Market Overview

Global CubeSat (1U, 2U, 3U, 6U, and Other Sizes) Market 2018-2022


Dublin, Aug. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global CubeSat Market: Focus on Sizes (1U, 2U, 3U, 6U, and Other Sizes),Subsystems, and End Users (Academic, Commercial, Government, Defense,and Non-Profit Organization) - Analysis and Forecast: 2018-2022" report has been added to's offering.

In terms of revenue, the CubeSats market generated $100.5 million in the year 2016.

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, imminent need for satellite miniaturization in the space industry, and increase in the number of space missions for academic research. Recent innovations in satellite equipment and services enable the CubeSat technology to reach a wider segment of consumers in the industry.

Recent innovations in CubeSat subsystems have enabled them to reach a wider segment of consumers in the satellite industry. The companies are developing relatively low-cost CubeSats, 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 CubeSats for varied applications.

Increasing demand for Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) small satellite networks and disaster management through satellite remote sensing are the major factors which are expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market in the next five years.
