Global Freight Scanners Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A freight scanner is a device that is used to scan barcodes on items that are being shipped. This allows the shipping company to track the items and ensure that they are delivered to the correct destination. The importance of freight scanners is that they allow companies to track their shipments and ensure that they are delivered on time and without any damage.

Dual View X-ray Scanner:

The dual-view X-ray scanner is a device that can scan the baggage and cargo in both forward and backward directions simultaneously. It helps in scanning small, medium or large objects easily due to its ability to provide an enhanced image of the object. The major advantage of using such a scanner is that it allows professionals to scan several items at once without hampering their efficiency.

Single View X-ray Scanner:

Single-view or sometimes called as single-shot x-ray scanners, are a series of flat panels with an X-ray source mounted at the center. The image is formed on the surface by positioning the panel at a certain angle to the incident X-rays and capturing the view on its surface. These devices are used for scanning various types of freight including containers, trucks, railway cars and pallets among others.

Application Insights:

The other application segment includes seaports, warehouse complexes and industrial sites. The use of freight scanners at these locations is expected to witness significant growth on account of the growing concerns over cargo theft and pilferage. According to a study published by the World Economic Forum in 2017, around USD 40 billion worth of cargo are stolen from global ports annually. To avoid such losses, various governments are focusing on establishing secure facilities at their seaports thereby driving the adoption of freight scanners at these locations as well as increasing their usage across all major airports globally.

Subway station was the largest application segment with a market share of 35% in terms of revenue in 2017 owing to high passenger traffic along with rising concerns over safety amongst users which is further anticipated to drive demand for advanced x-ray systems that can detect suspicious objects within minutes enabling quick response during emergencies such as train or subway accidents or terrorist attacks etc., thus augmenting overall market growth over the forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The growth of the region can be attributed to several factors such as increasing investments in infrastructure development, growing e-commerce industry, and stringent regulations for security screening of packages at airports. Moreover, technological advancements coupled with high disposable income are expected to fuel demand over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to rising investments by various government agencies and private companies for developing freight transportation systems within their respective countries. For instance, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has introduced a new regulation that requires all railway operators in China to install X-ray technology on all trains by 2020.

Europe is also estimated to hold a considerable share owing both its large population as well as high trade volume across countries within Europe itself.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for organized and efficient freight management system
  • Rising number of online shoppers and need for fast and reliable delivery services
  • Proliferation of e-commerce businesses and the consequent increase in demand for scanners to manage their inventory
  • Growing trend of just-in-time manufacturing that requires quick, accurate, and reliable scanning solutions
  • Increased adoption of barcode technology in various industries
