global explosive detector market accounted for $4,531 million in 2016, and is expected to reach $8,208 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 8.7% from 2017 to 2023. Explosive detectors are non-destructive inspection devices that help its users in detecting explosives and other flammable materials. It is commonly used at airports, seaports, borders of countries, and in important structures such as the government buildings. The detection of explosives at airports, land borders, and seaports is an essential task for preventing terrorism and organized crime. Owing to terrorist use of explosive devices, strong interest has been focused towards the development of techniques and instrumentation to detect explosives. There has been a significant growth in research within this area ‐ through both the development of new, advanced detection methods and the improvement of existing techniques. It is an important aspect of the overall effort to prevent the transport of illicit materials, which also includes small arms, nuclear material, and narcotics.

Increase in terrorist activities across the globe, government regulation for greater and effective security checking, especially at critical establishments such as airport and railway stations majorly drive the factors for the growth of explosive detectors market. Moreover, quick response and user-friendly applications are some other benefits assisting the market. Improvised explosives, and risk of failure of the device in public safety are some of the causes of restraints in the growth of the market. However, strict government regulations for safety measure at sensitive places are expected to boost the market growth
