DUBLIN, September 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Added The Satellite IoT Communications Market – 2nd Edition report ResearchAndMarkets.com Offer.
This study examines the satellite IoT connectivity market. The investigation covers a total of 44 satellite IoT operators, including both the incumbent operators and all new LEO Smallsat constellations.
The global satellite IoT communications market is growing at a good, steady pace. Despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global satellite IoT subscriber base grew to over 3.9 million in 2021. The number of satellite IoT subscribers will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 40.3 percent to 21.2 million units by 2026.
Satellite connectivity provides a complement to terrestrial cellular and non-cellular networks in remote locations, particularly useful for applications in agriculture, asset tracking, maritime and intermodal transportation, oil and gas exploration, utilities, construction and government. Both established satellite operators and more than two dozen new initiatives are now entering the IoT connectivity market. This new study includes a total of 44 satellite IoT operators.
“Iridium, Orbcomm, Inmarsat and Globalstar are the largest satellite IoT network operators today,” says Johann Fagerberg, Chief Analyst. Iridium grew its subscriber base by 21 percent over the past year, topping the chart with 1.3 million subscribers. Originally a dedicated satellite operator, Orbcomm has evolved into an end-to-end solution provider, delivering services over its own satellite network and a reseller partner of Inmarsat and others. At the end of 2021, the company had 1.1 million satellite IoT subscribers on its own and Inmarsat’s networks.
At the same time, Globalstar reached 0.42 million subscribers. Other players with connections in the tens of thousands include Kineis in France and Thuraya in the United Arab Emirates. In addition to the established satellite operators, a number of new initiatives have recently appeared on the market. Examples of some high profile projects include Astrocast, AST SpaceMobile, CASC/CASIC, E-Space, Fleet Space Technologies, Hubble Network, Kepler Communications, Kineis, Ligado Networks, Lynk, Myriota, Omnispace, Skylo, Swarm Technologies (SpaceX) and Total. Many of these are based on concepts of nanosatellites in low Earth orbit.
While some rely on proprietary satellite connectivity technologies to support IoT devices, some are beginning to leverage terrestrial wireless IoT connectivity technologies including OQ Technology, AST SpaceMobile, Omnispace, Sateliot, Galaxy Space, Ligado Networks, Lynk, and Skylo Starlink (3GPP 4G/5G ); EchoStar Mobile, Fossa Systems, Lacuna Space and Eutelsat (LoRaWAN); Hubble network (Bluetooth); and Eutelsat (Sigfox). “Terrestrial technologies will become more important over the next five years, and collaborations between satellite operators and mobile operators exploring new possibilities of hybrid satellite-based terrestrial connectivity, like the recent agreement between T-Mobile and SpaceX, will become common.”concludes Mr. Fagerberg.
