Explosives and Narcotics Trace Detection (ETD) is a key modality within the homeland security, public safety and defense infrastructure. ETD devices are used at law enforcement facilities, critical infrastructure facilities, prisons court houses and other government and private sector secured facilities.

According to the report, the Global Secured Facilities related ETD market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 12.8% during 2014-2020 . This growth is driven by the following factors:
  • Globally, there are over 400,000 people screening lanes .More than 95% of the lanes don’t have an ETD
  • Following the January 2015 ISIS terror attacks in Europe, we’re witnesses of a growing demand (CAGR of 16%) for ETD systems in Europe in such areas as secured facilities, first responders and public venues security (public gathering locations, sports arenas etc.)
  • Growing aftersale revenues (e.g., maintenance, consumables) from more than 25.000 ETD devices in use worldwide
  • China’s massive investments in internal security and war on drugs
  • The threats posed by ISIS and other terrorists, the Middle East
  • Latin America sporting events and war on drugs
  • The Indian government counter-terror investments

Homeland Security Research Corporation analysts forecast that the cumulative 2015-2020 Secured Facilities related ETD market (including systems sales, service, consumables and upgrades) will grow at a 12.8% CAGR.
