Vehicle Scanner Market Size

Vehicle Scanner Market size surpassed USD 1.5 Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a 5% CAGR from 2023 to 2032 attributed to the increasing need for advanced security systems. The key factor driving the industry growth is the growing demand for advanced security systems that can conduct continuous inspections without disrupting passengers.

Vehicle Scanner Market

The rising infrastructure development and the increasing number of this scanner system installations to detect border trespassing, smuggling & human trafficking, and the rising access to cutting-edge security solutions that can conduct thorough inspections without upsetting passengers are some key factors propelling the vehicle scanner market dynamics. The rising government support and increased demand for full vehicle body scanning will open up new growth opportunities for vehicle scanners.

Advanced car scanners are expensive, and they frequently need software, operating systems, and other technological upgrades, which will increase the overall equipment costs. The global business growth will be constrained by the high installation & maintenance costs of vehicle scanners by 2032. The demand for scanner systems for vehicles in developed countries is low, which might restrict global development.

Vehicle Scanner Market Trends

The vehicle scanner market is said to flourish driven by increasing need for improved security and safety measure in various applications such as airports, seaports, commercial facilities and government buildings. The industry growth is backed by several factors, including increasing demand for safety and security in various applications, the need for improved efficiency and accuracy in cargo and baggage screening, and increasing adoption of advanced technologies such as AI, IoT and cloud computing. The industry development is additionally expected to be aided by government initiatives and assistance for the creation of the intelligent transportation system.


Vehicle Scanner Market Analysis

The drive through scanner segment is expected to hold a highest vehicle scanner industry share by 2032. Drive-through car scanners or full-body scanners are currently being installed in government buildings, military encampments, and other highly restricted areas. These systems primarily scan automobiles using x-ray technology, which will aid in finding bombs, drugs, contrabands, and other potential dangers. Large vehicles are scanned at locations including airports, seaports, toll booths, oil refineries, and border crossings with this technology. Manufacturers including Rapiscan offer drive-through systems for scanning the entire vehicle body.


Vehicle Scanner Market Revenue, By Scanner Type, 2021 - 2032 (USD Billion)

The fixed vehicle scanner market segment expanded 5% growth in 2022. The wide acceptance of these scanners in countries including Saudi Arabia, the U.S., Germany, and the UK is fuelling sector growth. In permanent vehicle scanning checkpoints, fixed or static vehicle scanners are typically installed. Fixed/static vehicle scanners have higher installation costs as compared to other portable/mobile vehicle scanner systems as they are placed below the Earth’s surface. A static vehicle scanner has a speed range of 30 to 60 km/h for scanning the vehicle. The technology can automatically detect, scan, and compare photos, making the work of security personnel safer, simpler, and more efficient.

Vehicle Scanner Market Revenue Share, By Scanner Type,

The vehicle scanner industry demand for government critical infrastructure protection is expected to expand at an above 5% rate during 2023-2032. The growth is attributed to the expansion of the government/critical infrastructure protection sector. Government agencies need car scanning systems to safeguard critical locations including nuclear power plants and oil refineries. Vehicle scanner systems are used by many governments to secure military installations, defence institutions, and border checkpoints as well as important infrastructures such as jails and historical sites.

The North America vehicle scanner market held the highest share of 35% in 2022. The region has a significant potential due to the continuous infrastructure development in the U.S. including airports, seaports, and strong security measures to combat criminal activities and terrorism. Strong safety & security measures are now more important across various countries due to the growth in unauthorized activities in the region. Governments as well as private and commercial institutions are emphasizing safety considerations to combat threats. Overhead x-ray equipment for full-body car scanning and under-vehicle scanners are installed in properties to increase security & safety. To prevent illegal border crossing, UVSS and RFID technologies can be implemented.
