The Satellite TV providers industry posted solid growth over the past five years, supplying a variety of programming to a broadening subscriber base willing to pay a premium for in-home entertainment. New networks, more channels and bonus features have strengthened the industry. However, the cost of acquiring and maintaining subscribers has increased, and stiff competition prevents providers from passing costs to customers, threatening revenue growth. In the five years to 2019, a slowing subscription rate, coupled with increasing competition from online streaming companies, will hinder industry growth. Nonetheless, increasing per capita disposable income and new household formation are expected to drive the industry.
Companies in this industry distribute TV programs on a subscription or fee basis through direct broadcast satellites. The industry also includes multipoint distribution system operators that deliver wireless TV programming using ground stations. These companies operate in rural areas and have a negligible effect on industry performance. This industry excludes TV networks and other satellite telecommunications providers.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
