Impact of covid-19 on High Altitude Platforms Market

High Altitude Platforms (HAP) Market Analysis:

High altitude platforms are aerial objects or aircrafts stationed in the stratosphere layer of the earth much higher in comparison to operational altitude of commercial aircrafts. High altitude platforms are positioned at an altitude of more than 50,000 feet above the earth’s surface. This height enables them to cover a larger region making their operational area wide which can be used for persistent surveillance, navigation, and communication systems for military and civilian applications. High altitude platforms are furnished with different payloads according to the desired applications.  These aircrafts can be either unmanned or manned, airships, balloons, and airplanes. These platforms are also used for environmental mapping and monitoring, internet services, and aerial imaging. High altitude platform provides a lucrative alternative to satellite systems owing to their capabilities of performing similar actions. 

Increased benefits over satellite systems and growing defense expenses are the major factors driving the market growth

Adoption rate for high altitude platforms has been sky rocketed owing to the benefits offered by them in comparison to satellite systems. High altitude platforms are operated on much lower expenses and can be
deployed at minimalistic costs. They require low maintenance in comparison to satellite systems. High altitude platforms are much easier to maneuver which makes them a convenient option. They take much less time for installation at the desired or already fixed altitudes. Worldwide existing technological infrastructure facilitates the payloads attached to the high altitude platforms. This makes them more preferred option over satellite systems. High altitude platforms have lower turn-around as compared to satellites owing to the close distance to the Earth’s surface. These benefits cumulatively offer much better solutions compared to satellite systems because of which the demand for high altitude platforms has massively increased. Also, growing investments by various countries in the high-altitude platforms for defense and military purposes is growing. Major countries like U.S., India, China, Israel, and others are aggressively developing infrastructure facilities which could help gain strategic benefits to these countries over others.

High costs and poor technological infrastructure are hampering the market growth

Even though in comparison to satellite systems, high altitude platforms are much low -priced but still they require a good amount of investments for development, deployment, operations, and maintenance. Owing to its high prices, multiple regions aren’t able to afford high altitude platforms. Further, they have restrictions on payload weight and also slow deployment. Also, poor technological infrastructure across the globe is affecting the market’s development.

Increased usage for developing robust wireless internet services to create lucrative market opportunities

Private organizations and governments across the globe are highly focusing on investing in high altitude platform technology to develop a robust wireless internet infrastructure and increase internet penetration. Since these aerial vehicles are placed at an altitude of about 50,000 feet or more, they enable a service provider to cover wider area. This helps in increasing the reachability as well as decreases costs massively. For instance, search engine giant Google is focused on using high altitude platforms (mainly aerostat systems) to provide wireless internet services across the globe and has named it project Loon. Such investments will offer lucrative market opportunities and since the demand for wireless technologies is on rise it will facilitate the growth of market. Further, increased investments by governments to develop technological infrastructure and improve the imaging and surveillance sector will create new opportunities.
