Major players in the satellite antenna market are Airbus SAS, Cobham PLC, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd., Elite Antennas Ltd., General Dynamics Corporation, Gilat Satellite Networks, Harris Corporation, Honeywell International Inc., Macdonald, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Space Star Aerospace Technology Applications Co. Lt, Viasat Inc, Inmarsat Global Limited, Kymeta Corporation, and Norsat International Inc.

The global satellite antenna market is expected to grow from $2.76 billion in 2021 to $3.06 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.85%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $4.83 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 12.05%.

The satellite antenna market consists of sales of satellite antenna devices by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) which is 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.

The main types of satellite antenna are flat panel antenna, parabolic reflector antenna, and horn antenna.The parabolic reflector antenna are used for domestic satellite television reception, terrestrial microwave data links, and general satellite communications.

The various components of satellite are reflectors, feed horns, feed networks, low noise converters, and others.Frequency bands of these satellites are C band, K/KU/KA band, S and L band, X band, VHF and UHF band, and other frequency bands.

These satellite antenna are used in space, land, and maritime.

North America was the largest region in the satellite antenna market in 2021.Asia Pacfic is expected to be the fastest-growing region in the forecast period.

The regions covered in this report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.

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 2010-2020, while the number is expected to rise to 10,000 by 2030.In 2018, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), launched 31 satellites from 7 countries including Canada, France, South Korea, the US, the UK, Finland, and India.

The payload consisted of 100 kg micro satellite, 5 kg nano satellites and 710 kg of CartoSAT – 2 for earth observation.

The development of ultra-compact satellite antennas for defense and combat purposes is a key trend in the satellite antenna market.Ultra-compact satellite antenna offers high data speed transmission for IP based voice and video transfer capabilities since it operates on multiple bands such as Ku, KA, X and Q.

Ultra-compact satellite antenna connects ground control stations to advanced ground combat vehicles while offering 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 program 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 defense technologies 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 enabled future product developments.

Flat antenna beam steering and semiconductor ship design technology required for antenna Tx/Rx controls are some 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.
