NSR’s VSAT and Broadband Satellite Markets, 16th Edition is the longest-running industry analysis of the fixed broadband satellite sector, including all key markets, verticals and regions.  

The study is structured in 2 key segments:

The study covers the global installed base of sites and subscribers broken down by 5 regions, forecasts capacity demand, assesses capacity and service revenues as well as CPE shipments and revenues. This edition offers the deepest detailed analysis for Fixed Enterprise VSAT verticals, breaking down all key metrics in 7 different applications.

The report also analyzes capacity revenue trends in this challenging time for pricing, equipment vendor market share and Consumer Broadband addressable markets. Now standard in NSR’s report, capacity and equipment forecasts are structured into FSS-C, -Ku and -Ka band, GEO-HTS-C, -Ku and -Ka band and non-GEO-HTS. Strategic insights on markets and verticals key to capturing growth in the current transformational times are core elements of this study.
