Future Market Insights
Emergency beacon transmitters witness high demand from navy and air force which install these equipment in ships and aircrafts to enable security and safety from unforeseen accidents such as equipment malfunction, capsizing and fire. The emergency beacon transmitter are used for sending distress signals. These signals are detected by Low Earth Orbit Search and Rescue (LEOSAR) and Geostationary Search and Rescue (GEOSAR) satellites and sent to associated ground receiving stations.
Emergency Beacon Transmitter Market: Drivers and Restraints
The market is experiencing high demand due to the availability of devices equipped with advanced technologies. Earlier, devices are used for distress signals were not reliable as they could not provide accurate information about the location. However, new 406 MHz emergency beacon transmitter is equipped with a global position system (GPS) receiver which can provide exact location from where the distress signals have been received. This has resulted in the increase in demand of emergency beacon transmitters.
However, high installation and maintenance cost of the emergency beacon transmitter is hindering the market growth. Further, licensing and regulation is also one of the major challenges for the vendors. An emergency beacon transmitter vendor needs to register its emergency beacon. Failure to register it or notify the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) about any beacon ownership change could lead to penalties by the Federal Communications Commission.
A technological trend which has been noticed in the market is emergency beacon transmitter watches. These are suitable for those who travel in remote and risky places. The watch comes with a dual-channel emergency satellite transmitter which gets activated by twisting and pulling the watch knob. The watch holds a Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) category 2 beacon micro-transmitter and is priced between US$ 17,000 and US$ 18,000.
