Mobility: Satellite well-positioned to benefit from market take-off  
By Dimitri Buchs, Senior Consultant, Euroconsult

A confluence of market and technology forces have contributed to a period of great turbulence in the satellite industry in recent years. This is highlighted by the fact that FSS operators wholesale revenues decreased in 2018 (by 0.5%) for the fourth consecutive year despite a continued increase in traffic, with this situation due to reductions in capacity pricing across all regions. In 2018, the mobility segment was one of the bright spots for the FSS industry with the segment expected to continue to observe strong growth in coming years. According to Euroconsult’s 2019 edition of Satellite Connectivity and Video Markets Survey (published in September 2019), total satellite capacity leased increased to nearly 1.3 Tbps in 2018, up 27% year-over-year. Mobility applications observed a 50% increase in capacity leased in 2018 at 48 Gbps with Aero the fastest growing satcom application (81% growth).

The satellite mobility market comprises four main verticals. Each one of them has a different degree of maturity in terms of connectivity:
