A low-noise blockdown converter (LNB) is a perilous device mounted at the central point of the dish antenna. It is used mostly for satellite communication to primarily strengthen the minor signals from the satellite. The  low-noise  block  downconverter is a part  of  the receiver  system,  that  is  used  for  wireless  communications service or the satellite  communication. It is the device placed in front  of  a  satellite dish to  receive  low-level  microwave signals  from  the  satellite,  strengthening  the signals,  altering  the signal to a lower frequency band, and directing down the cable to  the  indoor  receiver. The low-noise block downconverter (LNB) is a combination of frequency mixer, low-noise amplifier, intermediate frequency (IF) amplifier, and local oscillator. It serves as the radio frequency front end of the satellite receiver that helps in getting the signal from the satellite by the dish, strengthening it and down converting the block of frequencies to a lower block of intermediary frequencies. This down conversion enables the signal to transmit to the indoor satellite TV receiver by means of a relatively low-cost coaxial cable. The low-noise blockdown converter gets its power from the set-top box or receiver, by using the similar coaxial cable which transmits signals from the LNB to the receiver.

The primary function of low-noise block downconverter is to offer signal reception for communication of the satellites systems in sites across the globe.  Redundant configurations deliver maximum optimization for satellite signal reception anywhere. This is anticipated to boost the demand for low-noise downconverter during the forecast period. In addition, the low-noise block downconverter produces a flat frequency response, minimalize additional phase noise, and provides high performance in a small ruggedized bundle. This is also one of the key factors that is anticipated to drive the market during the forecast period.

The global low-noise block downconverter market can be segmented based on band type, terminal type, enterprise size, end-use, and geography. Based on band type, the low-noise block downconverter market can be classified into Ka band LNBs, Ku band LNBs, C band LNBs, and X band LNBs. On the basis of terminal type, the low-noise block downconverter market can be classified into portable, fixed, drive away terminal, maritime terminals, and fly away terminal. Based on enterprise size, the global low-noise block downconverter market can be classified into small and medium enterprises and large enterprises. In terms of end-use, the low-noise block downconverter market can be segmented into oil and gas; aerospace and defense; maritime; energy and utilities; IT and telecom; banking, financial services and insurance; retail; healthcare; and others.

Based on geography, the global low-noise block downconverter market can be segmented into North America, South America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. The low-noise block downconverter market in North America is anticipated to expand at a substantial rate during the forecast period. This is attributed to high emphasis on technological growth and rising usage of low-noise block downconverter in aerospace and defense in the region. Asia Pacific is expected to be a lucrative market due to the growing focus on rural telecommunications which is expected to be a key factor in the future growth of the low-noise block downconverter market in the region. This is a particularly strong driver in this region, as many rural and suburban communities in the emerging countries of the region are still underserved by terrestrial communication infrastructure.

Key players operating in the global low-noise block downconverter market are focused on providing solutions as per requirements, such as implementation of different technologies, and upgrade and expansion of existing systems. The global low-noise block downconverter market is characterized by presence of several key players including Norsat International Inc., Orbital Research, Satcom Resources, Chaparral Communications, Inc. and Raditek Inc.
