Growing Adoption of LMR in Diverse Industries to Drive the Global Land Mobile Radio Market Through 2020, Says Technavio

LONDON--()--According to the latest market study released by Technavio, the global land mobile radio (LMR) market is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 10% during the forecast period.

This research report titled ‘Global Land Mobile Radio Market 2016-2020’ provides an in-depth analysis of the market in terms of revenue and emerging market trends. This market research report also includes an up to date analysis and forecasts for various market segments and all geographical regions.

“LMR has been in use for more than 70 years. It is one of the oldest forms of mobile communications. Earlier, it was primarily used by courier and taxi companies, utility companies, and security guards. With advances in technology, it was widely adopted by enterprises and public safety organizations. LMR solutions are suitable for operations that require transmitting frequent short voice or data messages from a central point to individuals,” says Rakesh Kumar Panda, a lead analyst at Technavio for M2M and connected devices research.

The report categorizes the global land mobile radio market into three major segments based on technology. They are:

  • Project 25 (P25)
  • Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA)
  • Digital mobile radio (DMR)

Project 25

The shipment of P25 devices is expected to reach 2.3 million units by 2020, growing at a CAGR of over 14%. The segment is expected to grow steadily during the forecast period. P25 is a user-driven standard. Public safety agencies and mission-critical land mobile communication providers have been operating together for many years and have developed the P25 technology for interoperable mission-critical communications.

Motorola Solutions supports the P25 and other standards in the LMR industry. The company has effectively tested P25 equipment for interoperability with nine competitive radio vendors: EFJohnson Technologies, Harris, RELM Wireless, Tait, Technisonic, Icom, Kenwood, PowerTrunk, and Thales Group.

In North American countries such as the US and Canada, the global LMR market is dominated by the P25 standard. P25 is a standard used by organizations in the US Federal Communications Commission, transportation and utility, oil and gas, and public safety to communicate with other agencies.

Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA)

The shipment of TETRA devices is expected to reach 3.6 million units by 2020, growing at a CAGR of over 33%. TETRA is an evolving standard with high growth potential. The segment is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period due to high adoption of TETRA technology worldwide.

TETRA has good spectrum efficiency and is available on a harmonized spectrum. It has unrivaled critical communication features such as security, short call set-up time, voice calls feature set, low-speed packet, and short data services. It operates on direct mode and site trunking. Its adoption is growing in existing and potential market segments such as public safety and commercial applications. In addition, TETRA does not require broadband data.

Major growth opportunities lie in the share growth of TETRA radio, which includes larger end-to-end solutions and hybrid TETRA/LTE. Sepura is the market leader and innovator in TETRA terminals and networks with a 40% market share.

Digital mobile radio (DMR)

The shipment of DMR devices is expected to reach 3 million units by 2020, growing at a CAGR of close to 15%. The segment is expected to grow considerably during 2016-2018 due to the adoption of DMR technology as a cost-efficient alternative to analog technology. It serves a wide range of markets from individual consumers to industries, public safety organizations, and professional or business-critical markets.

DMR technology can be used in unlicensed or licensed mode and at various levels, from low-cost unlicensed use to trunked operation. DMR is an alternative for users who cannot afford or want to avoid the complexities associated with TETRA. “Presently, DMR is the fastest growing digital market by volume, as it is a direct replacement for analog technology. The shipment of DMR devices is likely to surpass that of TETRA devices by 2019,” says Rakesh.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Airbus
  • Harris
  • JVC Kenwood
  • Motorola
  • Thales Group
  • Sepura
