The report forecasts the global law enforcement software market to grow at a CAGR of 5.02% during the period 2016-2020.
Software licenses are classified into the following categories:
Term license: A term license is generally for two to three years and has a no return policy.
Subscription license: A subscription license includes unspecified products that become commercially available during the agreement period.
Perpetual license: A perpetual license has no return policy and no provision for value addition to the existing product.
According to the report, a key growth driver is the demand for higher levels of security. Safety of people has become a primary concern across the globe in line with the rising number of security threats. The instances of terrorist attacks and data thefts have increased, leading to a greater need for high-level security. The law enforcement sector is facing an increasing number of security threats. As a result of these terrorist attacks, security has become a priority for many nations, and they are adopting law enforcement software to help them solve crimes quickly.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could restrict market growth is the availability of open source software. A number of developers have built open-source law enforcement software that are available free of cost.
