Advent of 3D Printed RF Components to Create Better Business Opportunities
The increasing number of small satellite launches is a significant factor in promoting the SATCOM equipment market growth. Additionally, the growing demand for Ka and Ku band satellites will also help augment the market in the forecast period. This, coupled with the rise in need for observing the earth and rising need for better satellite communication, will also aid in the expansion of the market. Furthermore, the increasing need for internet access to suffice to the growing demand for satellite networks.
However, regulatory challenges concerning the rising number of proposed small satellite launch or related to component design may pose a significant challenge to the market. Nevertheless, the new optical technology for inter-satellite communication, high data rate communication equipment, and the advent of 3D printed RF components are expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for the market in the long run.
North America will Dominate Market with Increasing Number of Satellite Launches
As per region, the market is segmented into Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. Among these, the market is dominated by North America attributed to the rise in the number of satellite launches for 5G, thus driving the market in the U.S. Additionally, the market in Canada is engaging in the start of small satellites for research and development purposes, and this will further help this region continue dominating the market in the coming years.
On the other side, Asia Pacific is expected to earn a significant SATCOM equipment market share in the forthcoming years on account of the increasing investments in space programs by the government of India. Besides this, the launch of medium satellites in the nations of Germany and the UK will help the European market remarkably in the forecast period.
Vendors Engaging in Contracts with Space Agencies for Better Revenue Generation
Companies operating in the global SATCOM equipment market are engaging in product development and up-gradation for gaining momentum in the market and reaching a prominent position in the competition. Companies are also striving to gain contracts with space agencies for implementing the latest technology into SATCOM services for a better experience. The government is also supporting this growth by adopting SATCOM services and implementing them in their defense services by getting into agreements and contracts worth millions with the vendors.
