Technavio aerospace and defense analysts highlight the following three market drivers that are contributing to the growth of the global commercial satellite imaging market:
• Advances in satellite imaging technologies
• Use of satellite imaging in geological research
• Increasing demand for EO imaging systems
Advances in satellite imaging technologies
Images provided by satellites are interpreted to gather valuable data and information, which are used by government organizations for sectors such as defense, oil and natural gas, mining, meteorology, and agriculture. Innovative image-enhancing equipment, including high-resolution cameras and advanced remote-sensing technology, have enhanced the quality of satellite-based EO images. These images are used extensively in the defense, science, and R&D domains. The technology used to capture satellite images has been improving over the years, thereby raising the expectations of the end-users. For example, users have started demanding more clarity in the images captured by EO satellites so that they can use these images effectively for applications such as weather information collection and forecasting, farming, and forestry.
Use of satellite imaging in geological research
Apart from aiding in mineral exploration projects and the identification of roads, inhabited regions, and forests, satellite imaging has successfully unearthed several natural and manmade foundations. Such findings are useful for geological research.
With an increase in the demand for reliable telemetry infrastructure, the demand for satellite-based telemetry has also increased. Satellite telemetry is used for various civil, commercial, government, and military applications. For example, it is used by researchers to track the movement of targets (such as animal and birds) on Earth. Such tracking is done using orbiting satellites. The satellite receives radio signals from transmitters attached to the target. Satellite telemetry is also widely used for military and defense applications.
Increasing demand for EO imaging systems
Advanced remote-sensing technology and advanced image-enhancing equipment such as high-resolution cameras have led to an improvement in the quality of satellite-based Earth observation (EO) images.
“Such equipment provides all the users with a single internet access point to obtain EO data from both existing databases and the new up-to-date portals. This facilitates direct access to information for users from different domains,” says Avimanyu.
The users can be surveyors, farmers, miners, fishers, engineers, and others decision makers seeking EO data to meet their business objectives. EO data is also extensively shared and used by defense agencies, science institutions, research a
