Maritime VSAT market segmentation by technology
• High throughput satellites (HTS)
HTS services enable the transmission of high-end complex data along with voice and video, and complex enterprise applications. With growing competition, vessel owners are now focused on high-end enterprise applications for assets as well as logistics management. It has led to an increase in the demand for high throughput satellite services that enable larger bandwidth operations. Thus, the maritime VSAT service market by HTS is expected to increase rapidly during the forecast period.
Global maritime VSAT services market segmentation by number of terminals
This research report estimates the number of maritime vessels installing Ka-band terminals to increase by almost 5,000 units over the next four years. Due to high bandwidth capacity and low installation cost, most of the maritime VSAT service providers are dependent on Ka-band terminals. Many satellite operators are expected to invest heavily in Ka-band terminals because of the increased demand for Internet-based applications.
