About the Software-Defined Radios (SDR) Market

SDR are partially or wholly software-configured radios that use a common platform across various applications (defense, homeland security, and commercial). They provide a universal full-duplex radio module that can be used across all the platforms and can be configured in the real-time field to offer flexibility, versatility, efficiency, and longer service life from a single set of batteries, all while providing significant size, weight, and power (SWAP) advantages. These radios have evolved as an efficient solution for secure and effective communication in the military, commercial, and homeland security sectors. Governments have initiated many projects for the development of SDR such as the US Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) program, ESSOR program, and SpeakEasy radio program. A major successful SDR venture is the JTRS that enables the armed forces to exchange data using a wide variety of new and existing communications systems.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global SDR market to grow at a CAGR of 11.82% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Software-Defined Radios (SDR) Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global software-defined radios (SDR) market: BAE Systems. L-3 Communications, Northrop Grumman, Rockwell Collins, and Thales Group.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Harris Corporation, Raytheon, Data Link Solutions, ViaSat, and Rohde & Schwarz.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A key trend that is expected to drive market growth is the availability of next generation reconfigurable radio equipment. Incorporating SDR technology in CR has enabled them to move to the next level of effective communication. The improvised CR can select frequency bands and type modulation types and power levels required according to the conditions and geographic regulations. This development mainly aims at the effective use of radio spectrum for communication. These type of radios need not define as a single piece equipment but can be merged into components that can spread across the entire network.”

According to the report, a key growth driver is the growing demand for effective communication systems. Since the 1990s, the SDR technology has undergone many developments and has been applied widely used across every sector. Major military equipment providers have been inspired by the Joint Tactical Radio System Joint Program Office (JTRS JPO) to adopt Software Communication Architecture as the operating system for radios.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could restrict market growth is spectrum management issues.
