Hadapsar, India

In their latest report, Marketsandmarkets say that the Critical Communication market is expected to grow from USD 13.9 billion in 2019 to USD 19.8 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 7.4%. High demand for critical communication solutions from diverse industries such as public safety, transportation & medical, advanced features of critical communication network, and increasing need to modernise old equipment are the major driving factors for the market’s growth during the forecast period.

Additionally, the need for reliable and high-quality public safety communication systems and standardization of infrastructure platforms is expected to offer tremendous growth opportunities in the near future.

The researchers say that public safety, as a major adopter, is set to dominate the critical communication market in terms of share during the forecast period. Public safety is one of the most important responsibilities of any government; it involves protecting individuals from crimes and natural disasters. An effective public safety mechanism involves disaster management and coordination between organisations such as law enforcement and border control, firefighters, emergency medical services. Effective communication is imperative for these organisations while dealing with any natural or man-made disaster. Various agencies provide emergency and rescue services and ensuring public safety. The purpose of these agencies is to deal with typical emergencies and ad hoc emergencies as a part of their typical responsibilities. Spreading community awareness, running prevention programmes to detect, mitigate, and report emergencies effectively are the major functions of these emergency solution providers. These service providers use critical communications systems during any emergency, such as natural and man-made disasters.

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 organisations 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.

Services play a crucial role in the growth of the critical communication market. Integration services comprise network-related services that include planning, design, installation, and implementation of networks. Increasing instances of threats and cyber attacks and the emergence of sophisticated attacks are forcing several organisations and government organisations to upgrade their communications systems consistently. In addition, new networks also pose significant challenges for governments regarding management and operations.

The global market for maintenance services is highly fragmented and comprises players from diverse backgrounds, ranging from specialised managed security services (MSS) providers to telecommunication companies, system integrators, and value-added resellers. Providers of consulting services are responsible for identifying and mitigating risks effectively and efficiently. As a result, the service offerings expected to grow with higher CAGR during the forecast period.
