NSR Report Deliverables

NSR delivers clarity and critical market insight.

Expanding upon the previous edition, NSR’s Polar Satellite Markets, 2nd Edition takes an in-depth look at the opportunities that new innovations in the industry offer, such as LEO-HTS constellations, putting Arctic and Antarctic connectivity back on the map.

This industry benchmark report provides readers with the most comprehensive picture of the Polar markets to date. With more segmentations than ever before, NSR’s Polar Satellite Markets, 2nd Edition includes a new split of supply and demand into Arctic and Antarctic regions, as well as data segmented by application, vertical and frequency band.

While there are many technical and geographical challenges for satellite operators before dedicating new capacity to these regions, new access technologies in the medium term will provide enhanced opportunities to serve a broad range of customers in the Arctic, as well as Antarctic regions.

Polar Satellite Markets, 2nd Edition offers deep insight for decision makers, service providers, equipment manufacturers and vendors to create long-term business strategies, and anticipate future market developments with higher risk investment, but also the potential for sizable rewards.

This report answers key questions concerning Polar markets:

  • How will usage demand shift over time across 12 applications?
  • Where is the greatest level of latent demand in connectivity, and what will result when additional supply becomes available?
  • What is the best way to serve demand coming from the Antarctic?
  • How would potential satellite constellations affect the current and future supply dynamic in the Arctic?
  • How underserved are the broadband markets in far north regions?
  • What are the revenue prospects for each vertical and application?

 

The study is a valuable resource that:

  • Analyzes what impact upcoming LEO-HTS constellations will have on Polar regions
  • Provides insights as to the current and future demand opportunities that lie in the Arctic and Antarctic
  • Identifies the impact that growing terrestrial networks will have on satellite demand

Key assessments undertaken include:

  • Metrics that show possible migration and evolution of the solution mix
  • Analysis of the extent of pricing premiums that can be offered in Polar regions
  • Analysis of operators with present supply in the Arctic
