Did you know that Copernicus is already a part of your life? Air quality updates in your mobile app, an urban atlas that guide your city’s policies, agricultural data that lessens the environmental impact of your food, early warning systems for floods and forest fires that help your local emergency managers – all these activities benefit from Copernicus satellite data and information. Learn more about how the European Union’s Earth Observation programme is benefitting various economic sectors, businesses and users in Europe and around the world in the second edition of the Copernicus Market Report.

The second edition of the Copernicus Market Report details how Copernicus free and open data and information is used to tackle more and more societal, environmental and economic challenges – ranging from floods and wildfires to insect infestation and forest regrowth. The report was commissioned by the European Commission and is an update to the previous Market Report from 2016. It contains numerous new analyses, comparisons and deep dives into new benefit areas. The report provides an exhaustive account of the growth in the usage of Copernicus data and information, its increasing benefits and analyses the trends that will shape the future of the EU’s Earth Observation programme.
