Global Lawful Interception Market (2021-2026) by Component, Network, Mediation Services, Interception, Network Technology, Communication Content, End Users, and, Geography, IGR Competitive Analysis, Impact of Covid-19, Ansoff Analysis


The Global Lawful Interception Market is estimated to be USD 3.81 Bn in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 9.2 Bn by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 19.2%.

Rising digitalization and advancements in communication technologies make it easier for cybercriminals to vest themselves in criminal activities and even in cyber-terrorism. This has led to an increase in the demand for interception warrants. All these factors have been contributing effectively to the growth of the lawful interception market.

The Interception needs to follow complete privacy during the complete investigation process. However, the data security threats from a malicious attacker to hack the intercepted information amidst growing technologies and internet accessibility is likely to hamper the process and is likely to hinder the market growth.

Market Dynamics


  • Growing Number Of Subversive Activities And Terrorism
  • Advancements in Communication Technology
  • Increase in the Number of Interception Warrants
  • Intercepted Data Security Concerns
  • Growing Deployment of 5G Networks
  • Interception Activities on IP Packets

Segments Covered

By Component, the Solutions segment is estimated to hold the highest market share. The interception solution providers offer solutions to both telecom operators and Internet Service Providers (ISP) through mobile and fixed networks. The increasing adoption of these solutions by the LEAs and the governments for real-time Interception is likely to increase the segment growth.

By Network, the Mobile Networks are estimated to hold the highest market share during the forecast period. The rising number of smartphones and other handheld device users has led to an implementation of law interception across different networks and related technologies such as wireless LAN (WLAN) and Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) technology. Along with the developments in the 5G network, many MNOs are optimistically preparing the integration of 5G lawful interception, which is likely to further augment the market's growth.

By Mediation Services, Handover Interface is estimated to hold the highest market share. The mediation device performs all tasks related to the delivery of intercepted communications to the LEA monitoring center. The handover interface is responsible for the data associated with the communication services of the target identity. The HI acts as an essential mode of mediation by signaling the telecom providers with the location information and related information to Interception. With the separate interfaces for relative administrative information, intercept related information, and content related information, the LEA authorities can be informed with the accurate subject matter effectively.

By Interception, the Hybrid segment is estimated to hold the highest market share. The hybrid Interception holds the combined abilities of both active and passive Interception that can help simplify the interception process standards across various mediation devices. Moreover, the hybrid interception provides high-speed internet access at a comparatively low cost. With the complex network architectures and service platforms presently available, this interception type is likely to create high demand in the market.

By Network Technology, the Long term Evolution (LTE) is estimated to hold the highest market share. With the development of 5G, followed by the deployment of these services, the Law interception is slowly integrating themselves to adapt to the 5G architecture by upgrading their monitoring centers and enabling 5G mediation centers. With the interoperability between the 4G and 5G networks, these interception services provide fast networking applications across different connections.

By Communication Content, Voice Communication segment is estimated to hold the highest market share. A voice decoder software can help decode audio from different types of multimedia communications files such as recorded files and real-time data streams to provide key interceptions about criminal activities. Though voice communication has been one of the most conventional forms, various intercept providers have been providing advanced features such as voice biometrics for language recognition and gender identification in Interception, increasing the segment's demand further.

By End User, the market is classified as Government and Law Enforcement Agency (LEAs). The Law Enforcement Agency (LEAs) is estimated to hold the highest market share among the two. These agencies comprise police and sheriff departments and provide criminal intelligence or homeland security information about the suspected criminals by intercepting such individuals' communications data in cyber crimes or organized crimes. Therefore, the LEAs are considered to be the major users of the lawful interception market. As the governments also promote the responsible interception acts undertaken by the LEAs, the demand by the stated user segment is likely to positively impact the market growth.

By Geography, North America is projected to lead the market. The factors attributed to the growth of the region are the advancement in the technologies such as 5G providing the region with well-developed Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Communication Service Providers (CSPs). These providers are offering various law interception solutions amidst the growing cybercrimes. The rising investments and the favorable government initiative regarding lawful Interception are promoting the growth of the market.

The Global Lawful Interception Market is segmented further based on Component, Network, Mediation Services, Interception, Network Technology, Communication Content, End Users, and, Geography.
