Satellite Market Overview

Satellite Market size has been segmented based on a series of factors that are inclusive of Mass, Subsystem, Application, NGEO Orbit, and others like End User, Frequency, and Region. The global satellite market is estimated to register a CAGR of nearly 19.23% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2024.

The global growth of the market is driven by various factors, such as the growing and expanded demand for LEO-based services followed by the propelling demand for Earth observation imagery and analytics. Also, the global market is likely to propel because of the increase in the number of space exploration missions. These factors are likely to emerge as major drivers for the global satellite market during the forecast period that will be ending in 2028.

 COVID Analysis

 The satellite market has been one of those markets that had been affected by the sudden outbreak of the novel coronavirus pandemic that hit the international borders in 2020. The market players have been facing losses due to the mismatch in the market forces of demand and supply that are responsible for maintaining market equilibrium through the global market premises.

 The market has been facing a series of issues and challenges that are hampering its ability to meet the rising needs of the target audience followed by the rising discomfort that is hampering the market skill to dwell amid the globally rising competition. The outbreak has been a major cause of concern and hence, the lack of skilled labor and resources is further, hampering the ability of the market manufacturers and producers. Also, the global market growth is at stake as the imposition of temporary and permanent lockdowns in various locations across the globe has either pushed the businesses to settle and work or pushed them to give up and shut their businesses because of non-functionality and losses. The space stations and other centers were non-functional and hence, there were no new developments to support the global needs and expectations that have been set for the forecast period that will be ending in 2028.

 However, the market players of the satellite market size during the forecast period that will be ending in 2028 are enhancing the funding and investment that will help carry the functions of the research and development departments and hence, reach what it takes and hence, help the market grow as per its predictions by the business chiefs for the forecast period.

 Market Dynamics


Earth observation services include processes like monitoring of agricultural fields, detection of climatic changes, followed by others like disaster mitigation, meteorology, and several other resources. There has been a high requirement for high-resolution Earth imaging that has increased across various market verticals. This is because the images can be used for various purposes like precise management of land, and other sources like water and forest.


The global government policies at the nation-state and international levels directly or indirectly are influencing the evolution of the satellite communications market, ecosystem, and industry. Currently, there is no comprehension regarding the global or domestic on-orbit regulation regime. There are propelling regulations that are related to the launch, re-launch, and re-entry of satellites in the spectrum. Also, the market is witnessing the emergence of products like remote sensing in the US market. For example, there are no regulations that are related to on-orbit activities, like rendezvous and other proximity operations, space-based Space Situational Awareness (SSA), or RF mapping.

 Technology Analysis

 For many developing countries, the government investments, generally in the research and development initiatives and startups, are seen not being witnessed as a way to address societal challenges but also introduce facilitation of the independence from imports, and hence, become a global provider of solutions in the global market sectors such as space. The global governments are also recognizing that they do not have access to a well-developed venture sector like the one in the US market, and so the governments provide venture capital (VC) funds.
