LEO Satellite Market Size

The Global LEO Satellite Market is projected to grow from USD 9.8 Billion in 2022 to USD 20.1 billion in 2027 at a CAGR value of 15.8% from 2022 to 2027. According to a recent study, a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite constellation outperforms a geostationary (GEO) satellite constellation in terms of reduced communication, quicker position time, better positioning accuracy, and lower deployment, construction, and maintenance expenses. As a result, using the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) constellation for navigation augmentation can lower mission costs, decrease position time, and improve localization accuracy. As a result, LEO navigation augmentation has received a lot of research attention and market growth throughout the forecast period.

Low-latency telecommunications, quicker orientation time, improved positioning accuracy, and reduced launching time, reduced construction and maintenance costs are among the benefits offered by low earth orbit (LEO) satellites, driving market expansion over the forecast period. Moreover, ease of adaptability, low price, sophisticated biomechanics, ease of construction and launching, mass production, and short lifecycles have fuelled LEO satellite market investment.

An LEO satellite deployed 600 kilometers above the Earth's surface with an average inclination angle of 30 covers about 0.45 percent of the Earth's surface. As a result of their low deployment altitude, LEO satellites can connect with a wide range of ground terminals, including specialized ground stations (GSs), 5G gNBs, ships, and other vehicles, and the Internet of Things (IoT) devices, supporting market growth. In addition, a rise in popularity for low-cost broadband among individual users in less developed countries and remote communities, where internet connectivity may be limited, is pushing investments in LEO constellations.

These constellations are driving market growth due to the advantage of LEO systems satellites' accessibility to the ground, allowing them to connect with minimum delay time for latency-sensitive operations, such as vocal communication. Furthermore, the lower distance between the Earth and the satellite provides less route distortion in satellite-to-earth communication systems, allowing for a more dependable link with less strength and antenna size. As a result, LEO satellites are often smaller and lighter than their GEO counterparts, making them less costly and driving market expansion.

The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on countries' economies worldwide. The production of LEO communications satellites, subsystems, and elements has been hampered. Satellite systems are crucial, but supply chain issues have stopped their production for the time being.

The major drawbacks of being deployed in LEO include encountering some air drag, which can result in orbit loss and shortened satellite life expectancies. Furthermore, the high expense of installing such an LEO-based system will limit market growth during the forecast period.

LEO Satellite Market: By Satellite Type

Based on the satellite type, the LEO satellite market is divided into small satellite, cube satellite, medium satellite, and large satellite. The small satellite segment is expected to be the largest segment in the market from 2022 to 2027. When compared with the huge conventional satellites at Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) and GEO, LEO deployments often include small or even nanosatellites with low production cost, dimensions, and weight (i.e., < 500 kg). As a result of these features, the launch expenses are reduced. On the other hand, small satellites must adhere to strict networking, processor, and power limits.

LEO Satellite Market: By Sub-Systems

Based on the sub-systems, the LEO satellite market is divided into satellite buses, payloads, solar panels, satellite antennas, and others.  The satellite antenna segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment in the forecast period of 2022-2027. LEO satellite antennas are intended for maximum performance across long distances and at incredible velocities. Their broadcast precision and dependability are essential to the growth of satellite communication and the expansion of space-based communications infrastructure.

LEO Satellite Market: By Application

Based on the application segmentation, the LEO Satellite market is divided into communication, earth observation & remote sensing, scientific technology, and others. The communication segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment in the forecast period of 2022-2027. The growth can be attributed to increased R&D activities for information exchange operations. Extremely sophisticated miniaturized onboard nano, micro, and compact subsystems, combined with innovative mission-compatible ground-station technology, are expected to provide improved quality communications networks.

LEO Satellite Market: By Region

As per the geographical analysis, the LEO satellite market can be classified into North America (the United States, Canada, and Mexico), Asia Pacific (India, China, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, and the Rest of Asia Pacific), Europe (Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, France, Spain, Netherlands, and Rest of Europe), Middle East & Africa (Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Rest of the Middle East & Africa) and Central & South America (Brazil, Argentina, and Rest of Central and South America).

North America (the United States, Canada, and Mexico) will have a dominant share in the LEO satellite market from 2022 to 2027. Increased investment in satellite equipment to improve the armed services' defense and monitoring capabilities and modification of existing interaction in military platforms, critical infrastructure, and enforcement agencies using satellite systems are expected to propel the LEO satellite market in North America.

Moreover, the Asia Pacific (India, China, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, and the Rest of Asia Pacific) region is expected to be the fastest-growing segment in the LEO satellite market during the forecast period. Growing demand for cost-effective strategies, migration of infrastructure from conventional to cloud-based solutions, increased demand for satellite broadband networks, and implementation of HTS and VHTS future technologies are driving market growth in this region.
