Satellites: A Global Outlook
San Jose, California (PRWEB) February 03, 2012
Follow us on LinkedIn – Technology developments have transformed the global satellite industry over the years from what was earlier confined to serve just the defense and communication applications, to now being capable of even taking entertainment direct to home in the form of digital broadcasting. Satellite technology has become a critical part of our everyday life, enabling communications, entertainment, navigation, and weather forecasting, among others. Having braved several challenges over the years, including the dotcom bust early this millennium, the general trend towards fiber connectivity, the impact of 2007-2009 economic recession, the industry now stands poised to register growth, primarily riding on the ever changing needs in telecommunications, one of its primarily end-use sector and growing consumer demand for satellite-based broadcasting and entertainment services. The industry will be bolstered by growing demand for satellite services against the backdrop of growing need for longer satellite life, increasing number of transponders per satellite, and data compression.
Accounting for a majority share in total revenue, satellite services market is the primary growth driver in the global satellite industry. Strong growth in the number of subscribers to Direct-To-Home/Direct Broadcast Satellite (DTH/DBS) services, as a result of tremendous increase in television viewership in developing markets such as India and China and introduction of advanced services such as HDTV and 3D-TV are fuelling demand for satellite TV services. Growth in consumer broadband satellite on the other hand is being boosted by continued rural broadband rollouts across the globe and growing demand for internet services in Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) businesses. Accounting for two thirds of the overall number of spacecrafts launched, the Government sector will continue to remain one of the most prominent demand drivers for satellites. Realizing the importance of satellite systems in providing geo-information and communication solutions to its agencies, and thereby helping develop infrastructure and contribute to the nation’s socio-economic development, governments across the globe will continue to invest in satellite technologies, thus promising to infuse vigor into the market in the upcoming years.
