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% from 2016 to 2021. The objectives of this study are to analyze the market along with the statistics from 2016 to 2021 as well as to define, describe, and forecast the market on the basis of platform, type, technology, application and region. The year 2015 is considered to be the base year, whereas, 2016 to 2021 is considered as the forecast period for the market study.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the tactical communications market begins with capturing data on key tactical communications equipment revenues through secondary sources, such as Department of Defense, communications industries, journals, and paid databases. The tactical communication systems offerings are also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up procedure was employed to arrive at the overall tactical communications market size from the revenue of key players in the market. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments which were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key people such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. These data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown of profiles of primary is depicted in the below figure:

The tactical communication 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% from 2016 to 2021. Tactical communication systems are increasingly being deployed to support multiple missions which include target acquisition and battle damage assessment apart from ISR and border security missions as well as wide area surveillance in the battlefield.

On the basis of platform, the tactical communication market has been segmented into airborne, shipborne, land-based, and underwater systems. The underwater tactical communication systems segment in the tactical communication market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

On the basis of type, the tactical communication market has been segmented into soldier radio, manpack radio, high capacity data radio (HCDR), and vehicular intercommunication radio (VIC), among others. The vehicular intercommunication radios (VIC) segment dominates the market in terms of market size, and is expected to continue its dominance over the next five years. However, the manpack radios segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

On the basis of technology, the tactical communication market has been segmented into time-division multiplexing (TDM) and next-generation network (NGN) based tactical communication systems. The NGN tactical communication systems segment is projected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The tactical communication market in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is expected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period 2016 to 2021. Countries in the APAC region have been increasing their defense spending and are focusing toward strengthening their communications capabilities by procuring advanced tactical communication systems. This poses a huge market opportunity for tactical communication systems manufacturers.

Tactical Communications Market

The growth of the tactical communication market is expected to be restrained by factors such as issues related to ensuring seamless connectivity in a limited bandwidth.
