Satellite Communication (SATCOM) Equipment Trends

The global satellite communication (SATCOM) equipment market for space is making a substantial progress due to increasing launch of satellites in recent years. SATCOM equipment comprises electronic devices that enable communication with satellites in earth’s orbit or space, such as amplifiers, space antennas, and transceivers. Space SATCOM equipment is the backbone of space agencies and commercial space companies, as SATCOM takes care of the information & communication infrastructure of space industry. Moreover, SATCOM is used for various other application such as direct-to-home television broadcasting, telecommunication, digital satellite news gathering (DSNG), weather tracking, and others.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers and impact analysis

Surge in satellite dispatch for applications such as remote sensing and earth observation, demand for enriched data communication, and rise in expenditure on space programs are the factors that drive the global SATCOM equipment market for space. However, government regulations on space equipment & satellite launches hinder the market growth. Contrarily, demand for 5G high-speed internet, global connectivity, optical communications, 3-D printing, and cloud-based platforms present new pathways in the industry.

The global SATCOM equipment market for space trends are as follows:

Surge in satellite dispatch for applications such as remote sensing and earth observation

Launch of satellites to cater the demands for agriculture monitoring, weather pattern monitoring, remote sensing, earth observation, and navigation has been increasing in recent years. For instance, on 27th December, 2018, Vostochny Cosmodrome (a Russian spaceport) launched Soyuz rocket (most frequently used Russian made launch vehicle) to establish two Russian government earth observation satellites along with 26 other small satellites, into earth’s orbit. Such frequent satellite launches are expected to boost the global SATCOM equipment market for space.

Rise in expenditure on space programs

Space agencies has been spending more in space programs to achieve breakthrough in advance technologies. For instance, in 2019, Estonian space agency finished the development and construction of a CubeSat (103 cm cubic miniature satellite, known as ESTCube-2) to test plasma braking (satellite deorbiting technology), electric rail propulsion (propulsion system utilizing dynamic thrust of solar winds), and a classified high-speed communication sub-system. Launch of this satellite is due in 2021, moreover the whole project is expected to cost approx. 550,000 USD. Such expenditure on pursuance of advanced technologies in space industry will drive the global space SATCOM equipment market for space.
