Global Small Satellites Market Analysis and Forecast 2017-2021: Major Players are Clyde Space, Space Systems/Loral, Surrey Satellite, Tyvak, Israel Aerospace, Lockheed Martin, OHB and Orbital

/EIN News/ -- Dublin, Jan. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Small Satellites Market - Analysis and Forecast: 2017 to 2021 Focus on Types, Subsystems and End Users " report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

Small Satellites Market Reported a Revenue of $2,528.1 Million in 2016, and Government End User is Expected to Generate the Highest Revenue by 2021

The small satellites market has witnessed a high growth rate owing to the advancements in satellite miniaturization, increasing capability of electronic technology, ascending demand for small satellite constellations, and increase in the deployment of small satellites for commercial end users.

Recent innovations in small satellite subsystems have enabled them to reach a wider segment of consumers in the satellite industry. The companies are developing relatively low-cost small satellites, i.e., small satellites, which facilitate services almost equivalent to the traditional big satellites that serve government agencies or public sector industries.

This, in effect, is expected to increase competition in the near future as well as facilitate the utilization of small satellites for varied applications. Increasing market penetration of small satellites into disaster management - an emerging small satellite application, nations developing their own Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), advancements in small satellite structure, and rise in the requirement of cost effective launching sites for small launch vehicles are the major factors which are expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market in the next five years.

Clyde Space Ltd., Space Systems/Loral, LLC, Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd., Tyvak Nano-Satellite Systems, Inc., Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd., Lockheed Martin Corporation, OHB SE, and Orbital ATK, Inc. are some of the major players of the small satellites market.
