Taiwan satellite suppliers call for an Android-like ecosystem as SpaceX pursues an Apple-like strategy

The success of SpaceX’s Starlink has helped Taiwan-based electronics manufacturers to tap into the international satellite market. According to Taiwan-based suppliers, SpaceX is Taiwan’s largest source of satellite-related orders. However, these suppliers indicated that SpaceX’s domination in the sector as well as its “Apple-like” closed ecosystem will offer limited long-term benefits for Taiwan’s supply chain, denting earlier hopes that the LEO satellite industry will replicate the successes seen in the notebook and smartphone sectors.
