Satellite-based earth observation involves gathering vital information pertaining to the physical, chemical, and biological systems of the Earth using remote sensing technologies and surveying techniques. The information is used to predict climate patterns, weather changes, disasters, natural calamities, oil and mineral deposits, and the availability of water resources. Nowadays, several organizations across the globe are relying on satellite-based earth observation systems to gain accurate and valuable insights for data analytics.

Satellite-based Earth Observation Market Trends:
Governments of numerous economies are encouraging the adoption of smart and precision farming practices on account of the declining arable land and rising food security concerns. This represents one of the key factors expanding the application of satellite-based earth observation systems in information-guided agriculture. Moreover, as forest covers play a vital role in protecting people and infrastructure against natural hazards, such as avalanches, landslides, and rockfalls, forest degradation is catalyzing the need for satellite-based earth observation for the sustainable management of protected forest areas. Apart from this, satellite-based earth observation is gaining traction in sustainable urban planning and rural development as it provides high-resolution satellite imagery data that helps in monitoring urban change processes. Besides this, extensive utilization of high-accuracy datasets in defense and intelligence for land surveillance activities, airfields monitoring, critical infrastructure protection, and crime mapping is contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, space-based technologies are crucial in the aerospace industry to support and increase the safety and efficiency of international civilian air traffic. This, in confluence with the growing passenger air traffic, is influencing the market positively. Additionally, the emerging trend of automated self-driving vehicles is anticipated to drive the adoption of satellite-based earth observation systems in cars for navigation and other applications.
