Global Information would like to present a new market research report, "People Screening Portals: Technologies & Global Markets - 2010-2014" by Homeland Security Research.
Significant lapses in airport security measures across the globe have been revealed in recent events resulting from compromised security that have prompted a flurry of activity to not only enforce existing guidelines, but also to implement new, more stringent procedures. Hence, the onset of a revolution in the people screening marketplace characterized by shifting away from metal detector portal-based screening systems to more advanced, premium detection technologies. More specifically, in monetary terms, this means that the market will upgrade from systems that traditionally cost around $5,000 - $25,000 to those that cost in the range of $100,000 - $250,000.
Homeland Security Research Corporation (HSRC) predicts the total people screening portals market (including maintenance, upgrade and refurbishment, systems sales) to more than triple from $0.6 billion in the year 2009 to over $2 billion by the year 2014. There are also several sub-markets to the people screening portals market, which include: ETD Portals and Devices, Multi-model, Whole Body Scanners, Multi-threat Portals, Walk-by Sensor Systems, Liquid Explosive Detectors, Shoe Scanners, Metal Detection Portals & Devices. Some of the largest national markets in people screening portals will include these countries: US, Japan, UK, India, Germany, China, and Brazil.
