Digital Radio: Turning Up the Volume on Satellite and Terrestrial Radio Adoption
In-Stat/MDR, December 2005, Pages: 42
Worldwide, the combined market of both digital satellite and terrestrial radio will grow from approximately 5 million unit shipments in 2004 to 22 million unit shipments in 2009. The primary drivers for this growth will be new and compelling content, data services, price erosion for digital radio receivers, and digital radio provider partnerships with new car manufacturers.
In the US, satellite radio is driving the digital radio market. In other markets, most notably in the UK, terrestrial digital audio broadcasting is driving it. The launch of Digital Multimedia Broadcast (DMB) services in Japan and Korea, along with increased promotional activity in Singapore, Australia and Taiwan over the next year, will drive digital radio shipments in Asia.
This recent report found the following:
Roughly 600 US AM and FM stations will broadcast in HD Radio technology by the end of 2005.
The two US satellite radio providers have reported significant subscriber numbers; XM is on track to report over 6 million subscribers by the end of 2005, while Sirius will reach over 3 million subscribers.
Commercial-free radio ranks as the top reason for purchasing a satellite radio, with 54% of surveyed satellite radio owners citing it.
"Digital Radio: Turning Up the Volume on Satellite and Terrestrial Radio Adoption" includes analysis of major international digital radio markets, forecasts for US satellite radio subscribers, and for digital radio units sold worldwide through 2009, segmented by region. It also contains the results of a survey of US consumers on digital radio, along with profiles of digital radio IC vendors.

Digital radio is the general term for audio services that are broadcasted in a digital format on either a satellite platform, or a terrestrial platform, such as Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB).
The growth in satellite radio adoption is driving digital radio shipments in the US. In other regions, most notably in the UK, the growth in terrestrial DAB adoption is driving digital radio shipments. The launch of Digital Multimedia Broadcast (DMB) services in Japan and Korea, along with increased promotional activity in Singapore, Australia and Taiwan, will drive digital radio shipments in Asia.
This latest report, "Digital Radio: Turning Up the Volume on Satellite and Terrestrial Radio Adoption" contains five-year unit shipments, ASP, and revenue forecasts for digital terrestrial and digital satellite radios (including DMB receivers that are not integrated into mobile phones). The forecasts are provided for the Americas, Europe, and Asia. A US satellite radio subscriber forecast and digital radio Bill of Materials are also included.
