Airborne Ka-Band SATCOM Market Outlook – 2027 

The global airborne Ka-band satellite communication (SATCOM) market is experiencing a significant growth due to increasing aircraft fleet globally. Airborne SATCOM is widely used by commercial, government, and defense organizations to deliver effective broadband communication services to aircrafts operating at high speeds. Ka-Band SATCOM operates at a frequency range of 26.5 GHz to 40 GHz. Airborne SATCOM are highly flexible systems that meet the operational and maintenance requirements of different aircraft systems such as fixed wings or rotary wings aircraft. Mission & business critical demands for audio, video, and high-speed data services on aerial platforms is fulfilled by broadband communication via satellite, made possible only by airborne SATCOM. 

COVID-19 scenario analysis: 

Airborne SATCOM providers are facing short-term operational issues due to government-imposed lockdown in order to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The delays in projects due to supply chain disruption due to COVID-19 outbreak, is draining organizations of their financial resources that will hamper supply & procurement of SATCOM systems by military agencies as well as civil agencies.

The halt of ongoing process of installation or upgradation of SATCOM systems due to lack of workforce globally will take a toll on airborne SATCOM price & demand.

Aviation industry is experiencing financial crisis due to travel bans & grounding of airlines owing to the government initiatives in the wake of COVID-19. 

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers and impact analysis

Surge in usage of SATCOM transceiver, increase in demand for integration of newer generation SATCOM, and rise in adoption of customized SATCOM on-the-move solutions are the factors that drive the global airborne Ka-band SATCOM market. However, cybersecurity issues and high cost of satellite services hinder the market growth. On the contrary, ultra-compact SATCOM terminals for tactical UAVs and need to enhance passenger experience present new pathways in the industry.

The global airborne Ka-band SATCOM market trends are as follows:

Rise in adoption of customized SATCOM on-the-move solutions

The demand in new aircrafts can be attributed to the deployment of advanced airborne SATCOM systems across commercial & military applications. The growing fleet of commercial & combat aircraft, increasing long-haul flights & passenger traffic increase demand for customized SATCOM on-the-move solutions. Further, the higher frequency of the Ka-band provides a higher data transfer rate, and the lower cost of bandwidth has made it the preferred choice of new entrants in SATCOM market. For instance, in 2020, Gogo Inflight Internet (in-flight internet service provider headquartered in Illinois, US) unveiled multi-spectrum antenna solution for satellite communication that can cost effectively covert Ku-band antenna into a Ka-band antenna. This multi-spectrum SATCOM solution provides flexibility to integrate latest satellite technology, since many next-generation satellite deployments are found in the Ka-band. Such rise in adoption of customized SATCOM on-the-move solutions is expected to drive the growth of the airborne SATCOM market.
