The contraband detector market is projected to grow at a CAGR 5.89% rate during the forecast period. Factors such as growing security concerns due to rapid urbanization, rising government investments for improvement of existing transit facilities & construction of new transit locations (such as airports), and ongoing technological advancements in security screening systems are driving the growth of the market.

X-ray imaging technology expected to account for a larger share of the  market.  Security X-ray machines use low dose penetrating radiation to detect metallic and non-metallic objects hidden under clothing or in body cavities. Energy transmission, backscatter, and computed tomography (CT) are the major X-ray screening technologies used. Energy transmission and backscatter type x-ray imaging technologies are used for screening people and baggage (to some extent).

The transportation application is expected to hold the largest market share since most transit facilities, such as airports, railway stations, and seaports, have adopted x-ray imaging systems as security measures. The retail application is expected to witness the highest CAGR in the market as retail stores and malls are more prone to security threats and require thorough scanning of people, baggage, and luggage.

Fixed contraband detectors to account for the largest market share during the forecast period. These are used to detect the contraband items and are anchored at one place of a facility or entrance. A few of the examples of fixed contraband detector systems include door frame metal detectors and walk-through metal detectors that are useful at security checkpoints and entrance gates for screening people and their luggage

APAC to witness highest CAGR in market during the forecast period

China and Japan mainly dominate the APAC market due to the increasing investments for security in-transit applications such as airports, metro stations, and seaports. In recent times, several APAC countries experienced security threats which compelled the governments to upgrade their security measures by investing a significant amount in developing and installing security systems. Thus, the market is expected to grow at the highest rate in the region.

Key market players includes L3 Technologies (US), OSI Systems (US), Smiths Group (UK), NUCTECH (China), Magal Security Systems (Israel), Metrasens (UK), ADANI Systems (UK), Godrej Security Solutions (India), CEIA (Italy), and Berkeley Varitronics Systems (US)
