The ever-increasing number of people using the internet in every region of the world is leading due to production of an enormous quantity of data, which, in turn, is making the satellite spectrum increasingly packed and congested. The demand for satellite monitoring of the spectrum is being driven by this. According to Internet World Stats, there were around 5.2 billion people using the internet throughout the world in the year 2021. In addition, there is a rising use of extended connectivity, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), 5G, high-altitude platform station (HAPS), and non-geostationary orbit (NGSO) satellite systems, which has raised the need to access the spectrum in a variety of frequency bands.
The satellite spectrum monitoring market’s growth may be attributed to the increasing spectrum congestion that is occurring as a direct result of the development of technologies that are dependent on the internet. A further issue is that the expansion of satellite communication (SATCOM) is leading to an increase in signal interference. Additionally, reusable launch vehicles, air-breathing propulsion systems, 3D printed electronic structures and components, and air-breathing propulsion systems are some of the elements that contribute to the expansion of the industry.
The need for satellite spectrum monitoring systems is being also driven by the ever-increasing number of satellites launches that take place all over the world. As an illustration, there were around 7,389 separate satellites operating in orbit as of April 2021; this number was almost 30 percent greater in comparison to the year 2020. In addition, the year 2020 saw the launch of a record-breaking 1,283 satellites, making it the year with the largest total number of satellites launched.
The approach of monitoring the spectrum through satellite focuses mostly on local monitoring concerns. This makes it possible for individual stations to connect with one another and share data in order to achieve optimal performance. The information that is supplied by other monitoring stations is used to inform the decisions that are made at each station. If the information is incorrect, it will have a negative impact on the performance of the system as a whole. Because of this reason, firms currently working in the global market have access to a number of chances.
A cloud-based, satellite-based technique to monitoring the spectrum is now being implemented as a solution to the monitoring problem. This technology enables sensor nodes to immediately communicate monitoring data to the clouds. After that, it transports the multi-dimensional data using powerful cloud computing techniques that have great levels of flexibility and extensibility. When compared to the conventional spectrum monitoring network, the utilisation of a cloud-based monitoring strategy lessens the burden placed on communication connections while simultaneously raising the level of efficiency achieved by the performance of these links.
For example, in March of 2020, SatSignature launched the world's first cloud-based spectrum analyzer service. This service offers continuous monitoring, recording, and analysis of the satellite spectrum via web-based subscription packages. Users are granted on-demand access to spectrum monitoring from anywhere in the world thanks to this service.
Based on Region it is divided into: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East.
The North American market was estimated to be worth $1,291.2 million in 2021, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.0 percent between 2021 and 2030. This is owing to the significant presence of a big number of major firms in the region, which are actively involved in creating and delivering satellite spectrum monitoring solutions. The reason for this is that the region has a high concentration of essential players. Recent satellite launches for broadband and internet applications carried out by firms like SpaceX and Amazon will lead to increase use of wireless technologies, which will in turn make the unlicensed spectrum more congested.
The satellite spectrum monitoring market is divided into different segments: End-user, frequency, Solution, Region.
The end user market is divided into the following categories: Aerospace, Oil and gas, Maritime, Military, Government, Media and Entertainment. In order to keep one step ahead of the curve, capture those who are in violation, and find a solution to conflicts, government agencies need to have the most modern spectrum monitoring system. Additionally, the spectrum monitoring system assists satellite frequency regulators in determining which satellite communication signals are authorised and which are unauthorised, managing the satellite spectrum that is utilised in their respective countries, and helping to improve cooperation with other telecommunications regulatory agencies. Before establishing spectrum laws, it is also helpful for government entities to conduct analyses and get a better understanding of real-world circumstances in bands.
Based on Frequency the market is divided into the following segments: Very High Frequency (VHF), Ultra-High Frequency (UHF), Super High Frequency (SHF), and Extremely High Frequency (EHF). The SHF category brought in revenue of $946.0 million for the market in 2021, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.1% between 2021 and 2030. The SHF operates in the frequency range of 3–30 GHz, which is also where the majority of the frequency bands that are utilised for SATCOM fall. Due to the magnitude of the waves that occur in this band, the transmission of enormous amounts of data is made possible without being affected by the elements.
The introduction of 5G connectivity is another factor that contributes to the expansion of the industry in this category. It finds usage in a wide variety of applications, including weather radars, imaging radars, air traffic control systems, high-throughput satellite services, fixed satellite services, broadcast services, satellite uplinks and downlinks, and broadcast services, among others. Additionally, it contributes to more precise forecasting of the weather.
