Advancements in communication technology are the key reasons for the growth of LI market. With increasing complications in the way communications are done, a more advanced LI system is the need of the hour. Some examples of communication types that are intercepted include VoIP, Email, NGN, MMS, SMS, images, and telephony. As per laws passed by governments all around the globe, it is mandatory for telecom and internet providers to support lawful interception. The legalities regarding lawful interception of communication data varies from country to country and may even differ from one state to the other.

Mobile Data Communication would be a significant contributor to the lawful interception market. In almost each and every country, there are laws and regulations that regulate lawful interception activities in the country. In countries where the laws are not yet complete and are not followed by the telecom providers completely due to lack of a full-fledged technical capability to support such interceptions, in many the LI activities are still done. 

Government in many countries does LI in the communications without any warrant or legal authorization. With regard to 2G, 3G and 4G data connections, LI is done for each of these communications whether for packet data or for voice callings. The share of 2G, 3G and 4G in the global lawful interception market has direct relation with the share of consumers for each telecom technology,” states AMR analyst.
