Global research organization IHS predicted that the installed base for TETRA terminals in North and South America is set to increase by 14 percent by 2019, mostly driven by significant uptake in the transportation, utilities and industrial sectors. Notably, shipments into North America are projected to more than double from 2014 to 2019 with more than 30,000 TETRA terminal shipments forecast in the region.

“One of the most interesting developments around TETRA has been the traction gained in North America, with an increasing number of contracts being won for the technology in the region,” said Elizabeth Mead, HIS senior analyst, critical communications. “The traditionally strong feature set of TETRA devices is resulting in the technology seeing considerable success in sectors outside the public-safety markets, specifically in transportation and utilities.”

IHS further estimates that there remains a significant LMR analog installed base — more than 70 percent of existing mobile radio users — that are yet to convert to digital, indicating that the potential for growth of TETRA technology across all major regions remains strong.

“TETRA technology now represents 24 percent of the digital technology market for LMR worldwide and has achieved record shipment growth of 17 percent in 2014 in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region,” said Mead. “Even with an increase of digital technologies like Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) or digital Private Mobile Radio (dPMR), the TETRA market continues to develop.”
