Hence, the transponder utilization of the existing satellites will increase significantly.

According to recent analysis, one of the major growth drivers in the market is the increased demand for TV and video transponders. The demand for FSS transponders has been increasing as a result of the high adoption of HDTV because HD channels require four-five times more capacity than a standard definition channel.

Further, analysts state that one of the major challenges in this market is the requirement for high capital investment. FSS operators spend a lot of money upfront to procure and launch satellites. Also, they have to pay for insurance because of the high risk involved in launching and the orbital placement of the satellite.

A fixed satellite service (FSS) is a satellite service that uses geosynchronous satellites for broadcasting purposes such as TV and radio, telecommunications, and satellite communication used by government and military organizations. An FSS offers services under two major category: wholesale services and managed services. The satellites used for FSS generally have a low power output. In addition, they require larger dish-style antennas for reception. Currently, there are almost 432 active geosynchronous satellites that are providing services across the globe.
