Global Satellite Ground Station Market Report 2023: Increased Government Investments in Space Agencies Presents Opportunities

DUBLIN, May 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The “Global Satellite Ground Station Market by Platform (Fixed, Portable, Mobile), function (Communication, Earth Observation, Space Research, Navigation), frequency, Orbit, End User (Defense, Government, Commercial), Solution and Region – Forecast to 2028” report has been added to’s offering.

The Satellite Ground Station market is projected to grow from USD 61.5 Billion in 2023 to USD 115.4 Billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 13.4 % during the forecast period.

Increased Deployment of satellites ground stations for serving Ground Station as a Service (GSaaS) users is driving the market.

The Low Earth Orbit (LEO) segment is projected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Based on Orbit, the Low Earth Orbit segment of the Satellite Ground Station market is projected to hold the highest growth rate during the forecast period. Ground stations most often employ the VHF (Very High Frequency) and UHF (Ultra High Frequency) bands for low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites, which orbit at heights of up to 2,000 KM above the Earth’s surface. These bands provide fast data rates and are ideal for LEO satellite communication. They are, however, susceptible to interference from other sources, such as terrestrial radio transmissions.

The C-band segment is projected to dominate the Satellite Ground Station market by frequency

Based on Frequency, the C band segment is projected to dominate the market share during the forecast period. Due to its ability to pass through clouds, rain, and vegetation, the C-band frequency is frequently employed in satellite communication and is therefore perfect for applications requiring dependable data transfer in inclement weather.

North America is expected to account for the largest market share in 2023

The Satellite Ground Station market industry has been studied in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Rest of the World. North America accounted for the largest market share in 2022. The US leads the market in North America with a large number of companies and startups operating in the industry. The country is also home to some of the world’s leading Satellite Ground Station manufacturers and operators. The market is expected to expand owning to the demand for satellite -based services such as communications, remote sensing and navigation.
