The Global Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) Market is forecast to reach $8.20 billion by 2027, from $4.53 billion in 2019.
The growing demand for consistent and uninterrupted services by the maritime and aeronautics sector will drive the growth of the mobile satellite services market.
Mobile satellite services (MSS) offers two-way data and voice communications to users across the globe who are always traveling or are in remote locations. MSS is frequently used for its global reception.
The terminals range in size from handheld to laptop-size. These terminals can be mounted in a vehicle where communications can be maintained even when the vehicle is moving. MSS operates at an L-band, low enough in the frequency spectrum to avoid the rain fade related to higher bandwidth like Ka- and Ku-band fixed satellite systems.
MSS is a mobile telephone service that depends on portable terrestrial satellites rather than a fixed terrestrial satellite and is known as cell phone towers. They can be mounted on moving vehicles such as ships, cars, airplanes, and individuals can also carry them. Businesses adopt voice satellite services to ensure consistent, uninterrupted communications for their workers in mining, fishery, construction, transport, communications, and tourism industries.
North America dominated the market for mobile satellite services owing to high demand from the government, aviation, and maritime sectors. The region has advanced technologies that need uninterrupted and consistent mobile networks. The region occupied 31.9% of the market revenue in the year 2019.
Further key findings from the report suggest…
- The voice mobile satellite is an effective solution for government agencies to manage coast guards and forest rangers, making it possible for them to aid people on the islands and borders. It is very needed during natural disasters.
- Companies are supporting polar adventures by providing tourists with voice satellite services. Polar adventurer Antony Jinman used Iridium GO! for his Antarctica trip.
- The increase in the number of flight services has increased the demand for mobile satellite services. Commercial airlines will use it to provide their clients with full internet access, which includes e-mail with attachments, shopping, corporate intranet connectivity, and more.
