening passengers and baggage, which are likely to drive demand for advanced systems in this region.
Air cargo security is the process of protecting air shipments from terrorist attacks or other forms of sabotage. This can be achieved through a variety of methods, including pre-flight scanning and checking, in-transit screening at transit points such as an airport baggage handling area (known as "gates"), identification checks onboard aircraft before departure to ensure that all passengers are listed on flight manifests and their carry-on baggage contains no prohibited items; physical inspection by explosives detection equipment upon arrival at final destination airports for ground transportation modes like trucks and trains; implementation of tight control over access to restricted areas where aircraft park overnight; security guards patrolling communal areas outside arrivals halls during gate hours with responsibility for responding to any suspicious packages or behavior among passengers waiting to board flights; and the installation of surveillance cameras.
On the basis of type, the global air cargo security market is segmented into x-ray systems, human-heartbeat detection systems, and others.
X-ray systems are the most common form of security equipment used in air cargo security. They help identify and locate items that might be hidden inside boxes or containers being shipped by identifying objects on their surface like metal, plastics, organics, etc.
Human-heartbeat detection systems are sensors that detect the human heart rate of people in a specific area and can be used for security purposes. These devices emit ultra-high-frequency sound waves which travel through walls, floors, ceilings, and other objects to locate humans by sensing their natural heartbeat patterns.
On the basis of application, the global air cargo security market is segmented into advanced personnel screening, air cargo security screening, and aviation checkpoint solutions.
Advanced personnel screening is the most crucial application segment of the market as it ensures that no person with a criminal background or any other kind of documents can enter an airport terminal building. In addition, advanced personnel screening is required for all passengers at the checkpoint, as well as luggage and other items that enter the terminal building.
Ongoing terrorist attacks in airports around the world are prompting governments of various countries to invest in more security measures to reduce risks associated with air cargo security threats such as theft or hijacking. This has led to an increase in demand for advanced personnel screening equipment which will eventually lead to increased market growth during the forecast period from 2018-2028.
Air cargo security screening provides safety to passengers by preventing concealed items from entering inside aircraft while on the ground. This is usually done by checking the passenger’s baggage and cargo. Regardless of the type, every country has a set of regulations to be followed for air cargo security screening. The following are some examples:
-Airlines should have an approved container protocol plan in place before they can ship cargo or mail through any other airport; and
-An airline’s containers must be scanned by an X-ray machine before being loaded onto the plane.
Aviation checkpoint solution detects unauthorized individuals before they are allowed into restricted areas, thus providing comfort to travelers. An aviation checkpoint solution is a security system that uses advanced technologies to detect any threat from criminals or terrorists. Aviation checkpoints are implemented at airports, seaports, and other transportation hubs in order to inspect all incoming travelers for weapons or explosives before they enter the restricted area. These systems can also be used as a standalone inspection procedure on non-passenger vehicles.
An aviation checkpoint solution includes the following: an airport security screening system, a baggage X-ray machine, and sophisticated detection equipment which can detect firearms or explosives in cargo containers located on airplanes. The inspection process is carried out by staff that is specially trained to carry out these tasks and will typically require proper identification before proceeding through the checkpoint.
On the basis of region, the global air cargo security market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.
North America: The North American region accounted for the largest market share in 2017, with over $250 million. This can be attributed to the high demand for cargo screening solutions and an increasing number of security breaches at airports in recent years.
Latin America: The Latin American region is expected to grow at a moderate pace during the forecast period owing to constant investments in airport security infrastructure.
Europe: European countries are witnessing an increase in air cargo shipments, which has led to increased demand for improved screening procedures and innovative technology solutions. Europe accounted for $200 million in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 13% during the forecast period.
Asia Pacific: The Asia-Pacific region accounted for $200 million in market share, with China leading the ranking followed by India.
Middle East & Africa: Middle Eastern countries are increasingly investing in advanced security solutions because of the high incidence of terrorism and illegal trafficking. The region is expected to witness a CAGR of over 12% during the forecast period owing to increased investments in airports security infrastructure
-Increased global trade and passenger volumes, leading to an increase in air cargo shipments.
-Airlines are increasingly focused on security with the implementation of new regulations across a range of areas including baggage checks, screening processes for passengers as well as heightened restrictions on what can be carried into aircraft cabins. This has driven increased demand for advanced technologies such as high-energy X-ray systems that have proven their ability to detect explosives concealed within luggage by detecting dense objects or substances hidden between layers and under pockets/seams.
