Overview of the fixed satellite service (FSS) market

According to the market research analysts at Technavio, the global fixed satellite service (FSS) market is anticipated to grow steadily at a CAGR of nearly 6% over the forecast period. With the increasing number of broadband and DTH subscriptions, the market for fixed satellite service is anticipated to have a positive outlook in the coming years. The number of broadband subscribers in MEA and APAC countries has increased significantly over the last few years, resulting in intense competition for satellite launches among FSS operators. The large subscriber base in countries like India and China, along with the ever-changing regulatory and competitive landscape of the market has led to an augmented demand for FSS solutions.

Most FSS operators these days are adopting new business models that enable them to offer value-enhanced services like uplink services, teleports, private networks through VSATs, and data multicasting to their customers. The majority of operators either enter into partnerships or purchase ground stations across the globe to offer these services. Moreover, FSS operators are selling end-to-end solutions instead of transponder capacity and can manage IP-based services such as IP trunking and broadband. This trend is gaining significant traction in the market, which is expected to spur the growth prospects of this market over the next four years.
