[Excerpt] The global satellite communications industry is undergoing rapid change today, with price declines, large increases in capacity volumes, and a general pivot of the satellite operator business model towards selling lots of Mbps, as opposed to relatively few MHz.

According to Euroconsult’s latest report, “FSS Operators: Benchmarks & Performance Review,’’ Geostationary Orbit (GEO) operators are challenged by the complex business environment over the past few years. FSS operators’ capacity revenue declined from a peak of $12.3 billion in 2014 to $11.5 billion in 2018. Yet the structure of the FSS market has been largely stable over the past few years.
