Optical Satellite Communication Market Statistics: 2027

Optical satellite communication is also referred as free-space optical communication (FSO). Light propagating in free space is used to wirelessly transmit data from computer networking or telecommunication systems, using free space as their mode of median for communication to provide optical data signals at high bit-rate. In addition, optical satellite communication provides several benefits such as lower deployment cost, easy construction of network topology, efficient use of network resources, and higher data rates, which are anticipated to boost the optical satellite communication market growth.

COVID-19 Scenario Analysis: 

  • Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to almost all countries around the globe, with the WHO declaring it a public health emergency. The global impacts of the disease are already starting to be felt, and expected to significantly affect the global optical satellite communication market in 2020.
  • Though governments have imposed lockdowns to contain spread of the virus, which has made businesses to shift to online mode for operations. There is an increase in use of mobile phone, owing to which there is a load on the telecommunication sector. Optical satellite communication helps to set up proper communication using high bit rate which can help the growth of the optical satellite communication market.  
  • Increase in multimedia services such as peer-to-peer video-on-demand and audio-on-demand increases the need for high network bandwidth. Optical satellite communication can provide high network bandwidth at a low cost and is more reliable, which boosts the market growth.  
  • Overall, the pandemic is expected to have a positive impact on the global optical satellite communication market.
