Research specialist Euroconsult, in its latest study, says the market value for video transmission services over satellite, including video distribution services for TV channels and contribution services for permanent and occasional use is expected to reach $27 billion in 2020, up from $15.8 billion in 2010.

“The anticipated revenue growth for video transmission services in the coming years hannels, the launch of new formats and the takeoff of digital TV in emerging regions,” said Pacôme Revillon, CEO of Euroconsult. “Furthermore, demand for increasingly complex video transmission solutions will push service providers to create end-to-end solutions with satellite remaining a key part of the delivery network.”

An estimated 25,000 TV channels were transmitted by satellite at year-end 2010. “While the North American and European markets remain the largest markets, the takeoff of digital TV in emerging regions, such as India, Russia and Brazil, could make those markets the most important growth engines over the next ten years,” says the report.
