2014-03-26 08:23:01 - Global Fixed Satellite Service Market 2012-2016 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
The Global Fixed Satellite Service market is to grow at a CAGR of 5.44 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing demand for TV and video transponders. The Global Fixed Satellite Service market has also been witnessing the increasing number of value-enhanced services offered by FSS operators. However, the requirement for high CAPEX investment could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
An increase in the utilization rate of transponders is one of the major trends being witnessed in the market in recent years. Due to government regulations and market consolidation, the capacity of the C-band and Ku-band is expected to decline by 3 percent during the forecast
period. Hence, the transponder utilization of existing satellites will increase significantly. Similarly, the rate of transponder utilization has been increasing because of proper regulations for the management of desirable orbital slots. Furthermore, FSS operators are maximizing the value of their most precious, assigned, orbital slots by co-locating multiple satellites in the same slot. Hence, the increasing utilization rate of transponders is indirectly contributing to the growth of the market over the next few years.
One of the major drivers in this market is increasing demand for TV and video transponders. There are more than 30,500 TV channels worldwide at present; this number is expected is to grow at a CAGR of 45 percent during the forecast period. Similarly, the number of HDTV channels will increase at a rate of 20 percent during the forecast period. There will therefore be a huge requirement for FSS transponders for TV broadcasting, video broadcasting, and content provision over the next few years.
One of the major challenges in this market is the requirement for high capital investment. Currently, the cost for the design, launch, and insurance of a satellite is more than US$200 million. Further, the break-even period for such investment is more than 10 years.
