TETRA ATEX Market Offers Growth Opportunity (4/18/12)

The TETRA ATEX market represents a significant growth opportunity for the TETRA community, according to new research from IMS Research, recently acquired by IHS. Volumes are projected to more than double during the next five years.

The TETRA terminals market has in recent years seen an increase in users of specialized devices such as ATEX and covert. IMS Research’s latest study of the TETRA terminals market confirms that in 2011, 5 percent of all TETRA shipments were ATEX devices.

“We are seeing increased success of TETRA ATEX in regions not traditionally associated with the TETRA technology,” said Deryn Evans, mobile radio market analyst at IMS Research. “In 2011 there was an increase in orders for the enhanced capability of TETRA ATEX radios, especially in regions where mining and oil and gas extraction are majority industries and these operations demand intrinsically safe (IS) equipment.”

The fire and rescue service segment and utilities sector are expected to drive further growth for ATEX. “The major terminal manufacturers now offer TETRA ATEX product lines with TETRA well positioned to be the technology of choice for IS operations,” Evans said.
