The anticipated 2007 update to the pioneering Sizing the Teleport Market study, originally published in 2004.  Unlike the prior report, the 2007 study includes global, regional and national statistics not only for commercial teleports but also teleports owned and operated by broadcast, cable and DTH channels in 155 nations. 

According to WTA, the study revealed some surprising views of the strength, growth and influence of the teleport industry.  Commercial providers operate 575 of the world's teleports.  They account for US$15 billion in transmission services revenues, up 17% from 2004, and US$3 billion in annual capital spending on communications and information technology equipment, up 19rom 2004.  They also employ 73% of the labor force involved in teleport operations. 

Broadcasters, by contrast, operate 43f the world's teleports, account for less than $900 million in capital spending on communications and IT gear, and employ 27% of the ground segment labor force. 

One-Quarter of All Satellite Services Revenue

The 2006 Satellite Industry Indicators study by Futron Corporation estimates worldwide satellite transmission revenues at $62.6 billion.  With the teleport sector accounting for $15 billion of that total, nearly one-quarter of all transmission spending runs through the accounts of commercial teleport operators.  Thus, teleports are a vital market channel for the world's satellite operators even as they have become increasingly diverse in their use of transmission technology, mixing satellite with fiber and increasingly with wireless for last-mile services. 

Regional and National Hot Spots: North America Still the Largest Market with the Middle East Growing Swiftly

North America remains the single largest market for teleports services, with $4.1 billion in revenues, followed by Europe with $3.9bn.  The fastest-growing regions for commercial teleport operations are the Middle East (61% revenue growth to $793m), Asia (50% growth to $3.5bn) and Russia/NIS (40% growth to $540m). By contrast, North America has grown at a stately 8% (to $3.3bn), Latin America at 7% (to $1.1bn) and Europe at 4%. 

The top five countries for commercial teleport operators - the USA, UK, India, Canada and Germany - experienced modest revenue growth ranging from a low of 7% in the US to a high of 23% in Canada.  The growth leaders are Israel (255%), the Philippines (103%), Portugal (85%), Sweden (70%), South Korea (58%) and Malaysia (57%).
