Global Mobile Satellite Services (MSS) Market: Snapshot

Mobile satellite service (MSS) is a telecommunication service beyond the terrestrial range that serves mobile users by using the satellites. MSS is an appropriate communication channel for remote areas that lack wired networks. MSS systems are categorized based on their orbital altitudes such as low earth orbit (LEO), medium earth orbit (MEO) and geostationary orbit (GEO). MSS find its application in the key market segments such as the government sector, aviation sector and maritime sector. It allows remote communication of voice, and data between the terminals. Distinguishing benefits of MSS are access diversity, global connectivity, priority access and terrain independence. These capabilities of MSS enhance remote communications and terrestrial-based wireless systems.

MSS operators use lower frequency S- and L-band frequencies of radio spectrum connecting to non-directional earth station antennas with terminals in space or on ground for mobile communications, maritime and other transport-related services. Deployment of MSS stations is rapid and provides secure and scalable communications to the end-users. Increasing demand for mobility is one of the key factor which is anticipated to drive the market’s growth trajectories. In-flight connectivity, maritime communication and autonomous vehicles are few of the prime factors responsible for growing users demand for mobility. Furthermore, oil and gas sector is increasing its use of video streaming for operations monitoring and crew welfare. With the rise in oil & gas and mining activities in remote areas, demand for MSS is increasing.mobile satellite services (mss) marketMilitary and Defense Segment Emerges Dominant among End Users
