REPORT HIGHLIGHTS

The global software defined radio market was valued at $41.9 billion in 2013 and $47.7 billion in 2014. The market is expected to reach $56.3 billion by 2019, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.4% from 2014 through 2019.

This report provides:

An overview of the global markets for software-defined radio (SDR) technologies.
Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2013 and 2014, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2019.
Market intelligence on SDR based solutions in the commercial, government, and military industry segments.
A breakdown of the market into the regions: North America, Europe, APAC, the Middle East, and the rest of the world
Discussion on technical developments that will decrease the cost of SDR products whilst meeting performance requirements specific to mobile communication networks.
Information on key suppliers of software defined radio products, and analyses based on their market share and product types.

SCOPE OF THE REPORT

This report presents the forecasts for the software-defined radio and cognitive radio markets for 2014 through 2019 on a volume and value basis.
SDR is an enabling technology that can be used by various market segments. As SDR finds applications in multiple market segments, it is impossible to cover them all in this report.
Indicatively, SDR finds applications in the military and defense, public safety and government (e.g., police, fire), and cellular communications industry sectors. Applications of SDR technology can be found in various other market segments. In fact, SDRs have the potential for impressive growth in some of these industries. Industrial applications for supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) are one such market. This report covers the following industrial segments:
Commercial.
Military.
Government and public safety.
As SDRs comprise an enabling technology as opposed to a market in itself, there are certain markets within these segments that are measured in this report.
For the commercial market, the focus is on the cellular base station and handset market.
For the military communications market, all airborne, naval and ground force tactical radios are considered.
For the civilian communications segment, the focus is on the public safety and homeland security market.
The geographic scope of this report is the global market. The following regions are considered:
North America.
Europe.
Middle East.
Asia-Pacific (APAC).
Rest of the world.
The cognitive radio market is also examined.

Forecasts are provided for radio infrastructure for 2014 through 2019 on a value basis. Again, all industries are considered.
The Executive Summary chapter presents global sales revenues for software-defined radios in the civilian market and base station forecasts for the commercial market.
The Overview chapter presents a description of the industry, the products, applications and technology.
The Software-Defined Radio in the Military and Civilian Market Segment chapter builds the case for SDR in the military and civilian market segments. In addition, technical barriers toward achieving ideal software-defined radio are analyzed, as are other technical details that relate to the technology.
The Software-Defined Radio in the Cellular Communications Market Segment chapter builds the case for SDR in the cellular communications market segment. The market drivers are discussed, as are technical issues specific to SDR when applied to the cellular communications market.
The Cognitive Radio Put into Context chapter builds the case for cognitive radio in the military, civilian and commercial markets. Market drivers specific to each area are analyzed, as are technical issues relating to the technology.
The Stakeholder Classification and Analysis chapter classifies the major stakeholders and analyzes the initiatives of major representative companies and institutions.
The U.S. Patent Analysis chapter covers innovative activities that impact both software-defined radio and cognitive radio. Patents are classified based on end-use applications and design aspects of SDRs and cognitive radios. They are also broken down based on timing, assignee countries and assignee organizations.
