Past News Releases


One of the emerging trends in this market is the increase in the utilization rate of transponders. Because of government regulations and market consolidation, the capacity of C-band and Ku-band is expected to decline by 3 percent during the forecast period. Hence, the transponder utilization of the existing satellites will increase significantly.

According to the “Global Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) Market 2014-2018” report, one of the major growth drivers in the market is the increased demand for TV and video transponders. The demand for FSS transponders has been increasing as a result of the high adoption of HDTV because HD channels require four-five times more capacity than a standard definition channel.

A fixed satellite service (FSS) is a satellite service that uses geosynchronous satellites for broadcasting purposes such as TV and radio, telecommunications, and satellite communication used by government and military organizations. An FSS offers services under two major category: wholesale services and managed services. The satellites used for FSS generally have a low power output. In addition, they require larger dish-style antennas for reception. Currently, there are almost 432 active geosynchronous satellites that are providing services across the globe.

The Global Fixed Satellite Service market can be classified into two major segments based on service category: Managed Services and Wholesale Services. The Global Wholesale FSS market can be classified into five segments: TV Channel Broadcast, Telecom Backhaul, Broadband Services, Content and Video Distribution, and Military Satellite Communication. The study covers 325 satellites that offer FSS through their transponders. In addition, the report covers almost 96 new satellites that are expected to be launched by several FSS operators during the period 2014-2018.

The Global Fixed Satellite Service Market 2014-2018 has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the APAC, Western Europe, the Middle East and Africa, North America, Latin America, and Eastern Europe and Russia; it also covers the Global Fixed Satellite Service market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years.
