The study assesses the installed base of sites or subscribers in seven different regional markets, investigates trends impacting market growth, forecasts service and equipment revenue, and predicts satellite capacity requirements for provisioning each market vertical. Beyond classic C- and Ku-band capacity, NSR led the industry in forecasting use of High Throughput Satellites (HTS) for the different satellite broadband market applications as well as being the first to introduce projections for uptake of MEO-HTS (i.e. O3b Networks) for specific market verticals. The main issues and questions addressed in the study include:
- What are the trends driving or restraining growth in the installed base of sites or subscribers for each market vertical?
- Which market segments and which regions are most likely to benefit from new demand or expansion of existing services?
- Which are under pressure from terrestrial competition?
- Who are the main players in each industry segment, and what have been their key successes in the last year?
- What are the revenues to be generated from service provisioning and customer premises equipment (CPE) sales in each region and market vertical?
- What is the satellite capacity demand for each service in each region, and how is this being provisioned?
NSR’s goal is constantly and enhance our report products. This allows NSR to lead the industry in introducing new market assessments and improvements in how market data is presented and assimilated. For the BBSM 12th Edition, NSR launches its streamlined PowerPoint (PPT) report format that allows report users quickly and easily absorb analysis of all key market trends in the satellite broadband segment. Further, NSR has added additional capacity forecast segmentation to the trunking and backhaul market, notably to capture potential for emerging HTS trunking services.
