Satellite Transponder Market: Introduction
With growing number of network connections across the globe, broadband connectivity has become essential technology to support emerging next-generation technologies such as Internet of things and smart infrastructure. A transponder is mainly used to forms communication channel among transmitter and receiver, as the signals transmitted from earth to the satellites are at very low power level due to the large distance. These transponders are provided on lease basis to various industries with operations are based upon the satellite transmission such as telecom, media & broadcasting, and government, and defence, among others. They are available in C-band, Ku-band, Ka-band, X-band, and others bandwidths, wherein C-band, and Ku-band is the most popular bandwidths. Several telecommunication service provider globally are investing in more number of transponders in order to provide broadband facility to remote areas across the globe.
Satellite Transponder Market: Drivers and Restraints
Factors such as the rising number of video broadcasting subscribers, advancement in the channel quality and evolution of high definition channels and UHDTVs are thereby driving the market for satellite transponder. In addition to this, increase in high data applications, as well as demand for corporate enterprise networks is expected to further accelerated demand for satellite transponder during the forecast period. On the other hand, , as well as complexity in installation and high capital investment, growth of fibre optics & cable transmissions and failures in satellite launches may act as a restraint for the satellite transponder market.
