Explosive Trace Detection Market Insights

Explosive Trace Detection Market Insights

The global explosive trace detection (ETD) market was worth USD 1.2 billion in 2022 and is predicted to reach 3.5 billion in 2032 at a 11.3% CAGR during the forecast period.

Explosive Trace Detection (ETD) refers to the technology and equipment used to detect the presence of trace amounts of explosives on people, luggage, and other objects. ETD systems are used in a variety of settings, including airports, border crossings, military bases, and other high-security areas. 

Market Driver

The Explosive Trace Detection Market is driven by the never-ending threat of terrorism and the need to secure critical infrastructure and public events. ETD systems are used to screen people and objects for the presence of explosives and help to prevent the smuggling of explosives into secure areas. In addition to the traditional market for ETD systems, there is also a growing market for next-generation ETD systems that use advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. These systems are designed to improve the accuracy and speed of explosive trace detection and are expected to be increasingly adopted in the coming years. Some of the factors hampering the growth of this industry are the lack of personnel to operate these devices, high cost to buy this equipment and the device’s limited availability.
