NEW in this Edition

NSR’s Commercial Satellite Ground Segment, 2nd Edition study includes a range of additional content.

For the first time and not included in any other industry source, the study independently presents shipments and revenues for Set-top Boxes, Modems, Antennas and RF Chains for each vertical. Furthermore, critical trends and technological innovations are analyzed for each element. Thus, equipment vendors, integrators, the financial community and the satellite industry can understand the most promising segments and the key trends shaping the industry.

With the industry going through a profound transformation and key verticals developing at an extraordinary pace, it is more important than ever to know where each competitor stands. This second edition of the report includes modem vendor market share per vertical (Consumer Broadband, Fixed Enterprise VSAT, Cellular Backhaul, Aeronautical Satcom and Maritime).

NSR’s Commercial Satellite Ground Segment, 2nd Edition (CSGS2) is a first of its kind analysis of the market opportunities, technology trends and the impact of ground segment on the overall satellite industry. The report coverage is framed within NSR’s traditional in-depth industry knowledge analyzing all key segments with an unmatched level of detail.

The report combines the wide and well-grounded NSR analysis for each key vertical market in a single report with specific focus on terminals and ground infrastructure. From consumer oriented verticals like Broadband or Satellite TV, to enterprise markets like fixed VSAT, Backhaul, Trunking or Mobility (Land, Maritime and Aero), or ground infrastructure opportunities like Baseband Equipment, SatCom Earth Stations or Earth Observation Ground Segment, the report provides the widest and most comprehensive analysis available of the Commercial Satellite Ground Segment.
