In unusual circumstances, when human life and other values for society get exposed to some kind of dangers or risks, reliable communication becomes crucial to take place between first responders in order to alleviate damage; the type of communication that takes place in such critical circumstances is known as critical communication. Such critical circumstances include natural and man-made calamities which have substantiated to be extremely expensive for organizations across the globe. They have resulted in the destruction of life, property and resources and have caused damage to organizations. One of the most typical critical communications that take place is for the “blue -lights agencies”. The blue-lights agencies include communication between emergency services such as ambulance, fire brigade, and police. Apart from the blue light agencies, most critical communications can also take place across different parts of society and industries such as mining, public utility, and transportation among others. Hence expansion of any such industry can mushroom the demand for critical communication devices, resulting in the growth of global critical communication market. Moreover, growing need for modernization and replacement of old equipment with better and sophisticated critical communication devices having advanced features impacts the market growth too. However, factors such as limited spectrum bandwidth of critical communication devices and use of multiple standards in devices such as 2G and 3G, increases the complexity of devices leading to high costs, and thereby posing threats to the market growth. Regionally, Asia Pacific region will drive the global growth of this market on account of increased expenditure in critical communication by the authorities to deal with terrorist breaches and expansion of various end user industries such as transportation in the region. Moreover, the growth of infrastructure activities will also impact the growth.
