Analysis of the Global Satellite Backhaul Market

2G and 3G cellular services continue to drive global cellular expansion due to the high quality of services for voice capabilities (2G) and high-bandwidth data capabilities (3G). However, many remote or difficult to cover locations around the world remain unconnected. This is due to the expense associated with expanding traditional backhaul technologies (fiber and microwave) over vast distances and adverse geological conditions.

Mountainous regions, vast landscapes without infrastructure, water bodies, and densely forested barriers contribute to the difficulty of expanding fiber technology or achieving line of sight (LOS) with minimal hops for microwave technology. As a result, satellite technology (primarily Ku- and Ka-band) is currently favored by cellular operators as the technology of choice for quickly and efficiently connecting remote locations.

Other vertical markets and use-cases also have a significant impact on the growing need for satellite backhaul to enable cellular connectivity. The growing mobile workforce and the need to always remain connected are directly influencing the need to expand cellular networks to previously unconnected locations.

Oil and gas drilling and exploration, as well as other in-the-field jobs continue to have a similar effect on the industry. These solutions often include mobile cellular towers that can be transported from one site to another to quickly enable connectivity in any location around the world.

About this report

The research covers VSAT satellite technology that is used as backhaul for cellular 2G, 3G, and 4G technologies. Satellite technology is currently being used globally to backhaul cellular services in locations that have sub-par landline infrastructure and geographical barriers (distance or harsh terrain), in addition to being used as a backup for other technologies (due to natural or man-made disasters). The research includes market base year and forecast data, company market share, and regional breakouts for North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and ROW. The base year is 2014, with forecasts up to 2020.
