Communications Sector Factsheet

The Communications sector is defined as a mix of fixed-line, cellular, satellite and internet based services. County Durham strengths lie in the research, design and development of mobile communication services, broadcast and internet services, biometric systems and terminal equipment.

The dramatic nature of growth in this sector means research and investment are strong. This is further encouraged by development already in place in County Durham in such areas as high speed optical detectors, telematics and commercial telecoms applications.

The UK cyber security market, currently worth around £2.8 billion, is expected to be one of the largest markets over the next two to three years.
