X-ray imaging technology to account for the largest share of the contraband detector market

A wide variety of concealed materials, including both metallic and non-metallic threat items, can be detected using X-ray screening systems. Substantial investments have been made in developing X-ray scanning systems to identify potential threats by people and their luggage. These X-ray scanners can identify harmful, organic, inorganic, and metal materials. Security X-ray machines use low dose penetrating radiation to detect metallic and non-metallic objects hidden under clothing or body cavities. Energy transmission, backscatter, and computed tomography (CT) are the major X-ray screening technologies.

Baggage & cargo screening segment is expected to dominate the contraband detector market during the forecast period

As the passenger traffic is increasing day-by-day, advanced security systems and contraband detector systems have high demand at places such as airports and seaports. Strict rules and regulations regarding banned or restricted items, such as explosive materials, flammable items, and radioactive materials, in carry-on and checked baggage need to be followed to avoid any unlawful activities. Apart from airports, other public places also require screening of baggage to ensure a secure environment. X-ray imaging and computed tomography are main scanning techniques used for screening baggage. It is mandatory to screen baggage and cargo in all countries across the world.
