DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/pkk4tc/global_maritime) has announced the addition of the "Global Maritime VSAT Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.
Growth prospects and market forecast of the global maritime VSAT services market and a segmentation analysis by technology (HTS, L-band, KU-band, and C-band), and by number of terminals (Ka-band, c-band, and Ku-band). Market shares for APAC, Americas, and the EMEA are included in this report. The leading vendors analyzed in this report include Harris Caprock, Hughes, Inmarsat, KVH, RigNet, ViaSat, and VT iDirect.
Most maritime VSAT service providers depend on the Ku-band, leading to the overcrowding of the Ku-band frequencies. Installation of the Ku-band terminals also requires more time. Therefore, many operators are shifting to the Ka-band. The Ka-band offers a wider spectrum, resulting in higher capacity and serving many users simultaneously. Because of these benefits, most VSAT antenna manufacturers are manufacturing Ka-band antennas. In addition, Ku-band antennas are being upgraded to the Ka-band.
According to the report, safety and security at sea for vessels and crew is a major concern for maritime companies. Adoption of satellite communication systems ensures the safety and security of ships from terrorism, armed robbery, and piracy. It has also helped make communication at sea secure and reliable.
Further, the report states that the large stabilized antenna platform and advanced terminal electronics makes the equipment and installation cost of maritime VSAT higher than that of the L-band products. A typical maritime VSAT installation costs between $50,000 and $100,000. Therefore, only heavy data users install this set-up while most small vessels rely on the smaller and cheaper L-band products.
