COVID-19 Impact on the global market value for remote sensing services

Remote sensing and imaging satellites provide comparison images to health officials and other users, which is critical for monitoring the efficiency of “stay at home” and other social distancing guidelines. Earth observation satellites also provide a secure and remote way to collect global data on site without leaving the home or office. As a group, satellites provide essential services to governments, businesses and consumers. The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has identified satellite operations as a critical part of a functioning critical infrastructure that is critical during the COVID-19 emergency response for both public safety and community well-being.

Widespread adoption in defense applications helps the remote sensing services market grow significantly
Remote sensing technologies provide geographic contextual data to government and defense, empowering them to make more confident decisions. Delivered by key players, these services provide the defense and intelligence chain with the most advanced software technology available to efficiently manage and exploit geographic data from the command center to the tip of the spear. Remote sensing detects anomalies to reveal hidden targets, detects movement and changes over time, visualizes terrain to plan troop activities, and targets spectrally anomalous areas that could indicate potential threats. In this way, the defense sector has benefited from the use of remote sensing services around the world.

The advent of cloud computing, big data analytics and the Internet of Things are supporting the growth of the remote sensing services market
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the result of recent breakthroughs in home automation, smart environments, smart cities and various sensor networks for military and civilian applications. The data generated by remote sensing software and IoT technologies has the potential to provide a wide range of insights that can ensure effective performance, reduce costs and proactively warn of impending problems. Moreover, with the rise of big data analytics, remote sensing data is finding new applications in areas such as urban planning, global climate change and natural hazard monitoring.

Market Segmentation for Remote Sensing Services
The global market is divided into five sections: technology, platform, resolution, end-user and region.
The technology segment is split into active remote sensing and passive remote sensing. Due to technology, passive remote sensing technology had peaked market share for remote sensing services by 2021. According to information from American Scientists, the vast majority of Earth observation satellites are equipped with “passive” sensors that measure either radiated thermal energy or reflected solar radiation from the atmosphere or the Earth’s surface. The latest satellites also use “active” sensors that radiate energy and track the reflected or diffracted response, which can be used to derive information about Earth.

Based on the platform, the market is split into satellites (Earth observation, mapping and navigation, meteorology, telecommunications and others), manned aircraft (coastal analysis, defense and intelligence, disaster management, mineral exploration mapping, pipeline monitoring, precision farming and others ), UAVs (3D terrain model construction, damage assessment, defense and intelligence, geohazard mapping, mineral exploration, pipeline monitoring, precision farming and others), and soil. Among them, satellites acquired the majority of the share due to their increasing demand for critical information for mapping, resource management, mineral exploration and others.

The resolution segment is divided into spectral, spatial, temporal and radiometric. Of these, the spatial resolution technique is popular in defense and commercial applications because it can distinguish between two objects even if they are close to each other.
Furthermore, the end-user segment is divided into defense and commercial. The end-user of defense is further divided into defense organizations and internal security services. Commercial end-users are divided into agriculture, energy and power, media and entertainment, weather forecasting, scientific research and others.

Regional Market Outlook for Remote Sensing Services
North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa account for the majority of the global remote sensing services market. According to our regional analysis, North America currently leads the remote sensing services industry with significant market share and is expected to continue to lead in the future. The rapid growth of the region can be attributed to advances in remote sensing technology in land assessment techniques. In addition, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow the fastest in the coming years as a result of improved defense technologies and massive government investment.
