NSR Report Deliverables

NSR delivers clarity and critical market insight.

NSR’s Flat Panel Satellite Antenna Analysis, 2nd Edition is the only industry report taking a deep dive into the potential revenue opportunities these new technologies offer via smaller and lighter form factors. These new systems - either electronically or mechanically-steered flat panel antennas (FPAs), are revolutionizing the satellite industry and are poised to play a key role in the expansion of the satcom market for years to come.

The interest in Flat panel antennas (FPA) in the satellite industry has not waned, mainly due to the promise they hold for replacing traditional parabolic VSAT antennas in many satellite vertical markets.  This NSR report analyzes FPAs for 2 key markets and 6 applications:

Broadband Mobility

  • Aeronautical
  • Maritime
  • Land-mobile

Fixed Applications

  • Broadband
  • Backhaul
  • Satellite Video

This completely updated report forecasts the global industry growth of in-service units, shipped units, and equipment revenues across nine regions and by frequency bands of operation. NSR’s forecasts are scenario-based, to offer the reader different paths this market can take, with drivers and restraints clearly explained for each.

This detailed state-of-the-market offers an analysis of companies developing or selling FPAs and the deals between satellite operators or service providers to assess the technology and market forces that come into play.  Insights on expected market penetration of FPAs, accounting for the market dynamics for the manufacture and roll-out of these novel products are presented.

Apart from being the only market report on this market, NSR’s leadership in HTS market research is leveraged in this report, to evaluate how FPAs will impact this important component of the satellite industry going forward.

Bottom Line: How does NSR expect the Flat Panel Satellite Antenna market to develop and evolve in the next 10 years for each region and for each market/application?
