U.S. to Steer Growth of Global Nanosatellite and Microsatellite Market as Space Research Spending Increases

Press release from: TMR

Nanosatellites and microsatellites have emerged as a vital, feasible, and cost-effective solution for space research, communication, and Earth observation. Transparency Market Research has found that players within the global nanosatellite and microsatellite market have been offering a number of turnkey solutions, such as data processing services, manufacturing services, and launch services, in order to stay competitive and enhance their market positioning.

Planet Labs, Inc., Innovative Solutions In Space (ISIS) Group, Lockheed Martin Corporation, RUAG Group, Clyde Space, Inc., GomSpace, Raytheon, Skybox Imaging, Inc., SpaceQuest Ltd., and Sierra Nevada Corporation are some of the leading and promising companies in this space.

“The U.S. has been one of the most attractive markets for nanosatellites and microsatellites and an increasing number of small and large players look to expand operations in the country,” the author of the TMR study finds.

An excellent example would be Lockheed Martin Corporation. Although this industry giant has a massive global presence, the company has been increasingly focused on developing advanced launch services in the U.S. aeronautics and space systems market. UK-based Clyde Space Ltd. and Denmark-based GomSpace are other prominent companies that have, of late, expanded their operations in the U.S., making the most of the country’s growing demand for space products.

Favorable Long-term Impact of Low Cost of Production and Development

The fact that nanosatellites and microsatellites find application in an increasing number of industry sectors is probably one of the most significant growth drivers for the market. Nanosatellites and microsatellites are used for navigation and mapping, in the education sector and for scientific research, for various commercial purposes, and in the military and defense. “These satellites are a much more feasible alternative to large satellites as they fulfil the specific research requirements minus the need for massive financial investments,” a lead analyst at TMR says.

“This factor will, however, have a high impact only in the short and medium term,” the analyst predicts. “In the long run, the saturation of the use of nanosatellites and microsatellites in these fields will result in a reduced impact on the global market.”

On the other hand, the impact of the lower cost of production and development of nanosatellites and microsatellites will be impressively high in the medium and long term, with the benefits not entirely reflecting in the short term.
