Mining should be an ideal energy segment for the satellite industry to generate progressing revenues, given the remote nature of operations, the mission-criticality of requirements and the growing digitization activities in the sector as a whole.
We won’t lie – 2018 was a hard year for satellite players with an interest in the Energy Markets. Commodity pricing for energy products was weak or unstable, global economic activity shrank, and energy customers had their own financial challenges. So – in the face of ongoing macro-economic challenges, why does NSR continue to be so optimistic around a 2020 turnaround?
NSR’s Energy SATCOM Markets, 8th Edition (ESM8) report, released today, forecasts retail revenues for key energy markets (Onshore and Offshore Oil & Gas, Midstream pipeline distribution, Mining, and Electrical Utilities) to yield nearly $10 Billion in cumulative revenues from 2018 – 2028.
