Recent Developments in the Global Space-Based Edge Computing Market
- In March 2023, Nearby Computing signed a partnership with Cellnex Telecom for the demonstration of 5G and edge computing infrastructure. The demonstration also shows the integration of 5G along with edge can be implemented into smart sensors on the ground and space for the use of serving smart cities.
- In November 2022, Ubotica Technologies and Open Cosmos signed an agreement to deploy CogniSat-6, an AI-focused CubeSat flight with autonomous skills. It’s equipped with the CogniSat edge computing platform to LEO and will provide reactive retargeting to optimize image gathering scope in-orbit.
- In October 2022, Exo-Space signed a contract with Sidus Space to integrate a payload into its hybrid 3D-printed satellite LizzieSat, which is expected to launch sometime in 2023.
- In August 2022, OrbitsEdge signed a long-term launch agreement with Vaya Space, with a launch slotted for the fourth quarter of 2023. The agreement aims to develop high-performance computing data centers that can handle and evaluate data generated in space, which will be launched into low Earth orbit (LEO) above the cloud. By using this approach, the present bandwidth restrictions and the transmission delay brought on by sending huge amounts of satellite data to Earth for processing are reduced.

Global Space-Based Edge Computing Market Overview
The global space-based edge computing market is estimated to reach $1,807.3 million in 2033 from $200.9 million in 2022, at a CAGR of 22.64% during the forecast period 2023-2033. The space-based edge computing market companies have witnessed the demand from the growing defense industry. The ecosystem of the space-based edge computing market comprises component manufacturers and end users.
Market Lifecycle Stage
Edge computing emerged with the launch of Akamai's content delivery network (CDN) in the 1990s. The idea was to physically move nodes closer to the user to deliver stored content like videos and pictures. In the late 1970s, when big tech companies like IBM, Intel, Microsoft, and Apple began to emerge, the development of microprocessors and other micro-tech led to the creation of the first desktop computers. Since then, the market for edge computing has been growing and will continue to grow. Space-based edge computing is a part of edge computing that has also been becoming popular because of the growing demand for latency reduction in space and increase in demand for shifting data centers in space.
Currently, many space agencies and commercial companies across the globe have been focusing on developing low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite constellations for communication purposes. This would drive the market for the space-based edge computing market. Moreover, rising research and development activities to develop cost-efficient edge computing components are other factors contributing to the growth of the space-based edge computing market. For instance, in March 2023, Nearby Computing signed a partnership with Cellnex Telecom for the demonstration of 5G and edge computing infrastructure. The demonstration also shows the integration of 5G along with edge can be implemented into smart sensors on the ground and space for the use of serving smart cities.
