Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) Market size is anticipated to grow rapidly in the coming years due to globally increasing need for secure communications in the military applications. Reliable & secure connectivity in military networks is crucial as sensors, vehicles, and soldiers are becoming increasingly connected for enhanced situational awareness & communications. These networks help in enhancing troop agility and will benefit in battlefield situations by prompt intelligence, command, communications, and control. Field communication modules, such as software defined data links and soldier-borne radio communications, are power constrained, signal processing intensive, and have strict security requirements and must also be jam resistant. The system ensures the secure & controlled communication from both ends, propelling the TETRA market growth.
Wireless communications have transitioned from analog to digital in the TETRA market. Digital two-way systems provide improved audio quality with a larger range than analog systems. The shift to digital systems was witnessed in the recent past due to their several advantages over analog systems, such as digital systems, allowing users to access the functionality of the cellular systems such as text & location services. Additionally, digital devices are more efficient at providing longer battery backup than analog devices. Analog devices offer loss in voice quality when twisted for privacy reasons while digital devices are secure and do not provide any loss in voice while in operation, positively impacting the TETRA market.
The high cost of infrastructure is restraining the TETRA market growth. Reliable & secure communication is vital in extreme conditions & dangerous situations such as petrochemical plants, oil rigs, and off-shore wind parks, among others. Large-scale communication requires mission-critical & flexible platforms, which act as a communication backbone that increases the cost of the infrastructure. Additionally, the integration of advanced software & hardware increases the cost of infrastructure.
TETRA market is characterized by the modes of operation as Trunked Mode Operation (TMO) and Direct Mode Operation (DMO). TMO is conducted by using the system infrastructure and is used for long-distance communication purposes. For instance, Metro Services of Brussels communicates using the TMO of the system. DMO is conducted without the use of the infrastructure, thus DMO is used to communicate within a building or a society for communication over short-range.
TETRA market by device is categorized by the portable & vehicular devices. Portable devices are known for their benefits such as Bluetooth connectivity and emergency call features for the users. These encourage the users to opt for these devices, aiding the TETRA market growth. Vehicular devices offer various benefits such as the night mode that allows the users to view the console under tough lighting conditions. Additionally, these devices provide user authentication functions and call priority that encourage the users to adapt to vehicular devices.
TETRA market by the component is bifurcated as software & hardware. The software provides several services to enhance the system usage. For instance, it allows users to create and edit the subscriber profile. Furthermore, it offers image transmission services that encourage users to opt for the type. The software segment is expected to grow significantly due to its continuous upgrading of services.
The TETRA market caters to the requirements of several industries including transportation & logistics, military & defense, industrial, utilities, mining, home security, fire department, emergency & medical services, and others. The global consumption of oil is increasing and finding new oil is getting expensive & involves extreme exploration. Improved productivity & field safety can be achieved in the oil & gas industry by adopting the system to share vital information with workers for coordination in field operations. Additionally, remote sites can also be controlled by the system to preempt shutdowns of equipment. Several applications, such as real-time location tracking, alert management, etc., of the system in the transport & logistics industry are driving the TETRA market. Furthermore, last-minute changes in cargo and unexpected delays on the road with the shipments can be easily communicated with the system. Additionally, the data can be shared from an approved system via wired or wireless connections thus growing the TETRA market.
Asia Pacific TETRA market is expected to hold a major share due to the adoption of these systems in the infrastructure development. According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the FDI inflows in India in the Construction Development sector, which include built-up infrastructure, townships, and construction-development projects have reached USD 24.67 billion between April 2000 – December 2017. Modern rail transportation is a vital pillar for driving the economic development of cities and nations. The system provides front-line rail workers with enhanced workforce collaboration, increased situational awareness, and optimum in-field productivity. Emergency situations that can cause huge damage to rail tracks can be avoided using the system. For instance, if two rails are traveling on the same track in the opposite direction by system error, prompt communication can save several lives & financial losses.
Players operating in the TETRA market are Motorola Solutions, Inc., Thales Group, Hytera Communications Corporation Limited, Simoco Group, Airbus Defence and Space OY, Sepura PLC, JVC Kenwood Corporation, DAMM Cellular Systems A/S, Rohill Engineering B.V., BiTEA Limited, and Rolta India Limited. Companies are investing a huge amount in the R&D to innovate the products. For instance, Hytera Communications Corporation Limited invests more than 10% sales income in the R&D. Some companies are adopting M&A to reduce the competition & increase the portfolio. For instance, In March 2018, Motorola acquired the Airbus DS Communications, Inc.to strengthen the communication business.
