DUBLIN–()–The “Europe Space-Based Laser Communication Market – Analysis and Forecast, 2023-2033” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The Europe space-based laser communication market is projected to reach $ 1.31 billion by 2033 from $253.9 million in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 10.55% during the forecast period 2023-2033.

The introduction of second-generation satellites with intersatellite links (ISL) has resulted in a notable increase in the market for space-based laser communication in Europe. Modern technologies that improve communication performance both on Earth and in space, such as artificial intelligence (AI), electronically steered antennas (ESAs), component miniaturization, and ISLs, are primarily driving this rise.

Europe is one of the prominent regions for the growth of the space-based laser communication market. A consortium of prominent European space and telecommunications companies, comprising Airbus Defense and Space, Eutelsat, SES, and Thales Alenia Space, has joined forces to submit a bid for a proposed satellite constellation that aims to rival SpaceX’s Starlink system. With the European Union (EU) taking the lead, the project will receive a substantial funding commitment of $2.64 billion in 2023. Additionally, the project is expected to secure further financial support from the European Space Agency and private investments, bolstering its overall funding capacity.

Prominent firms that are creating massive constellations in low Earth orbit (LEO) and medium Earth orbit (MEO), such OneWeb, SpaceX, and Amazon’s Project Kuiper, also have an impact on the market’s trajectory. 2023 will see the integration of laser terminals by low Earth orbit satellites, such those operated by Starlink, into a constellation with optical intersatellite connections (OISLs), producing a strong mesh network in orbit.

When it is fully deployed, Telesat’s LightSpeed constellation also intends to include optical satellite links, while OneWeb is considering include optical links in its second phase of rollout. Inter-satellite links are made easier by the inherent nature of Amazon’s Kuiper constellation.

To bring cutting-edge and novel products, major participants in this industry, such as Tesat-Spacecom GmbH & Co., SKYLOOM, Bridgecomm, and Mynaric, are substantially investing in research and development.
