Technological Advancement and Concern for Security to Boost Commercial Satellite Imaging Market

With its extensive world coverage and rapid transmission of visual information, satellite imaging has exceeded the use of terrestrial and aerial imagery by eliminating the constraint of geographical scope. The relevance of satellite imaging has motivated governmental organizations to encourage its growth. By funding in satellite imaging technology, several governments have assisted the companies analyzed in the market. The Australian government has spent in satellite technology and invested USD 260 million on satellite technology employment creation in Australia. With the rising significance of this technology, the global commercial satellite imaging market is likely to observe growth in the near future.

In most countries, rising military and defense expenditures for the implementation of security policies are predicted to support the growth of the global commercial satellite imaging market. Given the increasing security issues, several countries, with the assistance of technological advancement, have been deploying satellites to reinforce their defense activities. The growth of this market is therefore anticipated to be stimulated by a spike in the number of satellite launches across several countries. For geospatial imaging, the defense industry often employs commercial satellite imaging, which is likely to add fillip to the market in the near future.

Augmented Demand for Use in Defense and Military Proposes to Trigger Growth of the Market

The military and defense uses of commercial satellite imaging have become the main end-user segment. Security and surveillance applications, which are the main functionalities of every defense organization, can be attributed to the growth of this segment in the global commercial satellite imaging market. Authorities have their satellites orbiting earth in several situations, executing many tasks. However, for the safety of many other countries, they typically have restricted access to global airspace. Governments may practice shutter control policies in some extreme circumstances, which could involve international satellites to shut down satellite imaging equipment in territorial airspace.
