Space Sensors Market Projection $5.80 Billion By 2032, CAGR 11.6%

Space Sensors Market Size Worth $5.80 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 11.6%

The global space sensors market size is expected to reach USD 5.80 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Space Sensors Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Type (IMU Sensors, GPS Sensors, Star Sensors, Optical Sensors, and Others); By Platform; By Application; By End User; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

The increasing number of innovations in global space, primarily sensors, is expected to continue the growth of the market in the coming years. For instance, In August 2023, Raytheon, an RTX company, stated that its Geostationary Littoral Imaging & Monitoring Radiometer sensor had completed its critical design review and entered the build and test program. This sensor was chosen by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) as its initial ocean color hyperspectral imager in the geostationary orbit and is expected to play a crucial role in ongoing government and international agency initiatives to promote coastal ecosystem sustainability & resource management. As the companies work on research and development activities related to space sensors to address planet challenges, there will be substantial growth potential for the market in the next few years.

The rising conflicts and wars among countries are encouraging countries to adopt advanced space sensor technologies to track harmful missiles from other countries. Increasing national security concerns among nations worldwide are motivating companies to build effective technologies and assist countries in critical situations.

In September 2023, the United States Space Force Space Development Agency requested 54 satellites with the ability to track hypersonic missiles in all phases of flight, furnished with infrared sensors. It is part of the plan to build a tracking layer with more than 100 satellites to track the hypersonic missiles from China and Russia. The ongoing Russian-Ukrainian and Israel-Hamas wars are stimulating countries to increase measures to combat unforeseen attacks. This may create demand for space sensors due to their ability to track missiles in global space.
