According to the report, the aviation security market is forecasted to make a robust comeback, generating a 2014-2020 CAGR of 13.1%.

The radical Islamic terror attacks in Europe in early 2015 coupled with the ever-growing threats are forcing European authorities to take drastic steps to enhance airport security. The market will thus undergo a wave of expansion generated from new and maturing sectors and technologies such as Aviation Traffic Control cybersecurity, automated border control kiosks, cargo screening, perimeter security systems and advanced ICT technologies. These will create new market niches and fresh business opportunities.

According to the report the market growth is boosted by the following 9 drivers:

  1. The early 2015 radical Islamic terror attacks in Europe are forcing the European airport security measures and market to undergo a wave of expansion.
  2. The number of European flight routes and airline passengers has increased significantly. In 2014, over 850 million passengers arrived at or departed from more than 450 airports in the EU. It is forecasted to double by 2025.
  3. The EU aviation security sector is highly regulated.
  4. Advancements in security infrastructure and screening technologies.
  5. The moderate growth of the aviation sector in other regions.
  6. The need to streamline airport security processes and reduce passengers’ waiting time.
  7. Replacement and upgrades of outdated security-related systems.
  8. Growing aftersales revenues.
  9. The risks of aviation security-related cyber terror (e.g., air traffic control).
