Global Mobile Satellite Services Market 2016-2020
About Mobile Satellite Services
Mobile satellite services (MSS) provide effective communication services beyond the terrestrial range and serves as an ultimate and appropriate channel in emergency situations. MSS include voice, low-speed data, fax, paging, high-speed data, and broadcast and video on demand. MSS systems are categorized based on their orbital altitudes such as geostationary orbit (GEO), medium earth orbit (MEO), and low earth orbit (LEO). MSS find its application in the key market segments such as the aviation sector, maritime sector, and government sector. Distinguishing benefits of MSS are priority access, global connectivity, terrain independence, and access diversity. These unique features and capabilities are used to enhance communications and to augment terrestrial-based wireless systems. Due to congestion of frequency bands, satellite service providers are pressurized to develop advanced and capable infrastructure that can cope up with the increasing customer specific requirements.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global mobile satellite services market to grow at a CAGR of 7.83% during the period 2016-2020.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Mobile Satellite Services Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global mobile satellite services market: Globalstar, Inmarsat, Iridium Communications, Singtel, and Telstra.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Comtech Telecommunications, EchoStar, Harris CapRock Communications, Hughes Network Systems, Intelsat General, Kongsberg, Ligado Networks, Mitsubishi Electric, Raytheon, SpaceQuest, Terrestar Network, Thrane and Thrane, Thuraya, TrustComm, ViaSat, and VT iDirect.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The increasing adoption of satellite-based broadband communication by public health organizations is an emerging trend in the market. This is being experienced in most of the developed nations where the number of healthcare service providers is high and advanced services to customers are the major customer retaining index. In the US and the UK, almost all major governments, as well as public healthcare service providers, use GPS-enabled ambulances to track patient location. In addition, major hospitals in the US and the UK use satellite broadband communication services for remote patient monitoring, telemedicine, and surgical assistance.”
According to the report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be increasing demand for satellite communication in emergency situations. Satellite communication services serve as the backbone of successful relief operations. Worldwide humanitarian organizations are increasingly reliant on MSS for its robustness and expansive coverage as satellite technology facilitate timely and efficient response. Satellite terminals can be easily deployed anywhere independent of the local infrastructure that provides global coverage and an effective communication channel to help in relief operations during natural disasters and emergency situations. For instance, Thuraya collaborated with NetHope in delivering preferential airtime rates and technical training support to enhance satellite service capacity and utilization that enables on-site staff to coordinate effectively to aid operations.
Further, the report states that increasing adoption of hybrid networks such as VSAT is one of the major challenges for the MSS market. VSAT technology has the capability to provide satellite telecommunication services such as VoIP and satellite broadband internet access. These services can be accessed through high-frequency bands such as Ku-band. VSAT offers satellite applications or services for low-cost compared with mobile satellite systems. The design complexity issues are very few in VSAT providing customer-friendly and innovative communication solutions due to its smaller antenna size. VSAT customers are growing rapidly causing a threat to the MSS market, and MSS operators are forced to develop advanced technologies to meet the growing competition.
