This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market
Loading...

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Small Satellite Market is accounted for $2.80 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach $10.89 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 18.5% during the forecast period. Growing demand for earth observation imagery and analytics, economically feasible than conventional satellites and rise in the number of space exploration missions are driving the market growth. However, government policies in few regions are hampering the growth of the market.

Small satellites are alternatives at low-cost which have allowed educational institutions, non-profit groups and commercial enterprises to conduct missions in low-Earth orbit. These small satellites make it possible to conduct a variety of scientific investigations and technological demonstrations in orbit at a low cost, in a timely manner, and with relative ease.

Based on the subsystem, the payloads segment is going to have lucrative growth during the forecast period which can be attributed to their specific technology for each mission. Moreover, payloads cater to a wide range of applications which boosts the growth of the market.

By geography, North America is going to have high growth during the forecast period as it is the region with the highest adoption of small satellites and providing great opportunities for the growth of the market. The demand in the region is due to the growing digitalization across industries.

Some of the key players profiled in the Small Satellite Market include Adcole Maryland Aerospace LLC, Blue Canyon Technologies Inc., GomSpace Group AB, Kepler Communications Inc., L3Harris Technologies Inc., Millennium Space Systems Inc., Northrop Grumman Corporation, Planet Labs Inc., Sierra Nevada Corporation, Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd, Space Exploration Technologies Corp., Spire Global Inc., Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (Airbus SE), Swarm Technologies, Inc. and Thales Alenia Space.
