Emergency beacon transmitters are tracking devices that assist in the detection and location of boats, aircraft, and people in distress. When the transmitter is activated, the beacon emits a distress signal, and simultaneously the location of such signals is detected by non-geostationary satellites. This information acquired is passed on to the search & rescue authorities to locate survivors. In situations pertaining to transferring of weapons, arms, and ammunitions, if any emergency situation arises, emergency beacon transmitters help military aircraft send signals about its exact location to the earth station; this information is further passed on to the search and rescue teams for necessary action.
The emergency beacons transmitter market has been experiencing massive growth in the recent years due to rise in demand for tracking and detecting threats enabling high security. Hence, availability of highly reliable products in the emergency beacon transmitter market is one of the key factors driving the growth of the emergency beacon transmitter market. Moreover, technological advancements with improved operation efficiency, portability and durability and rising focus of manufactures on reducing operational costs is further expected to fuel the growth of emergency beacons transmitter market during the forecast period. However, high installation and maintenance cost and visibility range of the emergency beacons transmitter is hindering the market growth. Increasing demand for transmitters, offering accurate information, maximize search, provide real-time emergency tracking and response through the use of a network of satellites known as Cospas-Sarsat system is expected to create huge opportunities for the companies operating in emergency beacons transmitter market.
