October 11, 2022 | Aerospace & Defense

The global Satellite Communication market size is anticipated to display vigorous growth by reaching USD 56.74 billion by 2029. Fortune Business Insights™ in its report titled "Satellite Communication (SATCOM) Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Component (Transmitter/Transponder, Receiver, Transceiver, Antenna, and Others), By Platform (Portable SATCOM Equipment, Land SATCOM Equipment, Maritime SATCOM Equipment, and Airborne SATCOM Equipment), By End-user (Commercial and Government & Defense), By Application (Broadcasting, Remote Sensing, Military Applications and Navigations, Weather Monitoring, and Others), and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029" observes that the market size was valued at USD 27.56 billion in 2021 and reached 29.98 billion in 2022. The market is anticipated to witness a CAGR of 9.54% during 2022-2029. The surging need for small satellites for earth observation services and mobile satellite services across the defense industries is likely to fuel the market's progress.

Thales Alenia Introduced High Throughput Craft, SES-17, to Accelerate Digitization

A very high throughput craft, SES-17, was built by Thales Alenia Space to provide "unparalleled" connectivity services to end-users across the sectors of maritime, aeronautical, enterprise, and government. The motto of this service is to accelerate digitization and expand high-speed broadband network capabilities across the U.S.

Halt on Production Activities Hindered Market Development

A substantial impact has been observed on the aviation sector during the COVID-19 outbreak. Several factors, such as limited export & import of essential raw materials and production challenges amid enforced border restrictions by governments in several countries, have lowered the demand for the product. Furthermore, reduced procurement contracts and slow production rates from Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) harm the market growth.
