The backscatter X-ray devices market was valued at USD 132 million in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 174 million by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2022 to 2027. The key factors driving the growth of the backscatter X-ray devices market include increase in number of terrorist attacks and illegal immigration, increasing deployment of security solutions at public gathering spaces, rise in smuggling of narcotics, and reduction in passenger waiting time.
Technological advancements in X-ray screening systems and development of low-cost products are creating opportunities for the backscatter X-ray devices market. Some of the key companies operating in the backscatter X-ray devices are Rapiscan Systems (US), Nuctech Company Limited (China), Viken Detection (US), LAURUS Systems, Inc. (US), Scanna MSC Ltd.

The United States Transportation Security Administration banned Nuctech hardware from most airports in the country in 2014 after reviewing of the underlying technology used in the X-ray machines installed at the airports. The National Security Council and other government agencies in the US are attempting to influence EU nations such as Germany, Italy, and Greece to ban the usage of baggage screening systems offered by Nuctech. In January 2021, the government of the Republic of Lithuania banned a subsidiary of Nuctech from supplying baggage-scanning equipment at its airports, citing national security reasons. Similarly, Canada rejected a USD 6.8 million deal with Nuctech to install and operate X-ray scanners in the country’s embassies worldwide.
However, on the other hand, in April 2021, the UK government signed security contracts worth USD 16 million with Nuctech to install its scanning equipment in key areas of the UK infrastructure such as borders and prisons.
