According to Research Report Insights (RRI) report, titled “Explosive Detection Technologies Market by 2024”, the global explosive detection technologies market in 2016 is projected to rise year over year at a growth rate of 5.4%, accounting for US$ 5.4 billion and is estimated to exhibit CAGR of 5.2%, accounting for US$ 3.9 billion in the forecast period from 2016 to 2024.
Globally, the demand for these technologies of explosive detection is mainly expected in the airport areas for safety purposes. Also, growing rules and norms for ensuring security around the world and increasing volume of passengers are boosting the market for explosive detection technologies. Moreover, ongoing airport construction areas as well as rising perception of terror threat are driving the market demand for explosive detection technologies across the globe. Also, increasing geo-political unrest in several countries is estimated to fuel the market growth in the years to come. However, developing explosive devices that are improvised is a key market restraint for explosive detection technologies. Also, detection of explosive requires intensive labor to do the process faster in order to avoid delays and this factor is impeding the growth of the global market for explosive detection technologies in the coming years.
The global explosive detection technologies market is categorized into technology, function, end-user and regions.
