Satellites are used for a variety of purposes, some of which include weather monitoring, communications, navigation, space exploration, and various governmental and commercial applications.
A satellite -- when used in the contest of space/orbiting -- is an artificial device placed into Earth's orbit that serves one or more functions. There are also natural satellites, such as the moon, which also orbit Earth. However, the term satellite typically refers to a man-made device that's launched into orbit.
The world's first satellite was launched in 1957.
The Global Satellite Market: Trends and Opportunities (2015-2020) report by Orbis Research is a comprehensive study of the global satellite market. It analyzes everything from investment opportunities and growth, to market trends, forecast and more. In essence, this is a complete and in-depth analysis of the global satellite market. As explained in the report, the satellite market is a vital component in many sectors, including space and telecommunications. While satellites have been around for over half a century (first satellite reached orbit in 1957), advancements in modern technology have bolstered the market's growth, which is expected to continue in the years to come.
According to the report, developed western countries are expected to experience the strongest growth in the satellite market. This growth is due largely to the increased demand for high-definition satellite TV services, as well as intercontinental transmission and telecommunications services. With that said, the report also states that Middle East and North Africa will experience increased adoption and usage of satellite services and products, more so than the rest of the world.
