NSR’s 5G via Satellite: Impacts, Demand and Revenue Potential to 2029 report is the first and only analysis covering the impact of 5G in its wider scope for the satellite industry. The report offers a strategic assessment and a quantitative forecast for the opportunities unlocked by 5G in the Satcom ecosystem.

The study leverages NSR’s extensive and in-depth satellite industry knowledge to assess the key trends behind each major category of 5G connectivity-services and 5G core infrastructure in the Satcom ecosystem:

  • Fixed Applications
  • Mobile Applications
  • Backend Infrastructure

The core of NSR’s detailed market review is rooted in the bottom-up assessment and forecast of 5G demand for each specific segment in each of the five different regions (NAM, LAM, EU, MEA, & Asia) analyzed in this study. The forecast period for all market segments covers ten years running from 2019 to 2029. The report outlines the 5G opportunity broken down in 11 verticals: Cellular Backhaul, Trunking, Hybrid Distribution, Corporate Networks, Aero, Maritime, Land-Mobile, Gov & Mil, IoT, Ground Segment and Space Segment. Forecasts are also structured by frequency: MSS; FSS – X, C, Ku, Ka; GEO HTS – C, Ku, Ka; Non-GEO HTS as relevant per each vertical. NSR forecasts Active Sites, Capacity Demand, Capacity Revenues, Shipments and CPE Revenues.

Key Questions Answered in this Report:
  • How will 5G impact the Satellite Communications industry?
  • Will 5G be a catalyzer for Satellite Demand? What applications and use cases will experience the fastest growth?
  • What technology aspects of 5G can be adopted by Satcom?
  • What is the timeline and what should be the strategic position for the different steps of the Satellite Value Chain?
  • How will the Satcom Value Chain and Satellite Network architecture change with the emergence of 5G?
The Bottom Line: what are the actionable insights to capture revenue growth and streamline Satellite Network Operations leveraging 5G?

NSR’s 5G via Satellite: Impacts, Demand and Revenue Potential report is the first and unique report that looks into the broad and deep implications of 5G into the Satellite Communications industry. It covers 5G in its widest scope, from the transformation of the infrastructure segments (Baseband, Space Segment), to the extensive use cases stimulated by 5G (Cellular Backhaul, Trunking, Hybrid Distribution, Corporate Networks, Aero, Maritime, Land-Mobile, Gov & Mil, IoT).

The report is based on long standing methodologies that have been validated and improved over the extensive NSR experience in the Satcom industry. NSR rigorously tracks the public announcements of all major players across the value chain and has carried extensive interviews to build base year data and carefully formulate forecast data. In addition, NSR is actively present in major conferences and events in order to assess, discuss and analyze new and emerging market trends with key players in the satellite and terrestrial industries such as the Mobile World Congress as well as satellite specific events.

The report combines the wide and well-grounded NSR analysis for each key vertical market in a single report with specific focus on the impact and opportunities that 5G brings to the satellite industry.
