Europe small satellite market is expected to grow at a brisk rate during the forecast period. The key factor responsible for the growth of small satellite market is that the manufacturers are focussing more towards minimizing the overall mission cost. Additionally, rising innovations in tech sector for space explorations are further estimated to enhance the capabilities of small satellites, thereby driving the market growth in the region. However, the factor that might hamper the growth of market over the coming years is less cost involved in producing these satellites, which is making market players to hurry up the production process, resulting in high risk of launch failures.

The Europe small satellite market is segmented based on type, end user, application, subsystem, country and company. Based on type, the nanosatellite segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast years, which can be attributed to rapid advancements in miniaturization of the space exploration technologies, which is making nanosatellites potentially and economically more viable for their wide usage in government, civil, commercial and military applications. In addition to this, reduction in the cost of these satellites, increasing investments in this vertical, rising demand, growing number of areas of application and superior mission launches are factors contributing towards fuelling the demand for nanosatellites across the region.

Major players operating in the Europe small satellite market include Sierra Nevada Corporation, Singapore Technologies Engineering Limited, Surrey Satellite Technology LTD., Planet Labs Inc., Airbus Defense and Space, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Space Exploration Technologies Corp., Millennium Space Systems Inc., Lockheed Martin Corporation, Harris Corporation and others.
