The Ground Segment Market Prospects covers the different application chains in the commercial and government ground segment, including Satcom applications, EO applications and user terminals for Satcom applications. For each of them, the report includes:

  • Identification of a technology/product roadmap to qualify expected changes.
  • Identification of external factors that will apply to the ground segment.
  • Review of key stakeholders, including established and start-up companies.
  • Quantification of the market (units, value) and forecast.

The report reviews historical data from the past 5 years, current data, and forecasts for the next 10-years of ground station units and user terminal inventory, such as the number of sold units and revenues generated by newly built units and equipment retrofit. In particular, the report provides granularity on the market revenues and number of new assets for:

  • Antennas (gateways and TT&C)
  • RF equipment.
  • Baseband equipment.

On the ground site side, it considers commercial teleports providing support to Satcom and EO applications/services, serving their own needs or third parties, out of Satellite Operation Centers (SOC) and Network Operation Centers (NOC).
