Increase in passenger volumes serves as an enabler for adoption of new technology solutions that offer time savings. Technological developments and evolution of smart security solutions are estimated to drive global airport security market size, according to the report. Rise in criminal and terrorist activity have propelled the need for security reforms and amendment of security laws.

Growth of airport infrastructure and a shift toward technological security solutions as an alternative to human labor intensive security practices is expected to drive airport security systems market trends over the coming years.

Effectiveness of existing equipment in combating threats and lack of a tangible return on investment has discouraged operators from purchasing new solutions. Labor costs consume a significant portion of the security budget, taking away potential investments in new technology.

The airport security surveillance market accounted for more than 9% of the global revenue in 2015, and the segment is expected to witness growth in the coming years. It primarily includes products such as IP and analog video surveillance, radar surveillance, among others.

Although analog cameras are more popular and widely deployed, IP cameras have quickly gained popularity and are expected to replace analog systems in the coming years. Video analytics play a vital role in threat detection and software analytics companies are expected to offer innovative solutions for airports.

Biometric access control devices are expected to gain significant airport security market share over the next few years. Card readers and keypads are some of the primary solutions deployed worldwide.
