FSS systems provide coverage of up to several square miles with minimal overlapping of another FSS system's coverage area allowing users to communicate, with multiple FSS systems as they travel, without losing reception or connection. FSS systems handle communications for all the cell phones and televisions in a specific area including cell phone calls, text messages, television signals, videos, images and other types of files that can be sent or received using standard GSM signals. High investment costs are considered as a major restraint for this market that can be eliminated with the facility of transponder leasing agreements, which in turn drives the market. The satellites providing FSS require low power output and larger dish antenna for reception. Organizations are increasingly spending on various services such as telecom/voice backhaul, broadcast and content delivery, broadband and enterprise connectivity, emergency services, military communications, etc., driving the market for FSS systems.
FSS eliminates transit charges and provides high speed of initiation, which will multiply the growth of the market. Additionally, it provides high performance, reliability and cost effective structure reliability creating a positive impact on market growth. Furthermore, the increase in the number of broadband subscribers and HDTV channels along with the acceleration of DTH TV platforms is expected to flourish the FSS market. Increasing demand for corporate enterprise networks and consumer broadband combined with the need for high-throughput connectivity in oil & gas sector are expected to be the key drivers of the market. The growth in the use of high throughput satellite (HTS) for broadband communication, which deals with frequency reuse and onboard processing coupled with double throughput ability than a traditional FSS, is expected to boost the market. However, increasing competition from fiber-optic transmission cable networks and high capital investment are the major restraints for the growth of FSS market. Also, restricted orbital locations and defiance related to the deployment of the application, requiring the precarious role of ground station equipment vendors, could hinder the FSS market. On the other hand, governmental regulations are likely to create a positive impact on the FSS market.
In this report, the global FSS market is segmented into service type, organization size, end users and geography. The geographical coverage in this study includes North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa. Even though the FSS market is highly regulated in North America, the increasing use of Ka-band to better serve the needs of end users is driving the market prominently in North America. Due to the presence of large customer base along with the increase in a number of subscribers for both broadband and DTH platforms, Asia Pacific and MEA are expected to have the highest growth opportunities.
