July 20, 2016
This market research study presents a comprehensive analysis of the global public safety LTE devices market by revenue (routers and modules, handheld devices, and eNB) and by geography (APAC, EMEA, North America, and South and Central America). Leading vendors in the market are Alcatel-Lucent, General Dynamics Mission Systems, Harris, Motorola Solutions, and Raytheon.

Outlook of the public safety LTE devices market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global public safety LTE devices market to grow at an impressive CAGR of more than 18% over the forecast period. With a significant increase in natural disasters and terrorism, it has become imperative for countries around the world to come up with effective measures to cope with such situations. In such cases, it is of primary importance to communicate the right information to the right individual for safety and security reasons. LTE devices enable fire personnel to access real-time information about the environment they are securing. Also, police officers responding to an incident can access data and prepare themselves according to the situation. Since the provision of real-time information is critical during times of crisis, especially during a terror attack it will lead to an augmented demand for public safety LTE devices in the coming years.

In this market research report, the analysts have estimated factors such as increasing R&D initiatives to bolster this market’s growth prospects during the predicted period. Since the market for public safety LTE devices is still in its nascent stage, and alternative services such as LMR and PMR technologies have a strong presence in the market, these communication technologies are still the preferred option for mission control operations. However, several companies are investing substantially in R&D to develop LTE devices and related functionalities, which will propel this market’s growth in the next four years. For example, Motorola focuses on R&D efforts related to the existing technologies and the advancements of its business includes the development of new-age public safety solutions and smart public safety solutions.
