Market Poised for Growth as Industry Leaders Utilize Optical Links for Constellation Deployment Cambridge, MA – NSR’s newly released Optical Satellite Communications, 3rd Edition (OSC3) report projects a $3 billion cumulative revenue opportunity through 2030 for laser communication terminals (LCTs) in both space and airborne markets. The Optical Satcom market is largely equipment-centric, with a.
As a technology with the potential to impact both satellite and ground network operators, optical satcom is emerging as a contender and/or a complement to existing radio frequency (RF) communications infrastructure.
NSR’s Optical Satellite Communications report, released today, forecasts nearly $4 B in cumulative revenue over the 2018-2028 period for laser communication equipment in space. Largely driven by the impending wave of mega-constellations with inter-satellite links, the volume of production and subsequent deployment of Non-GEO satellites will drive revenue growth for equipment manufacturers.
