Mobile satellite services (MSS) are the telecom services provided to the mobile users with the help of satellite technology to establish communication between portable terminals or mobile devices. The availability of the mobile communication beyond the terrestrial-based wireless system is a salient feature of MSS. The cost of mobile devices and the poor connection between mobile devices are key drawbacks of these services. MSS are used for emergencies such as distress, natural disasters, war zones, and breakdown of emergency communication.
The increase in demand for mobility, rise in integration between mobile and satellite technology, and advancement in digital technology majorly drive the MSS market. However, low available bandwidth and poor quality of voice and data in inadequate signal conditions, and increase in government regulations on the use of satellite technology restrict the market growth. Growth in trend of Internet of Things (IoT), allocation of additional bandwidth for MSS, and increase in competition in the Internet service market create abundant growth opportunities. However, lack of assurance for the reliability of MSS over different regions is the key challenge for MSS market growth.
The market is recognized by moderate competition due to huge capital investment. The competition is based on performance, reliability, product features, quality, and innovation. For instance, Newtec Inc. launched MCX 7000 multi carrier satellite gateway for advance end-to-end primary destitution system on May 2017, which is prominent innovation in satellite technology.
