These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

A satellite transponder is a wireless communication device that is connected to a satellite for receiving and transmitting radio signals. Upon receiving the signal, it broadcasts it at varying frequencies that assists in the functioning of various identification, location and navigation systems such as GPS. Also, it selects different frequency values for both downlink and uplink to prevent the interference between signals. For instance, the Radio-Frequency Identification Device (RFID) transmits a coded signal upon receiving a request from a control point. The transponder output signal is tracked, and its position is continuously monitored. In addition, the input (receiver) and output (transmitter) frequencies are pre-assigned through which the device can operate over distances of thousands of miles.

Market Trends:
The increasing demand for High Definition Television (HDTV) sets and expansion in the Ku band applications are the key factors driving the growth of the market. The growing demand for new television platforms and rising number of video broadcasting subscribers have led the service providers to utilize satellite transponders to provide end-to-end HD video transmission. Furthermore, increasing adoption rates of Ku band frequencies for data, video and voice communications have positively impacted the market growth. The Ku band utilizes satellite transponders for high-bandwidth broadcasting and communication to the subscribers. Ku-band transponders are also used extensively for various Very-Small-Aperture Terminals (VSAT), mobile backhaul (MBH) and aeronautical applications. Additionally, the widespread implementation of the device in maritime broadband, in-flight and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications has further favored the market growth. For instance, the Automatic Identification System (AIS) used in ships utilizes transponders to communicate and supplement marine radar.
