Overview of the global land mobile radio (LMR) market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts that the global land mobile radio (LMR) market will grow at a CAGR of more than 10% by 2020. The market is witnessing a considerable shift towards digital LMRs owing to features like less power consumption, higher quality coverage, log display, availability of customized software applications, and high standards. Moreover, digital LMR also provides the voice processing technology by using digital signal processing (DSP) chips. Strong communication and band high efficiency will result in the augmented adoption of digital LMRs in the coming years.

The integration of LTE with LMR system capabilities will benefit LTE users by reducing the response time, delivering real-time information sharing, and permitting the transmission of complex voice and video data. Owing to the high availability of LMR and the usage of LTE technology in critical communication processes, the demand for devices that support both LTE and LMR networks is rising among organizations. Such devices will provide a competitive edge to organizations as they can switch easily between both technologies based on requirements. In addition, the integration of public and private LTE networks with LMR technology will also boost the growth prospects for the LMR market over the next four years.
