The global man-portable communication system market reached a value of US$ 3.4 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 4.6 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.3% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use sectors. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

A man-portable communication system (MPCS) refers to a collection of compact, handheld and wearable devices used for tactical and on-site defense communications. It includes software-based radios, satellite communication devices, portable intercoms, military walkie-talkies, transceiver smartphones, two-way radios and personal digital assistants (PDAs). The system is deployed on land, military aircraft and ships to secure data and voice transmissions with anti-jamming features while minimizing the noises generated by military equipment and sirens. MPCS enhances the transmission range, flexibility and mobility, thus increasing the overall efficiency and success rate of military operations.

The rising number of criminal and terrorist activities across the globe is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. The implementation of defense modernization programs has enhanced the adoption of self-contained GPS systems, smartphones, radios and tactical communication devices, which is, in turn, creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, the rapidly increasing demand for advanced and light-weight electronic communication devices is also favoring the market growth. Additionally, MPCS is currently being integrated with Command and Control (C2) military defense systems across both the developed and emerging nations. The C2 systems use MPCS devices for a two-way flow of encrypted information between the military control centers and soldiers to ensure privacy and efficiency while handling sensitive information. Moreover, various technological advancements, including the integration of 4G and 5G networks into defense infrastructure for higher bandwidth and frequency, along with the utilization of various internet-based networks for enabling users to access real-time data, is projected to drive the market in the upcoming years.
