Land mobile radios (LMRs), also known as private land mobile radio or public land mobile radio, are wireless communications systems used by terrestrial users in vehicles (mobiles) or on foot (hand portables). To support mission-critical voice communications, LMR systems have been deployed since the 1930s. Since the initial deployment of land mobile radios, many public safety and commercial agencies have migrated from basic LMR systems to more advanced communications systems. The LMR market is expected to be valued at USD 20.82 Billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 14.3% between 2016 and 2022. The growth of this market is propelled by the increasing demand for inexpensive and reliable land mobile radios, growing significance of efficient critical communication operations, application of LMRs in diverse industries, and transition of communication devices from analog to digital.
Harris Corporation, Motorola Solutions, Inc., Simoco, Raytheon Company, and JVCKENWOOD Corporation, Thales SA, Hytera Communications Corporation Limited, and Sepura PLC are some of the leading players in the LMR market. New product launches and developments, expansions, contracts, agreements, acquisitions, and collaborations are the key strategies adopted by major players to gain a competitive edge in the market.
Harris Corporation was the leading company in the LMR market in 2015. The company offers a wide product portfolio for a range of applications. It has established a strong brand name in the market on the back of its innovations, technological excellence, and sustainable and high-quality products.
