The global Public Safety LTE market worth USD 41.28 Billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 21.37%
There is wider acceptance to commercial public safety LTE as it has emerged as best-in-class solution for public-safety. Earlier, there was stronger dependency on LMR systems for critical voice communication. But there is spurred shift towards advance commercial mobile broadband standards like LTE for public safety as there resides an inefficiency in traditional LMR systems in terms of image, video and data communication.
The factors that have fueled the global public safety LTE market are increasing incidence of public security and safety threat from man-made and natural sources which pushed the security agencies to adopt faster and translucent communication channels for information gathering, human resources and critical applications.
In 2012, the Qatar Ministry of Interior came into limelight when it deplored a private 800 MHz LTE network. After that, lot of public safety LTE networks have sprung up in countries like Laos, Kenya, Turkey, the UAE and China. Earlier investments made on public safety LTE was restrained to small-scale networks, but today nationwide rollouts in South Korea and the United States are expected to prompt substantial large-scale investments across the globe.
The European market is basically conquered by MVNO arrangements, like the UK Home Office's ESN (Emergency Services Network) program incorporate EE's commercial LTE network to distribute data and prioritized mission critical voice services especially for the UK's public safety agencies. EE is optimizing and enhancing its existing network along with additional sites, dedicated mobile core and satellite backhaul for first responders, among other investments as part of the program. In the forthcoming years, Europe is anticipated to hold largest public safety LTE market size. The reason is accredited as higher need for compliance management and strong security measures owing to higher public safety online applications for eyeing on unmanned vehicles, video sharing and video surveillances.
The public safety LTE market is segmented on the basis of product types, which have following categories, public safety LTE devices (including commercial LTE and private LTE) and public safety infrastructure (including evolved packet core, radio access network, and mobile backhaul and transport). On the grounds of end users, the global public safety LTE & mobile broadband market is classified as vehicle mount routers & terminals, USB dongles, smartphones and hand portable terminals, tablets & notebook PCs, and others. Further classification based on application, the categories are video applications, GIS, AVLS and mapping, bulk multimedia/data transfers, ), telemetry and remote diagnostics, remote database access, situational awareness applications, CAD (computer aided dispatching mobile VPN access and security and PTT & voice over LTE.
