What are the Top Market Drivers?

Effective tactical communication has become one of the most powerful weapons, hence there has been a growing focus on the development of advanced tactical radios. As a result of growing terrorism threats and border disputes, several countries are engaged in strengthening the defense and offense capabilities of their airborne, ground-based, and naval forces. Thus, the deployment and usage of tactical radios have rapidly been gaining momentum in recent years. There have been several investments in the defense industry directed at tactical radios in recent years, which would boost the overall market. Some of them are:

  1. In September 2021, L3Harris Technologies, Inc. signed a five-year contract worth over US $ 200 million with the US Army, for the delivery of 100,000 multi-channel software-defined Falcon IV AN / PRC-163 handheld radios and 65,000 AN / PRC -158 manpack radios.
  2. During the same period, Collins Aerospace (Raytheon Technologies Corporation) signed a three-year contract worth US $ 294.1 million, with the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD), to provide 8,085 AN / ARC-210 (v) radios that would be installed in more than 400 strategic and tactical airborne, seaborne, and land-based (mobile and fixed) platforms.
  3. Similarly, in April 2021, L3Harris Technologies, Inc. had signed a contract worth around US $ 50 million with an Asian country, for the delivery of Falcon III radios for dismounted soldiers, military ground vehicles, and base station applications.
  4. During the same period, Leonardo signed a contract with Boeing to provide its new software-defined radio, the SWave Airborne SDR SRT-800, for the fleet of E-3A Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft. The advanced airborne radio will provide secure and cyber-resilient air-to-air and air-to-ground connectivity for the AWACS fleet.

With the increasing number of global military operations, the quality of the radios has witnessed a colossal improvement over the years. Also, there has been a large procurement of advanced tactical radios from the ground, airborne, and naval forces across the globe, which provide better communication among different military platforms and result in effective cross-platform interoperability and support.

Tactical Radio Market Insights

Based on the platform type, the ground platform is expected to remain the biggest market for tactical radios in the foreseen future. These radios are frequently used for every ground-based tactical operation and mission. Moreover, with increasing terror threats and border disputes, the demand for ground tactical radios is expected to intensify.

Based on the product type, deployed tactical radios account for the dominant market share. With the increasing demand for effective communication for military personnel (armed forces, sir forces, and naval forces) on the move, deployed tactical radios have gained prominence.

Based on the frequency type, VHF / UHF is the most commonly used frequency type for tactical radios. VHF / UHF radios were considered as a breakthrough in the tactical radio market. They serve as a reliable source of two-way communication. Similarly, The HF tactical radios are generally used for long-range communication, but due to the limited availability of frequency and low bandwidth capacity, they are not used as broadly as their VHF / UHF counterparts.

Which region offers the best opportunity and growth?

North America is likely to maintain its supremacy in the tactical radio market throughout the forecast period. This is mostly due to the large investments made by the US DoD on tactical radios with the companies: L3 Harris Technologies, Inc., Raytheon Technologies Corporation, BAE Systems, and Elbit Systems Ltd.

  • Moreover, the US is the largest military spender globally, accounting for more than 1 / 3rd of the total share.
  • In addition, major market players have their presence or are headquartered in the US.
  • Concurrently, Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth in the global tactical radio market during the forecast period.
  • The key factors responsible for swift growth are increased demand for tactical radios by military forces and a rise in overall military expenditure (especially in China and India).
