U.S. Airport Screening Technologies Market
Within the United States, airport screening technologies fall under the auspices of the Transportation
Security Agency (TSA). This research will review spending forecast for airport screening technologies
according to TSA requests published in the Department of Homeland Security fiscal year 2012 budget
proposal. In addition, competitive and market share analysis within this research is based on
government contract obligations distributed in 2011 as that was the last entire year publicly reported.
Finally, the writer will offer some present and future challenges that affect government funding and
market participant opportunity.
The total obligated funds distributed in 2011 towards U.S. airport screening technologies
amounted to an estimated $xxx.x million.
Funding of U.S. airport screening systems will progressively decline until FY 2015 as the
Transportation Security Administration (TSA) completes its allocation of systems to the nation’s
airports. However, 2016 should see increased funding as aging systems need to be replaced and
improved technology will outweigh the cost of significant upgrades.
Services will dominate the U.S. screening technologies market for the next few years as upgrade,
training, and maintenance requirements are necessary to extend the endurance performance of
systems already in place.
Explosives Detection Systems (EDS) is the key technology utilized for airport screening
processes. Future requirements call for systems that are smaller, versatile (equipment that can
stand alone or in-line configurations) and can enhance throughput speed.
