Global FM Broadcast Transmitter Market 2017-2021

About FM Broadcast Transmitter

A frequency modulation (FM) broadcast transmitter is an FM radio transmitter that broadcasts the signal from an audio device over a standard FM radio. An FM broadcast transmitter consists of low-power and high-power transmitters. It is used in fixed locations such as radio base stations. The FM broadcast transmitter market is growing at a slow pace because of the availability of alternative mediums for the radio market, such as the online radio market. In spite of the growth of alternative mediums, the radio market has witnessed positive growth.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global FM broadcast transmitter market to grow at a CAGR of 8.05% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global FM Broadcast Transmitter Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global FM broadcast transmitter market: Armstrong Transmitter, Bext, Crown Broadcast, DB Elettronica Telecomunicazioni, Electrolink, Nautel, ROHDE&SCHWARZ, and RVR Elettronica.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is growing demand for solid-state transmitters. Solid-state transmitters are used for modern transmitter designs that are up to a few hundred watts. They are either discrete transistors or ICs. Transistors can be used at all frequencies and power levels.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is use of GaN power ICs in FM broadcast transmitters. In power conversion, to achieve fast switching along with high efficiency, vendors use small, lightweight, and low-cost IC chipsets. Topology, magnetic materials, and power switches are factors that need to be considered to achieve small, lightweight IC chips. The use of soft-switching techniques along with novel gallium nitride (GaN) power ICs and updated high-frequency-optimized transformers and inductors boosts the efficiency and power density in AC and DC converters. Quasi-resonant flyback (QRF) or forward converters are traditional hard-switching topologies used in ICs.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high growth of online radio services. The adoption of portable smart electronic devices, such as smartphones, and use of new audio media, such as live streaming of music, have changed the way individuals consume audio. Physical formats and digital downloads are being replaced by online streaming sites, including Spotify, SoundCloud, Apple Music, Google Play Music, and Pandora. However, they are yet to fully replace the live radio. The rapid adoption of these services is posing a challenge to FM services.
