New Transportation market report from TechNavio: "Transportation Safety and Transportation Security Market in Americas 2015-2019"

[ClickPress, Wed Sep 09 2015] Adequate safety and security measures remain a prerequisite for any transport system. The transportation safety and security systems are an integral part of aviation, cargo supply chain, maritime, and other popular passenger transport systems related to roadways and railroads. The inputs provided by these systems are used in law enforcement, border security, and intelligence services in a multi-jurisdictional platform. With the increasing traffic of goods in transit, it has become imperative for concerned agencies to ramp up security measures in sensitive infrastructures.

Terrorists are developing innovative weapons of mass destruction, such as CBRN, to cause damage to the transportation industry. This has led to major technological companies in the domain come up with upcoming and advanced solutions. Systems that are already integrated include access control systems, video surveillance systems, secure communication systems, scanning and screening systems, and navigation and traffic control systems.

Technavio analysts forecast the transportation safety and transportation security market in Americas to grow at a CAGR of 7.98% in terms of revenue during 2014-2019.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio's team said: "CBRN defense systems are weapons of mass destruction and are extensively used by terrorists to strike crowded transportation systems. These are different from the common modes of attack because they are highly undetectable and portable, and can cause unparalleled damage. Radiation portal monitors are used to screen individuals, vehicles, and cargo at checkpoints to detect the traces of radiation material. Air filtration systems keep the air free from any biological organisms."

According to the report, attacks by miscreants on public transport systems are at an all-time high. Therefore, the protection of life and capital goods is of paramount importance. Ensuring passenger safety and secure cargo transit is a top priority for carriers across seaways, airways, railways, and roadways. As a result, concerned authorities have ramped up security measures. GPS, vehicle tracking, and navigation systems are used to ensure that vessels, vehicles, and aircraft are in touch with the control center, and their exact co-ordinates and position are known. Natural calamities or unseen incidents may cause serious risk to the wellbeing of life and goods. This also drives the popularity of fire detection and control systems.

Further, the report states that the vendors in this market are facing the challenge of developing contingency plans to counter unforeseen technologies used to breach existing systems.

The key players in the Transportation Safety and Transportation Security Market in the Americas are Alstom, Honeywell International, Orbcomm, Rockwell Collins, Siemens, Smiths Detection and Thales while other prominent vendors include Anixter, Avigilon, Harris, HID Global, KAPSCH, L-3 Communications, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Nuctech, Rapiscan Systems, Raytheon, Saab, Safran Group, Smiths Group, Southwest Microwave and United Technologies

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
