Global Maritime VSAT Market Overview

Maritime VSAT Market size is expected to register a CAGR of 13.69% during the market forecast period. The maritime VSAT market was valued at 2.78 billion in 2022, and it is projected to reach 7.04 billion by the end of 2030. Maritime very small aperture terminal acts as a ground station for the satellite to transmit and collect data from the smaller than 3.8 meters. It can also be operated as a ship in the sea. VSAT has an indoor unit used as a modem and an outdoor unit that sends/receives signals. The main motive of maritime VSAT is to make a sure high-speed transmission.


The maritime VSAT market will see substantial growth in the coming years. Satellite-based connectivity plays a big role in the maritime industry. There is a need for easy and continuous real-time communication between the passengers, ship owners, on-ground staff, and crew. The VSAT Technology helps them to communicate easily. Before, the shipowners have relied on L-band connections for communication, but now the focus has shifted towards the VSAT broadband services. VSAT can fulfill the demand for high-speed broadband that can support online streaming, downloading, and other things. Additionally, satellite broadband allows the operators to enhance the daily operations, increase profits, and give a better life to the crew members.


The broadband service also allows tracking the valuable containers in real-time‚ÄĒall the factors contributing to the¬†maritime VSAT industry growth.¬†The maritime VSAT is now widely used in commercial ships and navies. The navies and ship owners are upgrading their systems with the existing systems to get advanced features. The importance of maritime VSAT is immeasurable to the maritime industry as it allows communication between the onshore and offshore for better operation. The¬†maritime VSAT¬†industry¬†trends¬†are expected to increase due to application in military and civil maritime. As VSAT allows real-time communication for operations, the large data transfer becomes easier. The VSAT Technology uses IP Technology that enables the instant and reliable transfer of voice, data files, and video.


COVID-19 analysis


The coronavirus outbreak began in Wuhan city in 2019 and rapidly got transmitted globally. The coronavirus outbreak caused a global pandemic in just a few months and was declared a global pandemic by The World Health Organisation (WHO). The World economy is down, and the businesses are struggling. The COVID-19 pandemic affected global markets as the governments have imposed a lockdown. The virus's rapid spread slowed down all activities, and due to travel restrictions, many Industries are facing problems. Due to this, the world trade organization predicts that world trade will fall by 13-32% in 2020 and then will have a negative impact on the economic activity around the world. The shipping industry is also facing large-scale disruptions. The shipping industry is dependent on human interaction and travel; that is why the maritime VSAT market growth has declined directly and indirectly due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chief Variables Existing in the Market

  • Drivers

Many drivers boost the maritime VSAT market growth. The application of the Maritime VSAT Market offers safety and communication. It also provides file distribution, internet access, database access, and other features and is one of the major drivers of this market trend. Additionally, the upgradation of existing communication systems is also one of the drivers in the market. The traditional technology had a limit, and it didn’t offer many features like VSAT. So the requirement of high-speed broadband and the adoption of real-time tracking is a contributing factor in this market. According to the Asia Pacific satellite communication council, Asia is expected to account for $800 million for the satellite communication services by 2021.

  • Opportunities

The increasing advancement in the technologies such as an auto-stabilized ground terminal, stable and resistant materials, multi-frequency antennas, and high-speed modems will bring opportunities for the maritime VSAT market. Additionally, the rise in availability of satellite services that offer Ku-band for VSAT will boost demand for the larger bandwidth connection. Furthermore, the lower cost bandwidth will also generate opportunities for the maritime VSAT market revenue.

  • Restraints

One of the major restraints that hamper the maritime VSAT market growth is the cybersecurity breaches and the connectivity problems associated with the VSAT system. As criminals can access crucial data through the system, it is a major concern. 

  • Challenges in Market

One of the major challenges in the maritime VSAT market is that the underdeveloped regions haven’t adapted to the advanced feature. The key players are trying to overcome these market challenges and boost demand. The maritime VSAT industry is expected to grow at a faster rate during the forecast period.
