This market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the global PMR market by devices (gateways, transceivers, and PMR handhelds), by technology (TETRA, DMR, and others), by usage (public safety and commercial applications), and by geography (APAC, Europe, North America, and ROW). The leading vendors in the market include Airbus, JVC Kenwood, Motorola, Thales, and Sepura.

Overview of the global professional mobile radio (PMR) market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts global professional mobile radio (PMR) market to grow at a CAGR of around 11% by 2020. PMR is one of the convenient means of communication and provides various advanced features such as group calls, broadcast calls, prioritization of users, and emergency calls that help in the efficient functioning of the enterprises and government establishments. PMR products operate in the harshest conditions and ensure communication support anywhere, anytime rightly suitable for remote applications. The high demand for PMR devices for public safety and mission critical applications primarily among government organizations will boost the growth prospects of this market during the forecast period.

One of the latest trends gaining prominence in the market is the convergence of public and private long-term evolution (LTE) networks with PMR technology.  The integration of LTE aspects with PMR systems will benefit LTE users by reducing the response time, delivering real-time information sharing, and permitting the transmission of complex voice and video data. The high availability of PMR and the growing application of LTE technology in critical communication processes has increased the demand for devices that support LTE and PMR networks among organizations.

Segmentation by devices and analysis of the PMR market

  • Gateways
  • Transceivers
  • PMR handhelds

The PMR handhelds will be the fastest-growing segment in the market and is expected to grow at a high CAGR of more than 15% by 2020. This segment is primarily driven by the increased availability of internet connectivity, demand for handheld devices, and rise in popularity of location-based applications in public safety, oil and gas, mining, industrial, and other sectors. The decline in the average selling price (ASP) of PMR devices and the increased penetration of terrestrial trunked radio (TETRA) in the transportation and mining domains are key factors encouraging the adoption of these devices.
