(USGovernment-News.Com, July 05, 2019 ) The Global Vehicle Scanner Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.28% during the forecast period to reach USD 2.3 billion by 2025 from an estimated USD 1.5 billion in 2018.
A significant focus on safety and security concerns by governments and private and commercial properties along with development in infrastructure are the key factors that have led to an increase in the installation of vehicle scanner systems. Further, the continuous rise in terrorist activities worldwide has also fueled the demand for high safety and security systems within countries. Governments and private and commercial properties are focusing more on safety concerns to combat threats. To ensure safety and security, properties are installing under vehicle scanners and overhead X-ray systems for full vehicle body scanning.
Key market players:
The global vehicle scanner market is dominated by major players such as Gatekeeper Security (US), SecuScan (Germany), UVIScan (Netherlands), Leidos (US), and IRD (Canada).
Drive-through vehicle scanner estimated to account for the largest market size during the forecast period
Drive-through vehicle scanners are also known as full body scanners. Governments, military premises, and highly restricted areas are now focusing on the installation of drive-through vehicle scanners. These systems mostly use X-ray technology to scan vehicles, which help in identifying bombs, drugs, contraband, and other possible threats. This system is best suitable for scanning large vehicles at places such as airports, seaports, tolls, oil plants, and cross-border checkpoints. Manufacturers such as Rapiscan provide drive-through full vehicle body scanning systems.
Fixed/Static segment is expected to be the largest contributor to the global market during the forecast period
The fixed/static segment market is the largest contributor due to the high adoption rate in countries such as the US, Saudi Arabia, Germany, and the UK. A fixed/static vehicle scanner is usually installed in permanent vehicle scanning checkpoints. It involves high installation cost as compared with the portable/mobile vehicle scanner system because a fixed/static vehicle scanner is installed under the ground surface. The static vehicle scanner is capable of scanning the vehicle with speed ranging from 30 to 60 km/h. The system can scan, detect, and compare images automatically, making the security person’s job easier, safer, and more effective.
In application type, government/critical infrastructure protection segment is expected to be the largest market during the forecast period
The growth of the government/critical infrastructure protection sector is estimated to be the largest market. There is a higher demand for vehicle scanner systems from government institutes to secure sensitive places such as nuclear plants and oil plants. Governments of various countries install vehicle scanner systems to safeguard various military bases, defense facilities, and cross-border checkpoints. It also includes critical infrastructures such as nuclear power plants, prison facilities, and ancient monuments.
North America is expected to account for the largest market size during the forecast period
North America is the largest market for vehicle scanner. The North American market has huge potential for vehicle scanners because the region has developed infrastructures such as airports, seaports, and high-security measures to combat illegal activities and terrorism. Further, the continuous rise in terrorist activities in the region has fueled the demand for high safety and security systems within many countries. Governments and private and commercial properties are focusing more on safety concerns to combat threats. To ensure safety and security, properties are installing under vehicle scanners and overhead X-ray systems for full vehicle body scanning. To minimize illegal entries of vehicles at borders, RFID system and Under Vehicle Scanning System (UVSS) can be installed. Such factors are driving the global market in the North American region.
