Report Highlights

The global market for telecommunication components, modules, and devices in satellite technologies was estimated to total $18.5 billion in 2012 and is projected to increase to $19.5 billion in 2013; the market should total $21.4 billion by 2018 and have a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.9% from 2013 to 2018.

Report Includes

  • An overview of the global market for satellite technology which is a complex interplay of defense, regulatory, and market forces as the technology is considered a critical resource in most countries.
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2011 and 2012, estimates for 2013, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2018.
  • Discussion of how commercial applications of satellites have developed almost hand-in-hand with defense, communications, and environmental utilizations.
  • Coverage of broadcast and network management equipment and devices, including transponders, antennas, gateways, and terrestrial management infrastructure; and coverage of user premise-based and user-operated equipment and devices, including satellite phones, satellite radios, VSATs, navigation devices, reception antennas, and set-top boxes.
  • A breakdown of satellite applications, such as defense, weather, communications, and navigation, as well as end-use applications, such as gaming, media, and entertainment; telecommunications; education and research; defense and government; maritime; logistics; and automotive.

Report Scope

This report presents the forecasts for satellite components, modules and devices for 2013 through 2018 on a volume and value basis.

Sales values are presented in U.S. dollars.

Unit volumes are presented in two units:

  • Transponder equivalent (TPE) 36-MHz channels in case of transponder capacity.
  • Thousand units in case of all other measurables.

These forecasts are further broken down by operating segments, orbits, end-use application and geographic region.

The report covers the following operating segments:

  • Satellite: Further broken down into constituents such as transponders and antennas
  • Earth station: Further broken down into constituents such as high-power amplifiers (HPA), low-noise amplifiers (LNA), modems and antennas
  • User: Further broken down into constituents such as satellite phones and other mobile terminals, including broadband gateway area networks (BGAN); satellite radios; set-top boxes; very small aperture terminals (VSATs) and hubs; navigation devices; and antennas

Each constituent is measured in terms of sales value and the relevant unit volume. These constituents are further broken down by orbits, end applications and geographic regions.
Breakdown by orbit category includes:

  • Geosynchronous orbit (GEO)/Elliptical/Molniya.
  • Low earth orbit (LEO).
  • Medium earth orbit (MEO).

Breakdown by end-use application includes:

  • Enterprises and medicine.
  • Gaming, media and entertainment.
  • Telecommunications.
  • Education, ecology and research.
  • Defense and government.
  • Maritime applications.
  • Logistics
  • Automotive.

The regional breakdown focuses on:

  • Americas.
  • Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
  • Asia-Pacific (APAC).

Constituents of the satellite and earth station segments are broken down by key individual country markets. Country-specific analyses are included for:

  • Australia.
  • Brazil.
  • Canada.
  • China.
  • France.
  • Germany.
  • India.
  • Indonesia.
  • Israel.
  • Italy.
  • Japan.
  • Mexico.
