The 82% of U.S. People Screening Market That’s NOT Airport Security
Despite attracting most of the attention, Airport Security constitutes only 18% of the U.S. People Screening market. The bulk of the market demand will come from other sub-markets including government & public facilities (e.g., federal facilities, prisons, courthouses, secured perimeters, schools), border checkpoints, diplomatic facilities, land & sea transportation security and other private sector facilities.
The U.S. people security screening market is transforming at a rapid pace. A major shift in the use of ICT technologies and customers’ new demands lead to a reshuffling of people screening submarkets market share, and an overall 6.2% 2013-2020 CAGR.
2013 U.S. People Screening Market Share [%]: by Vertical Market
In the past, changes in the people screening market occurred less frequently and were mostly non-transformational, leaving products and systems providers on solid ground. Today, however, in order to be successful, vendors must embrace agility and convergence due to the following three major shifts:
- The market demand to automate (or semi-automate) the screening process (e.g., integration of legacy systems into the ICT-based people identification infrastructure) wherever possible.
- Extensive introduction of biometric & other ID documents screening systems (e.g., automated border control kiosks).
- A growing demand to integrate multi-modal screening technologies in order to reduce wait time at checkpoints, and increase the cost performance of new systems.
