Construction of New Airports is Likely to Provide Future Opportunities for Market Vendors During the Forecast Period.

The rising construction of new airports across different countries is expected to boost the deployment of contraband detectors. For instance, according to plans released by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) in 2021, China has planned to build 215 airports by the end of 2035 which is one of the major factors expected to catalyse the demand for smart airport systems during the forecast period. Moreover, according to the plans released by Civil Aviation Ministry of India in 2022, the country plans to initiate 220 new airport projects by 2025. Such instances are expected to generate new market opportunities for market vendors during the forecast period.

Airport Upgrades and Expansion is Likely to Drive the Contraband Detector Market Growth.

The growing expansion of existing airports is driving the deployment of contraband detectors across the world. For instance, in 2022, the San Diego International Airport announced that it is planning a major airport upgrade wherein a new terminal with 19 gates will be constructed and the old terminal will then be demolished at the airport in California, US. This will also include the installation of safety and smart security systems. The smart security systems will also include the deployment of x-ray contraband detector security systems which is another major factor driving the demand for contraband detector market globally.
