Planet Labs Inc. Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions
In 2019, Planet Labs has raised $168 Million in series D funding.
Planet Labs has raised $384m in venture funding and launched dozens of small satellites, which it calls Doves, which are together capable of capturing fresh images of the entire planet every day. The system is used by governments, private companies and non-profit organisations to monitor economic activity, agriculture and environmental change.
Planet Labs Inc. Risks and Challenges
The number of satellites that Planet has in orbit changes often. They are either launching more or the satellites are approaching their end of life and reentering the atmosphere and burning up.
Planet Labs Inc. Ecosystem, Partners, Resellers and SI
Planet expanded its partnership with Esri, the global market leader in GIS software. Esri will be reselling satellite imagery, extending access to Planet’s high cadence data set to the largest GIS community. With this agreement, Esri customers can directly buy Planet imagery. Along with the new reseller agreement, Planet and Esri will collaborate on developing advanced geospatial solutions for civil government and energy.
In June 2020, Planet partnered with Esri UK, a global market leader in geographic information system (GIS) software, location intelligence and mapping. The agreement enabled Esri UK to resell Planet imagery alongside powerful Esri ArcGIS visualization and analytical tools. Customers will be able to easily access, view and download Planet Basemaps from within their workflow for deep-level analysis using ArcGIS Pro geoprocessing tools. They will be able to build models, perform raster operations and apply machine learning to Planet’s analysis ready imagery data.
In March 2020, Planet partnered with Seisan, a custom software solutions and systems integration company specializing in leveraging geospatial technologies. By becoming a premiere Planet partner, Seisan offers next-level competitive advantages and insights into many industry verticals. Traditional satellite partners lack the ability to collect meaningful imagery at the speed in which Planet can. Leveraging this unique dataset, Seisan would be able to build machine learning imagery analysis along with traditional systems integration and data transformation techniques. These software solutions would bring an unprecedented level of geospatial awareness.
In December 2019, Planet updated its ArcGIS Pro integration, adding access to all Planet imagery, including PlanetScope, SkySat and Planet Basemaps, as well as leading public sector imagery, Landsat and Sentinel. Planet’s imagery, combined with ArcGIS software, empowers GIS workflows and enriches GIS databases with the most up-to-date imagery, leading to more timely and informed decision making.
