COVID-19 continues to impact key maritime segments such as the Passenger market. Service Providers and Satellite Operators continue to ‘find their places’ in a shifting technology value-chain, and Non-GEO HTS launches continue to be the ‘most talked about’ future growth-shifter on the horizon. Overall, a shift towards HTS-based architecture is on the agenda across the value-chain and is providing significant shifts to ‘business as usual’ for everyone except end-users. For customers, more Mbps is their main concern. Digitalization efforts to enhance crew and business processes are their only agenda – all while managing costs in an increasingly challenging macroeconomic environment.

NSR’s Maritime SATCOM Markets, 9th Edition charts a complete picture on how these macro-economic factors influences the uptake of SATCOM services in the maritime sector. The report provides regional, end-user segment and capacity-type forecasts over the next ten years – covering the launch of emerging Non-GEO HTS offerings into the market.

As the passenger market continues to show signs of ‘recovery mode’, merchant maritime builds on the accelerated digitalization efforts over the past 18 months, offshore customers adjust to a continuously changing commodity price, and fishing/leisure markets look to take advantage of new lower cost connectivity options the market remains highly dynamic.

Charting a path to growth over the next 5 to 10 years, NSR’s Maritime SATCOM Markets, 9th Edition continues to provide optimism for the long-term health of this key mobility vertical.

NSR’s Maritime SATCOM Markets, 9th Edition Report answers these key questions:

  • What is the on-going impact from COVID-19 on Passenger Maritime uptake? Is there an ‘end in sight’ for struggles in this segment?
  • How has COVID-19 shifted the uptake of FSS vs. HTS-based services in the Maritime Markets?
  • Is there still a role for Narrowband Connectivity in our ‘always-on’ lives? What Markets matter for these form factors?
  • What is the role for Non-GEO HTS connectivity in Maritime?
  • When will equipment, service, and retail revenues improve?
  • What are the major service providers market shares by revenues and VSAT deployments?
The Bottom Line: NSR finds new technologies unlocking more vessel sizes and end-users across the maritime markets requiring more throughput to enable their digital transformation agendas.

Maritime Satcom Markets, 9th Edition provides forecasts on key parameters to help readers access the various markets for:

  • In-Service Units for each airframe market by frequency band and region,
  • Broadband SATCOM Penetration for each sub-sector in key years (2020, 2025, 2030) and each sector for VSAT vs. MSS Broadband uptake from 2020 to 2030,
  • Retail, Equipment, and Service Revenues that provide breakdowns by Region, Vessel-type, and Capacity. The associated Average Revenue per Unit figures are further calculated,
  • Capacity Demand and Revenues for FSS, GEO-HTS, and Non-GEO HTS offerings.
