Explosive demand from new Asian TV channels is driving satellite-revenue growth, and regional operators -- as well as their value-added-reseller customers -- continue to expand their reach, both in local country markets and to regions throughout the world. Asian aeronautical and maritime interests are lining up for Satcoms on the Move. Energy-sector expansion in Southeast Asia holds strong promise. Universal service programs are expanding. What's the catch? New national satellite programs continue to be launched and announced, raising fears that they will dump capacity in a marketplace that is already the most competitive in the world. China and India are big, but obstacles in their domestic markets beg the question: Are two of the largest “BRIC” nations important as a source of new customers or, rather, as the next source of major competition throughout the region and the world. From mergers and acquisitions to condo-sats and co-opetition, this session will reveal the expansion plans and success strategies of Asia's leading players.
