The scope of this report covers the explosive detectors market segmented on the basis of technology, product types, verticals, and geography. The IMS-based trace explosive detectors market is expected to hold the largest market share between 2015 and 2020. The market for mass spectrometry-based trace detectors is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period, as it can overcome most of the limitations of IMS explosive detectors in terms of quantitative capability and selectivity. The market for X-ray systems is expected to hold the largest market share and dominate the bulk market between 2015 and 2020. X-ray systems are especially used at airports where security is a major concern. X-ray systems are in demand in the market as they can detect explosives, weapons, and contraband carried by passengers on their person and/or in their baggage.

The explosive detectors are being increasingly used in various verticals, such as military and defense, cargo & transport, aviation, public places, commercial, and others which have led to the growth of the market across the globe. The commercial sector is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2015 and 2020 in the explosive detectors market. The market is also expected to witness growth in the public places and aviation verticals during the forecast period.

Explosive Detectors Market

North America is expected to hold the largest market share and dominate the explosive detectors market between 2015 and 2020 owing to the presence of large number of security vendors. Europe also offers potential growth opportunities, given the in recent terrorist attacks and the presence of critical infrastructure in the region.

However, the increasing cyber threats and decreasing government spending in explosive detectors restrains the growth of the explosive detectors market. With the emergence of new cyber threats, the defense budgets of governments worldwide are getting hampered, and thus the government spending on explosive detectors is decreasing. This high spending toward cyber threats limits the funds for research and development of better explosive detectors, as the same funds are diverted toward the protection of information. The key players in the market include Smiths Detection, Morpho Detection, L-3 Communication, OSI Systems, and Nuctech among others. These players have adopted various strategies such as partnerships, agreements, contracts, mergers and acquisitions, and new product developments to achieve growth in the global explosive detectors market.
