Despite Global Price Declines Averaging 5% in 2021, Industry Approaches Temporary Stabilization Cambridge, MA – NSR’s latest report, Satellite Capacity Pricing Index, 7th Edition (2021) finds capacity price declines decelerating in 2021, with the global mean price index declining by ~5-6% in Q1 2021, in contrast to ~13% in Q1 2020. This decline is projected.
MEV-2 is also not moving its satellite to a different orbit like MEV-1 did; instead it will act as a new engine and fuel tank to extend the spacecraft’s life. Demand for GEO life extension missions will grow to 75 satellites by 2030, according to a recent Northern Sky Research (NSR) forecast, representing a $3.2.
NSR Bottom Line quoted in TV Technology article. An analysis of C-band spectrum reallocation from Northern Star Research published today finds a limited sale of mid C-band spectrum is the best way for Intelsat and SES to pay down or even eliminate debt and begin investing in video and data distribution based upon hybrid satellite.
With global Oil & Gas markets still showing signs of instability, can the satellite communications industry continue to cite Energy markets as a ‘key vertical?’ Even in this ‘downturn’ there are opportunities, right? Regardless of oil pricing trends, there are clear needs for communications, and data-driven innovation across the Energy market value-chain – from ‘big.

From pockets of instability to geopolitical crises through to the rapid response required in natural disaster management, the requirements for gov/military connectivity continue on a rapid rise upwards. However, with budgets still strained around the world, will users primarily turn to military/government-owned OR commercial satellites.
