Report : India and Southeast Asia Full Body Scanner Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis By Component (Hardware and Software), Technology (Millimeter Wave Scanner and X-Ray), Application (Transport and Critical Infrastructure Protection), and Detection (Manual and Automatic)
Introduction of 3D Images from Full-Body Scanners to Provide Growth Opportunities for Full body Scanner Market during 2021–2028
According to our latest market study on “India & Southeast Asia Full Body Scanner Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Analysis – by Component, Technology, Application, and Detection, and End-Use,” the market was valued at US$ 27.08 million in 2021 and is projected to reach US$ 39.07 million by 2028; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2021 to 2028.
In the era of technological developments, researchers are looking ahead to develop advanced full-body scanners. The professionals have made efforts to develop a machine that can scan a whole body from top to toe in a single shot. The scan will create a 3D image helping doctors & medical professionals to diagnose disorders and generate new treatments faster. The technology used in this type of scanner produces "movies" that detect drugs as they move from the body. These scanners are predicted to have applications ranging from tracking disease progression to improving diagnostics.
In February 2020, the authorities of Indira Gandhi International Airport—India's busiest airport—have declared the installation of 69 full-body scanners, which use millimeter wave technology that eradicates high-frequency radio waves. These scanners capture high-resolution 3D images of passengers, enabling the authorities to detect plastic weapons/explosives.
The use of body scanners across public sites is high among transport and critical infrastructures. The transport sector consists of airports, subways, railway and coach stations, and custom control booths. Critical infrastructures include borders and high-security locations such as nuclear power plants, corporate & government buildings. The airport authorities across India & Southeast Asian territory are experiencing contracts for the deployment of body scanners to detect & locate forbidden objects concealed inside a person's clothing. Below mentioned are some of the alliances made for installing the body scanners:
- The Indian government has decided to deploy full-body scanners at the ten international airports to check the smuggling of narcotics, foreign currency, and gold. Out of 30 x-ray body scanners, three each installed at Hyderabad, Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Kochi, Kozhikode, Tiruchirappalli, and Thiruvananthapuram. In addition, in 2020, Indira Gandhi International (New Delhi) airport was the first among India's airports, which was ready with technologically advanced body scanners.
- In May 2019, Singapore-based Changi Airport deployed 14 new body scanners throughout four terminals to boost security. The scanners assist in lowering screening time and enable travelers to move quickly in the busy airport.
- In Malaysia, the country's airports are replacing manual body searches with x-ray scanners & machines.
Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Full Body Scanner Market
Many developing countries characterize South-East Asia with a positive economic outlook, high industrial companies, and a vast population. The high growth rate of urbanization and industrialization in the region is anticipated to offer ample growth opportunities to the players operating in the South-East Asia full-body scanner market. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is causing considerable disruptions in the growth of various industries in Asia Pacific. Moreover, manufacturing is one of the prominent industries in the Asian economy due to the rising need for industrial and consumer products. However, due to government's measures to reduce the spread of novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 by announcing lockdowns, and travel and trade bans have disrupted and delayed the operations in manufacturing, and other industries. Thus, the slowdown of significant initiatives in APAC has subsequently reduced the demand for full-body scanners, which, in turn, has hampered the market growth.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the OEMs across India & Southeast Asia faced challenges in procuring raw material due to supply chain disruption, thereby hampering their production process. New coronavirus infections in Southeast Asia hampered factory operations across industries, jeopardizing the region's recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and impacting worldwide textiles, autos, and electronics supplies. Companies have been forced to close factories and postpone or curtail operations due to the restrictions, which come at a time when Asia's manufacturing sector is already dealing with rising raw material costs and signs of a faltering economy. Three of the region's most significant manufacturing hubs, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Thailand, manufacture goods for some of the world's most well-known consumer brands. Since April, due to COVID-19 outbreak, Vietnam required stringent lockdowns in main cities and industrial hubs, forcing electronics, textile, and footwear industries to cease or decrease operations. In recent weeks, the limits have been relaxed. However, in Southeast Asia, a sudden disruption in the supply chain has been a key stumbling block to expanding the full body scanner market.
Mistral Solutions Pvt. Ltd.; Leidos; ADANI; Nuctech Company Limited; Smiths Detection Group Ltd. (Smiths Group plc); Rapiscan Systems, Inc.; Aventura Technologies, Inc.; Westminster Group Plc; 3F Advanced System; and Rohde & Schwarz are among the key players profiled during the study of the full body scanner market. In addition, several other important market players were studied and analyzed during the course of this market research study to get a holistic view of the market and its ecosystem.
