The satellite-based EO market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 9.37% during the period 2016-2020. 

Satellite-Based EO Market in the US 2016-2020, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the satellite-based EO market in the US for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of data and VAS, defense and intelligence sectors and applications required by the insurance, manufacturing and agriculture sectors of industry. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market. 

An emerging trend in this market is the use of nanosatellites and microsatellites. The growing demand for hyperspectral imaging systems and enhanced computational and communication systems enables satellite providers such as Planet Labs and Terra Bella (Skybox Imaging) to launch nanosatellites and microsatellites into space. These small satellites are used in navigation and mapping applications for precise tracking and spotting. 

According to the report, a key growth driver in this market is the widening application base of EO satellites. EO satellites are used to access data and satellite images pertaining to civil construction, weather forecast, climate, disasters, agriculture, and biodiversity. Around 190 satellites were orbiting the planet as of January 2014. It is likely that more than 350 EO satellites will be placed in the orbit between 2015 and 2022 due to the widening application base of EO satellites. 

Further, the report states that one major challenges which could hamper market growth is the lack of standardization and policy related issues. Commercial satellite operators in different countries have to follow national policies and this leads to global interoperability issues.
