Small Cell Satellite Backhaul Market By Technology (2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G), By Services (Professional Services, Integration Services, Network Services, and Equipment) - Growth, Future Prospects, and Competitive Landscape, 2019 -2027

Increasing Data Traffic will spur the demand for 5G and Small Cell Satellite in the Coming Years

The small global cell satellite backhaul market value surged from US$ 9.59 Mn in 2018 to US$ 14.04 Mn in 2027, with a CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast from 2019 to 2027. 

Robust growth in data traffic within the past few years has perturbed mobile operators to epouse new means of the communication network. Small cell satellite backhaul provides high efficiency, speed, and capacity, fulfilling the need for complex data transmission. Earlier, satellite communications were used only for hard-to-reach areas. In contrast, today, rapid increase in high-throughout data along with advancements in technology & improved economics have forced Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) to rethink satellite-based communication networks. Additionally, mobile operators can easily connect the rural and remote areas by adopting small-cell satellite architecture. 

Market Synopsis

Technology Analysis

5G Technology expected exponential growth during the forecast period.

5G is expected to witness robust growth during the forecast period. Improved battery life, increased data capacity, and low latency communication are some of the major benefits offered by 5G that attributed significantly to its excellent growth. Further, 5G will also help in digitalizing various industry verticals such as media & entertainment, healthcare, automotive, and other industries. For instance, on August 15, 2018, Hi3G Access AB modernized its transport network with 5G routers 6000 series to improve its security, scalability, and efficiency by partnering with Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson. Besides the advantages offered by 5G, its implementation requires wide-area coverage, reliability, and quick accessibility. Therefore, satellites proved to be the best solution for 5G, as they upgrade the performance of terrestrial networks in underserved areas cost-effectively. 

Some countries, such as India, South Korea, Japan, China, UAE, Australia, Mexico, and many other nations, have come up with new telecom plans for 5G deployment in the near future. For Example, in 2017, the Indian government established a 5G High-Level Forum (HLF) to articulate the vision of 5G and execute the action plans for the same. Further, the government also launched a program in March 2018 titled Building End-to-End 5G Test Bed.
