The report provides an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. Commenting on the report, an analyst from the Telecom team said: One of the major trends witnessed in the market is the formation of the GEOSS. GEOSS is an internet-based platform that allows users of Earth observation data to access, search, and use the data, information, tools, and services for their needs. GEOSS is mainly used to develop a data-driven system to investigate the Earth's past, present, and future scenarios and models. In addition, the GEOSS is expected to address several societal benefit areas of critical importance such as disaster, climate, water, weather, ecosystem, agriculture, biodiversity, health, and energy. The GEOSS was developed by the GEO, a voluntary partnership of governments and international organizations, to utilize the growing potential of Earth observations. The GEO has been coordinating several efforts to build GEOSS on the basis of a 10-year implementation plan. The GEOSS system is expected to be completed by 2015. Thus, the formation of GEOSS is an emerging trend that is expected to have a positive influence on the growth of the market during the forecast period.

According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the technological advancements in satellite development and imagery. Advanced image-enhancing technology, high-resolution cameras, and advanced remote-sensing technology have enhanced the quality of satellite-based Earth observation images. One of the major challenges in the market is the requirement for high initial investment.
