The North American In-Car Public Safety Computer Market represents a huge & profitable Opportunity. In the United States alone, recent estimates put the number of Police vehicles at over 500,000, Fire Fighting apparatus vehicles at over 150,000 and EMS (ambulances) at over 78,000. These numbers are for only Municipal, County and State run departments. So, for this group, the Total US Market Size for In-Car Computers is over 728,000.

Public Safety departments typically replace their in-vehicle computers every four to five years. If we use a five year replacement cycle, then 145,600 in-car computers will be purchased in the US every year.

The average price of the SFP system sold is $4500, including generally purchased communication and other options, and mounting hardware. Therefore, the market potential for the In-Car Computers in the USA, for this demographic, is approximately $655 million USD per year. If we include US Federal departments (Border Patrol, FBI, ICE, etc.) then the total US market potential is likely to be well over $1 billion. Total Canadian Public Safety department’s personnel is approximately 10% of the size of the US, so could represent an additional $100 million in market potential.
