Top Players in the Satellite Communication (SATCOM) Market

Top Players in the Satellite Communication (SATCOM) Market

The global satellite communication (SATCOM) market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.03% during 2024-2032. As per the analysis by IMARC Group, the satellite communication industry is evolving due to the integration of digital processors in the sky and specialized software, along with the advent of several technological advancements in telecommunications and computer processes. One such expertise is the launch of portable SATCOM systems and the integration of connected devices with the internet of things (IoT), which is assisting in enabling the smooth functioning of autonomous and connected vehicles. The increasing utilization of cloud-based services for ground mobility platforms are also aiding key leaders in ensuring the effective wireless interconnection via terrestrial and satellite communications. On account of the growing demand for multimedia services, high mobility, and global connectivity, such advancements in wireless techniques are further helping in achieving transparent interoperability of the communication infrastructure. Additionally, leading players are locating new satellites in lower earth orbit (LEO) to improve latency, thereby eliminating the limitation of geosynchronous systems. LEO satellites are also being used for backhauling scenarios and providing coverage to undeserved areas as telecommunication firms are currently investing in building full fifth generation (5G) network ecosystems. Other trends in satellite communication market includes restructuring commercial satellite systems through acquisitions and mergers, introducing novel encoding capabilities, and using frequency modulation and division multiplex combined with division multiple accesses for satellite attitude control. These advancements, in turn, are making SATCOM systems more versatile, personally responsive, and powerful, while being cost-effective.
