Global satellite SCADA/M2M market 'to reach $2.7bn in 2021', satellite-based EO market to triple

Satellite & EO Satellite & EO

Farmington, Connecticut, USA. October 17, 2012 (PRNewswire-iReach) — GII research says that the satellite EO industry is progressively moving from growth fed by from governmental and military orders to a more balanced mix of end users, laying the groundwork for a decade of growth in both data and value-added services (VAS) segments.

Meanwhile, a healthy mix of satellite-based System Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) / M2M opportunities is projected over the long term, albeit via a shifting mix of vertical market demand. While the market for traditional verticals is expected to grow at single-digit levels, emerging verticals are expected to grow impressively over the next decade.

Global Information Inc (GII) has announced the availability of three new market research reports covering the global market for satellite telecom from its premium market research partner, Northern Sky Research, LLC (NSR).

SCADA/M2M via Satellite, 3rd Edition

The global satellite SCADA/M2M market is expected to reach $2.7 billion in 2021, growing more than two-fold from today’s $1.2 billion annual revenue base. The market is currently dominated by L-band and is likely to remain the preferred platform over the long term. However, Ku-band has gained inroads in the transportation / cargo market and is used more frequently in new verticals, specifically in green energy for the provision of high bandwidth CCTV for security requirements. Ku-band’s higher ARPU levels and healthy market share in an otherwise predominantly narrowband market is likely to lead to the entrance of HTS, which could change the market in significant ways.

The SCADA/M2M via Satellite, 3rd Edition report provides a complete and comprehensive analysis of addressable markets and demand trends for the SCADA/M2M market today, covering eight regions and seven distinct vertical markets. The report forecasts in-service units and service revenues for each frequency platform that includes L-band, Ku-band, C-band and HTS for the period 2011-2021.

Global Satellite-Based Earth Observation, 4th Edition

As UAV-based EO rapidly improves its value proposition alongside satellite-based EO, they will increasingly compete in each market. With a developing choice of EO data sources, end-user source-agnosticism is also getting stronger, especially as the satellite EO data value is multiplied when combined with data from other satellites, other sources of EO data and other types of data.

These trends, among others, point to a growth period associated with an intensification of the competition as the industry leaves the emerging phase of its lifecycle. This period of change makes the identification of the appropriate key success factors more important than ever.

NSR’s Global Satellite-Based Earth Observation (EO), 4th Edition provides analysis of the trends affecting the satellite EO data industry and a new segmentation based on end-user vertical markets. The report includes a step-by-step analysis of the industry’s macro-environment, its competitive intensity, the situation in each market (segmented by end-user verticals, regions and instrument-resolution), the major players and their imaging capabilities currently in-orbit and planned, and a cartography of the value chain.

NSR identifies key success factors and forecasts the evolution of the data and VAS markets over the next 10 years, and presents them segmented by end-user vertical markets, regional markets and instrument-resolution; the latter is also used to present data price forecasts, an innovation claimed by NSR’s report.

Satellite Operator Financial Analysis, 2nd Edition

NSR’s Satellite Operator Financial Analysis, 2nd Edition study is an assessment of the key financial metrics for the leading global and regional fixed satellite services (FSS) operators. It provides an in-depth analysis of reported results over time, as well asa cross comparison between the operators. Resulting benchmarks for the industry are also reported, providing standards useful in decision-making.

The outcome is an evaluation of each company’s execution of their strategy, with results that determine true performance, health and outlook of the FSS operator community, taking into account both internal and industry-wide factors. NSR puts the results into context and ranks the FSS operators by performance and metric.
