The Global Contraband Detector Market size is expected to reach $6.6 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 7.5% CAGR during the forecast period. Contrabands refer to the illegal items like nuclear materials, weapons, and explosives. A contraband detector is a gadget, which helps in detecting hidden illegal items like drugs, weapons, and explosives. There are two kinds of contraband detectors available in the market fixed and portable.

These types of detectors are majorly utilized in government and military areas to ensure the security & safety of the borders and at airports & metro stations to check the entire luggage and safeguard the areas that are prone to contraband materials. Whenever any contraband detector comes in contact with illegal materials, it produces a sound to alert the guards for further investigation of the luggage. Contraband detectors determine the mass density of the object during the inspection process and show the variation among the densities of any kind of illegal contraband materials and the items in which the unauthorized materials are hidden. In addition, contraband detectors are utilized at various places like transportation, government facilities, and homeland security.

The growing demand for security X-ray machines that help in detecting the metallic and non-metallic objects hidden in clothes or cavities with very little dose penetrating radiation is fueling the growth of the contraband detector market. The demand for X-ray imaging technology is high due to the rising adoption of new security measures, which would surge the demand for contraband detectors in the market.

COVID-19 Impact

The global COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every domain of society. The imposition of various restrictions across the globe like nationwide lockdown travel ban across nations, and the temporary shutdown of the manufacturing unit have impacted almost every sector of the business domain and the contraband detector market is one of them. Governments of many major nations have imposed lockdowns to curb the spread of coronavirus.

Due to this travel ban, the need for contraband at various places like metro stations, airports has decreased, and thus, the growth of the contraband detector would witness a slowdown. In addition, the absence of labors in the manufacturing sector is estimated to hamper the production of contrabands. However, at the recovering stage, the growth of contraband will get back on track with a significant growth rate.

Technology Outlook

Based on Technology, the market is segmented into X-ray Imaging, Metal Detection, Spectroscopy/Spectrometry, and Others. There is a broad variety of hidden materials like metallic & non-metallic threat objects, detected by utilizing x-ray screening systems. There are huge investments made in the development of X-ray scanning systems to detect possible threats by people & their luggage. Moreover, several improvements in x-ray systems including Computed Tomography and backscatter are among the major factors surging the market growth, which has further bolster the market for x-ray technology.
