IHS: 3 Million DMR, dPMR, Other Digital Terminals to Ship in 2018 (6/12/14)
Thursday, June 12, 2014 | Comments

More than 3 million “cost-optimized” Digital Mobile Radio, digital Private Mobile Radio (dPMR) and competing digital technology terminals will be shipped in 2018, outstripping analog and all other digital technology shipments, according to new market research.

IHS said that cost-optimized digital technologies, such as DMR, dPMR, NXDN and Chinese standard Professional Digital Trunking (PDT), are forecast to be the strongest growing digital communications technologies between 2014 and 2018.

“Sepura’s recent acquisition of Fylde Microsystems indicates the increased merger and acquisition (M&A) and partnership activity occurring in the professional mobile radio (PMR) market, especially with regard to those companies offering cost-optimized digital solutions,” an IHS statement said.

These digital technologies will see the greatest uptake in the commercial, utility, transportation and industrial sectors, where higher-cost technologies have not yet gained significant traction. In France, Italy, Eastern Europe and Germany, industrial activity and utility and transportation infrastructure are being heavily invested in and provide an infiltration opportunity for the lower-cost technologies.

The increasing range of digital solutions and increased competition between different technologies offer a wider choice and a variety of budget options for users. For countries or regions where there are price sensitivities or spectrum restrictions, the relevance of cost-optimized digital technologies in particular offer a cost effective and easy migration to digital, especially with price tiers that cater to a range of users.

The findings of this research are taken from the IHS study “DMR, dPMR and Competing Technologies – World – 2014.”
