Outlook of the PMR market in North America

Technavio’s market research analyst has estimated the professional mobile radio (PMR) market in North America to grow at an impressive CAGR of more than 12% during the forecast period. The rising demand for reliable and cost-effective solutions for communication will foster the prospects for growth in this market.
