Market Overview:

The global false base station (FBS) market is expected to grow at a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for FBSs from intelligence organizations and government structures for covert operations. Additionally, the growing adoption of FBSs by other end-user segments such as transportation and logistics, retail, and hospitality is also contributing to the growth of this market. However, factors such as high installation costs and lack of awareness about FBSs are restraining the growth of this market. On the basis of type, handheld false base stations accounted for a major share of the global false base station (FBS) market in 2017. This segment is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period due to its low installation costs and easy portability. Backpack false base stations are also witnessing high demand due their ability to provide coverage in difficult terrains where traditional cellular networks cannot reach effectively.

Global False Base Station (FBS) Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A false base station (FBS) is a man-made structure or object that is not part of the cellular network but appears to be a legitimate cell tower. Attackers can use FBSs to spoof or interfere with cellular communications, making it difficult for users to make calls, send text messages, or access the internet.


Handheld, it's usage.

The global handheld, it's usage and growth factor in false base station (FBS) market size was valued at USD 6.5 billion in 2015. The FBS is a device used to create the illusion of cellular coverage even if there is no actual cellular service present. It can be utilized for personal as well as commercial purposes such as public safety & security or transportation systems.


A backpack is a device that enables mobile stations to communicate with each other and with the base station. It also provides an interface between the base station and mobility equipment such as handsets. A typical backpack consists of a transceiver, power supply, data processing unit (DPU), memory, and an operating system. The DPU in a backpacks works on the principle of software defined radio (SDR).

Application Insights:

The intelligence organization segment dominated the market in 2017 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The growing need for enhanced network coverage and improved data connectivity among intelligence agencies is anticipated to drive the demand for FBS over the forecast period. Furthermore, governments are increasingly deploying FBSs at strategic locations to ensure better communication between different departments within government organizations as well as with external customers or partners.

The others application segment includes retail stores, public places (such as railway stations), corporate offices, education institutions, healthcare facilities and other recreational areas. These types of base stations are widely deployed across Europe due to high demand from mobile operators for providing enhanced network coverage in these applications areas along with a number of commercial spaces such as shopping malls or airports where there is a high volume of users accessing Wi-Fi hot spots on a regular basis.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The growth of the regional market can be attributed to increased defense and military expenditure by countries such as the U.S., China, India, and Russia among others. These expenditures are anticipated to drive demand for FBS in this region over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant growth over the next eight years owing to increasing investments by governments of emerging economies such as China and India for strengthening their intelligence gathering capabilities at a domestic level along with growing terrorist threats across various parts of Asia Pacific including South East Asia, Middle East & Africa, and Western regions including Australia among others. Moreover, rising demand for mobile connectivity across rural areas is also expected fuel regional product demand over the forecast period  (2018-2030).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for mobile data services: The number of mobile data users is increasing day by day due to the increase in the number of smartphones and other connected devices. This is driving the growth of the false base station market as these base stations are used to increase network capacity and coverage.
  • Growing need for small cell deployments: False base stations are being increasingly deployed along with small cells to provide better coverage and capacity in areas where traditional macrocellular networks cannot reach or have poor performance.
  • Proliferation of 4G LTE networks: 4G LTE networks are becoming more common, which is driving demand for false base stations that can support these high-speed networks.
  • Need for improved security and privacy: As cellular communications become more important, there is a greater need for improved security and privacy features, which false base stations can provide. This is helping to drive their adoption in many industries such as government, transportation, and healthcare sectors . 5
