Rising commercial construction activities, particularly the establishment of large shopping centers will propel the demand for sophisticated x-ray security screening systems. These devices enable faster and more accurate scanning of people as well as products such as bags, and luggage. Rapidly modernizing infrastructure and public needs have led to a substantial rise in the number of mega malls, and hypermarkets in recent years. As a result, advanced security screening systems are swiftly replacing aging inspection techniques as they are extremely time-consuming and prone to errors. The ability of scanners to effectively detect hazardous materials and weapons in hidden compartments of bags is accelerating the deployment of these technologies in public spaces.

Dearth of substantial capital resources to hinder X-ray security screening system market dynamics

Need for significant capital resources may impede the deployment of X-ray security screening systems. The entire process of procuring an x-ray scanning device right from purchase to installation of the security hardware and the cost of components is capital-intensive. These devices require frequent maintenance to ensure that the equipment is functioning well. Additionally, the process of installation and maintenance depends on technical interventions, which further adds to the overall expenses of these systems. However, ongoing innovation and integration of technologies such as AI, deep learning, and machine learning will enhance the performance capabilities of X-ray security screening devices.

Impact of COVID-19 pandemic on X-ray security screening system market dynamics

COVID-19 pandemic had a slightly negative impact on the X-ray security screening system industry outlook. The emergence of the novel pandemic led to significant disruptions on commercial, and industrial levels. Due to the fast spread of the virus and a surge in hospitalization and mortality rate associated with COVID-19, governments worldwide imposed very strict lockdown restrictions. These new norms led to a partial to complete shutdown of commercial infrastructures such as airports, thus reducing the need for security screening devices.

In April 2020, the daily security screenings at U.S. airports plummeted to 87,534 hit by the pandemic. However, with reducing infection rate, and easing pandemic-related restrictions, air travel is picking pace. For instance, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) reported that the number of people passing through security checkpoints reached 2,081,297 on December 22, 2021, twice that of the previous year, and 7% more than in 2019.
