Satellite companies

Analysys Mason works with the world’s leading fixed and mobile satellite operators, and downstream providers of satellite services in the telecoms and media markets, delivering strategic insights in an evolving sector.

We have undertaken projects for the top operators in both fixed satellite services (FSS) and mobile satellite services (MSS) sectors, and helped leading regional operators around the world. We also work with satellite service providers who resell capacity to telecoms operators or use it to provide broadcast satellite TV.

Our expertise in the satellite sector includes business planning and market forecasting, financial transaction support (including acting as lenders' market advisers for new satellite projects), regulatory and litigation support, market entry and distribution strategies for new operators and product launch strategies for established operators.

Analysys Mason also works with DTH satellite TV operators.
