Global Lawful Interception Market (Components, Communication Technology, Networking Technology and Geography) - Forecast 2012 to 2020

Lawful interception is the process of obtaining data through electronic communication protocol with the consent of legal authorities. The goal of this report is to analyze the current and future trends of the lawful interception market as it is expected that more security agencies across the globe would access the system to address security concerns. The study covers an in-depth analysis of the market potential of the various communication and networking technologies involved in the process. The report analyzes opportunities in the developed as well as emerging economies so that companies can make strategies as per their targeted regions.

Globally, the security threats are increasing by the day; lawful interception would provide enhanced security in such situations. Therefore, growing security concerns is the key driver for the market. Additionally, the advances in communication and networking technology allow ease to initiate lawful interception, which is another important driver for the market. However, a major restraint for the market growth is that the process of lawful interception increases the threat to privacy as the investigation by private agencies could prove to be unreliable. To protect the privacy concerns, government agencies are making stringent laws. However, adhering to these laws can pose several challenges to investigating agencies to provide better security measures, which is another factor limiting the market growth. New communication intercepting techniques such as data mining and wiretapping offer better growth opportunities for the market.

Lawful Interception Market Analysis by Components Market
The various components used in the market are management servers, intercept access points (IAPS), decoder, mediation devices, and handover interface (HI). Management servers are being used in lawful interception since the evolution of the concept; therefore, it has the highest market share. However, handover interface is expected to grow at the highest rate as it has support from governments across the globe and it saves 25% time in single-point-of-control protocol (SPoC).

Lawful Interception Market Analysis by Communication Technology Market
The communication technology market is segmented into Next-Generation Network (NGN)
Voice over IP (VoIP), email, SMS, MMS, and telephony. The telephony technology is the most commonly used method in lawful interception, as it is a very mature technology that has existed for a very long time. Therefore, it has the highest share in the revenue of communication technology market. However, VoIP is expected to grow at the highest rate as it facilitates oral communication through devices connected over the internet.

Lawful Interception Market Analysis by Networking Technology Market
The networking technology market is segmented into GPRS/GSM, Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS), LTE, DSL, Cable, WLAN, and WiMAX. UTMS is the most mature communication as it is correlated to the telephony communication technology; therefore, UTMS has the highest revenue share in the market. However, the LTE market is expected to grow at the highest rate as it allows high speed internet access for communication technologies such as VoIP.

Lawful Interception Market Analysis by Geography
The geography market is segmented into various regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW). North America has the highest revenue share in the market due to government initiatives to make lawful interception. However, Asia-pacific is expected to grow at the highest rate as the demand for enhanced security is increasing in the emerging and highly populated nations of the region.

Competitive Landscape
Product launch is the most commonly used strategy by the companies in the market as most of the technologies are at an advanced stage and allows development of better products to serve the market. Some of the key companies profiled in this report are Aqsacom, Bluecoat, Cisco, Incognito Software, Net Optics, Netscout, Pine Lawful Interception B.V., Siemens, Verint, and Symantec, Inc.

High level Analysis
The report analyzes the potency of buyers & suppliers and the threat of substitute products and new entrants based on the Porter’s five force model. The market is technology dependent; therefore, the buyers have to depend on the services provided by technology providers which reduce the potency of buyers. Suppliers have moderate bargaining power as they have to make constant technological advances which require R&D investment. Threat of substitute products is high as companies are making constant innovations to develop new products. The market is heavily technology dependent which reduces the threat of new entrants. There is intense rivalry in the market as companies are constantly making technological advances to launch new products. The impact analysis of the top ten factors affecting the market is provided for the short and medium term. The key investment pockets are analyzed based on the market estimations of each segment. The key strategies adopted by the companies are analyzed in detail to give implications of the competitive scenario.
