LONDON, Aug. 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Global small satellites market was valued at US$xx billion in 2019 and is projected to reach at a market value of US$xx billion by 2030. North America market is expected to grow at a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period 2020-2030. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of xx% in the first half period 2020-2025 and is projected to grow at CAGR of xx% in the other half period 2025-2030. Small satellites (smallsats) are an emerging class of spacecraft that incorporates recent software and hardware improvements, most notably ones derived from the IT and electronics industries, and benefits from the resulting high capability feasible in small packages. There is no universally accepted definition of a smallsat; various groups and reports have classified smallsats according to their mass, volume, cost, capabilities, or some combination thereof. In this report, smallsats are defined as satellites with masses lower than 200 kg (with some exceptions). Small satellites include CubeSats, special types of cuboid-shaped smallsats that weigh between 1–10 kg and are created in units of a 10 cm × 10 cm × 10 cm cube. Compared with traditional satellites, smallsats typically have shorter development cycles, smaller development teams, and, consequently, lower cost, both for the development and for the launch of the satellites.

Almost all are planned for launch into LEO orbit; and over 60% will be CubeSats. Visiongain used a scenario-based approach to identify key drivers propelling the development and direction of the smallsat sector. After an initial survey of current activities in the sector, Visiongain selected four scenarios that could become reality 10–15 years from now. Visiongain identified drivers that would lead to these end states and examined their current status and trends. Visiongain also assessed the likelihood of the scenarios coming to fruition between 2020 and 2030.

Key Takeaways

Asia and Europe are strong players in the small satellite field, noted by stakeholders as having important markets and significant technological development
Asia in particular is noted as a growing region in the field, with new start-ups and increasing availability of launch.
• Government is the primary source of funding in most emerging countries; although there is limited foreign private (venture capital) funding, such funding has not proliferated into the new space industry as widely as has occurred within the United States.
• Countries with a longer space heritage, such as Russia, China, and potentially India, are often perceived as having not fully leveraged their satellite experience for small satellites, with government space programs having placed more emphasis on large satellites. However, this attitude is changing, particularly in China.
• South American countries have demonstrated interest in small satellites given a growing number of government sponsored small satellite missions; Academic institutions are key in developing technologies.
