Global Remote Sensing Satellite Market 2017-2021

About Remote Sensing Satellite

The technology of remote sensing satellite involves monitoring, observing, and gathering information of Earth (land and ocean) and the atmosphere with the help of inbuilt sensors that are integrated on satellite platforms. The successful aggregation of remotely procured data with traditional satellite systems for environmental assessment and resource management has led to the institutionalization of such technologies in the user domain. As of May 2017, there are approximately 1,460 satellites operational, out of which around 5%-6% are used for remote sensing applications, and approximately 10%-12% satellites are dedicated for Earth observation purposes.Technavio’s analysts forecast the global remote sensing satellite market to grow at a CAGR of 5.59% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Releases

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Remote Sensing Satellite Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global remote sensing satellite market: Airbus Defence and Space, Ball Aerospace, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Thales Alenia Space.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, Orbital ATK, MDA Information Systems, Mitsubishi Electric, and SSTL.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is greater emphasis on situational awareness. The idea of augmenting existing situational awareness capabilities within defense agencies advocates the organized acquisition of elements and events that are used for ensuring dominance in combat situations. It also helps in establishing national security countermeasure policies.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is growing adoption of SATCOM-based systems and equipment. SATCOM links are one of the several kinds of long-distance communications links, which interconnect communications centers located strategically across the world. These links are part of the Defense Satellite Communications System. The superior effectiveness of SATCOM has also contributed to substantial investment from various defense agencies. The primary reason for opting SATCOM-based communication is to ensure reliable and secure communications support to combatants in remote areas.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is technological complexities of EO/IR sensors. Vendors in this market are obliged to adhere to the stringent regulatory policies of different countries. There are many vendors that work in a close collaborative atmosphere with government agencies and departments of defense within various countries. Therefore, it has become a necessity for the manufacturers to comply with stringent regulations. In addition, military forces are facing difficulties in the adoption of new technologies as they soon become obsolete.
