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 traditionally been limited by traditional hardware components. The United States represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 16.8% over the analysis period led by factors such as strong economic growth; 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 (LMR) 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.
