There is no secret that ‘times are hard’. Today is especially hard for early-stage pre-revenue technology ventures. The satellite communications sector has seen LEO constellations come into and out of viability as funding runs out. It should therefore be no surprise that one of their other ‘key enabling technologies’ Flat Panel Antenna (FPA) ventures are.
“I don’t envy a flat panel antenna manufacturer today,” sums up NSR President and COO Brad Grady. “There’s lots of bumps in the road in order to get to success.” One bright spot in the antenna market, he says, is the government and military vertical. In the antenna market, where commercial use cases, especially consumer.
COTS Usage and Reusable Launch Vehicles Enable Solid Constellation Growth over the Next Decade Cambridge, MA– March 16, 2022- NSR’s newly released Constellations Market Assessment: SATCOM & EO, 4th Edition report finds Satellite Constellations positioned to generate $235.2 Billion in revenue across Satcom & EO segments. COTS usage (commercial-off-the-shelf) components and launch reusability are key.
The satellite industry continues to show remarkable changes, with new evolutionary technologies being launched in the space and ground segment consistently. The demand for internet connectivity will continue to rise as the COVID-19 pandemic pushes digitalization and forces people to work from home. For the Flat Panel Antenna market, this means existing and new FPA.
NSR’s Flat Panel Satellite Antenna Analysis, 6th Edition report, released today, sees over 6 million cumulative FPA shipments generating nearly US$17 billion in equipment revenues over the next decade. The growing Non-GEO HTS Consumer Broadband market will yield nearly US$5 million in shipments alone, driven by the growing number of HTS constellations expected over the.
