Satellite Communication System Market Statistics, 2031

The global satellite communication system market was valued at $25.8 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $61.5 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 9.5% from 2022 to 2031.

In order to study and forecast the solar system and universe, artificial or human-made satellites are placed in orbit around the Earth or other celestial objects. The satellites are also used for communication purposes for the military, positioning technologies, television transmissions, and telephone calls, among others. Through the transmission of radio waves from a satellite and the collection and processing of data from antennas and transponders located at various points on Earth, satellite communication is made possible. To overcome the maximum distance signal transmission constraint associated with the traditional signal communication system, the space organisations are boosting satellite launches on a global scale. The satellites transmit audio, video, and data across numerous places across the world using digital and analogue transmissions.

Satellite Communication System Market

The increase in development of new satellite technologies is anticipated to fuel the growth of the global satellite communication market during the forecast period. For instance, in April 2021, Northrop Grumman announced successful docking of its Mission Extension Vehicle 2 to Intelsat 10-02 a commercial satellite. Mission Extension Vehicle 2 is a robot spacecraft that extends the life of satellites.

For military operations carried out in remote areas with insufficient and unstable communications infrastructure, satellite communication services offer secure bandwidth capacity with the advent of UAV satellite communication system for defense satellite communications system. In the forthcoming years, it is projected that the revenue from Fixed Satellite Services (FSS) utilized in government and military applications will increase significantly. Governments all over the world are integrating commercial satellite technology into their military communication networks. This is a result of the government's increased efforts to meet the growing communication needs for a variety of applications, such as Airborne Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (AISR) and Communications on the Move (COTM). These services need omnipresent and reliable coverage, which satellite services excel at providing.

The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) has counted 6,542 artificial satellites orbiting the planet as of January 2021, 3,372 of which are active spacecraft. Image, audio, and video data in the form of analogue and digital signals are transmitted across numerous nodes in a network by artificial satellites. The emergence of mobile satellites, low-Earth orbit (LEO), and the spread of reusable rocket vehicles for industrial, military, and aerospace uses have revolutionized the satellite communications (Satcom) sector.

The global satellite communication system market is expected to witness notable growth during the forecast period, owing to surge in demand for internet of things (IoT) devices for several businesses, including the automotive, defence, and healthcare sectors. Moreover, rise in demand for military and defense satellite communication system solutions and increase in adoption of satellite communication equipment in online streaming services, radio, and TV broadcast is expected to propel the satellite communication system market forecast during the forecast period.

However, interference in satellite data transmission and reception is one of the prime factors that restrain the global satellite communication system market growth. On the contrary, technological advancements in satellite missions is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the satellite communication system market during the forecast period.
