The global passenger security equipment market is expected to witness a steady growth owing to increase in the terror attacks on public transport infrastructures in the coming years. For instance, the terrorists attacked Maalbeek metro station in central Brussels, which resulted into death of thirty-two civilians and injury of more than three hundred civilians in March, 2016. Such incidents are on increase; and therefore, the passenger security equipment is installed by various transport authorities across the globe. These systems are helpful to monitor and scan passengers and their luggage. Furthermore, rise in demand of biometrics technologies for identity verification by governments fuels the market growth.
Moreover, the regional governments make huge investment to install the latest and updated passenger security equipment. The rise in investment is marked due to illegal and unethical activities at the airports, bus stands, train stations, and seaports apart from the security threats. For instance, owing to growth in terrorist activities in the region, the Canadian government passed a bill to provide security awareness in June 2017. The government would provide training for all rail workers, implement security plans to address potential risks of the train stations and trains, and provide security plan training for the employees.
