This market analysis recognizes vendors such as Globalstar, Inmarsat, Iridium Communications, Singtel, and Telstra as the key players in the global mobile satellite services market. This report also presents segmentations based on platforms (aviation, land, maritime, and others), services (data and voice), application (M2M, broadband, handheld, and narrowband), and geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global mobile satellite services market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global mobile satellite services market will grow steadily and post a CAGR of almost 8% by 2020. The increasing demand for satellite communication during emergency situations will be one of the primary factors contributing to the growth of the mobile satellite services market. NGOs and humanitarian organizations across the globe depend on mobile satellite services (MSS) for its robustness and expansive coverage as this technology facilitates a timely and efficient response. Furthermore, since these terminals can be effortlessly deployed anywhere, it will provide global coverage and an active communication channel to end-users to help in relief operations during natural disasters and emergency situations. As a result, many vendors have started collaborating with each other to deliver preferential airtime rates and technical training support to enhance satellite service.

During 2015, the Americas dominated the market by accounting for approximately 40% of the total market share. Increasing awareness and the growing preference for satellite technologies across the government and aeronautical sectors will result in the strong growth of the market in the Americas. Additionally, the ability of satellite communication to help in storm and hurricane disaster management, volcano monitoring, vegetation identification, and historical monument inspection will also lead to its increased demand during the estimated period. Furthermore, the participation of Latin American countries, such as Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela, in the development in satellite technologies will also help in the evolution of the market.

Additionally, many vendors across the world deploy their solution independently or with the help of channel partners to consolidate their market position. To survive in this market, businesses have to follow emerging technologies that could have an impact on their product lines.
