False Base Station Market

False Base Station Market is Expected to be Flourished by the Rising Adoption of Biometric Authentication

The false base station market includes equipment and software to detect, localize and identify false mobile base station or IMSI-catchers. False base stations are devices used to intercept mobile phone traffic and tracking user location without consent. With rising threats of unauthorized surveillance and growing security risks, there is a surge in demand for solutions that can detect false base stations. Key applications of false base station devices include cellular network monitoring and rogue base station detection.

The global false base station market is estimated to be valued at US$ 80.33 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 10% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Dynamics
The rising adoption of biometric authentication on mobile devices is fueling the growth of the false base station market. Biometric authentication utilizes unique human characteristics such as fingerprints, face recognition, iris scans etc. to verify mobile users. However, biometric data captured by unauthorized false base stations poses serious security and privacy risks. Therefore, network operators and government agencies are increasingly implementing false base station detection solutions to identify rogue devices and protect biometric data of users. Additionally, the increasing number of 5G deployment worldwide is also driving the false base station market as 5G networks are more vulnerable to security attacks using IMSI-catchers or fake base stations. Although major technology players offer false base station detection solutions, growing security threats will continue to spur more innovations and market growth over the forecast period.

Segment Analysis
The global False Base Station Market is segmented by component into hardware, software, and services. The hardware segment dominated the market in 2018 due to high demand for physical equipment and devices required to emulate base station functions. The hardware segment is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period owing to periodic upgradation of hardware components.

PEST Analysis
Political: Some countries have strict regulations around deployment of false base stations for network security reasons. However, growth of private 5G networks is opening up opportunities.
Economic: Rapid digital transformation across industries is driving demand for advanced wireless communication networks. This is positively impacting the false base station market.
Social: Increasing mobile data usage and proliferation of IoT devices are key social factors boosting the market.
Technological: Emerging technologies like private 5G networks, multi-access edge computing and network slicing are expanding use cases for false base stations in applications such as industrial IoT.

Key Takeaways
Global False Base Station Market Demand is expected to witness high growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for network security testing and simulation.

North America region accounted for the largest market share in 2018 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. This is attributed to heavy investments in private 5G networks by major US tech giants and stringent regulatory environment.
