US Two-Way Radio Market Ecosystem

Recent Developments:

      • The total digitization has made the two-way radio market to enhance their analog system to digital, making more features including a sturdy body making its durability increase even in places where regular analogue radio communication shuts down just because of harsh environment. Due to the shifting to digital devices, clearer voice with upgraded noise cancellation and lower latency helps improve the once broken transmission into a seamless one.
      • With new innovation to features and providing accurate industry-specific solutions, the US two-way radio market is advancing further than expected. With GPS satellite tracking on each audio, users can get their location tracked from headquarter, even when they have a two-way radio. This ensures a viable locator with seamless transmission, rendering their demand even more, especially in rough terrain. With industrial sectors heeding to transportation, utilities and manufacturing, the two-way radios are programmed to handle all their needs in communication, tailored according to their domain of work.
      • With broader internet penetration, the two-way radio market is integrating their system with Internet of Things (IoT), which would allow them to easily collect data and transmit those data over traditional voice communication.


Future Outlook:

US Two-Way Radio Market is showing considerable growth over the years, moving forward with an expected CAGR of ~7% within a time period of 2022 to 2028. This rise is in the wake of digitization globally, which is pushing this market to rise up to the newer challenges.

        • With advancements in technologies, interoperability is getting into the systems, providing more range to communications connecting more than one source to the radios, enabling users to connect to different authorities of different hierarchy and maintaining a seamless transmission. Radio standards like P25 and Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) are proving to be brimming with such advancements.
        • Given the state of need for increased security, the two-way radios are provided with high encrypted algorithms to protect users from data loss and authentication algorithms to provide the users from losing their authenticity. This propulsion is making the market more reliable and secured to people use them without losing their data.
        • With the rising connectivity, harm to the environment is also a factor that the market is trying to focus on. With short waves that make up to bigger transmission microwaves and reach the other end are causing less issues than wired transmission due to the connectivity towers emit more radiation than these short-waves. To deal with this factor the market has made changes so that waves which are not harmful for day-to-day use are being transmitted.
