An X-ray security screening system is a device that detects objects on the desired body or inside a luggage without making any physical contact. Integrating advanced threat detection technologies with flexible and intelligent system designs, X-ray security screening systems enable effective threat recognition. Thus, these devices increasingly find applications across airports, seaports, aircrafts, ships, public gatherings, state boundaries, and commercial infrastructure to counter threats like terrorism and illegal trafficking. The combination of terrorist attack threats, the shortcomings of current technologies, and governments’ willingness to invest on security infrastructure development bodes well for the market growth.
