Despite the United States spending less on military activities, the country’s consumption of satellite communications (satcom) is anticipated to maintain a strong % compound annual growth rate (CAGR) on satellite services used for military applications and % CAGR for the entire government.
-By 2020, the US government will be spending $ million more per year on satcom than in 2014. This will result in major opportunities for leading satellite service providers to experience significant growth over the forecast period.
-Additionally, Department of Information Systems Agency (DISA) will remain an important component for government spending on satcom, accounting for slightly over % throughout the forecast period.
-While military spending on satcom is expected to grow at a rapid place, non-military spending is expected to be largely stagnant. The non-military portion of this market is focused on small applications and emergency backup, and is thus less bandwidth demanding than the military portion of the market.
-The majority of the North American market is non-military focused, thus, it is subject to less growth than other regions, such as the Middle East and Africa. Regions with the most political tension have the highest likelihood of requiring military satcom from the US government.
