Advantages of Push-to-talk Cellular Over Traditional Land Mobile Radio (LMR) Technology to Augment Market Growth: Persistence Market Research

Published On : Jun 23, 2021

The global push-to-talk over cellular (PTToC) market is estimated to be valued at US$ 4.3 Bn in 2021, and register a CAGR of over 11% during the forecast period (2021-2031), with revenues in the public safety and security segment growing at a robust 12.8% CAGR, according to a revised study by Persistence Market Research.

Land Mobile Radio (LMR) has been one of the most preferred communication networks for a variety of industries in the past few years. However, various limitations of LMR systems, such as short network range and high capital investment, are responsible for the growth of push-to-talk over cellular technology.

Push-to-talk over cellular removes the limitation of short network range and provides users a wide network range without the need to develop and maintain a costly and complex network. Due to significant benefits of push-to-talk technology, these systems are now widely used in a variety of industries, which include public safety, construction, utilities, and transportation. Thus, several advantages of push-to-talk over traditional LMR technology is one of the major factors fueling market growth.

Public sector and defense sectors are using push-to-talk services for safety level, optimum security, and ease of communication. There is an increase in demand for PTT services with LMR networks in these 2 sectors, and this results in opening new opportunities for push-to-talk solution providers. Defense sectors are using phones as walkie-talkies with unlimited range. This need is expected to create potential growth opportunities for push-to-talk services.
