Land-based Deployment to Provide Future Opportunities for Market Vendors during the Forecast Period.

Several VSAT market players are focusing on the development of compact solution for land-based deployment for various applications such as satellite ground stations. The deployment of cloud-based ground stations is one of the major trends supporting the adoption of new VSAT technologies across different industry verticals. Moreover, the land segment is also likely to register second highest growth CAGR during the forecast period. This is owing to rising deployment of cloud-based broadcast technologies across different regions. For instance, in August 2022, TVU Networks announced the demonstration of its first cloud-native broadcast systems for 4K and 5G live video broadcasting. Such instances are likely to generate tremendous growth opportunities for market vendors during the forecast period.

Rising Demand from Military Remote Communications is Another Major Factor Accelerating the VSAT Market Growth.

The growing adoption of remote communication technologies across armed forces is one of the major factors expected to catalyze the market growth during the forecast period. The rising adoption of tactical communication technologies for military operations is another factor supporting the adoption of VSAT in military applications. For instance, in August 2020, the US Army awarded an additional contract worth US$ 20 million to Comtech Telecommunications to supply VSAT systems for mobile satellite equipment. Further, several companies are collaboratively working to deliver solutions of many armed forces. For instance, in November 2019, two satellite companies called NIC4 and Get SAT collaborated develop Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) satellite-communications solutions for the US Special Operations Forces deployed in Europe. Additionally, the growing military expenditure for the adoption of remote communication technologies among the armed forces. Such factors are likely to propel the demand for VSAT solutions across the military sector during the forecast period.
