Government agencies are also supporting telecommunications relay service providers by offering significant relaxations, thereby propelling the business growth. For instance, in July 2022, the Federal Communication Commission passed an Internet Protocol Relay Service Formula to compensate TRS providers from Interstate TRS Fund for the provision of service for the next 4 years of the compensation period based on the weighted average of providers’ reasonable costs.
 

Lack of standardization may restrain industry progression

The lack of standardization in TRS is a major factor restraining telecommunication relay service market demand. The difference between the policies followed by different countries is causing complications for deaf and speech-impaired people in making international calls, hampering the TRS adoption. However, positive efforts by governments toward implementing rules and regulations related to telecommunication relay services are likely to accelerate the product uptake over the next 10 years.
