Challenges and Restraints in the Satellite Communication Market {{ currentPage ? currentPage.title : "" }}

The global satellite communication (SATCOM) market size was valued at USD 27.56 billion in 2021 and is projected to grow from USD 29.98 billion in 2022 to USD 56.74 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 9.54 % during the forecast period. 

Satellite communication is described as the use of electromagnetic waves as a carrier signal to communicate between two earth stations via a satellite. It serves as a conduit for information between the earth and space. It refers to sending signals through satellite in the form of a beam of modulated waves between the sender and receiver antenna. It has a wide range of uses in radio transmission, the internet, voice communication, and weather monitoring. According to Fortune Business Insights

Data flow between machine control and production was previously dependent on terrestrial GSM systems, which is currently being replaced with satellite connectivity. In the aviation industry, satellite technology has proven to be an essential enabler for converting IoT connection. IoT devices help to improve the process in the aviation business by allowing real-time data to be exchanged with the processing division. It is also utilized in satellite connectivity to reduce processing time by transferring data between IoT devices and components. Thousands of artificial satellites are now orbiting the planet. These man-made satellites send and receive analogue and digital signals containing data, such as speech, photos, and videos, to and from one or more sites throughout the world.

Technological Development and R&D Activities to Drive Growth

One of the smallest 2-way satellite communication devices is a transportable SATCOM station, often known as a satellite communicator or hotspot. The device collects location data using an inbuilt GPS chip. When the SEND is activated, this data is sent through commercial satellites to a commercial monitoring agency, which then passes it on to the relevant reacting agency. People involved in hiking, mountain biking, climbing, sailing, and flying are typical users/purchasers of these gadgets. It is also beneficial to individuals who operate in remote locations.
