The global market for Software Defined Radio (SDR) is forecast to reach US$34.8 billion by 2022, driven by the growing business and operational value of cross functionality in radio communications which has long been limited by traditional hardware components that can be modified only through physical intervention. Cost effectiveness and unrivalled flexibility that accompanies the ability to support multiple waveform standards are prime factors driving adoption rates in the market. The growth in the market is also poised to benefit from expanding applications in a range of industries such as aerospace, automotive, public safety, wireless LAN/WAN, telecom, transportation, short range communication, and cellular handsets. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market led by factors such as growing military spending in China, India and other East Asian countries; rise in infrastructure spending and the resulting need for SDR based Land Mobile Radio systems in public works projects; growing commitment among companies to build a robust safety culture by continuous measurement, assessment and adaptation and the ensuing rise in demand for SDR based radio systems for emergency and critical communications in commercial and industrial sectors; development of telecom infrastructure including evolution of wireless radio base stations towards SDR based architecture.
