Metal detector is a device, which is used for detection of metals or weapons at airport, hotels, railways stations, and many other public and private places. Airports in particular are considered to be soft target by terrorists. Hence, airport are always deployed with various security measures. Majority of the weapons are metals in the form of knives, guns, scissors, razors blades, and others that are detected by these detectors. There are various types of metal detectors, which are used for airport security such as fixed type (walk-through metal detectors) and portable type (handheld).

The Global Airport Metal Detector Market was valued at US$ 2,567.12 Mn in 2021.

Recent Developments:

  • In January 2020, L3Harris Security & Detection Systems and Transportation Security Administration (TSA), a government body of the U.S. entered into a partnership. Through this partnership, L3Harris Security & Detection Systems will provide 100 metal detectors to U.S. airports.

Restraint:

  • High cost of metal detectors is expected to restrain growth of the global airport metal detectors market over the forecast period.

 Global Airport Metal Detector Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic:

The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the global airport metal detector market. Metal Detector is widely used on Airports, Malls, Army camp areas, etc., as they have the capability to detect the nearby presence of metal. Due to the pandemic, the tours and travels industry was shut so they have faced financial crises due to which many new projects were suspended which directly impacted the sales of the metal detectors used in airports, and malls. Hence, the global airport metal detector market witnessed slow growth during the pandemic.

North America held a dominant position in the Global Airport Metal Detector Market in 2021

Statistics:

North America region dominated the Global Airport Metal Detector Market in 2021, accounting for a 27% share in terms of value, followed by Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America, respectively

A metal detector is an electronic device, which detects the presence of metals. Metal detectors are useful for detecting hidden metal objects at airports, railway stations, bus stations, and other public and private places. Metal detectors are categorized into two types such as hand held metal detector and walk-through metal detectors. Moreover, these metal detector consists of components such as sensor creates an electromagnetic wave and reflector, which acts as wave reflector. When a metal comes in close contact with these detectors, the waves are blocked by metals objects and circuit remains open causing an alarm to ring.

The Global Airport Metal Detectors Market is estimated to account for US$ 4,601.78 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2030.

Market Dynamics

Terrorist activities all over the world are increasing at a rapid pace driving governments and airport security agencies to upgrade their security infrastructure continuously. For instance, according to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, in 2018, around 4,320 number of guns were detected at airports in the U.S. This number is expected to increase over the forecast period.

Conflict between two countries force security agencies to implement additional security measures at airports and major public places. For instance, in January 2020, according to a Statement given by United States Department of Defense, the U.S. killed Iranian general Qasem Soleimani of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in drone attack near Baghdad airport. After this incident, there is tension between two counties. This is why airports across all the U.S. are on high alert. These factors are expected to drive the global metal detectors market over the forecast period.

However, due to advancement in technology, the nature of attacks by terrorists is also changing. For instance, instead of pistol they prefer plastic explosives, which are not detected by metal detectors. This is expected to hamper growth of the market over the forecast period.
