Broadcast RF End-use Equipment Market Steady and Continues to be Dominated by DTV

Oyster Bay, New York - 14 May 2015

The global market for Broadcast RF End-use Equipment is still driven by DTV for the most part. This market, valued at US$1 billion annually, is expected to remain healthy and steady for the next decade. “Historically this market has been viewed as flat and not very exciting,” says Research Director Lance Wilson of ABI Research. “In general, most of the RF industry as a whole has overlooked and dismissed it—that it turns out, was an error. DTV and FM broadcasting are still expanding at a measured but nevertheless positive rate.”

This market is powered by the rise in digital broadcasting—both television and radio, but especially DTV. Some analog TV services are starting to decline somewhat, but the total demand for RF end-use equipment for broadcasting looks promising for the next 10 years. Regionally, growth will be driven by the phased switchover to digital TV as it occurs in different countries.“Historically this market has favored well-established incumbents,” says Wilson. “But it’s not at all an adverse environment for new entrants if performance and pricing goals are met.”
