LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global satellite-enabled IoT market report. This research report also lists six other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The global satellite-enabled IoT market has a limited number of multinational and regional suppliers that offer heterogeneous products and services. As the market is in its growth phase, vendors are obliged to compete based on the invention, innovation, and upgrade of existing technologies. The other major characteristics that are closely related to the market are quality, cost, and reliability.

Competitive vendor landscape

According to the report, the global satellite-enabled IoT market is highly fragmented with the presence of many local and domestic players. As a result, there is intense competition among the market vendors across all regions on the basis of product differentiation, portfolio, and pricing and the competition in the market is expected to intensify in the coming years.

The market is expected to see substantial growth during the forecast period mainly due to the increasing dependence on the Internet and the growing market for connected devices or IoT. Vendors could experience a considerable demand for their products due to the increase in tension among neighboring countries and rise in the number of illegal activities across borders,” says Avimanyu Basu, a lead space research analyst from Technavio.

Existing key vendors must identify and respond to emerging new and small players in the market to ensure their long-term survival in the market. These players can offer optimum and integrated solutions to tap into the expanding market that is supported by the shifting focus of militaries to strengthen their army base with advanced and upgraded satellite-enabled IoT vehicles, aircraft, and ships.
