This market research study analyzes the leading vendors in the public safety LTE market in the US such as General Dynamics Mission Systems, Harris, Motorola Solutions, and Raytheon. A competitive analysis of this market is presented by devices (smartphones and handheld devices, eNodeB, and router and modules). This report also presents a comprehensive analysis of the primary growth drivers, trends, and challenges of this market.

Overview of the public safety LTE market in the US

Extensive research carried out by the market research analysts at Technavio has shown that the public safety LTE market in the US will grow impressively and will post a staggering CAGR of more than 19% during the forecast period. With several innovations in LTE technology, the market for public safety LTE in the US is expected to have a positive outlook in the coming years. The increase in demand for public safety LTE applications will be governed by R&D innovations and optimization of support equipment and devices. For instance, the emergence of LMR systems will allow end users to be less dependent on one infrastructure vendor. Many public safety agencies are focusing on improving the security of their systems, which will boost the demand for advanced technologies such as LTE and VoLTE.

The increasing number of devices supporting LTE and LMR networks is a significant trend propelling this market’s growth prospects. In the commercial space, the use of LTE for public security is gaining traction at a faster rate. Commercial networks are being deployed across the globe, which has led consumers to buy LTE-enabled devices. Moreover, LTE is being used for the safety and security of crew related to onshore and offshore oil exploration in the US. Also, with the availability of LMR networks, the demand for devices that support both LTE and LMR networks will increase significantly over the next four years.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The public safety LTE market in the US is highly fragmented owing to the presence of many well-established vendors. The vendors are in a constant need to incorporate the latest technologies in their offerings to remain competitive in the market. It is also imperative for them to distinguish their products and services from other players in the market. The majority of vendors are investing heavily in R&D to develop products that would meet the rising consumer demands. The competition among the vendors is expected to increase considerably over the forecast period.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • General Dynamics Mission Systems
  • Harris
  • Motorola Solutions
  • Raytheon

Other prominent vendors in the market are Alcatel-Lucent, Alvarion, Airbus Defense and Space, Airspan Networks, Aviat Networks, BAE Systems, Cisco Systems, Ericsson, Firetide, Gilat, Huawei Technologies the USA, Nokia Siemens Networks, West Safety Services, and ZTE.

Segmentation by devices and analysis of the public safety LTE devices market in the US

  • Smartphones and handheld devices
  • eNodeB
  • Router and modules

During 2015, the eNodeB segment accounted for the majority of market shares and is expected to continue its dominance until the end of 2020. eNB is an essential component in LTE networks and has been successful in data-intensive markets worldwide. This technology is the next step to help operators improve their outdoor and indoor LTE coverage efficiently and economically. For instance, General Dynamics Mission Systems has a 4G LTE technology that offers instant access to video, voice, data, and text to first responders with exclusive eNB products and open-source platforms.

Growth drivers, challenges, and upcoming trends: Improved VoLTE devices batteries

The availability of a variety of handsets gives the subscriber an option to choose a particular wireless communication technology. VoLTE is built on a high level of architecture, and it offers operators many operational benefits and cost savings. Also, it eliminates the need for voice and data on separate networks and creates new revenue potential with video calls over LTE multimedia services and rich communication services (RCS).  As the demand for voice calls is likely to increase, the deployment of VoLTE devices with improved batteries will impel this market’s growth over the coming four years.
