Dépèche transmise le 17 août 2009 par Business Wire

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/9b2522/airport_passenger) has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's new report "Airport Passenger Screening Market Assessment EU-Accession States" to their offering.

Market Overview

Surging Passenger Traffic and Tighter Security Regulations Create Lucrative Growth Opportunities in Airport Passenger Screening Security Market in EU Accession States

The airport passenger market in EU accession states has been steadily expanding since the entry of new states into the European Union (EU) in 2004. Frost & Sullivan expects the market to experience steady growth from 2008 to 2016, stimulated by increased spending on enhanced and upgraded screening systems by airport authorities and operators. Rising air passenger throughput in the airports of EU-accession states, coupled with stringent airport security regulations, will have a positive impact on market prospects. "Economies in the EU accession states are developing at a rapid pace, even as passenger traffic in the region has soared due to an increase in the number of leisure and business travellers," notes the analyst of this research. "As EU accession states hasten to comply with European and international airport regulations as well as accelerate the process of passenger security clearance before embarking, spending on passenger screening technologies is set to surge."

Passenger throughput in the EU accession states is projected to double by 2016, reaching 74 million passengers. The increase of approximately 105 per cent of passenger traffic in the region will be driven mainly by the freedom of movement across all countries in the EU and the expansion of airport terminals. Greater numbers of leisure and business travellers across airports in the EU accession states will boost demand for leading edge screening technology solutions to speed up the security clearance process of passengers. "The upgrade and extension of airport terminals in countries such as Poland, Romania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Bulgaria is set to expand passenger traffic in the next 7 years to more that 90 per cent its current passenger capacity," explains the analyst of this research. "New screening technology will be required to speed up the process of security clearance and comply with European regulations in terms of airport security."

Strategic Alliances Critical to Effecting Successful Market Entry

The economic downturn will influence the growth rates of passenger traffic, affecting, in turn, investments in airport-screening technology. "Companies should add capabilities to their existing product line and ally with local companies in the region," advises the analyst. "While entering new markets, performing an analysis of the distribution chain and partnering with regional participants and system integrators in that region will be critical to success."

Most airport operators have already established business relations with screening technology companies. Airport authorities and private operators will be keen on acquiring integrated solutions from a single source. "Companies should focus on creating strategic partnerships; Tier 1 companies are already consolidated in the market but Tier 2 and Tier 3 companies can outsource many of their products to companies that already operate and have a better understanding of the market's dynamics," concludes the analyst. "In this highly fragmented market, partnerships and alliances are essential for market entry."
