Wellesley, Mass., March 10, 2015 – BCC Research (http://www.bccresearch.com) reveals in its new report on software-defined radios (SDRs), the market poses a promising future across all industry sectors. Between 2014 and 2019, the SDR market size will grow from $47.7 billion to $56.3 billion across the military and public safety communications sectors.

SDR is considered an important part of the wireless communications technology evolution and finds applications in satellite, transportation, commercial, government and public safety, and military industry segments. SDRs offer military and public safety communication systems a much higher degree of flexibility and upgradeability. With the use of SDRs, military and public safety communication systems no longer need to rely on hardware changes to implement a more sophisticated feature.

The military sector is a large SDR market segment that is experiencing high growth. An increasing number of armies and public safety organizations throughout the world use SDR solutions to meet their communications requirements. “A key market driver is the fact that SDRs enable different military units to communicate regardless of the frequency band or waveform that each particular unit employs for its communication requirements,” says BCC Research analyst Leonidas Sivridis.

In the cellular world, the market drivers for using SDRs tend to differ. There are fewer existing waveforms than military waveforms, and these waveforms are less spectrally diverse. In addition, commercial mobile operators are generally resistant to change. Most current cellular base stations, however, meet the wireless innovation forum’s SDR definition.

In SDR-enabled systems, key components of a radio that have traditionally been implemented in hardware are enforced in software. It has been an active research topic since the early 1990s, and the military has been at the forefront of this research.

Software-Defined Radio: Technologies and Global Markets presents the forecasts for the SDR and cognitive radio markets for 2014 through 2019 on volume and value basis. SDR is an enabling technology that can be used by various market segments. This report investigates the impact cognitive radio will have on each of the markets and forecasts growth in the commercial, government and public safety, and military industries.
