Increasing need for enriched data communication drives the market growth of maritime satellite communication market

With the increase in sophistication and need of reliable data communications across remote marine regions, the scope of maritime satellite communication systems has increased. The growing communication needs of ships, vessels, rigs, and navel sector to maintain operational efficiency, on-board security, and employee/passenger welfare has resulted in increasing demand for bandwidth and data communication terminals. Furthermore, maritime satellite communication has increasing applications in maritime assistance, medical assistance, emergency calling, employee welfare, passenger assistance and enhanced maritime security, vehicle telemetry, marine vessel tracking, fleet management, and remote field service.

VSAT technology to play a key role in the maritime satellite communication market

The very small aperture terminal (VSAT) technology is estimated to dominate the maritime satellite communication market during the forecast period. At present, VSAT holds more than 61% share of the overall market. The rapid shift from mobile satellite communication (MSS) to VSAT is attributed to bandwidth and cost advantages that VSAT offers to marine users. At present, the penetration of VSAT across Ka-Band is maximum and this trend is expected to continue till 2020. On the other hand, the Ku-Band segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to increasing deployment of maritime satellite communication services across Ku-Band.
