Market Report Description

The Global Tactical Communication Market size is expected to reach $33.1 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 9.0% CAGR during the forecast period.

Tactical communication refers to the transmission of different types of information in military through one person to another in various parts of the world via orders or codes. Different verbal, written, visual, and auditory communications are used in tactical communication. Data transfer and voice-over communications are two possible forms of communication. Typically, it relies on a complex and diverse network of hardware as well as protocols to send data between people and places.

The demand in the tactical communication market is also anticipated to be fueled by the development of equipment and technological developments like the manufacture of ear canal earphones, active and passive noise cancelling equipment, and improved communication technologies. Currently, the military must enhance its tactical communication capabilities due to the swift transition to asymmetric warfare.

The development of the tactical communication industry is being driven by the worldwide armed forces' focus on improving the network-based communication capabilities of the military platforms across the land, air, and sea domains. Additionally, it is expected that the leading participants in the tactical communication business will have plenty of chances due to the integration of cellphones and software into the field of battle and the increase in government spending on military applications.

Also, due to increased investments in integrating cutting-edge battlefield technology as well as rising demand for network-centric warfare and satellite-based communication, the tactical communication industry has seen considerable expansion in recent years. Additionally, it is expected that an increase in the number of projects aimed at enhancing public safety in developing economies, technological advancements related to the miniaturization of technology, an increase in the frequency of criminal activity and terrorism, and a shift in emphasis toward ensuring the safety of the nation's soldiers will all contribute to the market's growth.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the production of all communications equipment, which has then had an impact on the tactical communication market. Due to a significant increase in demand for consumer electronics, there was a worldwide scarcity of semiconductors prior to the pandemic. Chip shortages in industrial manufacturing had already gotten worse due to international trade restrictions and the COVID-19 crisis. Production cycles were noticeably delayed as a result of the supply chain disruption, prompting businesses to suffer losses.

Market Growth Factors

Increased Incorporation Of Satcom In Military Communication

For military operations, satellite communication (SATCOM) is important because it offers communications that are not limited by a satellite's line of sight and can reach up to one-third of the planet. An aircraft can interact with air traffic control and other ground-based facilities while in the air owing to satellite communications. Voice and ground services are both possible. The introduction of internet protocol (IP)-based apps and new data-hungry cockpits has allowed SATCOM to offer vital safety information while also enhancing operational performance for the fleets of military aircraft that are now in use.

Government Spending On Military Applications Has Increased

Unsurprisingly, the military of China, India, as well as the United States are the among the largest militaries all around the world. Military duty is mandated in several countries. Of all countries, the United States spends the most on its armed forces. All of the Department of Defense's routine operations, wartime expenditures, the nuclear weapons program, overseas military support, and other expenditures associated with the Pentagon are included in its military budget.

Market Restraining Factors

Limited Supply Of Semiconductors In The Industry

In establishing commercial potential inside the tactical communication market, semiconductors are essential. The requirement for electronics chips as well as semiconductors within the tactical communication business has grown over the past several years because of the rise in demand of satellite communication and data-driven operations. Moreover, a sudden increase in consumer electronics demand on the commercial front followed by restrictions on international trade and travel as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, resulted in a worldwide shortage of semiconductors, which had an effect on the production of tactical communication systems.

Component Outlook

By component, the tactical communication market is bifurcated into hardware and software. In 2021, the hardware segment dominated the tactical communication market with the maximum revenue share. The dominance is a result of the growing need for sophisticated communication systems in a variety of military applications, including intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), combat, and logistical supply route tracking.

Technology Outlook

On the basis of technology, the tactical communication market is segmented into SATCOM, VHF/UHF/L-Band, HF communication and data link. In 2021, SATCOM procured a prominent revenue share in the tactical communication market. The growth is due to SATCOM technology's expanded use in military operations all around the world coupled with the advancement of communication infrastructure for naval, airborne, and space platforms.

Platform Outlook

Based on platform, the tactical communication market is fragmented into airborne, ground, naval and space. In 2021, the airborne segment procured a substantial revenue share in the tactical communication market. This is due to the importance of sophisticated aerial communications to the security of all military aircraft operations. High frequency, satellite, and software-defined radio technology solutions are all part of it.

Application Outlook

By application, the tactical communication market is divided into command & control; intelligence, surveillance & reconnaissance (ISR); situational awareness; and routine operations. In 2021, the ISR segment acquired a significant revenue share in the tactical communication market. Experts in intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) observe the enemy's conduct and follow their movements to know more about them.
