For scanning people at the airports, the trend is to replace walk-through x-ray scanners with active millimeter wave (MMW) full-body scanners. These can detect non-metal threat items and is not harmful for the human body. The millimeter wave scanners do not reveal the type of naked body images produced by backscatter x-ray scanners that have prompted public outrage. Instead, the operator sees a stick figure with any detected anomalies highlighted by yellow boxes. Security personnel can then limit their pat-down to those areas of the body highlighted by the scan, avoiding the full-body pat-downs, which both, passengers and security personnel have found awkward and at times, even offensive.
“The North American region to show the highest CAGR during the forecast period”
The North American region is expected to exhibit the highest growth rate in the AFBS market during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021 due to a recent mandate by the TSA to install these scanners at each international airport in the U.S. This growth can be attributed majorly because this region has maximum number of international airports in which full body scanners are installed and therefore, the need for security is very crucial, which has led to the rise in demand for airport full body scanner.
