Airports to Continue Generating Significant Demand for Automated Border Control Solutions

In 2017, demand for automated border control solutions was highest at airports. In terms of value contribution, airports accounted for over three-fourth of the global market value in the same year. Air traffic has soared over the last few years and with number of air passengers expected to double in the next 20 years, the trend shall continue. With several airport projects in pipeline, especially in the emerging economies, fresh installations of automated border control systems are expected to surge at airports. Demand for automated border control solutions at seaports would be greatly benefitted by the governments push for securing borders at seaports and consequent upgrades to the existing security infrastructure. The following figure represents contribution of different end-use segments to the global automated border control market in 2017.

Europe to Continue Dominance through the Forecast Period

In terms of value contribution, Europe was the largest automated border control market worldwide in 2017. The region accounted for over 40% of the total market value in the same year. The influx of migrants into several EU countries over the last few years has raised security concerns related to unauthorized overstays, crime, and cross-border terrorism.  According to the European Commission, it is forecasted that border crossings in and out of the EU will reach around 887 million by 2025. This is expected to increase digitalization of border security through use of access control and automated border control solutions. North America is also expected to witness strong growth during the forecast period owing to the efforts and investments made by the U.S. government to limit security breaches at all land, air, and sea ports of entry within next five years.

Automated Border Control e-Gates to Continue Dominance; Automated Border Control Kiosks to Witness Maximum Adoption

In 2017, the value contribution from automated border control e-Gates was greater than automated border control kiosks. The trend shall prolong and e-Gates are presumed to continue their dominance throughout the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. The dominance of automated border control e-Gates is largely credited to their ability to process entry of maximum number of passengers without any supervision. With several e-Gates upgraded and replaced, the automated border control e-Gates market will also be benefitted from the replacement demand. On the other hand, automated border control kiosks are expected to register stronger growth during the forecast period. While kiosks do not impede passenger flow, e-Gates may lead to a disrupted flow when the gate is locked. In addition, upfront costs of kiosks are competitive with minimal maintenance and installation charges. The compact size of kiosks ensures space saving, thereby allowing authorities to use it for other administrative/operational purpose. With passenger traffic expected to double at airports and seaports, the demand for both ABC e-Gates and ABC kiosks will continue to remain high throughout the forecast period.
