Global Mobile Broadband Market in Public Safety Sector 2016-2020

About Mobile Broadband in Public Safety

Due to the bandwidth limitations of the traditional voice-centric LMR networks, public safety agencies are interested in leveraging commercial cellular network technology to support the growing requirement of broadband applications. Considering its booming network, spectrum flexibility, and performance metrics, LTE has emerged as the leading entrant for public safety mobile broadband networks. Although LTE technologies are efficient in offering data applications, the market is in its nascent stage. Moreover, LTE will need a considerable amount of time to carve a niche in the global public safety industry, with its counterparts consolidating their presence and expanding in the market. To stay competitive, the public safety device vendors have to work toward increasing awareness of the features of mobile broadband consumer devices and equipment.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global mobile broadband in public safety market to grow at a CAGR of 8.13% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Mobile Broadband Market in Public Safety Sector 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global mobile broadband market in public safety sector: Digisat, General Dynamics Mission, Harris, Motorola, Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Huawei, Thales, ZTE, AT&T, Iridium, and Verizon.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Airbus, Airspan Networks, Alvarion, Cisco, Firetide, Gilat, Ground Control Systems, IBM, Lockheed Martin, Mesh Dynamics, NetMotion Wireless, Nokia Siemens Networks, Northrop Grumman, and Tata Advanced Systems.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A key trend which is boosting market growth is the interoperability of technology among public safety networks. The interoperability of LTE technology enables the exchange, interpretation, and sharing of data by multiple entities. Public safety solutions that use old equipment running on outdated technology can increase the maintenance cost. The increase in criminal activities and security breaches has led to a rise in the demand for a reliable technology to function efficiently in mission-critical public safety applications.

According to the report, a key growth driver is the advancements in mobile broadband technology. Mobile broadband technology, LTE, which transmits high-speed data, video, and voice, has become the mainstream standard for mobile communication. Moreover, advances in existing technologies such as LMR systems are increasing the demand for such services for public safety. Numerous public safety agencies are focusing on improving the security of their systems and further boosting the demand for advanced technologies such as LTE and VoLTE. LTE technology is also adopted by the major service providers worldwide.

Further, the report states that a major factor that could hamper market growth is the low adoption rate of LTE in developing countries. Considering that the adoption of LTE in public safety is in its nascent stage in several countries, the market will experience fluctuations over the forecast period before becoming the mainstream technology in the public safety domain. This is because installation and maintenance costs are high. At the moment, the adoption of this technology is comparatively low in developing countries because of its poor cost-effectiveness.
