Global Very Small Aperture Terminal Market 2016-2020

About VSAT Terminals

VSAT terminals are communication terminals that transmit and receive text, audio, and video data using satellite broadband Internet services. These terminals operate geostationary satellites on Ku, Ka, and C bands. These terminals are 1.2-2.4 meters in diameter. A VSAT network comprises a main station or hub and other sites located in remote places, which communicate with the geostationary satellite. These networks provide wireless broadband connectivity in remote and underserved areas that are not covered by wireline networks. They also provide value-added services such as local area network (LAN) services, internet access, and data transmission. There are three types of VSAT transmissions: time division multiple access (TDMA), demand assigned multiple access (DAMA), and single channel per carrier (SCPC)/ multiple channels per carrier (MCPC).

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global very small aperture terminal (VSAT) market to grow at a CAGR of 9.52% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global very small aperture terminal (VSAT) market: Gilat Satellite Networks, Harris CapRock, Hughes Network Systems, Inmarsat, KVH Industries, ViaSat, and VT iDirect.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Cambium Networks, Comtech Telecommunications, Emerging Markets Communications, Gigasat, GomSpace, Imtech Marine, Mitsubishi Electric, ND Satcom, Newtec, Norsat International, OmniAccess, Polarsat, SageNet, SkyCasters, SpaceQuest, SpeedCast, Tatanet Services, Telespazi, and Vizada.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Increased use of satellite services for cross-vertical applications will be a key trend for market growth. VSAT plays a vital role in enabling communication for emerging technology. With the changing technology and growing demand for world-class health facilities, the need of the hour is telemedicine. Telemedicine is the exchange of medical information from one site to another via electronic communications to improve a patient’s health status. It includes a variety of applications and services using two-way communication via video, email, and other forms.”

According to the report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be the government initiatives for effective communication services. Governments across the globe are taking initiatives to increase the overall penetration of the internet and voice-based services. Governments of various countries are also mandating cellular operators to incorporate the universal service obligation, which enables them to take advantage of the low cost and faster rollout of VSAT services, thereby empowering rural customers to use VSAT communications.

Further, the report states that attenuation from rain has been a major challenge for many satellite links including the HTS. However, such satellites have developed sufficient rain fade margins to provide a good quality link. The transponders used in HTS can be of Ku and Ka band. On an average, a typical HTS satellite should have many ultra-wideband transponders distributed along the beams with a bandwidth of 100Mhz. The HTS Ku-band and HTS Ka-band have their own advantages like greater capacity than conventional Ku and C-band satellites and are best suited to certain applications like high-speed internet.
