“The tactical communications market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 16.52%”

The tactical communications market is estimated to be valued at USD 8.62 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 18.53 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 16.52% between 2016 and 2021. The demand for more advanced tactical equipment has increased as older equipment require a large number of vehicles to transport, which limits their deployment flexibility. Furthermore, the bandwidth within which this equipment operates is unable to adequately meet the demand for modern network enabled applications. This is expected to drive the tactical communications market.

“Combat segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR in the tactical communications market”

The combat segment of the tactical communications market, by application, is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is due to the increasing usage of tactical communication systems by troops in the battlefield for extensive exchange of digital data garnered from sensors, weapons, computers, and command centers. The use of such systems in the battlefield has also increased as they have become more agile and are easier to set up compared to the legacy equipment, which restricted mobility.

Command & control is expected to be the second-fastest growing segment in the tactical communications market, by application.

“North America to account for a dominant share, whereas Asia-Pacific the fastest-growing regional market for tactical communications”

North America dominates the tactical communications market. The market in the region is mainly driven by the U.S. which has been focusing toward developing faster, stealthier, and more ruggedized communications systems for use in various terrains. The Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is expected to exhibit the highest growth rate in the tactical communication market during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021. This growth in tactical communications market in the APAC region can be attributed to the increase in the procurement of tactical communication systems by emerging economies and focus on strengthening their communications infrastructure in the defense sector.
