National security is of vital importance at critical infrastructures such as airports. In recent years, the policy and aim of many authorities has shifted from potential threat identification to deploying measures that prevent infiltration of any type of threats into the infrastructure. Demand for quicker and efficient screening has culminated in the design and development of advanced screening systems that are being employed worldwide.

However, economic turmoil and lack of funds for public spending new development and construction, as well upgrade of existing airports. In addition, effectiveness of existing security equipment in combating threats and lack of a tangible return on investment has discouraged operators from purchasing new technology solutions. Existing retrofits and shift towards automated security solutions as an alternative to human labor is expected to provide market growth opportunity over the coming years
