Robust growth in satellite broadcasting business forecast

May 17, 2011

Speaking at a Newtec-hosted seminar in Miami, Susan Irwin, President of Euroconsult USA, has predicted robust growth in emerging markets for satellite broadcasting in the next decade.

“By 2019 we expect an additional 10,000 television channels will be delivered via satellite, largely thanks to growth in HD and additional DTH platforms,” said Irwin during her presentation. “Digital TV will continue to grow and there will be a need for affordable offerings and low cost business models, especially in emerging markets where there is significant growth potential,” Irwin concluded.

The company hosted the two-day event to share best practices and to help in efforts to develop technologies and products that make a real difference in the way broadcasters, telcos, ISPs and others use satellite communications.
