NSR's SCADA/M2M Via Satellite ...Ye’ll Take The Narrowband + I’ll Take The High Band + A New Format (Analysis | Reports)

[SatNews] The market is currently dominated by narrowband L-band systems.... Ku-band and HTS gained inroads in the Transportation and Cargo markets and Green Energy and Construction.

Released tomorrow NSR's SCADA/M2M via Satellite, 4th Edition finds a steady market for narrowband systems despite the industry’s seeming shift into higher bandwidth solutions, specifically High Throughput Satellites (HTS). In 2012, revenues stood at $1.1 billion with narrowband systems accounting for 87 percent of the global total.

By 2022, the market is expected to reach $2.0 billion with narrowband systems improving slightly, accounting for 88 percent of the revenue base.

While key verticals including the Military, Transportation and Cargo drive the market; the Energy-related verticals such as Oil & Gas, Utilities and the Mining play a strong role in the steady narrowband growth due to their dependency on narrowband solutions to run mission-critical applications.

Given high demand for narrowband applications, NSR does not foresee a game change in the solution mix for SCADA/M2M over the long term. “Higher bandwidth Ku-band and HTS systems will have specialized roles to play in the marketplace such as remote video surveillance, but the overarching solution will likely continue to predominantly be narrowband systems,” according to the study’s author Jose Del Rosario, Senior Analyst for NSR.

“The market is currently dominated by narrowband L-band systems. Higher bandwidth Ku-band and HTS have gained inroads in the Transportation and Cargo markets and in new verticals such as Green Energy and Construction,” notes Del Rosario. “However, broadband requirements are likely to be narrowly focused, leading to a healthy but relatively small niche in the overall SCADA/M2M market landscape.”
