A very impressive $17B in equipment revenues is anticipated and addressed by NSR’s Flat Panel Satellite Antenna Analysis, 6th Edition report. The report sees over 6M cumulative FPA shipments generating nearly $17B in equipment revenues over the next decade. The growing Non-GEO HTS Consumer Broadband market will yield nearly 5M in shipments alone, driven by the growing.
Space Situational Awareness (SSA), the commercialized service of monitoring orbit and warning operators, maybe the best market response to this litter challenge. Yet, while the risk and opportunity grow daily, the SSA market lags. NSR’s In-Orbit Servicing & Space Situational Awareness Markets, 4th Edition (IoSM4) report forecasts SSA services to grow from just $2 million to $282.
Discussing space and satellite market revenue opportunity, “Classical/traditional connectivity requirements are the largest revenue source for the NSR Global Space Economy analysis,” said [NSR]. “Right now, the entire sector is in a period of transformation – from largely complex, bespoke technology to a proliferated, distributed, serialized technology stack. Software-defined and software-centric, mass-produced, and a network-of-networks are proliferating.
Commercially, today’s Optical Satcom market is in the process of customer trials with equipment manufacturers dedicating intensive capital resources towards their production lines to meet the oncoming constellation and UAS demand. Within five years, a greater supply of space-verified and competitive laser communication equipment (for all sizes) will enter the market, as seen from planned.
[NSR] discusses the Satellite Ground Segment’s COVID-19 recovery in his SatNews article. The Satellite Ground Segment has been one of the hardest-hit steps in the value chain brought about by the pandemic. With many deployments and new deals halted due to lockdowns, equipment could not be shipped, and revenues were not generated. But COVID-19 also.
