The software defined radio market size is projected to grow from USD 11.4 billion in 2020 to USD 14.5 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2020 to 2025. Vital factors likely to drive the growth of the software defined radio market are rising adoption of SDRs in telecommunications and numerous technological developments in software defined radios. The increasing demand for software defined radios in advanced communication systems utilized for important missions in the aerospace sector will escalate the market growth.
The demand for software defined radios, especially in the commercial applications, such as telecommunication, transportation, and commercial aviation, has been affected to a great extent. Due to precautionary measures undertaken by many countries to stop the spread of COVID-19, several public/private development activities have been stopped, resulting in a drop in demand for software defined radios. However, this trend seems to vary from country to country. For instance, the demand for software defined radios in Europe and the Asia Pacific has been affected by the pandemic owing to the stoppage of development activities.
Based on application, the commercial segment of the software defined radio market is projected to witness the substantial growth during the forecast period
In terms of application, the market is segregated into commercial and defense.
