Military Satellites Market to Reach $14.37B in 2016


Reading time ( words)

The military satellites market is set to be worth $14.37 billion in 2016, resulting from several major contracts in the United States, Israel and Russia and continuing satellite fleet modernization in China and India, according to a new report by market analyst visiongain.

"National governments’ ever-greater demands for military satellite bandwidth to ensure information superiority will radically grow and alter the military satellite market in the next decade. So great is the need for military data that it is increasingly transmitted through commercial satellites," said Theo Howard, visiongain's defense analyst and the author of Military Satellites Market Report 2016-2026.

In fact, approximately 80% of the US’s military data is currently transmitted via commercial systems. A single Reaper drone flying over Afghanistan uses several times more bandwidth than was used by the United States in the entire 1991 Gulf War. Meeting this demand is unsustainable within the current military satellite paradigm. The era of multibillion dollar sole-purpose military spacecraft is coming to an end. The future of the military satellite market is in ever-smaller platforms such as microsatellites and increased integration with the burgeoning civilian space sector which has pioneered several technological advancements catching the eyes of military satellite procurers in the process. The global military satellite market will grow slowly in the first three years of the forecast period as the United States reduces its spending on space-based systems as a result of budgetary sequestration. As this pressure eases, smaller satellites development cycles begin and launch costs will reduce. The global market will grow strongly as smaller national markets expand."
