The Global Airport Full Body Scanners Market Size collected USD 95.3 Billion in 2022 and is set to achieve a market size of USD 252.9 Billion in 2032 growing at a CAGR of 10.4% from 2023 to 2032.
Airport Full Body Scanners Market Report Statistics
An airport full body scanner is generally used to detect critical threats to national security and aviation. The full body scanners let a security official check any hidden objects on a person’s clothes or body. Full body scanners stand as the next step in airport security overcoming metal detecting scanners. Full body scanners are critically effective equipment in the security screening sector. Full body scanners are electronic devices that help in detecting suspicious objects during security checks. These types of scanners are particularly used in areas that require high strategic importance and high-security vigilance including defense headquarters, VVIP residences, and airports among others. Full body scanners help the invigilators or operators to spot images of the person’s body with alternate wavelengths and aid in the detection of suspicious objects hidden under the prosthetics or attire. In comparison to metal detectors, full body scanners are capable of detecting non-metal objects like surgically implanted bombs and non-metallic bombing equipment.

Airport Full Body Scanners Market Growth Factors
An increase in terrorist activities and rising threats to key economies have propelled the governing bodies to employ aviation threat controls. For instance, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) augmented the surveillance scanning mechanisms across the country’s exit and entry points. Installation of full body scanners at airports facilitates in reducing fraudulent activities such as narcotics, smuggling of diamonds, weapons, and other illegal/expensive items. The impact of terrorist activities has been efficiently reduced owing to the use of security screening systems and full body scanners as the major systems. Moreover, rising awareness of airport security and upcoming airport constructions across developing countries have added to the adoption of airport full-body scanners.
However, issues related to the privacy of certain passengers such as images of their bare bodies displayed to screening agents are a key reason which has widely affected the global airport full body scanners market. Although, in order to overcome the aforementioned privacy issues, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Modernization and Reform Act, 2012 have regularized the use of automated target recognition software that alternates the naked body with a cartoon-like figure, which in turn is incurring additional expenditures, thus restraining the growth of the global market. In addition, increasing concerns for security as well as rising border crimes are some key aspects fueling the demand for efficient security and safety mechanisms at airports. Full body scanners at commercial airports are able to detect several serious threats in the shortest turnaround time to avoid unwanted mishaps during travel. The implementation of full-body scanners is expected to attract huge investments across the globe. Furthermore, these systems are anticipated to play a crucial role in recognizing terrorism and drug trafficking.
Rising preference for air travel is in turn driving the demand for enhanced airport security which is another key factor projected to drive the global airport full body scanners market. Also, the increasing need for time-efficient security systems coupled with an increasing number of airports with advanced and latest technologies is further anticipated to propel the growth of the overall market. However, high initial investments may restrain the growth of the global airport full body scanners market.
Airport Full Body Scanners Market Segmentation
The worldwide airport full body scanners market is categorized based on scanning technology, airport type, and geography.
Airport Full Body Scanners Market By Scanning Technology
According to the forecast for the airport full body scanners market, millimetre wave scanners will hold a significant market share from 2023 to 2032. This is because millimetre wave scanners are thought to be safer and more user-friendly than backscatter X-ray scanners, which use ionizing radiation to produce images of the human body. Millimeter wave scanners generate images of the body using non-ionizing electromagnetic waves, making them safer and more widely accepted. Backscatter X-ray scanners, on the other hand, accounted for a lower percentage of the market share in 2022, but still held a substantial share of the market. Backscatter X-ray scanners are more commonly used in less stringent regulatory environments or for specific applications such as cargo screening.
Airport Full Body Scanners Market By Airport Type
According to an airport full body scanners industry analysis, commercial airports captured the greatest market share in 2022 and are expected to continue to do so in the years ahead, from 2023 to 2032. Commercial airports serve scheduled passenger flights from both domestic and international airlines. Because these airports handle a high volume of passengers and cargo, they have a larger market share in the airport full body scanner market. Cargo service airports, also known as air freight terminals, handle cargo shipments exclusively. Because these airports are equipped to handle large volumes of cargo, they may have a smaller market share in the airport full body scanner market than commercial airports.
However, the demand for cargo security screening is growing, which is driving the adoption of full body scanners at cargo service airports. Reliever airports are smaller airports that supplement commercial airports. These airports are intended to alleviate congestion at larger airports while also serving general aviation traffic. When compared to commercial airports, reliever airports typically have a lesser share of the market in the airport full body scanner market. Airports that primarily serve private and business aircraft are known as general aviation airports. These airports typically have a lesser share of the market in the airport full body scanner market than commercial airports, but demand for security screening remains high.
