The Asia Video Industry Association to Present 2019 Edition of the Satellite Industry Forum 

Over the past year, a profound change in the satellite industry has been witnessed by all — evolving consumption habits have led to fast-paced innovation coming from manufacturers and operators alike.

The increase in use of smallsats for LEO, the rising demand for NGSO launch services, new use cases for 5G as well as satellite broadcasting and video streaming are some of the most important developments infusing the industry.

Meanwhile, growth fundamentals for satellite will remain strong in the APAC region for the coming 12 months and, in the mid-term, developments point to sustained growth in the medium-term.  As 2019 progresses, it will be of interest for many to find out what trends the satellite industry will see play out this year, as well as what the key drivers of growth will be.
