GLOBAL SATELLITE OPERATORS ROUNDTABLE
M&As, Partnerships and the Changing Competitive Landscape
The top global operators have announced strategic partnerships, key investments, going public and other initiatives that have and will continue to change the competitive landscape over the mid-to-long term. This panel will examine satellite business issues in the Asia Pacific, including the impact of M&A activity, threat and/or opportunities presented by LEOs and the strategic road map ahead for these large global players. Key areas and questions to be discussed include:
What is the investment roadmap in terms of risk-taking specific to the Asia Pacific region?
How will you address the entrance of SpaceX/Starlink, Amazon Kuiper, Eutelsat/OneWeb?
Will your role in the value chain change or evolve over time?
How will you target and/or address AI, Cloud services, 5G and other next-generation demand and technology trends? For instance, will your companies eventually go all in with Software-defined satellites?
The Asia Pacific is one, if not, the most fragmented regions in the globe with national and regional operators competing with global players. Local or national government support seems to be increasing as part of an emerging national space industrial policy. How will you address this market dynamic?
