The Demand for Broadband Connectivity to Burgeon the Satellite Transponders Market

Posted on: Oct-2017 | By: MarketDeeper | Electrical & Electronic Device

Around the world, there has been a significant increase in the digit of network connections making broadband connectivity a necessary technology to support evolving next-generation technologies such as smart infrastructure and Internet of things. A transponder is primarily utilized to create communication channel among receiver and transmitter, as the signals conveyed to the satellites from earth are at very low power level owing to the huge distance. They are provided on rent basis to numerous businesses with operations that are dependent on the satellite transmission such as media & broadcasting, telecom, and defense, among others.

They are obtainable in Ku-band, C-band, X-band, Ka-band, and others bandwidths, in which Ku-band and C-band are the most widespread bandwidths. Numerous telecommunication service providers across the globe are spending in more number of transponders so as to offer the broadband facility to distant regions globally. The satellite transponders’ demand is continuously growing predominantly owing to the rise in number of new subscribers for the Ku-band frequencies, which, in turn, is driving the growth of the satellite transponders market. Ku-band frequency is mainly used for voice, video communications, and data and hence, is the most preferred frequency.

Moreover, the growing implementation of Ka-band frequency for communication and high-bandwidth broadcasting has also fueled the growth of the market. Additionally, subscriber upgrades are also positively influencing the market growth. The development in application areas such as in-flight communications, machine to machine, and maritime broadband have also been uplifting the growth of the market. The probable diversification and surge in applications in the near future can be anticipated to further spur the market growth.

Furthermore, factors such as the improvement in the channel quality, advancement of high definition channels & UHDTVs, and the increasing figure of video broadcasting subscribers are boosting the growth of the market. Besides, the rise in high data applications and request for corporate enterprise networks are anticipated to further drive the demand for the transponder. On the other hand, high capital expenditure & difficulty in installation, the growth of cable transmissions &fiber optics, and satellite launch failures are few of the factors that may hamper the growth of the market.
