The global market for TETRA Terminals is projected to reach 1 million units by 2022, driven by interoperability, need for secure communications, transition from analog to digital radio, establishment of emergency response teams, and growing applications in public safety and commercial markets. Continuous technology developments will continue to shape growth in the market such as:
  • integration of end-to-end encryption;
  • ability to disable the radio over-the-air to safeguard against misuse if the device is lost or stolen;
  • inclusion of advanced features such as WAP, Multi-Slot Packet Data support, GPS, database enquiries and field reporting;
  • among others.
Latest TETRA handsets also come integrated with TETRA Integrated Terminal Management (iTM) which allows safe and scalable provisioning, upgrade and monitoring of enterprise TETRA terminal users. As the enabling technology for Professional Mobile Radio (PMR), the TETRA market is poised to benefit from the strong business outlook for PMR systems. As governments worldwide step up their efforts to sharpen disaster preparedness/readiness and effectively handle emergency situations, the focus is on enhancing the overall emergency communication system wherein PMR systems will be pivotal. The expansion of first responder teams resulting in growing number of pre-emergency procurement contracts for telecommunications equipment and services including PMR systems bodes well for the market. Launch of community emergency response programs and formation of rapid response teams (RRTs) at hospitals will also benefit growth. Europe represents the largest market worldwide, with Germany implementing the world’s largest nationwide network for TETRA. Shipments to the region are growing at a rapid pace, with TETRA being the preferred technology for mission critical communication network rollouts, given the superior functionality and maturity of TETRA infrastructure and solutions. The success of TETRA in Europe is fueling the expansion of the market in other regions of the world, particularly in the light of the growing demand for ATEX and other devices with covert capabilities in public safety and security sectors. Trailing a CAGR of 8.7% % and 7.2% respectively over the analysis period, the Middle East & Africa, and Asia-Pacific rank as the fastest growing markets worldwide.
