Small Satellite Market

Small Satellite Market worth $7.4 billion by 2026

According to a research report "Small Satellite Market by Satellite Mass (Small satellite, CubeSat), Application (Communication, Earth Observation & Remote Sensing, Scientific, Technology), Subsystem, Orbit, End User, Frequency and Region - Forecast to 2026" size is estimated to be USD 3.1 Bn in 2020 and projected to reach USD 7.4 Bn by 2026, at a CAGR of 19.4%. The continuous advancements in the miniaturization of satellites through technological advancements in electronics, low-mission costs, and the increasing use of satellite constellations (containerization) are major drivers for the growth of this market.  According to Euroconsult, government funding in space exploration is expected to surpass USD 20 billion by 2027. There will be a boost in public and private initiatives in space exploration in the future with a converging global interest in moon exploration. The global expenditures have grown in the past 5 years (excluding 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic) driven by programs in leading and new countries investing in space exploration. This will directly drive the small satellite market for serving space observation applications.
