The Global Cargo Container X-ray Inspection Systems Market size is projected to grow from USD 1.9 billion in 2021 to USD 2.5 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period (2021-2028). The factors driving the growth of this market are the increasing need for high-level security and safety measures across various industries such as healthcare, food & beverage, etc., growing concern over terrorism threats, and increasing demand for technology companies that offer solutions related to x-ray image processing techniques.
Cargo container x-ray inspection systems are machines that use the emission of X-rays to inspect a cargo container for contraband or weapons. They can be used in seaports, border crossings, and critical areas protection across various industries such as healthcare, food & beverage, etc. These types of machines scan metal materials with high accuracy at speeds up to 125 containers per hour. The x-Ray inspections enable detection of hidden arms and explosives without having to open any package or waste time looking inside each one manually. These devices help authorities regulate security by preventing illegal trade on earth borders while ensuring safety against terrorist attacks from unknown objects smuggled into established ports and airports. These detectors work by transmitting an extremely narrow beam of high energy electromagnetic waves through a container wall from one side to the other user devices called "X-Ray Generators", which produce images on photographic film or digital media from objects inside the container that absorb some of this radiation more than others depending on their composition and density.
On the basis of Type, the global cargo container x-ray inspection systems market is segmented into One-direction Type and Dual-view Type.
One-direction type cargo container x-ray inspection systems are used for scanning the contents of a single direction. It includes one or two imaging detectors, and it can be either floor mounted or ceiling mounted. The operator stands in front of the system to scan the incoming containers from top to bottom by using an overhead scanner with rotating drums. One-direction Type, also known as "single view" systems, generally offer a long-range for detecting contraband in cargo containers.
A dual-view type cargo container x-ray inspection system is a system that has two cameras to detect the contents of an individual box. One camera takes an image from above while another captures images at eye level, for example, laptops or other hazardous materials which could be concealed in luggage containers and then "hidden" when using just one camera positioned on top of the container. Dual views provide greater accuracy because any hidden items on either surface can cause radiation to scatter into both sensors through the other wall surface.
On the basis of Application, the global cargo container x-ray inspection systems market is segmented into seaports, border crossings, and critical areas protection.
Seaports are one of the main businesses where cargo container x-ray inspection systems can be applied. The use of these devices is to scan the containers and identify any potential threats, explosives, or weapons before they enter seaport facilities. Today, scanners are used routinely in major ports around the world for security purposes. There has been an increasing demand for such equipment which may lead to global competition among suppliers.
The application of cargo container x-ray inspection systems at border crossings has been largely used to prevent the flow of contraband, illegal drugs, and other items into a country. Border security is an important aspect for all countries around the world. The use of advanced scanning equipment can be very beneficial in preventing any type of risk from entering through borders. This will give people confidence that their government is doing what it needs to protect against terrorism and crime activities as well as legitimate trade facilitation targets.
The cargo container x-ray inspection systems are used to provide a high level of protection for critical areas, such as weapons storage nuclear power plants, gas stations, and other transportation centers, and chemical facilities. The X-rays pass through the entire contents of the containers without damaging them so that any hidden objects can be detected.
On the basis of Region, the global cargo container x-ray inspection systems market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. In 2017, North America held a major share in the global market followed by Western Europe with over 35%. The US was at the number one position among all countries in this region owing to high investments made for cargo container X-ray inspection systems as well as heightened adoption rates across different industries. This is closely followed by Canada that accounted for around 25% of total revenue from the Americas. Overall demand for x-rays globally remains strong primarily due to increased terrorism threats and security concerns which have led governments to invest heavily in such devices.
The growth can be attributed to factors such as increased government initiatives for safety and security, growing investments in port infrastructure projects to accommodate larger ships carrying more containers, increased focus on supply chain visibility and agility coupled with strong trade prospects with emerging economies. In addition, terrorism remains an important threat that has led governments across the world not only to invest heavily in cargo X-rays but also in other forms of physical inspections like profiling or swabbing, etc.
