Market Overview:

The global walk-through metal detection market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing security concerns and the rising terrorist threats across the globe. Additionally, the growing adoption of walk-through metal detectors for various applications such as airports, railway stations, and ports is also contributing to the growth of this market. However, factors such as high installation and maintenance costs are restraining the growth of this market.

Global Walk-through Metal Detection Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A walk-through metal detector is a device that uses electromagnetic fields to detect objects made of metal carried on or near a person. They are commonly used in security screening scenarios to detect metallic items such as weapons, tools, and jewelry that might be carried on someone's body. Metal detectors can also be used to find hidden metallic objects in other settings such as at the entrance of a building or within an area being searched for contraband.

LC Oscillating Metal Detector:

Metal detectors are an essential security equipment used in airports, sports arenas, government buildings and other commercial places. Metal detectors help to detect metallic objects including weapons, knives or any kind of explosives which may cause a blast or explosion. These devices are also used for the protection of personnel from IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) as they can trigger off when a metal is rubbed against an explosive material such as tripwire or another Improvised Explosive Device (IED).

Pulse Induction (PI) Metal Detector:

Metal detectors are an effective security equipment used in airports, sports arenas, and other public places to detect metallic objects. Metal detectors have become a part of everyday life as they are widely used across the world for security purposes. PI metal detector is one such device which uses electromagnetic induction to detect metals.

Application Insights:

The others application segment includes industrial, government and public institutions, healthcare facilities, and airport. The demand for the product is expected to grow at a significant rate owing to its ability to detect low-density metals in various applications including airports. Airport walk-through metal detectors are used before boarding of an aircraft or while entering the secured area of an airport. These devices help in detecting low-quality metallic objects including knives, guns, and other weapons that may be concealed on a person¢â‚¬â„¢s body or belongings.

Airport authorities across the world are focusing on enhancing their security measures post 11th September 2001 attacks by Al Qaeda terrorists from Afghanistan against major aviation hubs such as Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) & Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD).

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global walk-through metal detection market in 2017. The U.S., which is the largest consumer of security equipment and services, has witnessed a significant rise in demand for MTPD systems over the past few years owing to growing terrorist threats at airports across the country. In addition, rising crime rates have led to an increase in passenger security measures such as body scanners and walk-through metal detectors at various airports across North America including New York's LaGuardia Airport; Los Angeles International Airport (LAX); Miami International Airport; Chicago O'Hare airport; Dallas/Fort Worth airport; Tampa airport and Orlando Sanford International Airport among others.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for security from the aviation and transportation sector
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of walk-through metal detectors over traditional security systems
  • Rising terrorist threats and incidents across the globe
  • Proliferation of illegal weapons and explosives that need to be detected at various points of entry
  • Government initiatives to deploy more walk-through metal detectors at public places for enhanced safety
