Global Space-Based Broadband Internet Market
Space-based broadband internet is the internet service provided utilizing communication satellites. The latest consumer-grade satellite internet service is provided to individual users through low Earth orbit (LEO), medium Earth orbit (MEO), and geostationary Earth orbit (GEO) that offer relatively higher speeds with the help of new satellites using Ku and Ka bands. Moreover, satellite internet constellations are being developed and launched to the LEO to enable low-latency connections from space.
Global Space-Based Broadband Internet Industry Overview
The space-based broadband internet technology is gaining huge traction from governments and commercial consumers due to the increase in demand for round-the-clock connectivity solutions for various applications. Though the current telecommunications technology has developed several tools and systems to deliver the services, they often get the backlash against their lack of serviceability for remote locations and unstable connections due to harsh weather conditions.
The global space-based broadband internet market is estimated to reach $52.33 billion in 2031, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.64% during the forecast period 2021-2031. The major driving factors for the huge revenues generated by the companies are the increase in demand for worldwide broadband internet access for information, entertainment, and commerce, and technological advancements toward developing next-generation communication satellite constellations.
Global Space-Based Broadband Internet Market by Application
The aviation industry is estimated to dominate the global space-based broadband internet market due to the high penetration rate in various countries that use broadband internet services solutions for smooth operations and in-flight connectivity services.
Global Space-Based Broadband Internet Market by End User
The commercial end users segment is expected to be the front runner in the global space-based broadband internet market mainly due to the wide range of product offerings that are being used for maritime, aviation, enterprise, and agriculture, among others.
Global Space-Based Broadband Internet Market by Region
North America is expected to account for the highest share of the global space-based broadband internet to market, owing to a significant number of companies operating in the region. The companies based in North America often supply international customers based in Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.
