The analysts forecast the Global Commercial Airport Full Body Scanner market to grow at a CAGR of 6.74 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing threat of terrorist attacks. The Global Commercial Airport Full Body Scanner market has also been witnessing the pilot testing of full body scanning machines in the APAC region. However, Islamic countries' refusal to use body scanners could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The report, the Global Commercial Airport Full Body Scanner Market 2012-2016, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market in the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions; it also covers the Global Commercial Airports Body Scanners market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

In recent years, full-body scanners are increasingly being used in pilot projects in several airports in the APAC region. Many commercial airports in the APAC region are installing full-body scanners and initiating pilot programs to test the feasibility of using these advanced devices. Full-body scanners are currently being used in trial phases in airports such as the Changi International Airport, Beijing International Airport, Delhi International Airport, Narita International Airport, Incheon International Airport, as well as the Sydney and Melbourne International Airports. Combined with other technologies, these devices could be permanently used in the passenger screening procedures at these airports, thereby fostering the growth of the market during the forecast period.

According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the increasing threat of terrorist attacks across the globe. The 9/11 terrorist attack has prompted the TSA to tackle the issue of security with utmost seriousness, and hence it has employed full-body scanners for screening passengers at major airports.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the resistance to the use of body scanners in Islamic countries. Many Islamic nations are against the idea of installing full-body scanner because it violates their religious beliefs.

The report also includes a discussion of the other vendors operating in this market. The other vendors in the market are CST Digital Communication (Pty) Ltd., Braun International Ltd., Tek84 Engineering Group, Morpho SA, and Smiths Detection Inc.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
