Growing Civilian Traffic Boosts Global LMR Systems Market

The 2013 global LMR systems market was dominated by the military applications segment, which held a 17.8% market share. This is steadily reducing as the number of vehicles on the roads increases. The surge in the automotive industry caused by a heightened demand has put pressure on many countries to incorporate better methods for streamlining communications for traffic management. LMR systems offer one of the most successful methods and therefore receive substantial demand from civilian transportation segments. Other application segments of the global LMR systems market, apart from military and transportation, include construction and commercial.

 

Digital LMR Systems to Overtake Analog Systems by 2020

One of the most prominent trends in the global LMR systems market is the shifting preference of users from analog LMR systems to digital ones. Digital LMR systems offer superior characteristics in terms of battery life and overall efficiency in power consumption. Another advantage that digital LMR systems have over analog systems is the complexity of encryptions involved in it, leading to better security. Digital LMR systems include TETRA, TETRAPOL, Project 25, DMR, and dPMR. Of these, TETRA and Project 25 land mobile radio systems hold the largest market shares due to their enhanced encryption capabilities over the rest. Both these systems can also handle a large number of users over a single channel, allowing networked services to work more efficiently.Key companies in the global LMR systems market are also expected to merge LMR systems with high-speed cellular networks to provide next-gen products.

Of the two, the hand portable LMR systems segment held the larger market share in 2013; 55.9% of the market was taken up by hand portable LMR systems. The segment owes its strong performance to the huge scope of applications for it, including in the industries of construction, mining, and commercial. Mobile LMR systems, on the other hand, are expected to show substantial growth rates over the forecast period. The segment’s growth is attributed to increasing government purchases for the defense sector in order for personnel to communicate over harsh conditions.

North America Leads Consolidated Global LMR Systems Market

The U.S. government has made heavy investments in the global LMR systems market in the recent past. The intention behind the investment was to provide high-speed communication services that will allow the defense sector to meet the growing demands of modern communication. This put North America firmly in the lead for the 2013 global LMR systems market. Key players in the market include Nokia Networks, Thales Group, TE Connectivity, Raytheon Company, and Motorola Solutions, Inc. all the top players are increasing their emphasis on the Asia Pacific LMR systems market due to the high demand observed in the region’s emerging economies. The top players are competing fiercely against each other and have to provide a consistent flow of innovations in order to sustain profits.

The global LMR systems market was previously worth US$10.57 billion in 2013. The market is expected to reach an overall value of US$30.6 billion in 2020 if it adheres to its estimated CAGR of 16.9% from 2014 to 2020. This extremely optimistic CAGR seems but natural after reviewing the drivers of the global LMR systems market, which comfortably outweigh its restraints.

Driver guilty in fatal wrong-way crash on Highway 427

A judge has found 21-year-old Sabastian Prosa guilty on all 12 charges he faced in connection with a collision on Highway 427 in 2012 that killed a father and his teenaged daughter.

The Caledon man was found guilty of two counts of impaired driving causing death, two counts of criminal negligence causing death and two counts of operating a vehicle impaired causing death, along with six other offences.  

In the early hours of Aug. 5, 2012, 49-year-old Jayantha Wijeratne, his wife Antonette and their 16-year-old daughter Eleesha were in a minivan on Highway 427 near the ramp to the QEW when they were struck by an SUV travelling in the wrong direction driven by Prosa.

Jayantha and Eleesha were pronounced dead at the scene while Antonette suffered serious injuries in the collision.

Antonette was seen weeping in court as the verdict was announced.

“He made the right decision,” Antonette told reporters outside the court when asked about Justice Glenn Hainey’s verdict.

“Even though my husband and my daughter are not coming back, at least this nightmare is over.”

Antonette’s son, Brian Wijeratne, told reporters his sister Eleesha was his “other half,” and hoped attention paid to the case might convince drivers under the age of 21 to heed the law and refrain from consuming any alcohol while driving.

“I hope young people seeing this can get that message. Why would you put another family or your own through that.”

At one point during the trial, Prosa said he had reason to believe a club drug was dropped in his drink before he was involved in the collision. Prosa's blood sample was compromised before it could be tested for any club drug.

In an interview Friday afternoon, Mothers Against Drunk Driving victim services director Carolyn Swinson said that if Prosa was found not guilty, "it would have set a terrible precedent" where accused in impaired cases could claim they were incapacitated by some other noxious substance they did not willingly or knowingly ingest.

Mayor Jim Watson Proclaims Vesak Day in Ottawa, May 14, 2014

The International Buddhist flag was hoisted at Ottawa’s City Hall in honour of Vesak Day, which marks the birth, enlightenment and passing away of the Buddha.

Mayor Jim Watson delivered an official proclamation marking Vesak Day to the audience, which was at full capacity. He was joined by several other dignitaries, including His Excellency Pisan Manawapat, Ambassador of Thailand to Canada, H. E. Harry Narine Nawbatt, High Commissioner of the Republic of Guyana, MP Royal Galipeau, MPP Jack McLaren, MPP Yasir Naqvi, Ottawa City Councillor Shad Qudri and various diplomatic dignitaries. Official messages were also delivered on behalf of the Governor General, the Prime Minister of Canada and the Premier of Ontario. Although Vesak Day is recognized as an official holiday by the United Nations, this was the first time it was held at Ottawa City Hall, building on a celebration the previous year held at the Cambodian Buddhist temple in Stittsville. The event was the brainchild of Visita Leelaratna, a young professional who runs the Sirin Research Centre and Founder - Chairman of Vesak In Ottawa, with three others taking on advisory roles, including Most Venerable Master Bon Dat of Pho Da temple in Ottawa, Venerable Sam Rath of the Cambodian Temple in Stittsville, and Dr. Ian Prattis.
