The SATCOM equipment market is valued at USD 22.6 billion in 2023 and is projected to reach USD 38.7 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 11.3% from 2023 to 2028, according to Research and Markets.
Based on frequency, the multiband frequency is projected to register the highest during the forecast period 2023-2028.
Based on frequency, the SATCOM equipment market has been segmented into C band, L&S band, X band, Ka band, Ku band, VHF/UHF band, EHF/SHF band, Multiband, and Q band. Based on frequency, the multiband frequency is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period 2023-2028. Multi-band frequency is being increasingly used due to the need for seamless, assured connectivity between the network and grid.
Based on connectivity, MEO/GEO orbit segment is to lead the market during the forecast period 2023-2028
The SATCOM equipment market has been segmented based on connectivity into LEO and MEO/GEO orbit. MEO/GEO orbit segment to lead the market during the forecast period 2023-2028. MEO high throughput satellites are challenging GEO satellites in cost per bit and overall operational efficiency. Several advantages, including the low manufacturing cost of smaller satellites used in prominent constellations, provide a viable commercial option for large GEO satellites for communication.
Moreover, closer positioning to Earth’s surface makes these satellites effective in the coverage of data connections. In February 2023, Marlink was awarded a Public Service Delegation contract to deploy broadband Internet and 4G/5G services via satellite networks, covering both urban and rural areas in French Guiana. In a 15-year agreement, Marlink and SES will leverage SES’s multi-orbit geostationary (GEO) and Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellite network to provide high-speed services to over 30,000 users across the French region.
The North American market is projected to contribute the most significant share from 2023 to 2028 in the SATCOM equipment market.
North America is expected to lead the SATCOM equipment market from 2023 to 2028 based on region. The North American part, particularly the US, presents a highly profitable need for SATCOM equipment. The US government has been actively investing in SATCOM to improve the quality and efficiency of satellite communication. Research and Markets
