The world satellite transponders market stands enthused by the growing popularity of digital broadcast entertainment services, and digital video broadcast services. Backed by the growing popularity of ethnic programs, strong demand for satellite transponders in broadcasting applications is expected in the upcoming years.

In addition to cable and TV broadcasting, consumer broadband internet services, wireless telephone, data services, and direct radio are also expected to help keep demand sufficiently kindled.

With the developed markets reaching saturation in broadband penetration, developing markets of Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Eastern Europe, backed by waxing demand for internet protocol (IP) services, and the rise in number of broadband subscribers, will offer new opportunities for sustaining future growth.

Increased governmental involvement and spending in military satellite navigation, and positioning systems, and space exploration are expected to prop up demand patterns in the marketplace. The trend towards maintaining spare satellites as a backup for satellite failures, driven largely by reduced insurance coverage and high premium amounts, is expected to bode well for the satellite transponders market.

As stated by the recent report published by Global Industry Analysts Inc., Asia-Pacific, (including Japan) and Europe, dominate the global satellite transponders market, cornering a share of about 53.3% estimated in the year 2008.

Widespread penetration of high-definition television (HDTV), and interactive television among the average households in the developed countries translates into expanded market opportunities. Future opportunities will stem from developing nations including Asia-Pacific and Middle East/Africa markets, which are projected to surge at CAGRs in excess of 5% over the period 2011 through 2015.

Despite being threatened by rapid advancements in compression technology, sales of satellite transponders in the broadcasting application market worldwide are expected to rise by 442 units between the period 2008 to 2012. In Asia-Pacific, demand for satellite transponders for reserve purposes is projected to reach 358 units by the year 2012.

In Middle East/Africa, demand for satellite transponders in trunking applications is projected to climb at the fastest rate and reach 431 units by the year 2015. Europe represents the largest market for satellite transponders in the networking application, accounting for 48.5% of the global market as estimated in 2008.

Leading global and regional players operating in the industry include Thales Alenia Space, APT Satellite Holdings Limited, Boeing Satellite Systems International Inc., EADS Astrium, Eutelsat Communications, Horizon Satellite Services FZ LLC, Indian Space Research Organization, Intelsat Ltd., Intersputnik International Organization of Space Communications, Lockheed Martin Commercial Space Systems, Loral Space and Communications Inc., Space Systems/Loral (SS/L), Telesat, Mabuhay Philippines Satellite Corporation, NEC Toshiba Space Systems Ltd., Orbital Sciences Corp., Russian Satellite Communications Company, Satelites Mexicanos S.A. de C.V., SES SA, SES Astra, SES Americom Inc, New Skies Satellites Holdings Ltd, SES SIRIUS AB, and The Arab Satellite Communication Organization, among others.
