On account of future growth opportunities in public safety, transportation, and mining segments, the land mobile radio systems market in Asia Pacific is poised to witness healthy growth during the forecast period 2015 – 2022.

Hismation: Land Mobile Radio Systems
Land mobile radio systems, also referred as professional mobile radio systems are wireless communication systems, which are integral to the mission critical operations carried out by public safety, homeland security, and first responder agencies among others. While security, flexibility, and efficiency are crucial to any land mobile radio system, land mobile manufacturers differentiate their product offerings majorly on the basis of features including coverage (reach), reliability, and interoperability.

The concept of land mobile radio systems traces its roots in the first half of the 20th century. The following figure represents the evolution of land mobile radios

Land Mobile Radio Systems (LMR) Market

Since then, radio devices have evolved becoming more lightweight, compact, and multi-featured. However, the technology employed in land mobile radio units had little evolved until recently, using the traditional analog mode for communication. The land mobile radio industry has recently witnessed a steady growth in the number of digital land mobile radio units owing to greater benefits offered in terms of audio clarity, coverage (reach), spectral efficiency, easy transition capability, durable battery life, and refined calling features. The following table best represents the comparison between digital and analog land mobile radio systems.
