The primary driving factor supporting the growth of the small satellite market during the forecast timeframe is an increase in satellite manufacturers' attention on the creation of compact spacecraft due to the decreased cost and development time of small satellites. Through satellites, the Internet of Things (IoT) allows connection in industrial applications for production and equipment control. IoT-based devices share real-time data with processing units, allowing for better production and machine control. IoT devices leverage satellite connectivity for data transmission between IoT systems and components during the manufacturing process. As a result, satellite connectivity plays a role in the industrial sector and process automation, boosting the market's growth.

The small satellite market is likely to grow even faster as demand for high-resolution image services grows around the world. Small satellites are equipped with high-resolution cameras capable of collecting video at a rate of 25 frames per second. This satellite's video data and photos will be utilized to monitor forestry, agricultural, urban growth, and maritime transportation. Earth observation services cover a wide range of services, including agricultural field monitoring, detecting climatic changes, disaster mitigation, meteorology, and a variety of others. Currently, the US government is the largest purchaser of satellite imagery. As a result, most small satellite enterprises, both domestic and international, consider the US government as a good place to start.
