"Defense Segment to Dominate; Commercial Segment to Register Strong Growth"

Defense segment covering software-defined radios used for military and homeland security applications represents the largest value contributing end-use segment in the global software defined market. The value contribution of defense segment stood at around three-fourth of the global market value in 2017. This dominance largely credited to superior benefits offered by these radios over traditional communication devices in terms of size, weight, portability, and interoperable communication necessary for enhancing situational awareness on the battlefield. Militaries across the globe are spending substantial amount on state-of-the-art communication equipment including software-defined radios. On the other hand, demand for software-defined radios in commercial space is expected to witness an upsurge during the forecast period.  The projected growth is expected to come from telecom sector since these radios are increasingly used at cellular base stations where standard upgrades and migration to next-generation technologies occur.
