Global Airborne SATCOM Market is valued approximately at USD 5.9 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 5.3% over the forecast period 2020-2027. The Airborne SATCOM market is on the surging considering the global scenario. Airborne satellite communications (SATCOM) system is an integrated solution offering a reliable and constant in route & out route transmission of vital real-time information to support any airborne mission. An Airborne SATCOM includes multiple equipment such as transmitter, transceiver, receiver, antenna, airborne radio and modems & routers. The Airborne SATCOM market is primarily driven by surging number of aircrafts, rise in long-haul flights & passenger traffic, escalating number of high-throughput satellites and surging demand for customized SATCOM on-the-move solutions. The surging number of aircrafts is acting as a key driver for the development and growth of Airborne SATCOM market. According to the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), there are more than 440000 aircrafts which are operating on both domestic and international routes as of year 2019. These aircrafts precisely include helicopters, civil aircrafts, military jets, and small training aircrafts across the globe. Around 211000 units (48%) of these aircrafts were manufactured in the United States. Moreover, around 2441 aircrafts were manufactured worldwide among which 1746 aircrafts were specifically manufactured in the United States in the year 2018. Similarly, the worldwide production of aircrafts accounted for around 2658 units among which 1771 units were precisely produced within the boundaries of the United States. In addition, the presence of many multinational organizations such as Airbus, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, GE Aviation and United Technologies that are indulged in manufacturing and production of aircrafts & its components is also creating a lucrative opportunity for the demand of Airborne SATCOM market. For instance: In the year 2018, Netherlands based Airbus Corporation which is indulged in manufacturing of commercial aircrafts produced around 800 units of aircrafts among which 626 units of aircrafts belonged to the A320 variant in the United States. Similarly, in the year 2018, United States based Boeing Corporation which is another multinational aircraft manufacturer delivered around 806 units of commercial aircrafts to the aviation companies operating within and beyond the boundaries of the United States resulting in fueling the demand and adoption of Airborne SATCOM market. Similarly, China is on course to overtake the United States as the world’s biggest air travel market within the next three years, and still, the country’s appetite for aviation continues to grow exponentially. At present, China needs 6,810 new aircraft in the next 20 years, with a total value of USD 1.025 trillion, owing to the rising passenger throughput further augmenting the development and growth of Airborne SATCOM market.
