Global Software Defined Radio (SDR) Market: Introduction
A software defined radio (SDR) is a radio communication system where the hardware components which are deployed into a radio are replaced by software on a personal computer or embedded system. The software defined radio (SDR) consists of a personal computer equipped with a sound card or other analog-to-digital converter, headed by some form of RF front end.
Software defined radios (SDR)s are the radios within which the physical layer functions are software defined, partially or completely. Some of the related technologies of software defined radios (SDR)s are adaptive radio, and cognitive radio. Software defined radios (SDR)s eliminate the risk of hardware replacement or customization according to the needs of the customer.

Global Software Defined Radio (SDR) Market - Dynamics
Reduction in Cost
Adoption of hardware based radio systems is reducing with the increased adoption of software defined radios (SDR). Traditional hardware based radio devices limit cross-functionality and can only be modified through physical intervention which increases the production cost and reduces the flexibility. The cost of modification and customization of the system has reduced with software defined radios (SDRs), which is driving the growth of the market. Software defined radios (SDRs) have also reduced the development costs drastically.
Increase in Flexibility
Software defined radio (SDR) has significant portions of an RF system which are governed by software, it follows that significant portions of the system’s functionality can be refined, modified, or even overhauled simply by downloading a new program file. The refinement and modification can be done on the existing software which reduces the cost as well as increases the scope of application of software defined radios (SDRs)
Extensive Software Development and Complicated PCB Design Hampering Growth of the Software Defined Radio (SDR) Market
Software defined radios (SDRs) generally require extensive software development and a complicated PCB design. This requires expertise and strong knowledge of PCB designing and software development as well as strong network infrastructure within the country. Many Asian countries such as India, China, Malaysia, and Indonesia which hold more than half of the world’s population do not have proper network infrastructure; this could hamper the growth of the market.
North America Expected to Dominate the Global Software Defined Radio (SDR) Market
In terms of region, the global software defined radio (SDR) market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to dominate the global software defined radio (SDR) market during the forecast period, due to developed network infrastructure in North America compared to other regions.
