The nanosatellite and microsatellite market is projected to grow from an estimated USD 1.21 Billion in 2017 to USD 3.49 Billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 23.7% during the forecast period, from 2017 to 2022. The base year considered for the study is 2016.

Objectives of the study:

  • To determine and forecast the global nanosatellite and microsatellite market based on component, mass, application, vertical, and region from 2017 to 2022, and analyse the various macro and micro-economic factors that affect market growth
  • To forecast the size of market segments with respect to four main regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and RoW (Middle East & Africa (MEA) and Latin America)
  • To provide detailed information regarding the major factors, such as drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges influencing the growth of the market
  • To strategically analyse each submarket with respect to individual growth trends, prospects, and contribution to the total market
  • To analyse the opportunities in the market for stakeholders by identifying high-growth segments of the nanosatellite and microsatellite market
  • To profile key market players, provide comparative analysis based on business overviews, product offerings, regional presence, business strategies, key financials, with the help of in-house statistical tools to understand the competitive landscape
  • To track and analyze competitive developments, such as mergers & acquisitions, product developments, partnerships & collaborations, and Research & Development (R&D) activities in the market

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the nanosatellite and microsatellite market size begins with the capturing of data of key vendor revenues through secondary research such as annual reports, white papers, certified publications, databases such as Factiva and Hoovers, press releases, and investor presentations of nanosatellite and microsatellite solutions and service vendors, as well as articles from recognized industry associations, statistics bureaus, and government publishing sources. Vendor offerings were also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentations. The bottom-up procedure was employed to arrive at the overall global nanosatellite and microsatellite market size from the revenues of the key market players. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments, which were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key individuals, such as Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), Vice Presidents (VPs), directors, and executives. Data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments.

The breakdown of the profiles of the primary participants is depicted in the figure below:

The nanosatellite and microsatellite market is projected to grow from USD 1.21 Billion in 2017 to USD 3.49 Billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 23.7% from 2017 to 2022. The major factors expected to drive the growth of the market include the low manufacturing cost of miniature satellites, high demand for miniature satellites for earth observation applications, and increased investments in nanosatellite and microsatellite technologies.

The nanosatellite and microsatellite market has been segmented based on mass into 1kg-10kg (nanosatellite) and 11kg-100kg (microsatellite). The 1kg-10kg (nanosatellite) segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. Based on application, the market has been segmented into communication, earth observation and remote sensing, scientific research, biological experiment, technology demonstration and verification, academic training, mapping and navigation, and reconnaissance. The Earth observation and remote sensing segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the market during the forecast period. Based on component, the market has been segmented into hardware, software and data processing, service, and launch service. The software and data processing segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period.  Based on vertical, the market has been segmented into government, civil, commercial, defense, energy & infrastructure, and maritime & transportation.

North America is expected to be the largest market for nanosatellites and microsatellites during the forecast period, owing to the high demand from NASA and the U.S. Department of Defense, as well as research organizations and companies in the telecommunication sector. The nanosatellite and microsatellite market in Europe is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period, due to an increase in the demand for miniature satellites in missions to obtain data pertaining to Earth observation and scientific exploration. The European Space Agency (ESA) and other national space agencies are expected to launch nanosatellites and microsatellites to gather data on climate monitoring, disaster management, navigation, and surveillance.

Nanosatellite and Microsatellite Market

The implementation of stringent regulations by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), an organization that regulates orbital slots and radio frequencies, can restrain the growth of the market in the near future. Key players in the nanosatellite and microsatellite market include the RUAG Group (Switzerland), Clyde Space, Inc. (U.K.), GS Sweden AB (GomSpace) (Denmark), Sierra Nevada Corporation (U.S.), PLANET LABS, INC. (U.S.), TYVAK INC. (U.S.), Lockheed Martin Corporation (U.S.), Raytheon Company (U.S.), Innovative Solutions In Space (Netherlands), and Spacequest Ltd. (U.S.).
