The global satellite communication industry, which had $56.01 billion in revenue in 2019, is expected to show a CAGR of 9.2% from 2020 to 2027 and hit $99.58 billion by 2027, according to a new report from Allied Market Research. In this opening session, we will look at what are some of the growth strategies, opportunities and challenges in the coming years.

As the mature satellite industry evolves, major satellite operators continue to wrestle with their transformation from providing broadcast delivery of regionalised services, into a fast-growing, constantly evolving slice of the global telecommunications sector. How are the metrics different when moving into the broadband connectivity space? How are the operators planning to integrate their satellite capabilities with terrestrial telecoms technology? How will this impact the affordability and accessibility of satellite broadband services in the future? Will the industry see the same growth cycles return from 5 to 10 years ago?

It is projected that new satellite markets anticipate no less than 1,700 satellites on average to be launched per year by 2030 as new entrants and incumbents increase their investment in space. Manufacturers see new opportunities driven by fast-growing constellations of small satellites and growing activities of commercial and government users worldwide. In this session, we will look at how manufacturers are planning to scale up their production and extend capabilities through flexibility to cope with market changes.
