Satellite sector central to Asian communications

Hong Kong, June 24, 2009 – The announcement of two Asia Pacific DTH platforms (Echostar/AsiaSat for Taiwan and VTV/Canal+ for Vietnam), along with a new Asian procurement and launch programme (ABS-2 from Space Systems/Loral & Arianespace), plus an Arianespace launch contract for Singapore/Taiwan’s ST-2 satellite, has reinforced the essential nature of satellites for the Asian communications industry.
During the recent CASBAA Satellite Industry Forum in Singapore, CASBAA and consultancy Euroconsult announced 9% regional market growth for 2008 (click here for download the CASBAA’s “Video in Demand” Asian satellite services report), the highest recorded in the past decade with, according to CASBAA, another six Asia Pacific satellites set to be launched in the next six months. “Satellite services are central to the good health of Asia’s domestic and regional communications industries,” said Simon Twiston Davies, CEO of CASBAA.
