Europe & CIS Small Satellite Market to be Dominated by Nanosatellites During the Forecast Period

Developing technology and material systems and increasing use of small satellites in different sectors will drive the growth of the Europe & CIS small satellite market during the forecast period.

According to TechSci Research report, Europe & CIS Small Satellite Market - By Region, Competition, Forecast & Opportunities, 2018-2028F, the Europe & CIS small satellites market is growing at a significant rate. As the demand for Earth observation, surveillance, security, and other sectors continues to grow, the scope and opportunity for both established players and new entrants to enter the market is expanding. Small satellites, also known as miniaturized satellites or smallsat, are typically satellites with lower weight (less than 1,200 kilograms) and size. The most common applications of these satellites are fleet management, logistics ship tracking, aircraft tracking, communication in-orbit demonstration, disaster management, and others. Furthermore, as technology progresses, the Europe & CIS small satellite market is anticipated to expand further. Additionally, electronic technology continues to miniaturize to increase in capability and accessibility, nanosatellites are becoming increasingly capable of carrying out commercial missions that were previously dependent on micro-satellites. Overall, this increases the popularity of small satellites among many organizations, which will further boost the demand for Europe & CIS small satellites during the forecast period.

Europe & CIS region is one of the world’s largest small satellite markets. The rapid growth of small satellite production and launch has changed the way space is used. Large satellites typically operate in GEO orbits for long periods of time, while small satellites typically operate in LEO orbits for shorter periods of time. Furthermore, the development of lighter and more powerful material systems has significantly increased the use of small satellites over the last few years.

The development of technology, especially in the area of electronic components miniaturization, and the utilization of thermal management in the small satellite industry has increased the demand for small satellites over the past few years. To prevent damage to the electronics on the circuit boards caused by the significant increase in heat generated in small satellites, many organizations are investing in R&D to develop safe and long-lasting small satellites. This has led to the rapid growth of the Europe & CIS small satellite market.

Many companies are investing in small satellite R&D and working with other space firms to deploy small satellites in orbit periodically. In 2023, the European Space Agency’s (ESA) European Positioning and Tracking (EPICYPer-1) 6U (EPICYPER-1) small satellite, a segment of the ESA’s constellation, was successfully launched on a mission to the International Space Station. Additionally, in 2023, EnduroSat secures series A funding accounting for USD 10 million, led by CEECAT Capital (European Investment Fund), with a focus on the rapidly expanding markets of the CEE space market. From the above factors, the Europe & CIS small satellite market is expected to grow at a higher rate in coming years.
