The Global Software Defined Radio (SDR) market, valued at $ 21.6 billion in 2020, is expected to reach a revised amount of $ 33.2 billion by 2026, increasing by CAGR of 7.2% in the analyzed period.

Global market growth has been driven by factors such as the cost of military communications systems, the adoption of car radios, the proliferation of connected devices and investment in wireless technology. The growing use of digital servers favors the adoption of SDRs worldwide, with commercial use, military and public safety being the main applications of these systems.

Demand for SDRs is also driven by their improved functionality, ability to improve efficiency and reduce costs, continued digitization and favorable regulations. SDRs are commonly used in space communications to improve satellite performance and accurately support multiple bands. SDR architectures are expected to play an important role in providing specific telecommunications services, including radio, digital television and video streaming.

The commercial and technical viability of SDR technology is also stimulated by emerging technologies such as smart antennas, software, networks, signal processing, semiconductors and batteries.

The successor, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is expected to grow by 5.9% CAGR to reach $ 5.9 billion by the end of the analysis period. After an in-depth analysis of the business consequences of the pandemic and the economic crisis caused by it, the growth in the transmitter segment is adjusted to a revised CAGR of 6% for the next 7 years.

Currently, this segment represents a 14.5% share of the global software-defined radio (SDR) market. The SDR receiver converts the complex signal processing required for communication transmitters and receivers into digital style. Transmitters are commonly used to produce and transmit electromagnetic waves designed to transmit messages and signals. These components allow significant volumes of data to be transmitted over long distances by frequency modulation.

The US market is estimated at $ 12.1 billion in 2021, while China is expected to reach $ 1.3 billion by 2026.

The US Software Defined Radio (SDR) market is estimated at $ 12.1 billion in 2021. The country currently accounts for 52% of the global market. China, the world’s second-largest economy, is expected to reach a market size of $ 1.3 billion in 2026, after a CAGR of 9.3% during the analysis period.

Other notable geographic markets include Japan and Canada, each forecasting to grow by 5.6% and 6.8% respectively over the period under review. Within Europe, Germany is expected to grow by approximately 6.5% CAGR, while the rest of the European market (as defined in the study) will reach $ 2.9 billion by the end of the analysis period.

North America and Europe remain at the forefront of the global SDR market due to factors such as levels of military spending, technological advances and the presence of leading players. The US market is managed by the Joint Tactical Network Center (JTNC) program, designed to offer technical support for wireless communications systems to the US Department of Defense.

The European market is expected to witness lucrative growth opportunities in the coming years due to ongoing AI developments for military operations and advances in cognitive radios. Growth in the Asia-Pacific region is driven by rising defense spending in developing countries, including India and China.

The software segment will reach $ 13 billion by 2026

The software component is expected to grow significantly due to growing demand for commercial applications. In addition to defining features and specifications, the software offers improved flexibility to balance network load and eliminate capacity bottlenecks to support packet-switched core transmission.

Growing use in various applications such as GPS, remote radio surveillance, text messaging, data information and voice access is expected to increase the demand for advanced software. In the global software (component) segment, the United States, Canada, Japan, China and Europe will manage 8.3% of the CAGR calculated for this segment.

These regional markets, which represent a combined market size of $ 7.2 billion in 2020, will reach an estimated $ 12.6 billion by the end of the analysis period. China will remain among the fastest growing in this cluster of regional markets. Led by countries such as Australia, India and South Korea, the Asia-Pacific market is expected to reach $ 330.8 million by 2026, while Latin America will expand by 6.6% CAGR during the analysis period.
