The explosives detection and weapon detection market will grow at a CAGR of 20.2% in 2015-2020, a 5-fold hike from the 3.9% CAGR during 2000-2015. Europe is facing a surge of ISIS-inspired explosives and weapon borne terror attacks and threats representing challenges with a far greater reach than their economic ones. This issue impacts airport security, stadium security, public transportation security and other safety measures in populated areas. This alarming situation shows no signs of declining.
Europeans are experiencing a new disturbing reality in which explosives and weapon borne terror is their "new normal". An increase in orders for weapon and explosives detection products had already commenced after the November 2015 Paris carnage (e.g., France manufacturers of weapon detectors reported a 300% sales hike after the Paris carnage).
Based on 6 months of the "Europe’s Terror & Migration Crisis Series" research, and over 110 face-to-face interviews and analyses, we forecast that the 2015-2020 market will grow at a CAGR of 20.2%, a 5-fold hike from the 3.9% CAGR during 2000-2015. Such a growth rate has not been seen in the European market since the 2002-2008 years, following 9/11.
The "European Explosives & Weapons Detection Technologies Market Forecast – 2017-2022" report + the bonus - "Global Homeland Security & Public Safety Industry – 2016 Edition" report are the only comprehensive reviews of the market available today. The objective of this study is to provide a detailed, time-sensitive and reasoned intelligence report.
The explosives detection market will undergo a major transformation from 2016-2022 through the following drivers:
- The ISIS-inspired complex and well-planned Paris and Brussels carnage (162 killed and 668 injured) sent shockwaves across the continent.
- The jihadists used both military grade weapons as well as hard-to-detect homemade improvised explosives (i.e. TATP) which pose a threat to existing weapon detection measures
- The attacks shook the European governments and their security agencies unlike any other terror attacks since 9/11, paving the way to new strategies regarding explosives detection capabilities and needs
- The west European security forces are ill-equipped in terms of weapon detection and explosives detection to encounter 21st century ISIS-inspired and trained terrorists who use hard-to-detect improvised explosives, cutting-edge encrypted communication, make a remarkable use of social networks to recruit and train jihadists and conduct efficient pre-attack intelligence.
- European security bodies will have to replace or upgrade their explosive screening systems to new systems capable of detecting improvised explosives like those used in Paris and Brussels (e.g., TATP).
- With no "Magic Bullet" technology in sight, the challenge that remains unresolved is to find out how to stop terrorists from detonating explosives in crowded, unscreened public areas.
- The terrorists were trained by ISIS ex-Iraqi military officers on planning and conducting modern day guerrilla warfare. Europol estimates that up to 5,000 European jihadists have returned to the EU after obtaining combat experience on the battlefields of the Middle East.
- The EU and most of the rest of the European market for homeland security and public safety products are served by local companies. Even with a preference for locally manufactured products, foreign products can usually strongly compete on the basis of cost-performance. They do not encounter any EU direct trade barriers or quotas. Non-tariff, indirect trade barriers may be the approval process of dual use goods, which include many security market products.
