Technavio Says the Global Nano and Microsatellite Market Will Experience Steady Growth Through 2019

By Business Wire News   


Technavio has published a new market research report on the global nano and microsatellite market, which projects growth at a CAGR of 22.87% from 2015-2019.

About the Report

Military and defense forces worldwide require space capabilities to meet the demand for more operationally responsive forces for various military requirements, especially communications. Therefore, the utilization of unmanned aerial vehicles and modern equipment by military forces has increased.

“Military and defense forces are utilizing commercial satellite infrastructure for increased bandwidth requirements, which has led to an increased use of nano and microsatellites,” says Faisal Ghaus, Vice President of Technavio.

“Large constellations of microsatellites can now be launched at lower costs, which is expected to boost market growth.”

The new industry analysis report also points to the advent of micro-thrusters, since chemical propulsion systems like solid rocket engines cannot be used for nano and microsatellite designs. Micro-thrusters can be used for micro-propulsion of nano and microsatellites, and this new development will enhance the popularity of small satellites through the projected period.
