About Public Safety LTE Devices
LTE is widely used among enterprises as well as public safety agencies for communicating with convenience. Due to the bandwidth limitations of 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.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global public safety LTE devices market to grow at a CAGR of 18.52% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global public safety LTE devices market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from sales of public safety LTE devices, sales of Enhanced Node B (eNB), handheld devices, routers, and modules. The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Public Safety LTE Devices Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global public safety LTE devices market: Alcatel-Lucent, General Dynamics Mission Systems, Harris, Motorola Solutions, and Raytheon.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Airbus, Airspan Networks, Cisco Systems, Ericsson, Huawei Technologies, and ZTE.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Increase in R&D initiatives is a key trend spurring growth in this market. The global public safety LTE devices market is still in its nascent stage. Moreover, alternative services such as land mobile radio (LMR) or professional mobile radio (PMR) technologies have a strong presence in the market. These communication technologies are still preferred for mission-critical operations. However, various companies are investing in R&D to develop LTE devices and related functionalities. This will increase the demand for these devices and make LTE a mainstream technology in the near future.”
According to the report, rise in demand for emergency communication solutions will be the key driver for market growth. In the recent past, there has been a significant increase in natural calamities and terrorism. Therefore, it has become imperative for countries worldwide to come up with effective countermeasures to handle such situations. During such scenarios, it is essential to communicate the right information to the right individual at the right time for safety and security reasons.
Further, the report states that widespread use of LMR or PMR technologies will be a huge challenge against the market growth. LMR or PMR technology-based devices have dominated the public safety devices market for decades. LMR is a field communication system that replaced analog and digital technologies used for public safety operations. LMR systems allow broadcast calls, group calls, emergency calls, and prioritization of users. In addition, they have low latency and include features that help organizations meet their security requirements. Common commercial public networks do not provide these features.
