The global contraband detector market size is expected to grow from USD 3.9 billion in 2021 to USD 5.6 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 7.5%. The market has a promising growth potential due to several factors, including growing adoption of x-ray screening technology in the transportation industry and rising adoption of contraband detectors in retail applications during rising security concerns in public places such as shops, malls and others.
The major factor restraining the growth of the contraband detector market is the huge initial investment and higher operational and maintenance costs associated with security systems.Contraband detector systems are widely used to ensure security and safety at transit facilities, public places, hospitals, government organizations, banks, commercial buildings, educational institutions, critical infrastructure, etc, however, they have a high cost of ownership.

Many of the aforementioned places require costly explosive detectors for which the operational cost is equally high.For instance, full-body X-ray scanners require a huge initial investment.

Also, the maintenance cost of several explosive detectors is comparatively high. All these factors may result in a reluctance to deploy security measures at facilities This is expected to impact the contraband detector market negatively in the coming years.
The market declined in 2020, mainly due to the impact of COVID-19.The supply chains were disrupted in 2020 due to the lockdown imposed by various governments and labor shortages in these industries due to travel restrictions, which would affect the contraband detector market.

Though the market has been impacted in 2020, it is expected to fully recover by 2021.

Metal Detection: The fastest-growing segment of the contraband detector market, by technology type
Metal detection technology is the fastest-growing segment of the contraband detector market by technology type.There have been several technological advancements in metal detection systems owing to COVID-19.

Many players have started offering metal detectors integrated with temperature sensing technology or thermal imaging which is driving the market for metal detection.Furthermore, exposure to high levels of X-rays can increase the risk of cancer and cardiovascular diseases hence x-ray technology is being replaced by metal detection technology by many organizations.

This is expected to drive the market for metal detection technology during the forecast period.

Transportation: The largest segment of the contraband detector market, by application
The contraband detector market for the transportation application is expected to hold the largest market share from 2021 to 2026.The transportation sector includes transit locations such as airports, seaports, rail stations, bus stations, etc.

It has been observed that a large number of passengers pass through these transit locations, and to maintain security at these sites, varieties of contraband detector systems, such as metal detectors and X-ray scanners are used.Passengers are required to move ahead through checkpoint areas safely, securely, and quickly, without creating any chaos.

Thus, there has been huge investments for the deployment of security measures in the transportation sector due to rising passenger traffic. These security measures are expected to drive the market for transportation application during the forecast period.

North America has the largest market share in the contraband detector market
The North American region is expected to dominate the contraband detector market and is projected to have the largest market share during the forecast period.Also, the region has countries like US, Canada and Mexico where several major players in contraband detector market dwell.

The US is likely to continue to lead the North American contraband detector market as it has several busiest airports and is witnessing the rising adoption of contraband detectors.Furthermore, increasing investments of TSA to procure & install security screening equipment at airports is expected to drive market.

Also.Technological advancements and mandates for screening people & baggage at transportation facilities are projected to boost market growth.

These factors are expected to propel the contraband detector market in North American regions.
