In orbit: Low government spending may limit growth, despite rising broadband connections


Radar & Satellite Operations in the US

The Radar and Satellite Operations industry represents the smallest industry in the US telecommunications sector; working closely with telecommunication service providers, this industry offers only specialized satellite telecommunication services and plays a critical role in the operation of satellites rather than its manufacture. Although the industry remains a vital and growing industry for telecommunications and defense contractors, its growth has slowed over the past five years. The industry's success depends on expanding downstream broadband connections, as well as increased per capita disposable income and strengthened investment in computers and software. While higher demand from satellite telecommunication and TV providers pushed satellite providers' networks to capacity and improved industry participants' bottom lines, the industry suffered from limited room in federal defense budgets for new satellite technology, resulting in slight declines in profit. Over the next five years, the industry is expected to experience steady but slowing revenue growth. The digital economy will open up additional markets for satellite technology, particularly with respect to satellite-based internet provision in remote areas of the world. Moreover, major telecommunications providers will likely move toward adding satellite infrastructure to their more traditional offerings.

Industry operators provide specialized satellite telecommunication services such as satellite tracking, telemetry and radar station operation. They also provide terminal stations and facilities connected with terrestrial systems that transmit telecommunications to, and receive telecommunications from, satellite systems. The industry does not provide telecommunication services but works closely with those that do, reflecting high interdependence in the telecommunications sector.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
