Impact of Russia-Ukraine War Implication

The war crisis and sanctions have put a strain on global investment, trade, and economic activity. Therefore, skepticism and uncertainty remain prevalent regarding the conflict, its potential reach, and its longevity. Accordingly, the restoration of normal relations among partners could prove be a sign of improvement. There is hardly any sector that the war has left untouched, especially aggravating the business landscape of sectors ranging from aerospace to oil & gas. Amidst prevailing challenges, stakeholders are gearing to turn adversities into opportunities. However, soaring military aid for Ukraine could provide impetus to stakeholders. Meanwhile, it is to be noted that the relevant sanction could augment operating costs and disrupt industries.

Market Drivers

Advent of 3D Printed RF Components to Create Better Business Opportunities

The increasing number of small satellite launches is a significant factor in promoting the SATCOM equipment market growth. Additionally, the growing demand for Ka and Ku band satellites will also help augment the market in the forecast period. This, coupled with the rise in need for observing the earth and rising need for better satellite communication, will also aid in the expansion of the market. Furthermore, the increasing need for internet access to suffice to the growing demand for satellite networks.

However, regulatory challenges concerning the rising number of proposed small satellite launch or related to component design may pose a significant challenge to the market. Nevertheless, the new optical technology for inter-satellite communication, high data rate communication equipment,  and the advent of 3D printed RF components are expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for the market in the long run.
