Hardware to dominate critical communication market during the forecast period
A few of the vital components forming a critical communications system are command and control systems, infrastructure equipment, and end-user devices. Hardware is expected to hold a larger share of the critical communication market, because of the rising demand from the ongoing as well as new deployment of critical communication networks in various end-use verticals such as public safety, transportation, utilities, mining, others. Moreover, major developments in oil and gas plants to improve their operations through intrinsically safe and highly reliable networks and concerns toward public safety and security are the key factors fueling the growth of the market.
LTE technology to account for the highest demand in the critical communication market during the forecast period
LTE is the next global standard for critical communications, according to several industry representatives, consultants, and end-users. Factors such as the adoption of LTE by FirstNet by public safety organizations in the US, the inclination of the UK Home Office toward LTE, and plans of South Korea to build a nationwide LTE network for public safety are driving the development of LTE for critical communications. The requirements of public safety communications are rapidly changing, involving the adoption of broadband-based multimedia applications, remote surveillance, and robotic technologies such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). As a result, public safety agencies are replacing their narrowband public safety networks with LTE-based networks.
North America to hold a major share of the critical communication market during the forecast period
North America is currently leading the global critical communication industry, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific, mainly due to ongoing technological advancements and rising adoption of digital LMR products by government and commercial sectors. The US government made the interoperability standard available to ensure efficient use of LMR technology products and fast and uninterrupted communication in case of catastrophic situations, such as the September 11 attack or Hurricane Katrina. North America is considered to be the most advanced region with regard to the adoption of critical communication technology and infrastructure. The protection of critical infrastructure is considered to be the most severe economic and national security challenge by the government of these countries.
