Momentous changes were already underway within the satellite industry when the COVID-19 crisis disrupted lives and businesses around the world. In 2020, segments of the satellite industry were hit hard, with rippling effects from the pandemic accelerating closures and sales.

However, the tides could be shifting, as growth opportunities now abound, and there is a lot more to be positive about for the satellite industry as we look forward to 2022.   What were viewed just a few years ago as unfeasible ideas or mere pipe dreams are now developing into real world projects.
