Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) Market in North America 2015-2019
An FSS is a type of satellite service that uses geosynchronous satellites for broadcasting purposes, such as TV and radio, telecommunications, and satellite communication. The major end-users of FSS are government, military organizations, small and large enterprises, and others. This satellite service helps provide a valuable source of information to national intelligence and security organizations to reduce crime and terrorism. The service is categorized into two major types: wholesale service and managed service. The satellites used for FSS have a low power output, and they require larger dish-style antennas for reception. FSS works on three bands: C-band, Ku-band, and Ka-band.
Technavio's analysts forecast the FSS market in North America to grow at a CAGR of 0.76% over the period 2014-2019.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Fixed Satellite Service Market in North America 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Fixed Satellite Service Market in North America: Eutelsat Communications, Intelsat, SES, Space-Communications and Telesat Holdings
The other prominent vendors are: ABS and Hughes network Systems (EchoStar Satellite Services)
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Owing to government regulations and market consolidation, the capacity of C-band and Ku-band is expected to decline during the forecast period. Hence, transponder utilization of existing satellites will increase significantly. The rate of transponder utilization has also been increasing because of regulations for desirable orbital slots management. In addition, fixed satellite service operators are maximizing the value of their most valuable, assigned orbital slots by co-locating multiple satellites in the same slot. Hence, the increasing utilization rate of transponders is indirectly contributing to the growth of the market over the next few years.”
According to the report, the demand for satellite broadband services is increasing significantly in the US. Broadband providers are seeing a surge in demand for broadband services in the urban as well as rural population. In 2014, WildBlue Communications, a company that provides high-speed data service in rural areas in the US, saw strong demand for broadband services from more than 600 retailers in rural areas. Satellite providers such as HughesNet and ViaSat are also offering high downloading and uploading speed of 10 to 15 Mbps and 1 to 3 Mbps, respectively.
Further, the report states that the high capital expenditure involved in developing, manufacturing, launching, and insuring a satellite can deter the growth of the market over the next few years.
