The two-way radio equipment market is projected to grow from US$ 7,883.32 million in 2021 to US$ 12,034.52 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2021 to 2028.

Analog and digital two-way radios use a carrier frequency wave of very high frequency (VHF) or ultra high frequency (UHF) to convey signals over a radio channel. Analog radios encode a spoken signal into a carrier wave using frequency modulation (FM). Digital radios do the same thing, but before the voice signal reaches the carrier wave, it goes through an extra encoding step where the message is encoded into binary packets to modulate the carrier wave frequency. With the rise in business opportunities across all industries, the need for reliable and real time communication is increasing. Further, increased channel capacity, longer range coverage, better voice quality, longer battery life, GPS tracking, and trucking are the major benefits increasing the adoption of digital two way communication equipment. The use of a digital two-way radio system improves the performance and efficiency of the radio communications system. It opens the door to various integrated applications and solutions that can unify communications from end to end, transforming the way businesses work. The digital radio system also covers applications such as video and security, dispatch, and job tickets. The rising demand for digital two-way radio equipment is influencing the players to develop new products. For instance, Motorola Solutions announced the launch of MOTOTRBO R7 in January 2022. It is digital two-way radio equipment with superior audio features and a small, rugged design for connecting teams in loud, harsh, and dynamic environments. All these factors are influencing the adoption of digital two-way radio equipment over analog systems, which drives the two-way radio equipment market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Two-Way Radio Equipment Market 

The adoption of two-way radio equipment increased to enhance employee communication on the floor and ensure their safety before the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic led to disruptions of various industries, such as manufacturing, transportation & logistics, education, and retail. Several government initiatives to combat the spread of the virus, such as travel restrictions and social distancing, led to the temporary closure of retail units, manufacturing units, and educational institutions, which adversely impacted the two-way radio equipment market in the first two quaters of 2020. On the other hand, with the normalization of economic activities, the manufacturing facilities started to operate with half capacity, and retail outlets reopened with specified standards and norms. This scenario created a demand for the communication systems from the third quarter of 2020, thereby reducing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the two-way radio equipment market.
