The satellite industry has undergone tremendous change in the last two years. The days of ambitious expansion and the technology-driven dream that 'bigger is better' seem to be in the past. The list of major sectors on the downward side of the business cycle is daunting - commercial satellite manufacturing, telephony, broadband, launch services, and transponder sales. These difficult circumstances are, however, forcing a healthy shake out and rebuilding of business plans on a more solid and reasonable foundation. More than ever, the future of the communication satellite industry now depends on end-user demand for specific applications in target regions. The core of the 2003 Frost & Sullivan Satellite Communications Subscription studies these key application markets on a region-by-region basis.
The commercial space industry still seems in denial of the changes that it is facing. For instance, many satellite manufacturers are confidently forecasting 15 to 20 new commercial satellite orders for 2003 - a five- to six-fold increase over the dismal 2002 orders. The in-depth research and market knowledge available from the Frost & Sullivan Satellite Communications subscription offers a more realistic view. While the industry is no doubt showing a turnaround, a strong upturn of the current business cycle is still expected to take 12 to 18 months.
The Satellite Communications subscription enables companies to make informed decisions to capitalize on existing market opportunities. Frost & Sullivan information is kept current through revisions and constant contact with industry participants, providing clients with up-to-date trends, insights, and market measurements of global space-related markets. This subscription is delivered electronically via a user-controlled web interface. The various deliverables for this subscription will be distributed each quarter throughout 2003.
