High Altitude Platform (HAP) Market size is set to exceed USD 1.5 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.|

A major factor contributing to the high demand in the high altitude platform market are the operational advantages over coverage area, manufacturing and repair costs as compared to conventional communication systems such as satellites and communication towers. These provide massive cost-savings in manufacturing, testing, and maintenance as compared to satellite systems.

Solar-powered, efficient technologies are massively promoted by government bodies across the world owing to the rising pollution and depletion of natural fuel sources. Vendors operating in the global high altitude platform market are integrating photo-voltaic cell modules across the wingspan to decrease the reliance on fuel cells to generate power.
