Global air cargo security and screening systems market is estimated to be valued at US$ xx billion in 2021 and is projected to reach a market value of US$ xx billion by 2031. The market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period from 2021 to 2031. The market growth for air cargo security and screening systems can be attributed to ever increasing demand for air cargo transport and international trade. The market growth is also driven by factors such as illegal activities such as smuggling, and drug trafficking among others, resulting in the demand for efficient security and scanning systems from airports across the globe. Air transport has become cheaper in the recent past due to lower oil prices and the development of energy-efficient aircraft resulting in major logistic companies preferring air transport for freight transport across the globe. In addition, a growing preference for faster deliveries and international fashion brands has influenced the demand for air cargo security and screening systems positively. Moreover, airports have been investing significantly in smart technologies such as baggage handling systems, self check-in kiosks, auto-screening systems, explosive detectors, and narcotic detectors among others.

COVID-19 Impact on Air Cargo Security and Screening Systems Market
Due to Covid-19, the international trade has dropped significantly during 2020 and is expected to recover slowly over the next two to three years. As the international trade and commerce business sector is witnessing sluggish growth, the demand for air cargo security and screening systems is expected to slow down during the first half of the forecast period till 2022. Due to ongoing pandemic, air passenger traffic has reduced drastically and is one of the major factors expected to hamper the market growth in short term. Covid-19 has impacted global economies significantly in 2020 and is likely to affect the capital expenditures of many emerging economies across the globe. For instance, India is one of the fastest growing markets for air cargo security and screening systems on account of several planned airport infrastructure projects. However, it is expected that country will witness negative growth in their GDP, which will in turn affect the investment on airport infrastructure projects in coming years.
