Based on Channel Type, the satellite modem market is segmented into MCPC modem and SCPC modem. The MCPC channel satellite module market is expected to grow at a high CAGR from 2023 to 2030. The growth of this category is due to the incomparable channel performance provided by these modems, which is a key requirement for high-performance data traffic applications, such as mobile communications, the Internet, and broadband services. MCPC satellite modules can be integrated with IP networks to provide seamless voice, video, and data traffic. Broadband internet services for business networks are possible with MCPC modem technology due to its high data rate over satellite technology.

Based on the Technology, the satellite modem market is segmented into Satcom Automatic Identification System (AIS), VSAT, Satcom-on-the-Move, Satellite Telemetry and Satcom-on-the-Pause. SOTM modem is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecasting. Satcom on-the-move (SOTM) terminals are increasingly being used in military and commercial systems. For military purposes, these terminals are primarily used for intelligent communication. SOTM terminals are used for broadband communications by sea ships, trains, planes, land vehicles, and other vehicles. However, in commercial systems, these terminals are mainly used for broadband internet services.

Based on Data Rate, the satellite modem market is segmented into Entry Level, Mid- Range and High Speed. Satellite modem data speed are expected to hold the largest share in the market from 2023 to 2030. This is due to the growing demand for high data and high-bandwidth applications such as mobile & backhaul and offshore connections. Satellite service providers enable internet, mobile, and data networks over long distances. To meet the high demand for data while managing operating costs, high speed data satellite modules are required. In addition, the growing demand from the commercial and military sectors for mobile communications at high data rates is advancing the market for high data satellite modems.

Based on End-User Industry, the satellite modem market is segmented into Energy & Utilities, Mining, Marine, Transportation & Logistics, Telecommunications, Military & Defense, Oil & Gas and Others.

The satellite modem transportation and logistics market are expected to grow at a very high CAGR at the time of forecasting. In transportation and logistics, there is an ongoing need to transfer real-time data, including vehicle location, traffic congestion, video and audio, temperature between rotting vehicles, and emergency notices. To transmit and receive such data, high-speed data satellite modes, which can establish a communication channel between the vehicle and the monitoring center, are used. Satellite modems also increase the accuracy and speed of the Global Positioning System (GPS).


The outbreak and spread of COVID-19 have affected the satellite modem market. Many industry experts believe the epidemic will subside by the end of the second quarter of FY2021. Considering the input from various industry experts from different phases of the satellite modem value chain including OEMs, suppliers, end users, and distributors and post-consultation and financing of various companies to the 2020 satellite ecosystem 2020, it. it is estimated that the market size of satellite modem has seen a decrease of 4-5% from 2019 to 2020. In some countries such as the US and the UK, the second wave of COVID-19 has affected the performance of satellite module companies due to the closure of manufacturing facilities. A few companies have experienced delays in potential order awards and order delays for US military customers. In the satellite modem market, COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the maritime and aviation industries.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
