In the latest Cargo Screening Market Report, from Homeland Security Research Corp (HSRC), one of the most sensitive and least covered areas of aviation security is analyzed: technology and procedural loopholes are pointed out and solutions offered with today's and tomorrow's technologies.
The report analyzes the industry's drivers and inhibitors, demand and supply, installed base, and sales figures. It presents a detailed product/technology and pricing outlook, examines personnel considerations, infrastructure, analyzes cost-performance, cost of transaction and maintenance, and forecasts business and technology opportunities.
Capacity On Hold
Currently, less than 1% of shipped cargo is screened worldwide, and even that little for only a few of the identified threats (explosives, weapons, biological, chemical and radiological/nuclear). Terrorism threats to disrupt western economies and regulatory changes driven by the U.S., specifying requirements for cargo shipped into the U.S., are expected to bring dramatic changes in this industry

Sample Report Findings
- The 10 companies currently active in the field of cargo inspection will have to redesign their systems to meet the post 9/11 threats of weapons of mass destruction (WMD).
- Just the airline sector handles more than 60 billion tons of cargo per year, growing 9% per year.
- Total cost of added security for airline cargo alone is forecasted to surpass $2 billion in 2006.
- Present airline insurance costs are $6 billion/year, six times higher than their pre 9/11 levels. A single cargo terror event will drive these costs even higher (source: IATA)
