According to the published reports available in the public domain on the international satellite market, the average annual revenue over the last three years, is approximately $200 billion (Rs. 13 Lakh Crore), which includes the launch services market (Rs. 0.37 Lakh Crore), satellite manufacturing (Rs. 1.07 Lakh Crore), ground equipment (Rs.3.85 Lakh Crore) and satellite services (Rs. 8.17 Lakh Crore). ISRO is providing the launch capacity, when available, for launching satellites on a commercial basis through Antrix Corporation Limited. During the last year (2015-16), Antrix earned a revenue of approximately Rs. 230 Crore through commercial launch services, which is about 0.6% of the global launch services market.
Hopefully these figures with go up with the 'privatization' of pslv. With LVM 3/ULV , we can establish ourselves as a key player in Space launch services market

Can we use our space capabilities to shoot down enemy satellite in case of war?
And can we use our space technology to develop ICBMs in short time?

GSLV-MarkII to be launched in August: ISRO Chairman AS Kiran Kumar


AS Kiran Kumar also elaborated on ISRO's plan to increase the number of satellite launches every year.

Indian Space Research Organisation is planning to increase the number of satellite launches every year, a top ISRO official said on Friday. "We are planning to increase the number of rocket launches from the present eight to 12 every year," ISRO Chairman AS Kiran Kumar said at a function in Chennai.

Kumar, who was here to participate in the MIT Alumni Golden Jubilee Celebrations, said the scientists were gearing up for the launch the GSLV-MarkII (Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle) carrying weather satellite in August.


Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, Director K Sivan said the weather monitoring and forecasting satellite on board Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle is also planned to be launched later this year. Last month, ISRO had put into orbit 20 satellites, including the earth observation satellite -- Cartosat-2, on board PSLV-C34 in a single launch from the spaceport of Sriharikota, about 135 kms from Chennai.
