Military and Commercial Satellite Communications Training

Satellite communications solutions are expected to drive the global satellite communications market growth at least through 2027.

This is largely due to the increase in Internet of Things (IoT) and autonomous systems and rise in demand for military and defense satellite communication modalities.

Additionally, technological advancements in satellite missions and deployment of 5G network through satellites are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the market in the future.

The satellite communication market is segmented into application, component, end-use industry and region. Based on the application, the market is further segmented into voice communication, broadcasting and data communication. Based on component, it is further divided into equipment and services.

Analysts report that what is particularly worth watching is the demand in SATCOM for government and defense usage that is constantly increasing — from a level of approximately 35Gbps in 2018 to an estimated 150Gbps by 2025.

The global satellite communication market size is expected to reach $137.63 billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 9.8%

The growing adoption rate of small satellites by the Department of Defense for various applications, including geospace and atmospheric research, tactical communication, and medium resolution imagery, is anticipated to propel the market growth.

Besides, the escalating demand for satellite communication (SATCOM) solutions in the aviation sector for better airline operations and air traffic management is expected to boost the market growth in the forthcoming years.

Much of SATCOM’s growth can be attributed to the advancement of the 5G network and launches of several scheduled Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellites. Consequently, the market for SATCOM is expected to expand at a significant pace in the forthcoming years.

Additionally, the expansion of satellite communication into the connectivity market has influenced the SATCOM providers to increase the emphasis on securing the speed of deployment of the Internet of Things (IoT) across the globe. At present, there are around 2.7 million devices serviced by satellites, including infrastructure, aviation, environmental monitoring, shipping, and military support.

In recent years, SATCOM providers have been observed with a paradigm shift toward offering high-capacity satellite transponders in terms of bandwidth that are capable of better transponder throughput, thereby decreasing costs. A SATCOM transponder is a wireless communication, monitoring, and control device that detects and automatically reacts to an incoming signal.
