Global Satellite Communication (SATCOM) Market to Grow at 9.5% during 2022-2027, Impelled by Expanding Aerospace and Aviation Industry

Published on May 23, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Satellite Communication (SATCOM) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global satellite communication (SATCOM) market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 9.5% during 2022-2027. Satellite communication (SATCOM) is an artificial satellite-based communication system that supports data link channels. It includes the transmission of radio waves through satellites to capture and process the information through antennas and transponders installed at different locations on Earth. It consists of a data unit, high power amplifier, antenna, and a steerable beam that transmits the information in voice, audio and video formats through electromagnetic waves and carrier signals. Owing to these properties, SATCOM finds extensive applications across various industries for radio broadcasting, navigation, remote sensing, and weather monitoring.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Satellite Communication (SATCOM) Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the expanding aerospace and aviation industries. In addition, various technological advancements, such as the integration of connected devices with the Internet of Things (IoT) and the introduction of portable SATCOM systems that enable the smooth functioning of autonomous vehicles, and the deployment of remote and terrestrial networks represent another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, SATCOM is widely utilized in the military and defense sector for wide area network (WAN) communications, cellular backhaul, internet trucking, television broadcasting and rural telephony. This, coupled with increasing partnerships and mergers and acquisitions (M&As) among key players, is also contributing to the market growth. For instance, Viasat, Inc. signed a partnership agreement with SKY Brazil, one of Brazil’s leading satellite pay-TV operators, in January 2021 to expand the availability of dependable and fast satellite internet throughout Brazil. Furthermore, significant developments in telecommunication infrastructure and the rising utilization of cloud-based services for ground mobility platforms are creating a favorable market outlook across the globe.
