Mind Commerce expects network operator service revenues will account for as much as 80 % of all revenue, followed by infrastructure sales, integration services and device shipments.
New York, New York (PRWEB) May 02, 2012
Considered as the de-facto standard for Public Safety broadband communications, LTE is rapidly gaining momentum within the Public Safety industry. As a result Public Safety agencies, vendors and service provider are heavily investing in Public Safety LTE, with over 11 commercial contracts awards (as of March 2012), and several prominent international trials. Consequently the industry’s revenues touched nearly $ 240 Million at the end of 2011.
Driven by the growing demand for data intensive applications in Public Safety markets, the industry is set of grow at a CAGR of 90 % between 2011 and 2016. 2012 will see global spending on Public Safety LTE increase to over $ 850 Million, up 250 % from 240 Million in 2011. By 2016, Mind Commerce expects the global Public Safety LTE market to annually account for over $ 6 Billion in revenue. This presents a lucrative opportunity not only for vendors and system integrators, but also for operators, as a vast percentage of the revenue will be generated by operating the network.
Mind Commerce expects network operator service revenues will account for as much as 80 % of all revenue, followed by infrastructure sales, integration services and device shipments. Hence we expect a number of infrastructure manufacturers to follow the Build, Own and Operate (BOO) network deployment model.
From a subscriptions perspective, Mind Commerce expects Public Safety LTE subscriptions to reach nearly 120,000 throughout the United States by the end of 2012. The number is expected to grow heavily over the next 4 years reaching up to 2 Million subscribers worldwide in 2016, as Public Safety entities adopt LTE in other regional markets and as private LTE network deployments gain momentum. While first responders will be keen to adopt LTE to increase communications and situational awareness for Public Safety operations, it is important to note that this is by no means a replacement for traditional LMR (Land Mobile Radio) systems such as APCO 25 and TETRA, which will stay in place for years to come. Public Safety LTE subscriptions will barely represent 5 % of the total LMR user population even in 2016.
