MarketsandMarkets forecast the nanosatellite and microsatellite market size to grow from USD 889.8 Million in 2015 to USD 2.52 Billion by 2020, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23.2% from 2015 to 2020. Space industry has been witnessing a rapid advancement in the miniaturization of space technology from the past few years and thus present extensive opportunities for space explorations and research projects related to civil, commercial, government, and military activities. Nanosatellites and microsatellites are one of the innovations that have transformed the satellite industry by integrating satellite services for commercial purposes and have opened various horizons of businesses. These satellites are designed to perform tasks that conventional satellites are not capable of, such as forming constellations for low data rate communications, earth observation imagery, and university-related research.

The larger adoption of these satellites is backed by their cost-effectiveness and highly useful nature of hi-tech space missions. In addition to its efficient low-size and low-cost capabilities, the vehicle launch cost is ten times lesser than the conventional satellite launch. These satellites are also launched in group on the same launch vehicle, thus further decreasing the overall financial cost. This has been attracting new entrants in space programs to develop their expertise in space technology. Various commercial as well as private ventures have started investing in this constantly expanding and diversifying space programs to capitalize on the opportunities presented through these low-cost small satellite missions related to communication, earth-observation, remote-sensing, and many others. Apart from these services, these miniature satellites have promoted the Information Technology (IT) companies to develop analytics from real-time high-resolution imagery obtained from these satellites.

Agriculture health monitoring, oil storage monitoring, mining operation monitoring, and carbon monitoring among others are the new applications that have been developed by the data provided by these satellites. The increasing capabilities of nanosatellites and microsatellites through the integration of latest, hi-tech, and commercial-off-the-shelf electronic circuits is going to further boost the demand of such satellites in the coming years.

Continual reduction in cost of such satellites, growing demand, increase in the number of application areas, growth in investments from Silicon Valley, and superior mission launches are expected to remain the major drivers behind the increased traction of the nanosatellite and microsatellite market.

In the coming years, this market is expected to witness a huge growth due to its increasing demand in the above shown verticals. However there are few factors restraining the growth of this market, one of the major restraints is the delay in satellite launch. Usually the delay could be because of technical issues, weather problems, ground equipment failures, and business or regulatory issues, eventually this may also result into cancellation of the satellite launch and thus affecting the complete project. Other than this, raising capital for the project is also a big challenge which can hamper any satellite launch significantly. However in the present scenario, initiatives from various universities and private firms have boosted the financial support for various nanosatellite and microsatellite projects. Moreover the dominant players in this market are also investing in various partnerships and agreements to strengthen their position in this market. Also significant mergers and acquisition have been noted in this market including acquisition of Skybox Imaging Inc. by Google, and Patria Space Business by RUAG.
