Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/25jn8l/global_mobile) has announced the addition of the "Global Mobile Satellite Services (MSS) Market Report, 2016" report to their offering.
Currently, most countries are increasing their budgets for disaster management purposes. In this regard, mobile satellite services have been very useful in establishing connectivity during national emergencies such as natural disasters. For instance, during the 2010 earthquake disaster in Haiti and the 2011 floods in Australia and Pakistan, several mobile satellite service terminals were deployed to ensure proper communication to facilitate disaster management. Hence, an increasing number of organizations such as the UN, non-governmental organizations, and other disaster management organizations are increasingly adopting mobile satellite services. Thus, the increasing demand for mobile satellite services in emergency situations is an emerging trend in the Global Mobile Satellite Service market.
According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the increasing demand for broadband mobile satellite services. Global mobile satellite service providers are witnessing a significant revenue increase from their data services and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. Operators are now focusing on offering broadband services to meet the increasing demand for data and IP-based services. Broadband services are relatively less expensive; hence, customers prefer to use services such as e-mail and VoIP through broadband.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the requirement for high initial investments for the development, launch, and insurance of satellites. This acts as a barrier for the entry of new players into the market. In addition, the return on investment is prolonged.
The key vendors dominating this space include:
- Globalstar Inc.
