Global Software-Defined Radio (SDR) Markets to 2024 – Increase in Demand of SDR in Homeland Security & Commercial Applications Presents Lucrative Potential –

DUBLIN – () – The “Global Software Defined Radio Market (SDR): Focus on the platform (land, air, naval and space), bandwidth, component and application – analysis and forecast, 2019-2024” report added to supply.

The software-defined analysis of the radio industry forecasts the market to grow with a significant CAGR of 7.19% over the forecast period from 2019 to 2024. The North American region dominates the global software-defined market in 2018, while the Asia-Pacific region is expected to have highest growth rate during the forecast period.

The global software-defined radio market has gained widespread importance in military operations due to growing political conflicts, migration issues, and extensive defense modernization programs. The growing market for software-defined radio in space and the growing demand for AI in software-defined radio for military operations are likely to increase the possibilities for software-defined radio.

However, difficulties in maintaining software-defined radio and subsystems and interoperability issues are expected to hamper the overall growth of the software-defined radio market.

Expert quote

The Asia-Pacific (APAC) software-defined radio market is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. The increase in demand for software-defined radio in the Asia-Pacific region is due to growing tensions at the border between neighboring countries, rising defense spending and rising terrorist movements.

According to the analysis, China, Japan, South Korea and India contribute mainly to market growth in the Asia-Pacific region. Europe and the Asia-Pacific region are the most important regions for the development of a software-defined radio market. In addition, due to the smaller number of manufacturing companies in the Asia-Pacific region, there is a wide range of opportunities for both new and established players in the market.

The United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia and Italy are some of the prominent countries for the European software-defined radio market. The European market is likely to anticipate growth opportunities over the forecast period. The high demand for software-defined radios is due to the development of artificial intelligence for military operations to develop cognitive radios. In the Middle East, Israel is a prominent country involved in the development of advanced software-defined radio.
