Market Overview:

The global security metal detectors market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing terrorist threats and rising crime rates across the globe. In addition, the growing adoption of security metal detectors in various applications such as airports, railway stations, ports, schools, and others is also contributing to the growth of this market. However, factors such as high installation and maintenance costs may restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period. On basis of type, fixed security metal detectors are expected to account for a larger share than portable security metal detectors during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. This can be attributed to their low installation and maintenance costs as compared with portable security metal detectors.

Global Security Metal Detectors Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A security metal detector is a device that detects the presence of metal objects, such as firearms, knives, or contraband, concealed on or about a person's body. Security metal detectors are used in places where it is necessary to detect and deter people from carrying weapons or other dangerous items into a restricted area.


Metal detectors are used for the detection of metallic objects such as knives or guns. The global metal detectors market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing security concerns across various industry verticals. This device has gained popularity among retail stores, banks, and airports for security purposes owing to its ability to detect weapons or any other objects easily.


Portable metal detectors are the devices that are used to detect metallic objects such as weapons, knives, and explosives. They work on the principle of electromagnetic induction. The detector unit consists of a coil which is connected to an electrical circuit by way of a lead wire. When an object comes in contact with the coil it creates a fluctuation in the electric current and this can be detected by sensitive electronic circuits present within the device.

Application Insights:

The airport application segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 40% in 2017. The demand for metal detectors at airports has increased significantly owing to rising concerns regarding security threats and illegal items being smuggled into the cabin luggage. Furthermore, stringent government regulations pertaining to safety and security of passenger aircrafts are also driving the market growth. For instance, according to a recent study by CAPA Center for Aviation, Inc., nearly 4 out of 10 air travelers have some form of anxiety about airplane safety after 9/11 terrorist attacks on America's aviation system.

Station application is expected register a CAGR around 8% from 2018 to 2030 as they are widely used at major railway stations across various countries including India, China, Japan among others.

Regional Analysis:

North America accounted for the largest revenue share in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its lead over the forecast period owing to high spending on airport security and rising terrorist threats across various countries of North America. Europe is also estimated to be a promising regional market due to increasing cases of terrorism and border disputes between various countries, which has led governments of several European nations including U.K.

Asia Pacific is projected to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period owing with growing investments by governments in developing economies including India & China for implementation of advanced security systems at airports/stations/ports etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing security concerns among the general public and businesses
  • The increasing number of terrorist attacks and bombings across the globe
  • Proliferation of illegal weapons and firearms across various regions of the world
  • Stringent government regulations pertaining to safety and security in public places, airports, etc.
  • Growing demand for metal detectors from educational institutions to prevent cheating during examinations
