Satellite-Based Observation: Market Prospects to 2026 Published by Euroconsult

Euroconsult has published Satellite-Based Observation: Market Prospects to 2026 — this is the 10th Edition of this analysis and market segment study and was published last month.

This in-depth report contains;

  • Strategic issues and forecasts
  • Detailed value-chain analysis
  • EO data demand
  • Breakdown of application sectors within each region
  • Consolidated forecasts per application sector and per region


Based on current growth trajectories, Earth Observation (EO) data and services market should reach $8.5 billion by 2026. Considering an alternative value-added services model, the value of the EO market could total $15 billion if new supply solutions are able to open further markets. Plus, more than $33 billion in manufacturing market revenues are expected to be generated by nearly 50 countries launching satellite capacity for EO applications. The study finds that more than 600 EO satellites (50 kg+) are expected to be launched to support EO applications over the next decade, with approximately 20 new operators planning to develop lower-cost constellations for data collection and these firms have already attracted more than $600 million in venture capital to fund their initiatives
