In recent years, the new LEO constellations have received much attention as a means of bringing ubiquitous Internet connectivity, including to rural areas. To this end, more than 1,000 small satellites have been launched into low Earth orbit in 2021.
This report provides an overview of the development trends of the satellite industry and its major sub-segment, the LEO constellations.
The study also provides an in-depth assessment of the key factors, including market drivers and challenges, influencing the satellite industry and the LEO constellation market.
The goals and objectives of this report cover the following questions:
- How has the satellite industry evolved in recent years?
- What are the key drivers and challenges for the satellite industry?
- What are the key technological advances catalysing the evolution of the LEO constellation market?
- What business models are expected to be adopted by incumbent satellite operators?
- What is the size of the LEO constellation market?

FTTR is expected to disruptively transform home broadband experience
The outbreak of pandemic has led to an inevitable surge in the use of digital technologies and placed broadband networks as an key enabler for various digital applications in home, including teleconference, online education, 4K / 8K ultra-high definition video, VR / AR games, etc. Since then the typical requirements of the connected home have evolved. An 8K video stream requires at least 150 Mbps of bandwidth, which is four times more than 4K. Applications such as live streaming, online classes, and live streaming require very low latency, typically 50 milliseconds or less. In addition, home broadband connections need to be capable of supporting multi-service concurrent scenarios. High-quality Internet has become an indispensable part of people's lives, work, and entertainment. Fiber optic cable is the most preferred transmission medium in networks for its superior bandwidth, faster speed, and enhanced reliability. Fiber to the room (FTTR), which extends fiber connectivity from the "last mile" to the "last meter", offers customers a premium full fiber connection, enabling to meet network requirements of various home applications.
