Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Satellite M2M Connections and Services Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global satellite M2M connections and services market: Globalstar, Iridium Communications, Kore, ORBCOMM, and Rogers Communications.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Applied Satellite Technology, Digi International, Gemalto, Hughes Network System, Nupoint Systems, Oracle, Quake Global, Sprint, Teliasonera, and Telit.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of the key trends for market growth will be increased use of satellite M2M for event-based SCADA applications. With the growing popularity of satellite M2M devices for asset tracking, remote monitoring, and controlling, the demand for satellite M2M for event-based SCADA applications has increased significantly. In remote areas, the availability of cellular service is limited, and satellite broadband is an expensive solution for SCADA applications. In these areas, SCADA system integrators rely on satellite M2M for its reduced power consumption and minimum capital investment. While the implementation of satellite M2M for SCADA monitoring is a time-consuming process, it will likely pay off in the long term. ORBCOMM, which provides asset monitoring and messaging services and devices, is used by system integrators to monitor and control oil and gas flow meters and water meters.”

According to the report, increased demand for mobility will be a key driver for market growth. Demand for connectivity is growing rapidly, and in turn, is creating an added pressure on M2M satellite service operators to facilitate a capable satellite network infrastructure. The aviation sector is heavily depending on Satcom connectivity for automated flight operations and on-board Wi-Fi or mobile usage to cater to increasing customer demand. Hence, users have been provided robust communications-on-the-move solutions through Satcom, which gives access to a wide variety of applications and services with high efficiency. Increased installation and deployment of satellite terminals such as IP Voyager on any vehicle with autonomous tracking antenna that tracks satellite signal during movement is helping M2M satellite market to grow strongly. This satellite terminal can be effectively operated in adverse environments to attain innovative solutions with a high operational efficiency that provides versatile and reliable performance.

Further, the report states that a satellite launch involves risks such as failure during the launch stage. Therefore, organizations and companies are required to ensure the whole project covering the entire period until the launch, which adds significantly to overall costs. These factors could deter vendors with inadequate resources from foraying into the market. This factor is posing a severe challenge for existing players and also for new market entrants to obtain an estimated return on investment.
