The global satellite antenna market grew from $3.06 billion in 2022 to $3.42 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.8%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, a surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, causing inflation across goods and services and affecting many markets across the globe. The satellite antenna market is expected to grow to $5.2 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 11.1%.
The satellite antenna market consists of sales of wire antennas, horn antennas, reflector antennas, and array antennas.Values in this market are ‘factory gate’ values, that is the value of goods sold by the manufacturers or creators of the goods, whether to other entities (including downstream manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors and retailers) or directly to end customers.
The value of goods in this market includes related services sold by the creators of the goods.
Satellite antenna refers to an apparatus designed to transmit or receive microwaves to satellites. Satellite antennas work by concentrating the satellite’s transmitting power into a selected geographical region on earth to avoid interference from other signals transmitted from outside of the designated service area.
North America was the largest region in the satellite antenna market in 2022.Asia Pacfic is expected to be the fastest-growing region in the forecast period.
The regions covered in the satellite antenna market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.
The main types of satellite antennas are flat panel antennas, parabolic reflector antennas, and horn antennas.The parabolic reflector antenna is used for domestic satellite television reception, terrestrial microwave data links, and general satellite communications.
The various components of a satellite are reflectors, feed horns, feed networks, low-noise converters, and others. These satellites’ frequency bands include C band, K/KU/KA band, S and L band, X band, VHF and UHF band, and others.These satellite antennas are used in space, land, and maritime navigation.
The rise in demand for small satellites is driving the satellite antenna market.Small satellites are cost-efficient and cheaper to launch while offering effective connectivity.
According to Euroconsult, a France-based satellite consulting firm, 1805 small satellites were placed in orbit between 2010 and 2020, while the number is expected to rise to 10,000 by 2030.
The development of ultra-compact satellite antennas for defence and combat purposes is a key trend in the satellite antenna market.The ultra-compact satellite antenna offers high data rate transmission for IP-based voice and video transfer capabilities since it operates on multiple bands such as Ku, KA, X, and Q.
An ultra-compact satellite antenna connects ground control stations to advanced ground combat vehicles while offering a seamless transfer of information and communication capabilities, which are vital for ground troops in a crucial mission. In 2021, ThinKom Solutions, a US-based satellite antenna manufacturer, was selected by the US Army for the supply of phased-array satellite terminals as part of a pilot programme which evaluates communications on-the-move (COTM) options for U.S. Army Armored Brigade Combat Teams (ABCT).
In 2020, Hanwha Systems, a South Korea-based defence technology manufacturer, acquired the business and assets of Phasor Solutions, a UK-based satellite antenna manufacturer.This acquisition enabled Hanwha Systems to strategically expand its product portfolio and enable future product developments.
Flat antenna beam steering and semiconductor ship design technology required for antenna Tx/Rx controls are some of the technologies included in Phasor Solutions’ product portfolio.
The countries covered in the Satellite Antenna market report are Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Russia, South Korea, UK, USA.
