Global Commercial Satellite Imaging Market is valued approximately USD XX million in 2021 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than XX % over the forecast period 2022-2028.

The Commercial Satellite Imaging refers to capturing the images of earth through satellites and these images are further utilized for various commercial purposes such as location-based services, weather forecasting, acquisition & mapping, disaster management, energy & natural resource management, urban planning & development, and security & surveillance applications. The rising expansion of global space ecosystem and increasing penetration of location-based services as well as Strategic initiatives from leading market players are factors that are accelerating the global market demand. For instance, according to The Space Foundation estimates - in 2019, the global space economy estimated at USD 428 billion, and it further increased to USD 447 billion in 2020, witnessing an increase of around 4.4%. Moreover, Commercial space activity raised 6.6% (from around USD 336.89 billion in 2019) to around USD 357 billion in 2020. Furthermore, strategic initiatives from leading market players including public private partnerships would influence the growth of Commercial Satellite Imaging Market. For instance, in September 2020, Norway's Ministry of Climate and Environment entered in a new contract with three satellite monitoring companies named Kongsberg Satellite Services (KSAT), Planet and Airbus. The USD 43.5 million contract awarded under Norway's International Climate and Forests Initiative (NICFI) to enable free access to high-resolution satellite imagery of the tropics. In addition, in May 2022, The National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), USA awarded an undisclosed billion-dollar contract to acquire commercial satellite imagery to three space technology companies named Colloredo, US based Maxar Technologies, California based Planet Labs and Virginia based BlackSky Technology. Also, growing utilization in government and defense services and increasing number of investments towards space infrastructure are anticipated to act as a catalyzing factor for the market demand during the forecast period. However, stringent government regulation pertaining to commercialization of satellite imaginary coupled with risk associated with national security impede the growth of the market over the forecast period of 2022-2028.

The key regions considered for the global Commercial Satellite Imaging Market study include Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Rest of the World. North America is the leading region across the world in terms of market share owing to the growing investment activities and presence of well-established satellite infrastructure in the region. Whereas, Asia Pacific is anticipated to exhibit a significant growth rate over the forecast period 2022-2028. Factors such as the thriving growth of space industry and increasing penetration of location-based services in the region, would create lucrative growth prospects for the global Commercial Satellite Imaging Market across the Asia Pacific region.
