“Increasing Deployment of 5G Network to Contribute Healthy Growth”
The enhancement and improvement in communication networks have presented the pioneering 5G technology, which offers new applications and services through high gigabit speed. After 2G, 3G, and 4G mobile networks, the upgraded 5G network will provide an enhanced range of high-speed broadband services. 5G will have its application in high altitude platform systems (HAPS) and satellite technology. HAPS and satellite systems will be able to deliver high data rates to terrestrial wireless backhaul networks outside major urban as well as suburban areas. These factors together are expected to spur demand for 5G networks, which will, in turn, aid the expansion of the market in the forthcoming years. Furthermore, the development of smart cities and IoT through the deployment of low-power sensor networks such as 5G will subsequently enable the growth of the market. In addition, high security and robustness of 5G will be used for public safety and during mission-critical services, such as healthcare, smart grids, energy, and power utilities.
“Contract Between Lockheed Martin Corporation and the U.S. Air Force to Spur Growth Opportunities”
The increasing collaborations between key players and government organizations will bolster the small satellite growth in the foreseeable future. For instance, Raytheon Company (US) and the U.S. Air Force signed a contract with a valuation of USD 37 million to support anti-jamming efforts for satellite communications. Furthermore, the growing concerns regarding national safety and security will boost the small satellite trends during the forecast period. For instance,In November 2019,Lockheed Martin Corporation. and the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center signed a contract with a valuation of USD 3,300 million for support services on classified military communications satellites.
Moreover, the launch of an orbit surveillance satellite by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will boost the small satellite share in the forthcoming years. For instance, in 2019, the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) technology used by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). PSLV C-45 satellite is a low-earth orbit surveillance satellite, mainly launched for military purposes, and helps to monitor the locations of enemy radar sites deep in their territory.
“Surge in Satellite Communications to Facilitate Growth in North America”
North America was valued at USD 2.57 Billion in 2018 and is predicted to lead the market during the forecast period. The rising adoption of the triband antenna will have a positive impact on the market in North America. Furthermore, the introduction of SKYWAN technology by NASA, a unique hybrid modem which competes with MF-TDMA and DVB-S2X, allowing for real-time transmission with high throughput, the best transport per application will augment healthy growth of the market in the forthcoming years.
