Key findings in the report
The global military satellites industry is rapidly adopting strategies such as Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) and Private Finance Initiatives (PFIs) owing to the huge capital requirements and post deployment assistance required for these projects. Moreover, governments are increasingly adopting the capacity leasing approach on privately owned satellites, rather than deploying own systems. Hence, the military satellite industry is gradually undergoing a transition towards selecting commercial providers against defense suppliers for its programs.
At present, due to defense budget cuts in many countries around the world, Private Financing Initiative (PFI) is gaining significant importance, through which the satellite project will be built and owned by a private company. In return, the governments agree on guaranteed contracts for the satellite services throughout the satellites’ lifetime.
Enhancements such as hosted payloads are used for numerous applications of satellites mainly including military communication and ISR. With the increasing usage of Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) equipment in the military sector, the bandwidths of military satellites are being increased through hosted payloads from commercial satellite providers. Hosted payloads are components attached to commercial satellites, which are designed to function independently of the host satellites, while at the same time sharing its resources.
Countries such as the US, France, Germany among others, which contribute significantly to the global military satellites market, are experiencing substantial defense budget cuts. This is forcing the defense departments of these countries to realign their spending strategies on satellites. The North American and European regions account for an estimated 80% of global defense spending.
The key drivers behind recent military satellites market changes is mainly driven by the need for enhanced communication capabilities and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) requirements for armed forces across the world. The market is expected to be dominated by North America, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific.
