Paris, Washington D.C., Montreal, Yokohama, 13 Jan 2020 (Euroconsult PR) – In its latest analysis of satellite manufacturing and launch services, “Satellites to be Built and Launched by 2028″, Euroconsult projects that the satellite market will experience a radical transformation in the quantity, value and mass of the satellites to be built and launched with a four-fold increase in the number of satellites at a yearly average of 990 satellites to be launched, compared to a yearly average of 230 satellites in the previous decade.
The market will reach $292 billion over the next decade. This reflects a 28 percent increase over the previous decade which totalled $228 billion in revenues.
