A full-body scanner is a screening device used to detect concealed objects (metallic as well as non-metallic objects) on a person without the physical removal of clothing or physical contact. Full-body scanners are divided into x-ray scanners and millimeter wave scanners and are widely used in the critical infrastructure and transport sectors for security purposes.
The report on the full-body scanners market provides a detailed trend analysis from 2020 to 2025. It discusses industry and technology trends currently prevailing in the market, along with drivers, restraints, challenges, and opportunities that influence the growth of the market.
The global full-body scanners market is projected to grow from USD 276 million in 2020 to USD 485 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 11.9% from 2020 to 2025. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growth in passenger footfall at airports and high spending on prison security. The growing demand for increasing security measures at airports & prisons is increasing the demand for full-body scanners.

Based on end-use sector, the transport segment of the full-body scanners market is projected to grow at the highest rate from 2020 to 2025. This segment is further segmented into airports, seaports, and railway & metro stations. Transportation has been severely impacted by restrictions implemented by various countries due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Passenger footfall has decreased in Q1 2020 and is expected to recover by Q2 2021; thus, the transport segment shows a higher CAGR compared to critical infrastructure.
Based on technology, the millimeter segment of the full-body scanners market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2020 to 2025. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the high adoption of millimeter wave scanners at airports and other transportation hubs. Also, growing privacy concerns regarding x-ray scanners installed at airports have resulted in the replacement of these scanners with millimeter wave scanners. X-ray scanners are expected to witness high adoption in critical infrastructure such as prisons and homeland security facilities.
Based on the output, the 3D segment of the full-body scanners market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Full-body scanners are now leveraging emerging technologies such as AI and deep learning to better process images. This has helped develop complex algorithms that can help generate 3D images. Improvements in hardware have also led the 3D segment to grow. The dual view segment is expected to have the largest share as most full-body scanners generate two images: head-to-toe and torso, to precisely scan body organs and body cavities for contraband.
Based on detection, the automatic segment of the full-body scanners market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this segment can be attributed to major companies focusing on embedding automatic threat detection software in scanners. Automatic scanners eliminate the need for an operator which also saves money and makes the detection process free from human error. Automatic scanners also address privacy concerns as the images generated are not viewed by an operator.
Based on region, Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest market CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed due to the high investment in airports and prison improvements. China and India are heavily investing in greenfield airport construction. In January 2020, the Indian government decided to equip 84 airports with full-body scanners. This has led the Indian market to grow at a higher rate.
North America accounts for the largest share of the full-body scanners market since the US has the most number of airports and prisons compared to any other country. The US is also installing full-body scanners in metro stations to screen a large number of passengers at once. North America has the highest number of leading manufacturers, such as Leidos Security Detection & Automation (US), Rapiscan Systems (US), and ADANI (US), among others.
