IHS: Middle East, Africa to See Double-Digit TETRA Growth for Next 5 Years (9/9/14)
Tuesday, September 09, 2014 | Comments

The Middle East and Africa region is set to see double-digit growth in the TETRA market during the next five years.

“The industrial, transportation and utilities TETRA segments are all projected to experience double-digit growth during the next five years, building on more than 70,000 shipments of TETRA devices in the Middle East and Africa in 2013,” said Thomas Lynch, associate director, critical communications group for global research company IHS. “There are already a number of projects to trial and use Long Term Evolution (LTE) in the region — not just in public safety but also in oil and gas and transportation.”

“This is a vibrant market with no fear of innovation,” said TETRA + Critical Communications Association (TCCA) CEO Phil Kidner. “There are more than half a million TETRA users in this region, and there is significant progress in trials to assess the suitability of LTE. With that number set to increase, this is further demonstration that TETRA remains the foundation to build upon, both for new and for existing critical communications users.”

The second annual Critical Communications Middle East event is taking place in Dubai next week and will showcase some of the major players in this market. For further information, visit www.tandcca.com.
