The global X-ray security screening system market is projected to record revenue worth over $5.5 billion by 2027, based on a GMI Inc. report. X-ray technologies are becoming more prominent as solutions to safeguard people against threats in transportation, government, and commercial sectors. X-ray security screening systems will therefore continue to gain ground as measures to counter threats over the coming years, owing to the rising threat of domestic terrorism.

According to the Center for Strategic and International Studies, there have been approximately 31 fatalities per year due to terrorist activity in the United States between 2014 and 2021, which could drive the demand for X-ray security screening system market for visual and tactile inspections.

Several transportation administrations and companies are placing a major emphasis on developing innovative X-ray security screening devices worldwide. Following are 5 key initiatives influencing the X-ray security screening system market dynamics:

1. S&T — Xoran partnership to design 3D X-ray scanner

The strong focus of major homeland security services providers on developing cutting-edge screening equipment and protocols is one of the key reasons behind the rising popularity of X-ray screening systems. For instance, in June 2021, Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) partnered with Xoran Technologies, LLC to design a compact 3D X-ray scanner. This one-of-a-kind imaging tool was designed to detect explosive devices and other components in containers or bags, as well as identify and alert authorities to potential threats, thus ensuring traveler safety.

2. Analogic’s Computed Tomography X-ray machines for airport security scanning

To enhance aviation security, government bodies are increasing their investment in high-tech machines worldwide. To cite an instance, in March 2022, the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) awarded a $781.2 million contract to Analogic to introduce Computed Tomography X-ray machines to enable thorough and quick scanning of carry-on items at airports. These CT X-ray systems have been equipped with algorithms to detect explosives, weapons, and other dangerous items, thus emerging as a reliable and fast method of airport security scanning.

3. DMRC’s baggage scanning system for metro stations

Apart from airport security scanners, there has been a strong focus on the development of next-gen baggage scanners for railway applications. For example, in April 2022, DMRC (Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Limited) started introducing its baggage scanning system at the security checkpoints of Metro stations in a phased manner to boost the safety and convenience of passengers. These baggage scanners were equipped with advanced features, such as continuous audio-video monitoring and faster baggage clearance, to ensure extra security and safety of passengers.

4. Jawaharlal Nehru Port’s mobile X-ray scanners to inspect containers

To enhance the security and efficacy of container ports, several innovative X-ray security scanners are being installed, especially in developing nations. To cite an instance, in June 2021, India-based Jawaharlal Nehru Port announced the installation of two mobile X-ray scanners across the Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal and APM Terminal. These mobile scanners were developed to inspect the containers in the terminal premises, thus providing security agencies an advantage to take key actions before the container is allowed to exit.

5. Thales’ HELIXVIEW for nanotechnology-based electronic scanning at airports

The advancement of technologies like 3D imaging and nanotechnology is playing a major role in boosting the productivity of X-ray security scanner manufacturers. In June 2022, Thales launched HELIXVIEW, its innovative, compact, stationary, and lightweight EDS CB (Cabin Baggage Explosive Detection System). This C3-compliant scanner combined X-ray nanotechnology-based electronic scanning as well as 3D imaging reconstruction to bring higher security and seamless travel facilities for air passengers.

With the rising emphasis on the adoption of appropriate technical means to inspect passengers, cargo, and luggage at checkpoints, the development of reliable scanners for use in commercial, government, and industrial settings has increased considerably. As a result, the X-ray security screening system market is projected to witness a substantial growth trajectory, as a solution for better safety in public spaces over the years ahead.
