Software Defined Radio Market

Software Defined Radio Companies - L3Harris Technologies, Inc. (US), Raytheon Technologies Corporation (US) are the Key Players

The Software Defined Radio Market is projected to grow from USD 10.0 Billion in 2022 to USD 12.5 Billion by 2027, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.6% from 2022 to 2027.

The applications of communication systems developed previously over a decade were limited owing to the lack of interoperability across the spectrum along with their limited functions within a specified bandwidth. Such limitations are anticipated to curb the ability of these systems to fulfill the existing and future communication requirements of the users. This has also propelled several government authorities to focus on the development and procurement of new software defined radios that cater to data, video, and voice communications coupled with high interoperability.
