NSR Report Deliverables

NSR delivers clarity and critical market insight.

NSR’s Flat Panel Satellite Antennas, 3rd Edition (FPA3) report is the industry’s leading source for data & analysis on this groundbreaking area for satcom development.    Flat Panel Antennas (FPAs) have been on the brink of widespread commercial success for years, due to the promise they hold for replacing traditional parabolic VSAT antennas in many satellite markets. Smaller, lighter form factors, combined with innovative technologies and the potential of increased capability, are the main selling points for FPAs.  However, heritage systems, higher prices, and low technological development remain as the main obstacles for FPA growth. Despite these challenges, recent collaboration in the satellite value chain, combined with increasing interest and investment in FPA technology, make 2018 the year FPAs are expected to hit the market en masse.

NSR’s FPA3 report is structured into 2 parts – Broadband Mobility and Fixed Applications. Mobility sections are further broken down into three vertical markets – Aeronautical, Maritime, and Land-mobile, whereas the Fixed Application segment consists of three vertical markets – Broadband, Backhaul and Satellite VideoNSR's 3rd edition of this report forecasts the growth of FPA in-service units, shipped units, and equipment revenues across five regions and by frequency band/s of operation. NSR’s forecasts are scenario-based, offering the reader with different paths this market can take, with drivers and restraints clearly explained for the same.

Detailed state-of-the-market analysis for companies developing or selling FPAs are presented. Deals between satellite operators or service providers with antenna manufacturing companies are also reviewed, with an assessment of the technology and market forces coming into play. Addressable market sizing of each industry vertical is provided, with insights on the expected market penetration rate of FPAs, accounting for the drivers and restraints of building and deploying them.

Apart from being the only market report on this industry, NSR’s leadership in HTS markets is continued in this report, as it touches almost every aspect of the satellite industry research conducted by NSR.

Report Segmentation

NSR’s Flat Panel Satellite Antenna, 3rd Edition report is divided into 3 market segments – Broadband Mobility, Narrowband Mobility, and Fixed Applications, which are further segmentation into sub-verticals that are forecasted by region, and by frequency band.
