The global market for Land Mobile Radio (LMR) Systems is forecast to exceed US$24 billion by 2022, driven by the growing efforts to enhance public safety communications with digital broadband capabilities, the ensuing convergence with LTE, and the resulting increase in the value and performance of traditional LMR technology. The United States represents the largest market worldwide supported by the country’s strong focus on disaster and emergency preparedness and an already robust network of emergency response teams. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 14.7% over the analysis period led by factors such as stringent workplace safety regulations on par with international standards and the ensuing increase in demand for commercial and industrial LMR radios; rising defense spending in southeast Asian countries and the resulting increase in demand for LMR in military radio communications; continued migration from analog to digital LMR and the growing interest in leveraging digital LMR for M2M communications.
