Global Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) Market 2015-2019
About fixed satellite service
A fixed satellite service or FSS uses geosynchronous satellites for broadcasting purposes such as TV and radio, telecommunications, and satellite communication that are used by government, military organizations, small and large enterprises, and other end-users. FSS provides valuable source information to national intelligence and security organizations to fight crime and terrorism.
The satellites used for FSS generally have a low power output and require large dish-style antennas for reception. They have less power than direct broadcasting satellites. An FSS works on three bands: C-band, Ku-band, and Ka-band.
Currently, the Ka-band is used predominantly in North America to serve the growing needs of the government, media, and network users. It provides high bandwidth and frequency compared to the other bands.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global fixed satellite service market to grow at a CAGR of 5.15% during 2014-2019.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Fixed Satellite Service Market 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Fixed Satellite Service Market: Embratel's Star One, Eutelsat Communications, Intelsat, SES, SKY Perfect JSAT Holdings, Space-Communications, Telesat Holdings and Thaicom Public Company
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ABS, APT Satellite Holdings, Arabsat, AsiaSat, Avanti Communications Group, China Satellite Communications (ChinaSatcom), EchoStar Satellite Services, Hispasat, Indian Space Research Organization, Intersputnik, JSC Gazprom Space Systems, MEASAT Global, Nilesat, Portugal Telecom (PT Telkom), Russia Satellite Communication, SingTel Optus and Telenor Satellite Broadcasting
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “With increased demand for high-quality video and voice services, satellite TV providers are also launching their own satellites or forging partnerships with other satellite providers. In North America, Bell TV and DirecTV are the major satellite TV providers. Bell TV broadcasts with the help of four geostationary satellites named Nimiq 1, Nimiq 2, Nimiq 3, and Nimiq 6, which is owned by Telesat. DirecTV's satellite fleet consists of 14 active satellites. These satellites significantly increase HD capacity in the US and Canada. In May 2015, the company launched the DIRECTV-15 that will provide backup to DirecTV's existing satellite fleet and also increase 4K UltraHD capacity in North America.”
According to the report, the demand for fixed satellite service transponders has been increasing because of the adoption of HDTV among developed as well as developing countries. In addition, there is more demand for 3D channels that have a 40-50% higher bandwidth requirement compared to HDTV channels.
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.
