Increasing Adoption of AI and Machine Learning 

The airport security market is witnessing a significant shift towards the adoption of advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of security measures. The integration of AI and ML algorithms into airport security systems can automate the process of screening and detecting threats in real-time, enabling security personnel to respond quickly and appropriately. This trend is expected to create significant growth opportunities for market players in the coming years. 

Governments worldwide are also launching programs to promote the adoption of AI and ML technologies in the aviation sector. For instance, few years back, the European Union launched the "AI4EU" (Artificial Intelligence for European Union) program to support the development of AI applications in various industries, including aviation security. The program aims to establish a network of AI expertise centers and offer funding opportunities to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to promote the development of AI solutions for the aviation sector.

How has COVID-19 had a Significant Negative Impact on the Airport Security Market? 

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the airport security market. The aviation industry was one of the hardest-hit industries, with widespread disruptions in travel demand, flight schedules, and operations. As a result of the unprecedented decline in passenger demand, most airlines had to cease all operations; entire fleets were grounded due to the crisis. Also, it affects the entire ecosystem of airports, airlines, suppliers, and service providers. In addition, flight suspensions led to a significant decrease in domestic as well as international flights. For example, according to International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the Asia Pacific and North America have experienced a higher decline in domestic passenger traffic than international passenger traffic during the pandemic.

What are the Current Market Drivers? 

Growing Threat of Terrorism 

The growing threat of terrorism has been one of the primary drivers of the airport security market globally. The increasing incidents of terror attacks and security breaches have led to a significant increase in the demand for advanced airport security solutions. The rising trend of globalization and international travel has increased the vulnerability of airports to terrorist attacks. Terrorists view airports as soft targets due to the large number of people present in a confined space. (For instance, in February 2022, Houthis attacked at Abha commercial airport, situated in Saudi Arabia. In this attack, around 12 local civilians were injured). This has led to a heightened need for security measures such as perimeter security, access control systems, surveillance systems, explosives detection systems, and others.
