Land mobile radio (LMR) is a terrestrial two-way wireless communication device used for critical communication by public safety and commercial organizations around the world. These radios are either carried by individuals or installed in vehicles. LMR systems typically consist of radios, base stations, repeaters, consoles and related accessories, and network infrastructure. Typically, LMR systems are deployed independently but can also be connected to other stationary systems such as cellular or public telephone networks. Over the years, LMR systems have become a vital component in the communications industry. There have been significant innovations in LMR systems owing to technological advancements and improved software systems. Companies such as Motorola Solutions, Inc., JVCKenwood Corporation, and Thales Group have invested heavily in LMR systems, which would significantly propel market growth. The increasing demand for LMR in private security services, rising need for military communication equipment, and growing defense expenditure are the key factors driving the growth of the global market. Furthermore, the rising adoption of LMR in industrial and commercial applications offers promising growth opportunities for market players. The increased use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the military is hindering market growth to a certain extent.
