SpaceTec Partners conducted a comprehensive market analysis on behalf of an infrastructure-as-a-service provider, exploring trends, market sizes, and key opportunities for offering satellite communications ground segment services within their Special Economic Zones (SEZ) in Equatorial Africa.
Historically, applications in space were mostly related to Satellite Communication. Its growing market remains one of the key pillars of economic space activities. SpaceTec gained long-standing experience and relationships in the field.
The increasing population of SmallSats are a game-changer for satellite communication. Reusable rockets make launches into Low earth orbit (LEO) more affordable, which enables low-latency connectivity.
The potential of satellite communication is further unlocked through increasing demand for 5G connectivity. 5G providers are building coverage ecosystems, leveraging LEO broadband satellites as backhauls. Besides, satellites are likely to play a key role for Internet of Things (IoT). IoT constellations complement the limited connectivity of cellular networks.
Considered as “optical fiber for the skies”, laser communication can provide high-speed backbone connectivity for high-altitude and spaceborne constellations. With high safety, growing bandwidth capacity and lack of regulation, laser technology is expected to significantly impact the Satellite Communication market.
SpaceTec Partners have served a diverse set of Satellite Communication clients, supporting to drive and develop business, investigate dynamic markets and explore new opportunities:
- SpaceTec conducted various due diligences on investment and development opportunities in the area of satellite IoT and ground station networks
- We analysed the market potential and impact of new technologies brought by the NewSpace Revolution such as laser communication
