"The Arab world is a huge market for the satellite industry, with many countries interested in building their own satellite networks. However, independent programmes are costly and require very complicated follow-up. Therefore, some of these countries are partnering with Arabsat to share resources and build new satellites, thereby meeting requirements by carrying hosted payloads designed and customised for their own use."
