Download Sample   Reports Overview

The global satellite data services market share is estimated to reach $22,431.6 million by 2028, rising from $8,357.9 million in 2020, at a CAGR of 12.7%.

Covid-19 Impact on Satellite Data Services Market

The coronavirus outbreak in 2019 has negatively affected the satellite data services industry worldwide. Fear of contracting the COVID-19 disease along with strict social distancing rules implemented by developed as well as developing nations in order to prevent the virus transmission have led to the shutdown of many industries. The current impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the satellite manufacturing industry is limited to delivery delays caused by activity slowdowns for some manufacturers. As a result of the COVID-19 epidemic, which has caused a delay in the production and supply of launch vehicle components, satellite launches are expected to fall in 2021. The availability of imagery and analysis services is projected to be impacted by delays in satellite production and launch. However, by 2022 and beyond, the number is expected to rise due to high demand and the need to reduce backlogs.

Global Satellite Data Services Market Insights

The market is predicted to expand because of the high functionality of satellite imaging data across numerous industries and the increasing need for free access to satellite-based images. Due to the popularity of tools like Google Earth, there is a growing need for real-time satellite imagery feed on mobile devices, which is anticipated to fuel market growth. Moreover, satellite data is rapidly being used in the building of smart cities and connected automobiles. Urban planners are using this data to have a better understanding of settlement patterns and ensure that infrastructure is managed efficiently. The increased use of remote sensing technology for zoning and municipal infrastructure modelling has benefited in meeting the growing need for better urban development management from city-based populations.

Government imposed tight rules and regulations, on the other hand, may stifle the expansion of the satellite data services sector. Satellite data services also necessitate a large capital investment due to the technologies used and the strong demand. The adoption of technology such as high-resolution remote sensing, powerful satellite analytics software, and others could raise costs, limiting industry expansion.

The increased use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in the space industry has opened plenty of possibilities for service providers to deliver AI and ML-integrated solutions. AI-powered platforms are providing access to previously inaccessible aspects including social, industrial, and economic processes. Moreover, cloud technology has also enabled researchers and organizations to gain access to imagery and historic data.

Satellite Data Services Market, Segmentation
