FSS Operators - Benchmarks & Performance Review, 8th edition, is a unique survey of all active and pre-operational FSS operators dedicated to analyzing their business performance. The report provides in-depth profiles of all active or soon-to-launch FSS satellite operators, summaries on companies that will launch commercial satellites in the near future, and a global FSS operator ranking by revenues. This report expands the benchmark analysis with new performance indicators to provide a better view of the competitive positioning of each FSS operator. 

In its 8th edition, the report provides: 

- FSS operator ranking by revenues 
- Profiles of 41 FSS operators 
- Profiles of 18 emerging operators 

Highlights from the report: 

2014 was positive for most FSS operators despite the fact that half of revenue generating FSS operators experienced a slowdown in revenue growth. Industry growth was largely offset by the revenue decline recorded by ten operators including several large companies such as Intelsat, Telesat and JSAT. As a result, total FSS industry revenues nearly stabilized at $12.3 billion in 2014. In 2015, this trend is expected to continue, with industry revenues growing by 2% at constant exchange rates at the half year mark. 

Significant cause for concern in the FSS industry has been recognized in recent months as highlighted by the falling stock valuations of leading operators and the increasingly bearish sentiment on the sector amongst the investment community. A number of underlying challenges have led to this situation including the risk of oversupply in several regional markets (e.g. Africa) and revenue decline from the milsatcom segment following troop withdrawals in Afghanistan and budget sequestration. Whereas telecom applications were previously the main cause for concern, times have also become more challenging for operators in the video business, with some video contracts renewed at lower capacity prices and the end of a growing number of SD/HD simulcasts, particularly in the most mature markets such as Japan and South Korea. 

Key Findings 

- 21 operators had revenue of more than $100 million, while Spacecom reached this milestone for the first time in 2014 
- More than 85% of all FSS operators increased the number of regular transponders leased throughout 2014 
- 18 operators had fill rates of 80% or more, six of which had fill rates of 90% or more 
- 38,700 TV channels and 157 DTH pay-TV platforms were broadcast by satellite
