DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Report “Public Safety and Government Agencies Mission Critical Communications Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis” has been added to from offer.

Public Safety and Government Agencies Mission Critical Communications Market is expected to reach US$9,390.0 million by 2028, from US$5,807.5 million in 2021; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2021 to 2028.

The overall market has been segmented into four major regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa, and South and Central America. The mission critical communications (MCX) market for public safety and government agencies is growing due to the global rise in terrorism, highlighting the need for public safety and a reliable network in the event of an emergency. However, market growth is hampered by high implementation costs, constrained data transit capabilities, and limited bandwidth. Government investments in critical communication systems in the defense sector are likely to generate exciting opportunities for market players in the coming years.

Citizens expect 24/7 service and communication from government agencies. They want easy access to correct and up-to-date information and a smooth connection with the appropriate government officials. They also want services to be delivered quickly, efficiently and transparently, with prompt, efficient and open problem resolution. Many government agencies still rely on outdated communications infrastructure, such as leased PBX systems or Centrex-like systems. These outdated systems do not meet today’s high standards.

The systems are inflexible, difficult to manage, and expensive to maintain, leading to slower response times and lower production. Providing citizens with accurate information about government priorities, programs and actions helps establish government legitimacy. Governments develop and maintain excellent communication systems to be respectable actors in public spheres. These factors allow them to assess residents’ needs and preferences and promote a deliberative public arena for multi-stakeholder participation, informed policy debate, and emergency development effectiveness. All these issues are driving the demand for mission-critical communication systems among government organizations.

The critical communications market is segmented on the basis of components, technology, and geography. On the basis of components, the market is segmented into hardware, software and services. Based on technology, the market is segmented into LMR, LTE, and Wi-Fi Mesh. In terms of geography, the mission critical communications market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa and South America.

One of the emerging trends in the critical communications market for public safety and government agencies is the shift in enterprise focus towards implementing PTT solutions offered by upgraded LTE networks. LTE networks in mobile communications have replaced LMR communication technology. LTE networks are used by various organizations to provide enhanced communications.

Accordingly, a high-bandwidth architecture for critical PTT, push-to-locate, push-to-message, and push-to-alert communication services is being developed. Leading enterprises in various industries, including public safety, government, defense, transportation and logistics, are implementing LTE-powered solutions in their business applications to increase the productivity and efficiency of field personnel, streamline their workflow and minimize business hardware expenses. Wireless technologies such as WLAN and LTE in PTT devices enable communication in more locations.

As a cost-effective and feature-rich solution, the demand for LTE powered PTT systems is high. The major players are pursuing different business strategies such as mergers, collaborations, and product launches to meet the growing demands for these solutions.
