Research and Markets: Global Fixed Satellite Service Market 2011-2015: The Requirement of High CAPEX Investment to Pose a Challenge to the Growth of Market

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/hzjvx7/global_fixed) has announced the addition of the "Global Fixed Satellite Service Market 2011-2015" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) market to grow at a CAGR of 5.1 percent over the period 2011-2015. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing demand for TV and video transponders. The Global FSS market has also been witnessing the increasing offerings of value-enhanced services by FSS operators.

Key vendors dominating this space include Intelsat Ltd., SES S.A., Eutelsat Communications S.A., Telesat Holdings Inc.

Other vendors mentioned in the report are Sky Perfect Jsat Holdings, Shin Satellite Plc., Space Communication Corp., Star One S.A., Loral Skynet Corp., and Arab Satellite Communications Organization.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Telecom team said: ''Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) operators are adopting business models that enable them to offer value-enhanced services. Most operators provide value-enhanced services such as uplink services, teleports, private networks (VSATs), and data multicasting. FSS operators are either developing partnerships with, or purchasing, ground stations around the globe for offering value-enhanced services to their customers. Instead of just selling the transponder capacity, FSS operators are selling end-to-end solutions. Furthermore, FSS operators are adopting organizational changes to develop their identity as a customer service-oriented organization. Thus, the provision of value-enhanced services by FSS operators is an emerging trend in the market.''

According to the report, in Western Europe, the demand for data services has been increasing. These factors indicate that there is a huge demand for satellite broadband in the developed economies. Furthermore, there are tremendous time division multiple access (TDMA) VSAT terminals available for enterprise broadband services, and the adoption of VSAT terminals for enterprise services is expected to increase rapidly from 2011-2015. In addition, broadband penetration in emerging economies such as India, China and those in the Middle East, and Africa is very low. However, the demand for broadband services in rural and urban areas in these emerging economies is increasing rapidly. Thus, the increasing demand for broadband services is driving the growth of the Global FSS market.

Further, the report discusses that the high capital expenditure investment in developing, manufacturing, launching, and insuring a satellite is a challenge for the Global FSS market.
