Dublin, Ireland, March 22, 2018–According to a new research report from Research and Markets, the Global Satellite Transponder Market accounted for US$ 15.35 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach US$ 28.65 billion by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period.
Factors such as growth in KU-band & Ka-band services, technology upgrades in VSAT system and increasing demand for high throughput satellite (HTS) are propelling the market growth. However, factors such as growth of telecommunication network, requirement of huge capital investment and Satellite launch failures & operational anomalies are hampering the market.
A satellite transponder is a grouping of radio transmitter and radio receiver installed on a communications (radio, TV, data) satellite. When a ground stations transmits a radio signal the satellite, the transponder receives that signal, amplifies it, changes the frequency (usually to a lower frequency to avoid feedback with the receiving antenna) and transmits the signal (with its radio, TV or data content) as a satellite beam the ground, where it is received by different ground stations antenna that send the content onthe user.
C-Band is the unique frequency allocation for communications satellites. The lower frequencies used by C-Band perform better under adverse weather conditions than the Ku-band or Ka-band frequencies. The growth is attributed t-increasing usage of transponders of working on these bandwidths in weather forecasting, broadcasting, mapping and many more applications. C-band satellite service is better suited for subscribers with large bandwidth requirements.
