Market Dynamics

Driver: Rise in demand for observational applications

Earth observation satellite data has never been more in demand than now, as missions have established their ability to increase understanding and management of the Earth and its environment. Many agencies are addressing this demand by delivering more data, supporting significant science programmes, expanding network stations, and making more data available in near-real time. Advanced information and communication technologies have created numerous monitoring systems for Earth observation operations throughout the last few decades. The Internet of Things, for example, has played a significant role in this area. Nanosatellites and microsatellites have recently gained popularity as a promising paradigm that has the potential to alter society and industries. It can integrate numerous devices with sensing, processing, identification, communication, actuation, and networking capabilities in a seamless manner.

Restraint: Operational limits

As miniature satellites have little or no propulsion, they have little control over where they move. Mini propulsion methods add cost because they need to move. When compared to regular satellites, failed launches are more common. Their operational lifetime is limited due to their compact dimensions.

Opportunity: Increasing investment in territorial disputes

Territorial disputes occur when official representatives of one nation assert their sovereignty over a particular area of land claimed or governed by another. Territorial disputes are more prone than other diplomatic disputes involving maritime, river, identity, economic, cultural, or other problems to escalate into militarised conflict. The government agencies of these nations are investing in enhancing border security using high-tech equipment. Many nations use tiny satellites for border monitoring due to escalating territorial disputes and geopolitical tensions.

Challenges: Space debris concern

Any piece of equipment or debris left in space by humans is known as space debris. There are around 34,000 objects larger than 10 centimetres in space, along with millions of smaller objects that might still be deadly if they collide with something else. Thus, the growing concern about space debris limits the use of miniature satellites.
