NSR’s Broadband Satellite Markets 12th Edition report projects that the entire broadband satellite market’s installed base will increase by just over 5 million by 2022 and generate US$9.9 billion in revenues.

87% of this growth will come from new subscribers to satellite broadband access services with the North American, Western European and Latin American markets leading the way.

“It appears that 2013 and 2014 are going to be an inflection point in the satellite broadband Internet access market,” Christopher Baugh, NSR President.

NSR lists a number of key trends:

  • Satellite Broadband Report NSRWith the full entry into service of the Viasat-1 and EchoStar-XVII satellites, North America could score a record gain in broadband access subscribers.
  • The Australian NBN Interim Satellite Service is projected to reach its subscriber cap at least a year sooner than previously anticipated.
  • A revamped Tooway management team and new HTS capacity for SES will lead to better subscriber growth in Western Europe.
  • Latin America saw the launch of its first HTS provisioned broadband access services in late 2013.
  • The entry into service of O3b Networks’ new MEO-HTS constellation, to be especially beneficial for the satellite trunking and backhaul markets.
  • NSR also anticipates the enterprise VSAT networking market will remain dynamic in the coming years helped too by the availability of new HTS capacity

NSR maintains its view that, on a net-net basis, the new HTS-provisioned VSAT services will do more to grow the overall enterprise VSAT market than to cannibalize existing FSS services.
