Global SATCOM Equipment Industry Expected to Reach $ 53.7 Billion by 2026


DUBLIN, September 30, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The “Satellite Communication Equipment (SATCOM) Market by Solution (Products and Services), Platform (Handheld, Land Mobile, Landline, Airborne, Maritime), Technology (SOTM / COTM, SOTP) , vertical, connectivity, The Frequency and region report – Forecast to 2026 “has been added to offer.

The SATCOM equipment market is expected to grow by $ 22.0 billion in 2021 to $ 53.7 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 19.6%.

SATCOM equipment is an integral part of communication in the commercial and defense industries. The deployment of low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites and satellite constellations for communication applications has increased their demand around the world. Other factors driving the growth of the market include the growing demand for Ku and Ka band satellites, and the growing fleet of autonomous and connected vehicles used for various applications in the military and commercial sectors, which require antennas. Personalized moving SATCOM.

The SATCOM equipment market is dominated by a few globally established players such as Thales Group (France), L3Harris Technologies (US), Honeywell International Inc. (US), Hughes Network Systems (US), Viasat, Inc. (US), among others. These actors have extended their activities in various countries, in particular North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. COVID-19 has affected the growth of the SATCOM equipment market to some extent, and it varies from country to country. Industry experts believe that the pandemic has not affected the demand for SATCOM equipment in the commercial, government and defense sectors.

On the basis of the platform, the airborne SATCOM segment is expected to represent the fastest growing SATCOM equipment market from 2021 to 2026.

Based on the platform, the airborne SATCOM segment is expected to dominate the SATCOM equipment market from 2021 to 2026 and is expected to continue growing due to the growing need for high definition intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) videos, and a growing number of connected commercial aircraft, increasing adoption of drones and growing number of private aviation companies around the world supporting market growth. In December 2019, The French Air Force has strengthened its airborne satellite communication capabilities by adopting new Thales technologies. The French Defense Agency has entrusted Thales with the design and construction of the new generation Syracuse 4 satellite communication system. This contract allows the French defense forces to improvise the SATCOM system in the Charles De Gaulle aircraft carrier and the Rafale fighter aircraft.

Based on the solution, the SATCOM EQUIPMENT market product segment by solution type is expected to experience the largest share in 2021.

Based on the solution, the product market is expected to dominate the SATCOM equipment market from 2021 to 2026. This is due to the increasing demand for phased array antenna systems in airborne and maritime platforms, data communication to broadband in airplanes, the need for high bandwidth data in harsh and isolated environments, and weatherproof enclosures that protect SATCOM antennas. In February 2021, Comtech Telecommunications Corp. was awarded a contract from NASA’s Glenn Research Center to install a Ka / S band antenna system and radome at its new aerospace communications facility in Cleveland, Ohio, supporting research on high-bandwidth space and aeronautical communications. In January 2021, Thales has won its third order to supply the US Army with the AN / PRC-148D Enhanced Multi-Band Inter / Intra Team (IMBITR) radios. The number of IMBITR radio controls is over 6,000.

On the basis of verticals, the business segment is expected to represent the fastest growing SATCOM EQUIPMENT market from 2021 to 2026.

On the basis of vertical markets, the commercial segment is expected to dominate the SATCOM equipment market from 2021 to 2026. This is due to the growing need for uninterrupted mobile broadband coverage in remote and remote areas, streaming information and entertainment, heavy use of small satellites for marketing and data portability, technological advancements in transportation and logistics networks, and growing demand for broadband connections and VSAT connectivity. In July 2021, the Digital Communications Commission (DCC) accepted the industry regulator’s appeal to allow VSAT operators to provide satellite cellular link connectivity to telecom operators to ensure uninterrupted mobile broadband coverage in remote and remote areas. .

The North American market is expected to contribute the largest share from 2021 to 2026 in the SATCOM equipment market

Depending on the region, North America is expected to dominate the SATCOM equipment market from 2021 to 2026. The United States is a lucrative market for SATCOM equipment in the North American region. The US government is investing more and more in the area of ​​SATCOM to improve the quality and efficiency of satellite communications. The growing investment in SATCOM equipment to improve the defense and surveillance capabilities of the armed forces, the modernization of existing communications in military platforms, critical infrastructure and law enforcement agencies increasingly use SATCOM equipments are key factors that are expected to boost the SATCOM equipments market in North America. In August 2020, the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) awarded Cubic Mission Solutions (CMS) a one-time award, indefinite delivery / indefinite quantity (ID / IQ) monitoring contract with a cap of $ 172 million. The contract is for the delivery of inflatable SATCOM terminals and baseband communication equipment to meet the communication needs of Special Operations Forces (SOF).
