The European Union's airport security regulations and the pressure after the September 11 terrorist attacks paved the way for an increased level of attention on airport security. Measures were stepped across almost all the countries in Europe due to the rigorous security requirements. In contrast to the North American market, airport security was not totally neglected prior to the terrorist attacks, although it still had a long way to go in order to ensure that the measures taken would make a difference in providing passenger security and increasing the long-term viability of airlines.
Highlights of the briefing will include: macro level Indicators of the European airport security equipment market; industry growth monitor; valuation multiples of key industry participants; sector scorecards for investment professionals and investment themes.
The briefing will provide investment professionals, financial analysts, and airport security equipment companies with an overview of the state of the industry, focusing on high growth segments, investment opportunities, and key trends in the market.
"The European Commission's move to pass legislation in 2005 seeking simplification, harmonisation and clarification of existing rules in order to improve levels of security in the civil aviation industry across the EU refined the earlier measure outlined in the 2002 regulation. This in turn led the European Union to pass legislation aimed at imposing standard security requirements across all member states. The above initiative is likely to increase demand for more advanced security technologies, including biometrics and advanced scanning technologies," says Rani Cleetez, Financial Analyst for Frost & Sullivan's Business & Financial Services group.
