Global CubeSat Market Anticipated to Grow at a CAGR of 33.4% From 2018 to 2022, Reports BIS Research

FREMONT, California, June 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

According to a market intelligence report by BIS Research titled, "Global CubeSat Market, Analysis & Forecast, 2018-2022 [ ]", the global market is expected to reach $566.2 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 33.4% during the period, 2016 - 2022. As compared to the conventional heavy satellites, CubeSats typically have a shorter development cycle and team, and consequently have reduced cost, both for the manufacturing and for the launch of the satellite. Furthermore, CubeSats have the added advantage of containerization and standardized form-factor, in effect enabling easier launch vehicle integration and mass production, which further lowers the cost of the space mission. The interest in CubeSats has increased significantly during the last few years. Therefore, several nations worldwide are keen to launch their CubeSat and are collaborating with space-faring agencies.

With the increase in the capabilities of CubeSats, the satellite industry is developing their increasing strategic utility, thus motivating various stakeholders including government, space agencies, and private companies to develop dedicated and next-generation CubeSat constellations. Over the course of the next ten years, more than 3,600 small satellites are expected to be launched, which could reach 10,000 if even a fraction of the scheduled constellations will be deployed. The space industry is undergoing a transformational evolution, thus making space industry accessible and affordable for small businesses and everyday individuals as the potential participants. The benefits of utilizing CubeSats over the conventional ones are also responsible for the emergence of multiple space industry segments.

The CubeSat market has witnessed a high growth rate owing to the extensive demand of small satellite constellations, technological expansion in electronic components for CubeSats, immediate need for satellite miniaturization in the space industry, and an increase in the number of space missions for academic research. Recent innovations in satellite equipment and services enable the CubeSat technology to reach a broader segment of consumers in the industry. However, the lack of affordability in launch services for CubeSats and regulation of the increasing amount of space debris act as the significant challenges for the growth of the market. Companies are developing emerging technologies such as 3D printed electronic components, onboard internet system, and electronic propulsion system, among others, which are expected to increase the competition in the near future as well as facilitate the utilization of CubeSats as a primary satellite for the space mission.

Increasing demand for Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) small satellite networks and disaster management through satellite remote sensing are the significant factors which are expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market in the next five years. The market is filled with advancements in CubeSats for telecommunication. Current developments in the satellite-driven IoT and M2M connectivity networks serve as a critical enabler to transform the IoT connectivity across industries and geographical borders. The satellite industry is witnessing rapid growth in the number of CubeSats for large satellite constellations consisting of hundreds of satellites for applications like earth observation and telecommunications.

According to Ayushi Bajpai, analyst at BIS Research, "Based on low power consumption, low mass, and low cost of architectural requirements, 6U CubeSats have been assuring fast and affordable access to space. 6U CubeSat is expected to witness the highest growth rate of 56.5% in the market, consuming 7.9% and 5.9% of the overall market share in 2017 and 2022 respectively."
