Explosive Detector Market Drivers
Rise in investments done in Military & Defense sector drives market growth
With the increasing investments in Military and Defense sector especially in leading economies such as US, China and India, the manufacturing of military equipment has been very high which promotes ongoing technology developments. Developments in Military & Defense sector has been a prime focus of majority of leading economies. According to World Bank Reports, the overall Military Expenditure has been highest in US of about $731.75 billion, followed by China with $261.08 billion and India with $71.12 billion in 2019 and is expected to rise in forecast period due to ongoing territorial disputes between India and China. This increasing investment tends to drive the market growth of Explosive Detectors in global market.
Rise in demand of Explosive Detectors in Aviation industry
The demand of Explosive Detectors has been always high in Military & Defense sector, but nowadays, with the increasing terrorist attacks in many parts of the world, the economies are trying to increase their security at airports as it is the major hub of worldwide connectivity. According to International Air Transport Association (IATA), it is necessary to have regular inspections of explosives and other flammable substances at airports to increase the safety of passengers as well as countries. IATA introduced the inspection of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) into a security restricted area of an airport and onto an aircraft, by a person (passenger, crew staff) including the baggage (cabin baggage, hold baggage and other personal or professional baggage) which is considered as high risk in the ICAO Aviation Security Global Risk Context statement. IATA proposed urgent deployment of effective and sustainable explosive detection screening capabilities for all screening processes especially for these IEDs. These security guidelines increased the installation and application of Explosive Detectors in Aviation industry which tend to drive its market growth.
Explosive Detector Market Challenges
Inability to trace IEDs
One of the major challenges faced by Explosive Detector Market globally is the inability to trace Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). IEDs are basically a homemade bomb, constructed from military or non-military components, that is frequently employed by terrorists and people of wrong means to imbalance the society. It acts as an effective weapon against a conventional military force. When used as roadside bombs, IEDs can interdict lines of communication, disrupt traffic and damage or destroy targeted vehicles. Large-vehicle borne IEDs are one of the most dangerous IEDs. IEDs can be made of many different kinds of objects and materials, including artillery or mortar rounds, aerial bombs, certain types of fertilizers, TNT and other explosives. IEDs can also contain radiological, chemical or biological components to increase their lethal and psychological effects. These makes it difficult for the Explosive Detectors to determine the explosive content which brings a major challenge in the market growth of Explosive Detectors in global level. However, with ongoing developments, explosive detectors will be capable of tracing IEDs in future.
