Since 2006, the industry has been trending upward because it has become a more important part of telecommunication services provision. Development of the direct-to-home (DTH) TV market, expansion of broadband internet services and advances in digital technology, including HDTV and interactive TV services, have driven industry demand. Also, the advantages of satellite technology over cable have enabled the industry to increase penetration in a number of lucrative markets, such as maritime, mining, oil and gas, media, telecommunications and government. Industry revenue will continue to grow during the five years to 2016, but current challenges facing the industry, specifically tight lending conditions, will inhibit this growth.
Companies in this industry provide telecommunications connections via satellite for broadcasters and other telecommunications providers. This industry excludes direct-to-home satellite TV services, which are covered in the Satellite Television Providers industry (NAICS 51711b).
