Global Satellite Broadband Communication in Public Safety Market 2016-2020
About Satellite Broadband
Satellite broadband plays an important role in meeting public safety needs. Satellite communication in the public safety domain involves the adoption of next-generation satellite communication technology in mission-critical field applications, equipping people with real-time data, video, voice, or other forms of tactical communication, and rich media services. Satellite communication, can help ambulance crews to send the location of an injured person with updated conditions to doctors at a hospital for an early accommodation arrangement and diagnosis and immediate treatment. Police officers responding to an incident can access video and information about the scene they are about to walk into. Fire personnel can obtain information on a real-time basis about the environment they are working on. They can also view maps, images of the buildings, and other information to enable them to handle crisis situations more efficiently.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global satellite broadband communication in public safety market to grow at a CAGR of 9.03% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report

The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Satellite Broadband Communication in Public Safety Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global satellite broadband communication in public safety market: Gilat Satellite Networks, Harris CapRock Communications, Hughes Network Systems, Inmarsat, Iridium Communications, and VT iDirect.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Cambium Networks, EchoStar, Ligado Networks, Thrane and Thrane, Globalstar, Intelsat General, Singtel, Telstra, Thuraya, and ViaSat.
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 the 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, rising demand for mobility will be a key driver for market growth. The public safety services require mobility of devices. In addition, they require high-speed bandwidth for voice and data transfer on the move. The fixed satellite services cannot provide mobility. On the other hand, the legacy wireless telecom networks such as 2G and Edge cannot fulfill the requirement for high-speed bandwidth for voice and data transmission. In addition, since public security organizations deal with time-bound situations or situations that require immediate attention, they need real-time communication among the emergency response team members.
Further, the report states that new products and service capabilities are delivered by satellite communication service players into the market at a rapid pace with the convergence of the satellite and terrestrial mobile sectors. This strategy has been followed to accommodate the higher bandwidth requirements and mobility demands of satellite customers. The trend of bring your own device (BYOD) has been observed in satellite communication market as well. New consumer-oriented form factors such as SatSleeve has enabled satellite service users to experience seamless global connectivity with high convenience. Thuraya has identified and addressed the global BYOD trend by introducing Thuraya SatSleeve. Increased adoption of enhanced WLAN infrastructure by enterprises for high-bandwidth communications in sectors such as government and education, for instance, is posing a challenge to the market.
