Global military radio market

The global military radio market was valued at around $851 million in 2015 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of almost 8% by 2020. Increasing investments in emerging markets like the US, China, and India will be the primary driver of growth in the market. SDR is the most widely used radio in the military, and it is configured totally or partially by a software using a common platform across various areas depending on the application. Advanced SDRs provide secured end-to-end, reliable communications, and space, weight, and power (SWAP) advantages. It also enhances tactical communication in defense through effective transfer of information by using a maximum of the dynamic spectrum.

The introduction of hybrid technology involving SDR called cognitive radio (CR) that enhances spectrum management will drive the growth this market segment. It comprises a transceiver which detects the communication channels that are not in use and immediately moves them into vacant channels. It also determines the geographic locations, identifies and authorizes users, and helps in the encryptions or decryptions of various signals,” says Arushi Thakur, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on defense.
