Latin America is in the growth stage of mobile wireless devices, equipment and infrastructure development which gives it a strong background of public safety and municipal wireless communication. However technology adoption in Latin America is at a slow pace as compared to other parts of the world. This might be due to some socio-economic, cultural or technological factors causing hindrance in the growth of public safety equipment in Latin America.
Many big players (such as Siemens and Motorola) are already well established in the Latin American market and have high market shares. This allows them an advantage in negotiations, particularly for contracts with local vendors and in improving the market of wireless broadband in the public safety and municipal wireless domain.
Wireless broadband technology is evolving at a slow rate in transportation, public safety, industrial usage and in public services. The need for development of wireless communication in the public safety domain and in the municipal wireless sector can be carried out with improvements in infrastructure and advanced network technologies usage in Latin America.
Latin America has limited spectrum, hence the spectrums used in many applications leads to congestion and network breakdown. There is a growing demand for public safety wireless communication systems in the region and satellite communication is used in times of disaster and emergencies where land communication does not work for navigation and gathering of system information.
The infrastructure development and services market is expected to see steady growth rate in the next seven years which will help in future growth of wireless communication in public safety and municipal wireless communication.
The public safety devices and equipment market as well as wireless technology market in Latin America is expected to grow exponentially in the next three years on the backdrop of strong infrastructure growth. This increase in wireless technology has future growth opportunities in public safety and municipal wireless communication.
