The overall market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa, and South America. Digital audio broadcasting (DAB) is a digital radio service that uses digital technology to enable broadcasters to package together several radio stations; the process is also called multiplexing. In DAB, analog audio is converted into a digital signal and transmitted in the amplitude modulation (AM) and frequency modulation (FM) range. DAB provides audio output of a compact disc (CD) quality on the FM band and FM-quality audio on the AM band. Advantages of DAB include audio reception with reduced rustle and disturbances caused by other stations. DAB transmitters work on the same frequency and allows users to switch on radio, choose their preferred channel, and listen to the best-quality audio.

DAB signals are transmitted in-band, on-channel with several stations carried within the same frequency spectrum. At the transmitting site, the signal is compressed using Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) algorithms and modulated using coded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (COFDM). DAB offers several advantages over conventional analog transmission, such as improved sound quality, reduced fading effects, enhanced immunity, and reduced noise and other interference. A DAB receiver includes a small display to provide information about the audio content. A few DAB stations provide up-to-the-minute news, sports updates, and weather bulletins. Further, DAB systems support radio data system services to send information to every radio program. Improved features such as band-scans over the entire frequency range is also propelling the growth of the DAB transmitters market.

The DAB Transmitter market is segmented on the basis of type, end user, and geography. Based on type, the market is segmented into low power DAB transmitters, medium power DAB transmitters, and high power DAB transmitters. The market by end user is bifurcated into broadcasters and network operators.
