Satellite Communication or SATCOM is the use of satellite technology in the field of communication. SATCOM provides communication capabilities over long distances and can operate under different forms of communication condition or circumstances. The services offered by SATCOM include internet, video calling, television, fax, and radio channels. It also helps in increasing the communication and information technology infrastructure in the far-flung areas where human access is not possible. SATCOM is backbone of space industry due to the rising emphasis on building and launching communication satellites.
The key factors propelling the growth of SATCOM Equipment market include the rising need for high throughput satellite services, growing fleet of autonomous and connected devices, and the increasing usage of internet of things (IoT) across the globe. Presently, different group of devices are connected through internet which include multiple smart devices such as toys, robotic vacuum cleaners, toasters, and door locks. With the emerging IoT, these smart devices are increasingly getting connected through actuators and sensors to collect information from multiple systems and take actions to enhance the efficiency and productivity. SATCOM technology plays a vital role in enabling new applications and business process that makes IoT a reality. SATCOM is benefitting the development of smart cities, as the government is focusing on IoT to accelerate smarter resource allocation and energy efficiency measures to help make cities more sustainable. In addition to this, the growing penetration of devices across the world, surges a demand for IoT across the globe. All these factors will have a positive impact on the growing demand of SATCOM equipments over the coming years. SATCOM in IoT offers numerous remarkable benefits such as reliability, facilitation of retail and mobile banking, rising use of sensor networks, enhance speed, cost, and integration. On the other hand, high maintenance and development of earth station infrastructure to support SATCOM devices might hamper the growth of the market
