Global Software Defined Radio (SDR) Market to Reach US$33.2 billion by 2026
SDR represents a type of sophisticated radio communication that relies on software on personal computers or embedded systems rather than hardware components. The growth of the global market is influenced by factors such as spending on military communication systems, adoption of car radios, proliferation of connected devices, and investments in wireless technology. The increasing use of digital servers is driving the adoption of SDRs globally, with commercial use, military and public safety being the primary applications for these systems. The demand for SDRs is also propelled by their advanced features, ability to improve efficiency and reduce costs, continuous digitization and favorable regulations. SDRs are commonly used in space communications to improve satellite performance and accurately support multiple frequency bands. SDR architectures are expected to play an important role in the provision of specific telecommunications services, including radio broadcasts, digital television and video streaming. The commercial and technical viability of SDR technology is also being boosted by emerging technologies such as smart antennas, software, networking, signal processing, semiconductors and batteries.

Amid COVID-19 Crisis, Global Software Defined Radio (SDR) Market Estimated at US$21.6 billion in 2020, is expected to reach a revised size of US$33.2 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 7.2% over the analysis period.
