M2M, Hybrid Devices, and Smartphones Drive Industry Growth
The mobile satellite market is experiencing strong growth throughout the world, with mobile workers, cargo, and remote applications driving the industry. Thus, handsets, modems, and M2M modules comprise the mobile satellite market, bringing satellite services to a diverse range of applications. This market is expected to continue to grow along with continually advancing technology and more accessible pricing models. Coverage for this market is also expected to continue to improve, and data services will increase in bandwidth and the scale in which they can be used. M2M will see the most rapid growth in this industry, while handsets and modems will still experience strong growth.
This research covers the satellite equipment and services that offer voice and/or data connectivity without the need for a large pointed antenna.
- All satellite phones are included, whether they use low, medium, or geosynchronous satellites.
- Phones connecting off broadband global area network (BGAN) terminals are included, while those using a very small aperture terminal (VSAT) connection are not.
- Mobile data using machine to machine (M2M), BGAN, satellite modem, or satellite Smartphone messaging are also included in the research.
- The wireless and wireline M2M market is not covered in this study. Frost & Sullivan has extensive M2M research in the most recent M2M study (N95A-65).
- The market in this study is quantified by subscribers, hardware sales, and service revenue and segmented by phones, M2M terminals, and modems.
- The global coverage is segmented into five major regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Rest of World.
- The discussion on the mobile satellite data and M2M market contained in this study is primarily focused on low-bandwidth, low-cost solutions.
- High-bandwidth, high-cost communication on the move (COTM) solutions, which are most often used by military and government users, are not covered in this research study. Frost & Sullivan does publish an annual Satellite Military, Government, and COTM research study that focuses on this industry. The most recent is “World U.S. Military and Government Commercial Satellite and Communication on the Move
