Drivers & Restraints

Increasing Usage of Space for Commercial Purposes to Bolster Growth

The increasing number of small satellite launches is for military and commercial purposes is expected to lead to the issue of overcrowding in space. Hence, positioning and tracking of space objects is necessary. The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) mentioned that at present, there are around 3,373 operational satellites orbiting around the Earth. Besides, the surging usage of space of commercial services and national security would also drive the demand for these awareness services. However, non-government agencies must have the supervision and authorization to carry out space activities from the state. It may obstruct the space situational awareness market growth in the near future.
