DUBLIN, July 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Airport Passenger Screening Market" report to their offering.

The events of 9-11 forever changed how the world views airport security and today serves as the rationale for higher security at airports all over the world. Better technologies and more stringent traveler guidelines were developed because passenger screening serves as a last line of defense. Demand for speedier, more-efficient screening has resulted in innovations such as Transportation Security Administration PreCheck, explosive trace detection, and automated passport control kiosks. This research reviews the global airport passenger screening market by identifying major participants, key market drivers and restraints, and regional market forecasts.

Airport passenger screening has come under much scrutiny in 2015 after US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screeners failed to detect simulated explosives and weapons that successfully passed through checkpoints during TSA-conducted tests.

The threat of terrorism continues to be the most influential market driver, though efficient checkpoint processing is in high demand by airports to reduce traveler wait times.

Governments and airports prefer to minimize spending on maintenance of screening equipment and employee training that result in operational downtime and affect traveler experience.

North America continues to be the largest consumer of airport passenger screening technologies, accounting for an estimated % of market spending. Airport checkpoint operations is the largest market segment, consisting of advanced imaging technologies (AIT), explosives detection systems (EDS), X-ray systems for carry-on baggage, and (in some regions) boarding pass verification technologies.

The passport control segment has the smallest market share; however, innovations such as automated passport control (APC) kiosks in North America coupled with the growing demand for automated border control (ABC) systems in other regions will contribute to growth.
