Airports have to deal with vivid threats such as cybercrime, vandalism, fraud and others. The most critical threat to the airport is terrorist attack. From the airport operator perspective, all the threats have been given an equal importance. The airport security is the way to keep the passengers and other assets safe and secure.
Globally, the aircraft security has been witnessing high growth, which has been primarily attributed to the attack of 9/11. Many countries are investing in enhancing the security of the existing airports. In addition, the security is given an utmost importance while building the new airports. In employing new technology, efficiency, cost and its functionality will play a vital role. Technology with wide implementation will gain an access in airport security.
Growth in the passenger traffic is fueling the airport security market. With people preferring to travel via air, government across different countries are investing in new airports across multiple locations.
Connectivity and technology is also triggering the demand for airport security market.
Implementation of several technologies can delay passenger’s time from security check to the flight. Thus service will act as one of the major challenge which can hinder the growth of airport security market.
