Market Overview:

The global Ku-band BUC market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for broadband services, rising number of satellite launches, and growing adoption of Ku-band BUCs in communication on the move applications. Based on type, the high power segment is expected to account for a major share of the global Ku-band BUC market in 2018. This segment is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030 due to its ability to provide high power levels and cover large areas with minimal interference. Based on application, airborne applications are expected to account for a major share of the global Ku-Band BUC market in 2018.

Global Ku-Band BUC Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A Ku-band BUC is a type of satellite transmitter that uses the Ku-band frequency range. It is typically used to provide broadband internet service and other communications services to rural or remote areas. The importance of Ku-Band BUCs lies in their ability to provide high-speed data access in areas where traditional wired or wireless broadband service is not available.

High Power:

High Power (HP) is the power rating for Ku-band BUCs. It is used to indicate the maximum power that can be delivered to a satellite from its solar array at any given time. The higher the HP, the more efficient and powerful a satellite will be in terms of collecting and transmitting data.

The current highest powered satellites are: Eutelsat Communications S.A.

Middle Power:

Middle Power is a term used for power between 1-50 kW. It is the most commonly used power rating in the BUC industry. The key drivers of middle power include increased demand for data centers and telecom base stations, as well as growth in wireless sensor networks and industrial automation systems across several sectors such as oil & gas, utilities, manufacturing, mining & metals among others.

Application Insights:

The airborne application segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 50% in 2017. The demand is expected to be driven by applications such as wireless data, communication, and television broadcasting. The demand for satellite-based communication systems has witnessed a paradigm shift due to the development of high power semiconductor components and flexible software protocols that can support large bandwidths. This has led to an increase in usage of satellite systems in aviation sector which was previously dominated by terrestrial based technologies such as cellular phones and radio waves.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounted for a revenue share of more than 60% in 2017, owing to high demand from countries such as China, India, Japan and South Korea. Moreover, increasing investments by governments for building communication infrastructure are anticipated to drive regional growth over the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific region is characterized by significant demand from Australia and New Zealand on account of their large land area covered with bushland that needs replacement or upgrading of existing microwave systems with BUCs. However, slow economic growth in these regions has resulted in reduced spending on communication equipment; however this could change at a later stage when there is an urgent need for improvement or replacement of aging microwave equipment with modern day BUC systems that provide higher efficiency while consuming lesser power thereby reducing energy consumption as compared to traditional Microwave Systems ( Towers).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for satellite bandwidth: The growth in global IP traffic is expected to continue, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 31 percent from 2016 to 2021, according to Cisco. This will drive the need for more Ku-band capacity.
  • Proliferation of small satellites: The rise of small satellites is creating new opportunities for Ku-band BUCs. These spacecraft typically require less bandwidth than traditional large satellites, making them well-suited for Ku-band applications.
  • Shifting ground infrastructure deployments: With the increasing popularity of cloud services and other software-defined networking solutions, there is a growing demand for flexible and scalable ground infrastructure deployments that can quickly adapt to changing needs. Ku-band BUCs are well suited for this type of deployment model.
