About the Professional Mobile Radio (PMR) Market
PMR (also known as private mobile radio in the UK and land mobile radio in North America) refers to field radio communications systems that use portable, mobile, repeaters, base station, and dispatch console radios. PMR is widely used as a convenient means of communication by enterprises and government establishments.
PMR provides a sophisticated radio trunking service that supports two-way radio communication for mobile users to connect to PMR data networks and voice telephony. It operates on standards such as TETRA, DMR, NXDN, and Tetrapol. It is broadly used in domains such as public safety and security, military, energy, oil and gas, transportation and logistics, aviation, and utilities for safe and reliable communication.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global PMR market to grow at a CAGR of 10.82% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global PMR market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated from the following:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Professional Mobile Radio (PMR) Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global professional mobile radio market: Airbus Group, Harris, JVCKenwood, Motorola Solutions, Thales, and Sepura.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Cartel Communication Systems, Cisco, Codan Radio, EXACOM, Hytera Communications, PowerTrunk, Simoco, SITA, Tait Communications, Uniden, and Zetron.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “An important trend that will boost market growth is the convergence of public and private LTE networks with PMR technology. PMR transmits voice through circuit switching technology, whereas VoLTE is carried as VoIP packets. LTE is likely to deliver voice services over an IMS that will transfer voice with PMR technology. Additionally, the emergence of LTE for tactical communication is focused toward broadband mobile data. One characteristic of data application is that it allows access to critical information directly from the field. LTE acts as an advantage for commercial operators as they can transmit heavy data traffic from their voice-based 2G and 3G services easily. LTE improves the data capabilities of a network to cope up with the unbound accessibility to data and communications.”
According to the report, a key growth driver is the rising demand for reliable and cost-effective PMRs. Dedicated PMR systems separate themselves from typical commercial public telecom networks on two factors ─ minimal time for deployment of a PMR system and a high level of application support by mission-specific communications network. PMR systems involve a lesser number of devices to cover a similar area. Therefore, a lesser amount of time is taken for implementing this service, which affects the cost of the dimensioning and execution of the network.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could restrict market growth is cross-border security issues. Growing concern over the security of sensitive data has confined the growth of organizations to their peripheries.
