ABI Research: Critical Communications Market to Top $8B in 2017
Thursday, November 10, 2016 | Comments

ABI Research announced that the critical communications market, comprised of industrial/business, public safety, transportation and utilities business segments, is poised for solid growth during the next decade. The global market is on track to top $8 billion in 2017.

Important market drivers for melding two-way and trunked communications businesses include the threat of terrorism, police and fire radio system integration, as well as the expansion of business and industrial communications and radio networks for transportation and utilities, the market research firm said.

"Integration and interoperability of two-way radio networks is now mandatory due to the world's increasing complexity," said Lance Wilson, research director at ABI Research. "This includes present radio protocols like TETRA, DMR (Digital Mobile Radio), Project 25 (P25), as well as Long Term Evolution (LTE), which serves as a bridge to the mobile communications markets."

Ultimately, the critical communications market will bridge the gap between commercial two-way radio and mobile wireless communications, incorporating complex data services as well, an ABI Research statement said.
