NSR Report Deliverables

NSR delivers clarity and critical market insight.

Amidst a strong push towards high-bandwidth capacity, the land-mobile via satellite market is continuing on its path to growth with more satellites launched and new products developed to an ever-widening market for enterprise and consumers.  The long-standing analysis of operators and segments of this established satellite market is what NSR's Land-Mobile via Satellite, 4th Edition (LMvS4) offers to help assess the latest development of both MSS and FSS as well as the new GEO-HTS and non-GEO HTS markets globally.  LMvS4 offers the widest range of analysis and forecasts for in-service units, equipment and service revenues, as well as capacity demand for land-mobile satellite-based mobility.

This new NSR report includes extensive analysis of addressable markets, operator market shares, vertical segment forecasts, pricing, in-service units and revenue.  The report takes an in-depth look at land-mobile services for both voice and data, and offers a complete assessment and forecast of commercial bandwidth and capacity demand for all regions over the next ten years.

The report answers critical questions regarding satellite-based mobility:

  • What key trends are driving the land-mobile via satellite markets?
  • Which new form factor/s will be deployed?
  • Which markets are seeing the most uptake?
  • Will next-generation satellite constellation products change the industry?
  • What are the drivers in usage affecting the market?
  • Which type of service presents the most growth between MSS, FSS and HTS solutions?
  • What will be the impact of GEO and non-GEO HTS satellites on the market?
  • Will there be more demand from the connected land vehicles (cars, railways and trucks)?
  • What is the market share of operators for the MSS market and the traditional satellite handset business?
  • How will voice and data communications services fare across all markets?
  • What are the new and untapped mobility opportunities?
  • How much satellite capacity demand will there be across all regions over the next decade?
  • Bottom Line: How does NSR see the Land-Mobile via Satellite market evolving in the next 10 years for each region and for each market segment?

Land-Mobile via Satellite, 4th Edition offers a completely updated assessment and more than a hundred graphs and thousands of data points to help readers find their way through the intricacies of this market by assessing and evaluating trends in demand by region and globally and by segment.  The report presents the growth drivers and changes in the mobility via satellite market in the coming decade.
