Explosives Trace Detection Technologies & Market Will Increase at a 2015-2022 CAGR of 6% Says a New Research Report from Homeland Security Research Corp.

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - November 27, 2016) - The past 3 years have seen explosive-based terror account for 56% of over 36,000 worldwide terror attacks. The widespread use of improvised explosives drive security agencies and private sector critical infrastructure security managers to increase their spending on explosives trace detection (ETD) devices. According to the report it will create a solid 2016-2022 CAGR of 6%.

The 2015-2016 ISIS-inspired and other terror groups bombings and attacks across Europe, the Middle East and Africa will drive governments to rise funding for overhauling their counter terror explosives screening checkpoints.

According to Homeland Security Research Corp. (HSRC) new report, Explosives Trace Detection Technologies & Global Market - 2017 - 2022, the explosives trace detection technologies & global market will grow at a 2015-2022 CAGR of 6%. An increased demand for explosive trace detection technologies and weapons detection products had already commenced after the November 2015 carnage in Paris. The growing number of vehicle-borne explosive and other IED attacks across the Middle East and Africa in 2014-2016 have emphasized the growing need of security decision-makers to increase their capabilities in the explosive screening sphere.

A major on-going challenge is the detection of homemade improvised explosives like TATP (used by the Paris and Brussels bombers) HMTD. TATP & HMTD are attractive as a terror weapon because they are relatively easy to prepare and, until recently, could not be detected by standard explosives screening methods. TATP and HMTD precursors can be easily found in hardware stores or beauty salons (e.g., nail polish removers). Furthermore, improvised explosives like hydrogen peroxide, acetone, and mineral acid can be purchased in large quantities.

The market is set to undergo a transformation from 2016-2022 through the following drivers:

  • Improvised explosive devices (IEDs) are the terrorists weapon of choice
  • The ISIS-inspired complex and well-planned Paris and Brussels carnage (162 killed and 668 injured) sent shockwaves across the continent. These attacks shook the European governments and their security agencies unlike any other terror attacks since 9/11.
  • Middle East and Africa terror and the war in Syria Iraq and Yemen
  • With no "magic bullet" technology in sight, the challenge that remains unresolved is to find ways to stop terrorists from detonating explosives in crowded, unscreened public areas.
  • The election of Donald Trump as U.S president who has promised, throughout his campaign, a tough fight against Islamist extremism terror at home and abroad as well as investing in law and order (e.g. "I am the law-and-order candidate"), will boost U.S. federal Explosives Trace Detection related budgets
  • During the past 3 years, explosive-based terror accounted for 56% of over 36,000 worldwide terror attacks
  • The projected 2017-2022 Air Passengers and Cargo CAGR of 5%
  • Growth of the Asia-Pacific airport industry markets
  • The need to replace or upgrade thousands of outdated ETD devices with state-of-the-art systems
