The global satellite phone market displayed robust growth in assessment years. The field of telecommunications will have a splendid run given the unique features on display by satellite phones. Satellite phones will continue to be a commercially viable media and accordingly satellite communications stress the need for satellite mobile services and broadcasting and discontinues notion of fixed point-to-point high capacity traditional services.
Mobile phones having taken off splendidly connecting citizens around the globe, there was this notion that certain areas on global face that were untouched by mobile communication should have a network and so satellite phones had taken shape, examples of which are Iridium, Globalstar and Iridium. Though satellite phones have begun operations, it has not been met with big success as it ought to have had but still satellite phones are the backbone of several communication applications worldwide.
Restraints to growth of satellite phone market include the growing competition to satellite phones from optical fibers. Design considerations in satellites are not as smooth-sailing as they should be and involves a lot of transmission loss in comparison to fixed point-to-point systems. This being reason enough that low-earth satellites are considered more reasonable as their counterpart; geostationary satellites at higher altitude give in to more signal loss.
Satellite phones are slightly cumbersome as they have to contend with larger antenna size and intelligence is short-lived in satellite phones in lieu of greater round-trip cycles to be travelled by the signal from start to finish point taking into instance call drops. Satellite telephones market has broadly been dissected into two segments and they are geosynchronous orbit and low-earth orbit.
Geosynchronous orbit has wider proportions of market share in comparison to low-earth orbit and will maintain this growth over forecast period. By region, North America has largest shares in the satellite phone market. Chiefly, driving factors to growth of satellite phone industry include the rising defense expenditure of economies and aircrafts and ships moving presence across the globe that will contribute to the growing market for satellite phones.
Satellite phones are not being accessed from foreign operators around the globe for fears of security infringement and a new ISP gateway for new wave satellite phones is on its way in Indian markets to be specific both for mobile and land line satellite communications. Segmentation of satellite phone industry by satellite type includes geosynchronous and low-earth orbiting.
By end-users, segmentation of satellite phone market includes defense, government, maritime, aviation, energy and others. By geographical region, segmentation of satellite phone industry includes North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, MEA and Latin America. The key players in satellite phone market include Inmarsat, Iridium, Thuraya, Globalstar, and Spot global phone.
