Global Control Room Market to Exceed $7B by 2019, Says Report

The global market for command-and-control room technologies and services is projected to exceed $7 billion by 2019, according to an IHS report.

As expectations toward emergency response change, further development of control rooms will be critical to handle the capabilities of future technologies. Along with changing legislation and initiatives such as next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) and 1-1-2 and the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), the market has become more dynamic, offering opportunity to suppliers that can enhance current technology.

Because of demand from major multinational LMR solution providers, the IHS critical communications team initiated and has continued research on the command-and-control room market covering its three biggest verticals: public safety, transportation and utilities. Because of the variation in the regional command-and-control room markets, IHS splits the study by region: Asia, Europe Middle East and Asia (EMEA), Latin America and North America.

Each report analyzes the revenues of critical control room technologies including CAD, geographic information systems (GIS), voice dispatch and others, as well as various types of services. Additionally, IHS measures the installed base of control room systems and seats on a country-by-country basis.

Each major region has unique trends with regard to command and control, a few of which stand out among the major findings. Across the three vertical markets is an increasing interest in analytical applications and data analysis. IHS observed a number of tenders surrounding CAD, for instance, where law enforcement agencies have desired a wider range of data inputs and applications.

A second trend, in more mature markets, is a movement toward service-oriented tenders because of the desire to optimize current technologies. As such, services have become a substantial part of the market in these regions. Finally, there is huge growth potential across technologies and services in the Indian and Chinese markets, which IHS believes will increase to about $929 million in 2019.

The report is called “Command-and-Control Rooms/Public-Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) Market – 2015.” The report follows a similar report last year that predicted the control room market would hit $4.4 billion by 2018.
