Software Defined Radios Enable Efficient Handling of Multiple Standards
SDRs in defense segment will be more expensive than the other segments due to the complexity of the defense deployment. The sub segments of defense segment are airborne, naval, and land-based deployments. The airborne SDRs are more costly than the other two platforms. Land and naval SDRs respectively make up 35% and 25% of the total defense SDR market. Defense SDRs make up 80% of the global SDR market; commercial segment (5%) and homeland security segment (15%).
SDRs are increasingly becoming popular in the defense, commercial, and homeland security market due to the interoperability capability that they offer.
SDR market is expected to grow as the affinity towards it is increasing. It also provides increased flexibility to the armed forces by reducing the overall weight of the system and thereby aiding high mobility.
In the commercial segment, SDRs enable efficient handling of multiple standards such as 2G, 3G, 4G, and 4G advanced. The increasing penetration of smartphones will be driving the commercial SDR market.
The major markets for SDR will be U.S., India, and Brazil. India and China will be leaders in production of low cost commercial SDRs for everyday use. These SDRs will be used in devices such as Set top boxes and Wi-Fi modems.
The future growth will be from all the three segments and the penetration of SDR in the commercial segment is expected to increase.
