According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Satellite Cables and Assemblies Market is accounted for $259.77 million in 2021 and is expected to reach $1151.27 million by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 23.7% during the forecast period. Satellite Cables and Assemblies grasp a vast potential for satellite data service providers, smallest service providers, remote sensing service providers, technical service providers, and investors. Satellite cables and assemblies are inherently balanced and provide better mechanical reliability than the conventional cables for transmitting signals, supplying power, or sending earth images.
Rising Introductions of Small Satellites & Space Exploration Missions
An upsurge in the introductions of satellites into low earth orbit (LEO) particularly small satellites, which populate the 500-2,000 km band, is a major driver of the market. LEO satellites offer rapid communication, lower latency, and higher bandwidths per user than geostationary satellites, which account for the rising interest. Many companies have proposed or are implementing plans to build satellite constellations. Starlink had 356 satellites in orbit. SpaceX (US) is also in the race to deploy small LEO satellites. Amazon filed for launching 3,236 spacecraft in its Kuiper constellation and appeared to be progressing with plans to move its growing team into new facilities.
The high cost incurred in the development and maintenance of earth station infrastructure is one of the major factors hindering market growth. Most of the required components are typically custom-fabricated or purchased from commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) vendors, which is expensive. Besides, the design, development, and construction of wiring and assemblies and their components require several hours of work by trained personnel. The level of skill required itself poses a significant barrier to entry. Significant investments are required in the R&D, manufacturing, system integration, and assembly stages of the value chains of these systems.
Satellite Wiring Demand for Interconnect Solutions
Interconnect and cabling systems are used in the satellite industry, owing to rising demands for high- throughput, ruggedness, small size, and less spacecraft weight. Signal speed and integrity are essential for effective communication among spacecraft components. Cables - the lifeline of data transmission - are often run through very tight spaces in the spacecraft. For cables to reliably maintain signal integrity, they need to be flexible, and they need to be tough. Interconnects offer the best combination of solid mechanical durability and excellent signal integrity for spacecraft component connections.
Concerns Over Space Debris
Space debris refers to the uncontrolled and unwanted fall onto the earth of no longer functional space vehicles or parts of any size. Since the beginning of human activities in space, the number of variously defined objects in orbit around the earth has increased exponentially. The trend is up now more than ever with the new wave of small satellites. Space debris may prove to be a hazard for small satellites, which may, in turn, increase the amount of debris owing to collision or system failure. Besides the risks of collision with flying space vehicles, there is a growing concern for earth impacts since debris, by definition, is uncontrolled and may survive atmospherical re-entry friction falling almost anywhere when eventually reattracted by gravity. This is a significant threat in this field and is under research by various space agencies.
Large Satellites segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
Satellites that weigh >1,000 kg are named large satellites. Administration space agencies dominate the majority of the large satellite market. The heaviest artificial objects to reach lower earth orbit mainly include space stations and various upper stages of rockets. The upsurge in space platforms and deep space explorations are motivating the usage of large satellites.
The Cables segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Cables are used in satellites that are gradually being accepted in modern communication technologies, miniaturization, and deep space exploration. The introduction of wireless satellite internet and the development of miniature hardware systems are exploiting numerous opportunities in the field of satellite-enabled communication. Cables incorporate multiple layers of wires, insulation, and fillers, which limits heat dissipation.
Region with highest share:
The North America is projected to hold the highest market share. The US government is gradually investing in advanced satellite technologies to enhance the quality and effectiveness of satellite communication. The increasing investment in satellite equipment to enhance the defense and surveillance capabilities of the armed forces, modernization of existing communication in military platforms, critical infrastructure, and law enforcement agencies using satellite systems, are key factors expected to drive the satellite cables and assemblies market in North America.
Region with highest CAGR:
Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR. Europe has the second-largest public space budget in the world, with numerous active satellite R&D programs and manufacturing facilities spanning different European countries. The increasing budget toward R&D, especially in areas, like materials and satellite manufacturing technologies, is propelling the growth of the market in Europe. The presence of a large number of satellite manufacturers locally is helping the European customers to launch their satellites at relatively cheaper costs.
