Over the five years to 2017, the Satellite TV Providers industry in Canada has struggled to achieve greater subscriber numbers, as consumers migrate toward the streaming services provided by competitors. The industry has benefited from increasing consumer adoption of premium programming packages, which are more expensive than standard programming packages and thus, have slowed falling revenue. Over the five years to 2022, industry revenue is forecast to decline as intense competition is expected to limit any significant revenue growth.
This industry distributes TV programs on a subscription or fee basis through infrastructure consisting of direct broadcast satellites, ground stations and individual home receivers. This industry also includes multipoint distribution system operators that deliver wireless TV programming using ground stations. These operators typically exist in rural areas and have a negligible effect on industry performance. This industry excludes other satellite telecommunications providers.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
