Global spending on aviation security to reach $22.3 billion in 2012

LONDON, 27 March 2012. The aviation security market has evolved in response to new threats. As demand for air travel continues to grow annually, governments and aviation enforcement authorities face the need to adopt strict safety measures to counter terrorist threats before they occur whilst limiting the inconvenience faced by the passenger. Existing threats, rising passenger numbers, and airport expansion projects mean that the global aviation security market will reach $22.3 billion in 2012, according to Visiongain analysts.

The prevailing economic conditions faced by North America and Europe have meant that projected sales forecasts are restrained; however, the impact of these economic constraints to the overall aviation security industry will be limited as in the longer-term safety and security continue to remain a priority. Upgrades to existing security features and investment in R&D will help to maintain steady growth in these markets, according to the report.

Elsewhere, growth within Asian aviation security markets, such as China and India, is forecast to be significant; in the longer term, Middle Eastern spending on aviation security is expected to increase sharply to meet the demand for new technology systems. 

The report forecasts and analyses four key categories of aviation security technologies over the period 2012-2022.


    - Passenger and Baggage Screening

    - Perimeter and Access Control

    - Digital Surveillance

    - Biometrics
