The global Mission critical communication market accounted for a valuation of USD 16.71 Billion in 2021, and it is projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.2% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030, reaching USD 48.30 Billion by 2030.
Mission critical communications are the ability to deliver a fast and reliable emergency response during a disaster and play a vital role in making the world safer. Mission critical communications offers secure communication technologies with digital features specifically designed for mission and business-critical use to boost productivity, safety, and operational efficiency. This further helps businesses better optimize resources and fast-track decision-making processes. Mission critical communications technologies are critical at sites specifically where security and environmental protection requirements are at their highest. Flexible and reliable mission critical communications technologies can support a company's diverse and mission-critical communication and collaboration requirements. The smooth transmission and sharing of voice, video, and data between employees accelerate team coordination and enhance situational awareness.
Increasing adoption of connected devices is one of the major factors expected to drive the growth of the global mission-critical communications market. Furthermore, the capability of mission critical communications systems to communicate in conditions where normal and commercial communication network does not operate is expected to drive the growth of the mission critical communication market. Moreover, the changing customer preference from existing technology to LTE technology is another factor expected to fuel the growth of the global mission critical communication market during the forecast period.
Over the last few decades, the telecommunications industry has experienced great technological advancements, with mobile, broadband, and internet services expanding in capabilities and reach around the world. At the end of 2019, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) estimated that there were over 4 billion internet users, with over 3 billion in developing nations. Despite advancements in internet and mobile service access, many people and companies remain isolated. Globally, 3 billion people are still without access to the internet. In Africa, just 294 million people out of a population of over 1 billion have access to the internet.
The COVID-19 pandemic has proven the crucial role that telecommunications infrastructure plays in keeping businesses, governments, and society linked and running, maybe more than any other event in human history. People from throughout the world rely on technology for knowledge, social isolation, and working from home as a result of the pandemic's economic and social devastation. Growth in data and voice traffic has benefited several telecom players, from broadband to mobile to data centre operators. As a result, as compared to other infrastructure sub-sectors, the telecom sector is functioning well. In contrast to many other industries, the telecommunications sector has been exempted from key COVID-19-related restrictions, such as stay-at-home orders and quarantine regulations, because it is considered a critical service. As more individuals work from home and rely on video conferencing to arrange meetings, certain telecom firms have benefited from the short-term rise in data traffic and increased use of internet services. In reality, growing reliance on connection and digital services has accompanied traffic growth.
The technology, media, and telecommunications (TMT) industry, on the other hand, is not immune to short- and medium-term upheavals. Short- and medium-term effects on four important aspects of the value chain: network buildout, operation and maintenance, service commercialization, and financing, to name a few. General macroeconomic effects, airtime distribution limits, and demand deficiencies at the bottom of the pyramid are all starting to have an influence.
Mission critical communication Market Dynamics
The growth of the global Mission critical communication market is driven by various factors, such as advance features offered with MCX systems and network and increasing demand of reliable network during emergencies. However, the market's growth is likely to be hindered by the limited spectrum bandwidth.
Mission critical communication Market Drivers
The ability of the mission critical communication systems to communicate in conditions where normal/commercial communication network does not operate have made them popular. The mission critical communication systems allow the individuals to easily call for backup irrespective of their location and availability of the commercial network. mission critical communication networks improve communication capabilities and lower the latency in communication, which helps enhance public safety in case of emergencies. Additionally, mission critical communication networks are designed to offer key elements of control such as call prioritization and pre-programmed interoperability during disasters allowing the neighboring systems to be used and other additional users to be added to the network irrespective of the radio technology deployed in their systems. mission critical communication systems and networks allow the users to make video calls during critical conditions, allowing them to share the condition of an area with public safety agencies (PSAs) in real-time and make the decision accordingly. Additionally, the increasing utilization of rugged handheld devices is also driving the market due to their ability to withstand harsh environmental conditions. Thus, the addition of such features, including reliable networks and efficient systems is expected to drive the growth of the market.
MCX Market Opportunity
LTE-Advanced is a cellular network standard that offers higher throughput than LTE networks. While the latter can deliver data at speeds of up to 300 MB per second, the former delivers speeds of up to 1 GB per second. LTE networks support the 1.4 MHz, 3 MHz, 5 MHz, 10 MHz, 15 MHz, and 20 MHz bandwidths, whereas LTE-Advanced supports a 70 MHz downlink and 40 MHZ uplink bandwidth. LTE-Advanced networks use multiple-in multiple-out technology to send data at a faster rate via one or more signals. The high data rate, high spectrum efficiency, two times higher theoretical throughput than LTE, and support from carrier aggregation of LTE-Advanced lends itself to developments in the communications industry. With these advanced features over the current LTE networks, several countries are planning to deploy LTE-Advanced public safety solutions during the forecast period, which is expected to offer a number of growth opportunities in the forecast period.
Mission critical communication (MCX) Market Restraints
Limited spectrum bandwidth
In recent years, mobile data traffic around the world has increased owing to rapid developments and expansion of wireless network coverage and capacity. The introduction of 5G mobile communications services that use millimeter-wave frequency bands is likely to be delayed due to issues over spectrum allocation in the 60 GHz frequency band. However, it is expected that the first rollout of the 5G service would use the 5 GHz band, with lower channel bandwidth, as suppliers may not have the time to build networks in the 60 GHz band by 2020. Moreover, since 5G uses a broader spectrum and multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technique on a large scale, the common public radio interface (CPRI) needs to be re-split. Considering the industry chain and 5G spectrum, sub-6G bands have become the preferred spectrum resource of mobile operators for the early deployment of 5G—3.5 GHz, being the topmost priority. It is difficult for each operator to obtain more than 100 MHz from the 3.5 GHz spectrum. Therefore, utilizing the limited spectrum resources to deliver expected 5G access rates is expected to hamper the growth of the mcx market, at least in the coming years.
