Latin America Commercial Satellite Imaging Market

Commercial satellite imaging refers to obtaining images of Earth and space with the help of satellites. Many private companies offer satellite images of Earth along with processing, and analyze them for various purposes, including monitoring & detection of vegetation, habitat, oil pipelines infrastructure construction, generation of digital elevation model (DEM), and exploration of natural resources & archaeological sites.

In the current business scenario, the adoption of satellite imagery has been witnessed to increase considerably across various verticals such as defense, government, energy, construction, real estate, media & entertainment, and agriculture, which fuels the growth of the Latin America commercial satellite imaging market. Rise in applications of satellite imaging services such as geospatial mapping, disaster mapping, urban planning, and energy management has contributed toward the growth of the market.

In addition, the growth of the market is driven by increase in trend of location-based service (LBS) and rise in applications of satellite imagery in sectors such as government, retail, manufacturing, transportation, construction, defense, and healthcare. However, aerial imaging services provide cost-effective & high-resolution images and videos as compared to satellite imaging, which is one of the major restraining factors. In addition, various limitations of satellite imaging include time-consuming image processing, dependence on weather conditions, and image sensing incapability in dense forests, which hamper the market growth. On the contrary, decrease in prices of satellite imaging solutions and availability of technological advanced satellite imaging systems such as next-generation GPS satellites, advanced remote sensing technology, high-resolution cameras, light detection and ranging (LIDAR) technology, electric propulsion technology, and others are expected to create numerous opportunities for market expansion.

The major players operating in the Latin America commercial satellite imaging market include DigitalGlobe, Inc., Galileo Group, Inc., Threetek, Telespazio, SkyLab Analytics, Harris Corporation, Satellogic, Trimble Navigation Ltd, Airbus, and UrtheCast Corp.

Latin America Commercial Satellite Imaging Market

 

Segmentation

Latin America commercial satellite imaging market is segmented on the basis of end user, type, application, and country. Commercial satellite imaging has gained increased adoption across various industries, including government, defense, forestry & agriculture, energy, civil engineering & archaeology, and others (media & entertainment, insurance, and real estate). On the basis of type, the market is bifurcated into shortwave infrared (2070 meters) and visible RGB (520 meters). The applications covered in the study include geospatial data acquisition & mapping, urban planning & development, disaster management, energy & natural resource management, and surveillance & security. County wise, the market is studied across Brazil, Chile, Argentina, and rest of Latin America

Top Impacting Factors

Increase in trends of LBS, high resolution offered by aerial imaging services, and decrease in prices of satellite imaging solutions are the significant factors that affect the growth of the Latin America commercial satellite imaging market. These factors are anticipated to either drive or hamper the market growth.

 

Increase in Trend of LBS

LBS is a software service, which utilizes real-time geographical data through internet-capable devices to provide information about the current location of a place or person. LBS uses satellite images to facilitate users to use this service for various applications, including shopping services, emergency services, navigation services, weather information, traffic information, and others. Satellite imaging technology offers high-resolution imagery for the production of updated, highly accurate, and real-time maps used in LBS. Moreover, LBS is gaining high importance in various sectors of economy such as government authorities, defense & intelligence, transportation, telecommunication, manufacturing, e-retailing, energy, and natural resource management, thus boosting the market growth.

High Resolution Offered by Aerial Imaging Services

Aerial imagery has certain advantages over satellite imagery. Various features of aerial imaging such as frequent flying capability, flexibility against weather conditions, enhanced clarity, and higher resolution of images are expected to limit the utilization of commercial satellite imaging for certain applications. Aerial images provide wide and detailed view of topography through area near-view images with high resolution in comparison with satellite imagery. In addition, satellite imaging provides lower image resolution as compared to aerial imaging. Satellites usually provide images with a resolution of 50 cm, however, efforts are being made by leading players in the market to decrease the image resolution limit to 30 cm in the coming years. On the other hand, digital aerial cameras can capture images with resolution of up to 25 mm (2.5 cm). For instance, GeoEye-1 provides panchromatic imagery of 0.41 m resolution. Thus, advanced features offered by aerial imaging when compared to satellite imaging can be a major restraining factor of the Latin America commercial satellite imaging market.

Decrease in Prices of Satellite Imaging Solutions

Commercial satellite imaging system is gradually emerging as a cost-effective imaging method in the recent years. Satellite data is less expensive to obtain and process, and less time-consuming in comparison with aerial imaging technology. Satellite imaging may be costly for small projects, however, it is cost-effective and time-efficient for large projects such as border mapping, dam construction, monitoring oil & gas pipelines, securing nuclear plants, and others. Satellite imagery ranging from 60 cm to 15 m are available free of cost on the internet for commercial usage. Thus, this decrement in price of satellite imagery is expected to provide huge opportunity for the growth of the market.
