PALM BEACH, Fla., Feb. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- In recent weeks, months and years, we have seen the focus on upgrading security against all sorts of weapon, in public places and airports. Rising threats of terrorism targeted at public places for mass attacks have created an urgent need for modern, advanced concealed weapon detectors. Security screening combined with concealed weapon detection solutions are used to detect sly threats and contraband items without any physical interaction between security personnel and the person being screened. Efficient security screening and weapon detection at high public throughput venues like courthouses, airports, museums, and prisons demands use of high efficiency sensing technologies. This demand for efficient concealed weapon detection is motivating companies to develop and integrate high speed sensors into security screening solutions. A report from Future market Insights projected that The global concealed weapon detection systems market was estimated to record a value worth more than US$180 million by the end of 2020, and is estimated to cross the US$ 300 Mn mark by 2030. In addition, they added that the Global concealed weapon detection systems market likely to grow at over 6% between that same period, 2020 and 2030. Active stocks in the markets this week include FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR), Plymouth Rock Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: PLRTF) (CSE: PRT), Verint® Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: VRNT), OSIS Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSIS), Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: KTOS).
Airports, railway stations, metro stations, national borders and tourist attractions, among other venues, are susceptible to illegal operations and terrorism, which can be tackled by incorporating autonomous and covert sensing resources. The integration of high quality, autonomous sensing equipment is expected to play a major role in propelling the growth of the global concealed weapon detection systems market during the forecast period. The Future market Insights report said: "Remarkable advancements with incorporation of sensors, imaging technology, and actuators has a created lucrative ground for sales of concealed weapon detection systems."
Plymouth Rock Technologies Inc.
