Market Dynamics

Global Push-to-Talk Over Cellular Market Drivers:

Deployment of LTE Network

The advent of long-term evolution (LTE) networks in mobile communication networks has replaced land-mobile radio communication technology to facilitate communication in more expansive areas. Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA), Third generation (3G), Project 25 (P25), Long Term Evolution (LTE), and the Internet of Things (IoT) have evolved over the years with the high deployment of various applications. This has instigated the development of a significant bandwidth architecture that underpins mission-critical push-to-talk (PTT), push-to-start, push-to-locate, and push-to-message communications services. Such subtle trends are observed in the global market and are highly important in public safety companies.

Consequently, there has been a rise in the requirement for push-to-talk solutions and a significant increase in demand for communication services that facilitate interoperable communication during crises or accidents.

Increase in the Number of Internet Users Around the World

Push-to-talk over cellular equipment and connecting solutions have extended communications beyond voice's sole function, including data transfer, video, and connectivity with backend systems. This has propelled the deployment of push-to-talk over cellular networks across the globe that maintain half-duplex push-to-talk communications with the resistance to interference offered by cellular phones. Thus, the rise in internet users worldwide is a significant factor driving the market growth during the forecast period.

In addition, the emergence of the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band includes a mid-band spectrum between 3550 and 3700 MHz over cellular pus-to-talk services. Some wireless internet service providers already use a portion of the band unlicensed to provide fixed wireless service. While CBRS primarily emphasizes 4G LTE services, there are no limitations on utilizing the 3.5 GHz range for emerging 5G services. Many nations prefer the mid-band spectrum, specifically the 3.5 GHz band since it has emerged as a crucial component of the strategy for next-generation spectrum allocation. For instance, in the U.S., 3.5 GHz, also known as the CBRS band, has been tapped for shared access with opportunities for operators and enterprises to add additional capacity and invest in private networks. This is also expected to drive the market's growth in the coming years.

Global Push-to-Talk Over Cellular Market Restraint:

Presence of Latency and Gaps in Communication

Communication latency gaps in the network create a backhaul for communication transmissions. The need for efficient fiber networks in major countries is restraining the deployment of fiber backhaul from supporting push-to-talk over cellular. For instance, the UK has one of the lowest levels of fiber penetration at 2%, while the European average stands at 9%. Major countries, including the UK, are incentivizing fiber network investments and introducing relief plans on new fiber network infrastructure to cope with the lack of fiber networks. This is expected to restrict the market's growth to a certain extent. Moreover, additional costs for enhanced network coverage and high-speed connectivity are anticipated to hinder the market's growth.

Global Push-to-Talk Over Cellular Market Opportunities:

Deployment of Next-Generation 5G Networks

The demand for 5G infrastructure to support IoT use will increase in the upcoming years. The industry is projected to find profitable prospects in cases like massive IoT, which necessitate extremely high connection densities of up to 1 million devices per square kilometer, with low data rates per device. The market's growth is driven by the more advanced deployment of 5G in countries such as the U.S., China, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan. The rising need for edge computing and the escalating volume of data produced by IoT devices is anticipated to fuel the desire for enhanced data speeds.

5G technology will provide unparalleled communication speeds, enhance the user experience, and improve real-time data processing capabilities. In addition, by 2024, 5G networks are expected to carry nearly one-third of the mobile data traffic globally. With the rise in mobile data traffic, the demand for technically advanced telecommunication networks will be high. The deployment of the 5G network will provide efficient network quality to consumers.
