The report covers market characteristics, size and growth, segmentation, regional and country breakdowns, competitive landscape, market shares, trends and strategies for this market. It traces the market's historic and forecast market growth by geography.
Major players in the small satellite market are: Sierra Nevada Corporation, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Airbus, L3 Harris Technologies, The Aerospace Corporation, Planet Labs, GomSpace, Boeing, Space Exploration Technologies, Blue Canyon Technologies, Honeywell International Inc., ST Engineering, Orbital ATK, Inc., Ball Corporation, Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd., QinetiQ, ISIS- Innovative Solutions In Space B.V., Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd. and Spire Global.
The global small satellite market grew from $4.36 billion in 2022 to $5.34 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.4%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, a surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, causing inflation across goods and services and affecting many markets across the globe. The small satellite market is expected to grow to $11.32 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 20.6%.
The small satellite market consists of sales of spacecraft bus, launcher, ground system. Values in this market are: 'factory gate' values, that is the value of goods sold by the manufacturers or creators of the goods, whether to other entities (including downstream manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, and retailers) or directly to end customers. The value of goods in this market includes related services sold by the creators of the goods.
The small satellite refers to the satellites that weigh less than 1,000 kg (2,204 pounds). Small satellites are created by small, highly engaged teams who work on them from conception to launch and operation. Small satellites' weight is reduced even further by using lighter materials in mechanical systems and designing subsystems without redundancy.
North America was the largest region in the small satellite market in 2022. Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region in the forecast period. The regions covered in small satellite market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.
The main types of small satellites are minisatellite, microsatellite, nanosatellite, pico-satellites, femto satellites. Minisatellites are smaller in size. The minisatellite will usually weigh 100-500 kgs. They can orbit in Low Earth Orbit (LEO), Middle Earth Orbit (MEO), Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO). The components of these are structures, payload, electric power system, solar panel and antenna systems, propulsion systems, other components that are applied in earth observation and remote sensing, satellite communication, science and exploration, mapping and navigation, space observation, other applications. There are various end-users such as commercial, academic, government and military, other end-users.
The increasing space exploration missions are significantly driving the growth of the small satellite market. Various government agencies across the world are increasing their space missions and small satellites help them to complete their space missions. According to economic times, an English daily newspaper, China's National Space Administration (CNSA) estimates that the government will launch around 100 satellites by 2025. Similarly, according to the US Air Force Research Laboratory, a scientific research organization operated by the United States Air Force Materiel Command, the US military intends to expand its space awareness capabilities beyond geostationary orbit and aims to start patrolling the Moon taking the mission to the other side of Moon about 1000 times higher. These advances are projected to have a favorable impact on the need and usage of small satellites across the world.
Technological advancements are shaping the small satellite market. Major companies operating in the small satellite market are focused on bringing advancements in technologies that offer to strengthen their position. For instance, in July 2020, Airbus, a European multinational aerospace corporation, created the Prometheus 1 next-generation software-defined radio payload with innovative technology to provide the tremendous capability to clients. Prometheus 1 is a software-defined radio with a 400 MHz UHF antenna that can be reconfigured while in space using disruptive technology. It will be able to assess radio spectrum utilization around the planet from space, detect Faraday-1 satellite radar monitoring, and identify and locate search and rescue beacons. Because it possesses features that are superior, disruptive technology washes away the systems or behaviors it replaces.
In August 2021, Space X, a leading a US-based aerospace manufacturer acquired Swarm for an undisclosed amount. As a result of this acquisition, SpaceX's business will expand as a result of its ownership of a constellation of 120 sandwich-sized satellites and also a ground station network. Swarm is a U.S-based start-up that developed sandwich-sized small satellites and manufactures low-cost components used in the satellite and provides data connectivity as well.
The countries covered in the small satellite market report are: Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Russia, South Korea, UK, USA.
