The global military SATCOM ground terminal market is expected to value at around US$ 5 Bn in 2019, and is expected to register a CAGR of 6.3%. The global military SATCOM ground terminal market is segmented on the basis of product, technology, and region.
Global Military SATCOM Ground Terminal Market: Introduction
Military SATCOM ground terminals play a vital role in global military communication system. These ground terminals serve as an anchor station for wide-area satellite communications between the ground control segment or reception and the deployed terminals.
Global Military SATCOM Ground Terminal Market: Dynamics
Factors driving market growth include increasing demand for communication network systems that can receive and broadcast information with improved reliability during out-of-area missions, coupled with rising war-like situations in some countries around the globe. This is resulting in increasing demand for convoys of armored vehicles equipped with satellite communication systems for essential battlefield situational awareness during missions.
Rapidly increasing electronic threats against satellite communications and growing cybersecurity concerns in the military sector is resulting in increasing government spending on reliable and secure communication networks and systems
According to Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, the federal government of the US spent US$ 14 Bn on cyber security in 2016
Growing unexpected emergency situations in remote areas where environment can limit the availability of communications for the military is resulting in increasing demand for advanced communication systems that are designed for easy set-up and can operate in harsh environmental conditions
However, high cost of R&D activities and budgetary constraints for players in developing countries are major factors expected to restrain market growth
Global Military SATCOM Ground Terminal Market, Analysis by product:
On the basis of product segmentation, the antenna segment is expected to contribute major revenue share, and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. The transceiver segment is expected to witness highest CAGR of 6.5%, owing to various advantage of offered by the transceiver such as transceiver can both transmit and receive digital signals at same time.
Global Military SATCOM Ground Terminal Market, Analysis by Technology:
On the basis of technology segment, the VSAT segment is expected to contribute major revenue share, and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. The SATCOM on pause segment is expected to witness highest CAGR of 6%.
Global Military SATCOM Ground Terminal Market, Analysis by Region:
The North America market accounts for highest revenue share due to major technological advancements led by substantial investments made into R&D activities and initiatives. Moreover, increasing demand for unique satellite communication needs and government initiatives to drive adoption of wireless communications is expected to drive growth in the years to come.
United States Department of Defense has been increasing interest on communications on-the-pause SATCOM terminals that are required to utilize the Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) constellation of satellites
In addition, organizations such as NASA and Space Exploration Technologies Corp., located in the US, are developing new systems that are expected to meet the growing demand for satellite communication solutions over the forecast period. In the US, demand from military and defense sector has been increasing mainly for navigation, communications, and spy satellites.
Government organizations in the US such as Department of Defense, Ministry of Defense, and Federal Aviation Administration, encourage the use of modern communication systems to enhance safety in military operations
In July 2018, Comtech Telecommunications Corp., which is a telecommunications equipment company, received a contract from the US Army for over US$ 2.6 Mn. This contract is for Ku and Ka-band high-power traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs) for a transportable satellite communications ground system.
According to a report recently published by NATO, the US continues to top the world’s list for military expenditure with US$ 610 Bn in 2017, which accounted for 40% of global spending
Revenue from the Europe market is expected to grow significantly, owning to government focus of countries such as Germany, France, and the UK in the region on investments for upgradation of equipment and military satellite communications
In September 2018, Phasor – developer of leading, enterprise-grade electronically-steerable antenna systems – and Kepler – a Low-Earth orbit (LEO) satellite operator and telecommunication services provider announced successful tests between Kepler’s first in-orbit LEO nanosatellite and Phasor’s wideband electronically-steered antenna
In December 2013, the European Council ensured to provide reliable, secure, and cost-effective satellite communication services through concrete projects supported by European Defense Agency. European Council initiated the preparation for the next generation of Governmental Satellite Communication through the close cooperation between the Member States, the European Commission, European Space Agency and European External Action Service.
However, countries in Europe are recovering from economic pressure, and have also shown intentions to cut their respective defense budgets; military spending in Europe was 2.2% lower than in 2016
Asia Pacific has been identified as the most attractive region for the forecast period, and governments of countries such as India, China, South Korea, and Japan are projected to invest substantially for enhancement of their respective defense systems
China and India are estimated to be the most profitable markets for military SATCOM ground terminals owing to growing terror activities and border disputes that have been escalating in the recent past
Military expenditure by China, which was the second-largest spender in 2017, increased by 5.6% to US$ 218 Bn
DSN Corporation is a joint venture between satellite operator SKY Perfect JSAT, technology company NEC, telecommunications provider NTT Communications, and civil engineering company Maeda Corporation. In 2017, The Japanese Ministry of Defense awarded a contract to DSN Corp. to secure communications to the armed forces and government users in Japan and surrounding areas, as well as forces deployed abroad.
