Airport Security: Sector Overview & Analysis

Airport Security: Sector Overview & Analysis

Market Overview

The booming travel and tourism industry is changing the face of the global economy. In the last few years, the travel industry has contributed significantly to the global GDP. The tourism industry has not only churned out massive revenue from the market; it has also mobilised job markets spread across the globe. Market observers believe that the travel and tourism industry will be a massive revenue earner in the forthcoming years. The overall surge of tourism is facilitated by the growth of other ancillary industries that include aviation and hospitality. In the last few years, the aviation industry has been a soft target of terrorists and a cradle of several illegal activities. As airports are a prime mode of transit for millions of travellers around the world, the importance and significance of airport security is increasing with every passing day. Highly advanced technologies are roped in to beef up airport security measures. Airport security measures should not only focus on passenger safety, but should also keep passenger convenience as a top priority. After the 9/11 attacks, the US and other developed nations have completely covered airports under a massive security blanket. Special acts have been passed and special security measures are enabled to ensure the safety of millions of fliers worldwide. Special full-body scanners and other security equipment backed by skilled security personnel are creating a robust security barricade against any illegal activities.

The increased volume of air traffic and the surge of terror attacks around the world are raising serious questions about airport security measures. Every year airport security successfully unearths and ducks a heap of deadly terror attack plots that are concocted to destroy a particular country's socio-economic balance. This not only saves the lives of millions of citizens but also protects costly properties. Airports have been an important transit passage for millions of travellers worldwide and enhanced airport security measures have made skies more safe and convenient. Airline organisations have also undertaken special measures to counter terrorism. Airport security not only protects people from possible threats of terror but it has also clamped several deadly diseases that are likely to take the shape of an epidemic if left uncontrolled. Several airports have installed special security tools to detect viral ailments. Diseases such as Zika, Swine Flu and Japanese Encephalitis are some of the deadly diseases that can be easily carried along during travel. Airport security of several countries has considered various restrictive measures to stop the spread of these diseases.

Airport Security: Game Changers

A massive wave of change has eroded the airport security scenario since the 9/11 attacks. As the terror attacks surged around the globe airport security also tightened its noose to protect innocent citizens and to nip any terror attack in the bud. Several countries have taken strict measures to create a safe and secure ambience at their airports. Governments and private stakeholders have pumped in millions of dollars to boost airport security. The overall modernisation of airports and mushrooming of new airports across the world is also creating new avenues for the development of airport security. The fast development of the security equipment sector is also spreading the horizon for airport security.

Airport Security: Challenges

Airport security systems find it difficult to completely eradicate acts of terror due to various reasons. Enhanced security measures often create long queues at airports, which increases the discomfort of passengers. The minute scrutiny, full –body scans and other strict security measures often raise questions on the necessity of the procedures implemented. Several activists have protested against these newly adopted airport security measures.

Airport Security: Bigwigs

As the airport security sphere is bustling with activities, several new players are queuing up to make their mark in this area. Some of the largely used airport security equipment tools and systems include Airport Information System (AIS) manufactured by Airport Management Systems, ARINC, ASSA ABLOY Entrance System, APD Communication Limited, Aralia Systems Ltd.
