Market Report Description
The North America Backscatter X-ray Devices Market would witness market growth of 3.9% CAGR during the forecast period (2021-2027).
The Compton effect causes scattered radiation, which is employed in X-ray backscatter technology (XBT). Backscatter imaging entails lighting an object with a known-direction pencil beam and collecting all back-scattered radiation with wide-area detectors. In addition, the advantage of XBT is that it allows inspecting an object from one side. As a result, it's a good idea to use it in places with few access points or when the interior of the item is complicated in terms of overlaying details.
Due to special and proprietary benefits, as well as the presence of a concentrated market, the cost of a handheld backscatter X-ray instrument is much higher. Furthermore, when scanning larger areas with the gadget, the power intake is readily impeded. Because of the high availability of 5W and 10W power sources, this is possible. The equipment becomes hot. As a result, a larger energy input in the same or smaller dimensions is required. Furthermore, the product's ergonomic design is still not standardized. The product's existing dimensions and weight make it impossible for personnel to carry it for an extended period of time.
According to the US Customs and Border Protection, the agency's overall enforcement actions in the fiscal year 2019 were 1,148,024. Narcotic narcotics worth USD 93.3 million were seized from the borders in FY 2020, up from USD 68.879 million the previous year. In addition, 70,000 car passengers go northbound from Mexico into the United States practically every day at San Ysidro, one of the busiest land border crossings in the Western Hemisphere. A normal border officer has less than 20 seconds to inspect a car and decide whether to let it pass or send it through secondary screening.
The majority of fentanyl, heroin and methamphetamine are also smuggled through the Southwest border into the United States, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). At land borders, however, only around 2% of all individual passenger vehicles and 16% of business vehicles are scanned. Because the bulk of manufacturers, such as Rapiscan and Viken Detection, are based in this region, it has the largest market share. These businesses have created their own proprietary methods for creating a handheld backscatter X-ray device.
The US market dominated the North America Backscatter X-ray Devices Market by Country 2020, and would continue to be a dominant market till 2027; thereby, achieving a market value of $45,650.2 Thousands by 2027. The Canada market is experiencing a CAGR of 6.3% during (2021 - 2027). Additionally, The Mexico market would witness a CAGR of 5.4% during (2021 - 2027).
