The global maritime satellite communication market is expected to grow from USD 2.01 Billion in 2015 to USD 3.10 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 9.0% during the forecast period. Escalating need of enriched data communication to improve operation efficiency, on-board security & surveillance, and employee/passenger welfare in maritime industry is driving the market. Furthermore, the leading players in the market are introducing less expensive technology to attract end-users which did not had the potential to use satellite communication earlier.

Video communication services are expected to reflect higher growth owing to increasing use of video conferencing, HD TV, and video entertainment applications. Passenger ship end-user segment will show the highest growth among all other end users due to an increase in business traveler’s demand for convenience of having advanced communication systems at sea and expectation for high speed data equipment.

Currently, very small aperture terminal (VSAT) technology is dominating the market and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. The maritime satellite communication market has reflected a rapid technology shift from mobile satellite service (MSS) to VSAT. This shift is attributed to the bandwidth and cost advantages that VSAT offers to marine users. The penetration of VSAT technology is maximum in Ka-Band. On the other hand, penetration across Ku-Band will show the highest growth owing to increasing deployment of maritime satellite communication services across Ku-Band during the forecast period.

At present, Europe region holds the highest market share. The factors driving maritime satellite communication market in Europe are low cost of solutions and high demand for implementing maritime satellite communication services for monitoring and tracking and internet access to communicate and transfer real-time information. The APAC region is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. APAC has been considered to be the emerging region in terms of adoption of satellite communication services for marine industry. This region has a large number of manufacturing industries, which creates opportunity for merchant shipping and thus creates demand for secure satellite-based communication.

Due to incising revenue stress in marine sectors, the fleet managers are looking for products and services that are economical and maintain price-performance trade-offs. The players in the maritime satellite communication market are actively responding to the changing market conditions by bringing solutions and services that offer choice for individual customers. As the market is becoming more customer-centric, even small vessel owners are able to subscribe to VSAT communication services.

Various factors, such as lack of awareness among customers and expensive infrastructure to support maritime satellite communication are hindering the market growth. For more than a decade, Inmarsat has enjoyed a monopoly with pricing advantage and dominance over global satellite communication market. However, currently the big players operating in MSS are facing competition from maritime VSAT service providers. Some of the key players in maritime satellite communication market are Inmarsat communications, Inc., Iridium communications, Inc., Thuraya Telecommunications Company, Hughes Network System LLC., and KVH Industries, Inc.
