Insight by Application

Based on the application market segment, the administrative segment is expected to dominate the satellite data services market during the foreseen period. The is partly due to the government and non-government agencies are the frontrunner in implementing satellite-based imagery and insights for numerous administrative purposes, including land management, cadastral surveying, and infrastructure monitoring.

Furthermore, the rise in incorporation of big data technology and satellite imagery allows organizations to map the development of urban areas rapidly, the resources flow and take essential administrative measures. Apart from this, the adoption of such services increased as a pre-requisite for advancing G.I.S. maps and scrutinizing data shown in a satellite image, and hence, is creating a huge implementation of such satellite data services globally.

Insight by Industry Vertical

The environmental segment is expected to witness large market revenue in the global market due to the growing requirement for high-resolution earth images to precisely map wildlife populations, detect deforestation, and track illegal mining trends has offered considerable growth prospects across the environmental sector.

Moreover, meteorologists' increased usage of satellite imagery to monitor recent climate changes directly and take essential remedial measures impetus the market growth. In addition, federal agencies have further begun developing missions to utilize satellite-based LiDAR to map the height and structure of forest covers and map carbon biomass and storage above the ground level. This, in turn, is expected to gain a significant profit share that accelerates the growth of the global satellite data services market.

Geographic Overview

Geographically, North America dominated the global market accounted for the largest share in terms of revenue due to the significant presence of various observation satellite makers and rising investments by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in the R&D of innovative products in the region. Additionally, the design of the new National Space Strategy facilitates the administration related to government authorities to collaborate with key manufacturers in the commercial sector in a way that they can form an efficient defense system in contradiction of threats caused by space-bound attacks, which is further expanding the market growth at a rapid pace considering the global scenario.

The United States and Canada are further anticipated to register the robust growth in terms of strategic initiatives and product and services expansion that will prolong the application of such solutions to streamline activities related to satellites across these countries. As a result, in June 2020, U.S.-based Planet Labs unveiled a new cloud-based dashboard and supplementary API for satellite imagery solutions. Partnering businesses will be capable of utilizing innovative tools to automate satellite imagery task requirements. Such initiative is expected to bolster the region's data services market growth.
