Man-Portable Communication Systems Increasing Demand in Software Defined and Mobile ad-Hoc Networks
The growth for this market will be sluggish in Europe and North America. There is a slight decline in the global share of advanced markets. The decline is not attributed to a reduction in defense expenditure of western markets (Europe and the U.S.), but rather significant investment growth in most emerging markets (BRIC).The Middle East region will continue to increase its spending in the portable communications market.
There will be an increasing demand in software defined radios, smartphones, GPS systems, along with other tactical communication devices and VSATs in the mature and emerging markets. Software solutions in software defined radios will be a key area for growth in this market. The major driving factor for this market will be Mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs).
Digital maps will also play a significant role in this market, which will allow the visualization of vehicle positions and traces. Communication with the Fleet Communication System (FCS) is realized by trunked radio, cellular, or satellite communication.
High-end satellite technology will be used in VSATs and SATCOMs that will provide ample opportunities for China and India in this market.
Harris Corporation, Rockwell Collins, General Dynamics Corporation, BAE Systems, and Saab AB, will be the market leaders occupying a significant market share.
Aselsan, Codan Limited, and ViaSat will expand significantly.
Man-portable communications in the public safety segment of Homeland Security is of critical importance and is a hot pocket for investment too.
This forecast suggests that emerging markets represent an opportunity for the U.S. defense industry due to domestic demand in emerging markets (BRIC) for telemetry products that will surpass domestic supply.
The man-portable communication systems market is estimated to be $30.15 billion in 2014 and is expected to register a CAGR of 5.56% to reach $39.52 billion in 2019. The key growth regions will be the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. Russia, India, Brazil, and South Africa will illustrate consistent levels of growth.
