analysts forecast the global
FSS market to grow at a CAGR of close to 6% during the
forecast period, according to their latest report.
The research study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of
the global FSS
market for 2016-2020. Based on service category, the market
is segmented into wholesale services and managed services, with the
former dominating the market.
The number of households having high-definition television (HDTV) and
UltraHDTV is expected to increase rapidly and reach around 1 billion
during the forecast period. Due to this increased adoption of HDTV and
UltraHDTV, the requirement for transponders will increase, which will
create scope for market growth.

Technavio analysts highlight the following three factors that are
contributing to the growth of the global FSS market:
Increasing demand for satellite TV and video transponders
The usage of transponders in the television industry is increasing
rapidly. Content providers and broadcasters have employed over 60% of
the fixed satellite transponders. However, the demand for FSS
transponders has been increasing due to the adoption of HDTV in
developed as well as developing countries. The increasing demand for
satellite transponders is primarily boosted by the growing demand for
HTS that uses many small spot beams distributed across a particular
service area to connect the satellite with small aperture earth stations
at high data rates.
In addition, the popularity of satellite TV, mostly in developing
countries, is increasig the demand for high bandwidth-consuming 3D
channels; satellite TV requires 40%-50% higher capacity compared with
HDTV channel. The number of HDTV channels is increasing rapidly.
Increasing broadband and DTH subscriptions
"The increase in the number of broadband subscribers in MEA and
APAC provide growth opportunities for the FSS Market. This has resulted
in intense competition with new satellite launches by existing FSS
operators, while many new satellite operators are expecting their first
satellite to be launched in the next few years. The large subscriber
base in countries such as China and India and the ever changing
regulatory and competitive landscape of the market has increased the
demand for FSS solutions in APAC," says Abhishek Sharma, a lead
analyst at Technavio for research on M2M
and connected devices.
In the global consumer sector, the satellite market generated a revenue
more than USD 100 billion; the global satellite broadband was valued at
around USD 2 billion in 2014. Of about 2.5 million global subscribers,
65% of satellite broadband subscribers were from the US. As the
subscribers are gaining confidence on the quality of service of
satellite broadband despite the high data rates, operators, service
providers, and space agencies like Eutelsat Tooway, HughesNet, Inmarsat
Global Xpress, O3B, and ViaSat Exede are entering the satellite
broadband market due to its huge growth opportunities.
Rise in demand for telecom/mobile backhaul
The FSS market is experiencing a significant growth from telecom and
mobile backhaul. Mobile backhaul ensures the transportation of data and
voice distributed network sites to the network core. Earlier, mobile
operators did not entirely embrace satellite technology for backhaul,
but with advances in satellite technology, they are now more flexible in
"The need for telecom backhaul has increased with the introduction
of 3G and 4G networks, which is expected to support more data traffic by
2020. The high capacity 3G and 4G networks need more backhaul capacity,"
In recent years, there has been a strong demand for telecom/mobile
backhauling through satellite across southeast Asia. The anticipated
growth will be boosted by HTS. With the increased presence of HTS, the
demand for satellite backhaul will rise during the forecast period.
