Space Launch Services Market Forecasts to 2028 - Global Analysis By Launch Type (Re-Usable, Single Use), Launch Platform (Land, Air, Sea), Launch Vehicle (Small [Less than 300 ton], Heavy [Above 300 ton]) and By Geography
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Space Launch Services Market is accounted for $17.19 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $42.11 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 16.1% during the forecast period. The space launch services market is associated with the actions carried out by space launch service providers. It contains of a series of events such as ordering, conversion, construction, stacking and assembly, integration of payload, and launch.
According to a US survey, roughly seven-in-ten Americans (72%) say it is essential for the U.S. to continue to be a world leader in space exploration, and eight-in-ten (80%) say the space station has been a good investment for the country, according to a new Pew Research Centre. In 2021 for instance, Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) launched a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV), which carried Brazil’s earth observation satellite, Amazonia-1, and 18 other satellites belonging to the U.S., and similar such initiatives are expected to be conducted, which will contribute to growth market.
Rising space programs to improve industry progress
As it includes a variety of services designed to launch rockets that form satellites into space. Rising space programs are expected to enhance the demand for the product. Further, growing research and development costs will foster the demand for such services. Moreover, rising partnerships and joint ventures are predictable to improve the demand for the services. Additionally, strong demand for re-usable vehicles is predictable to drive the market growth.
Limited intellectual assets
The remarkable success of recent space exploration missions by space agencies in the Asia Pacific, such as the Indian Space and Research Organization (ISRO) and the China National Space Administration (CNSA), can be accredited to a large number of qualified scientists and personnel with relevant key skills in the province. Critical space operations rely heavily on intellectual assets, incorporating research & development, patents, software, human resources, and new organizational structures. These assets are strategic factors in value creation for firms. However, the expansion of the services sector, globalization, deregulation, and the emergence of new information and communication technologies has resulted in the scarcity of intellectual assets across the globe. This has resulted in a lack of space exploration programs in these countries, limiting the growth of the market.
Technological advancements in space industry
Due to technologies, like the miniaturization of satellites and payloads, manufacturers seek to leverage cost reduction while performing key operations in the value chain. Defence provinces across the world are also looking for less expensive multifunctional spacecraft. Recoverable launch vehicles are another technology that is a major opportunity for the space industry. Such technologies have made launches easier and cheaper, motivating the growth of the market.
International regulations are obstructing revenue growth of the market. The Outer Space Treaty, enacted in 1967, prevents governments from claiming any celestial bodies in space. Lack of property rights in outer space has dejected commercial corporations from investing in space research projects, and this is hampering prospects of future space programs. Additionally, lack of standards concerning disposal of space debris has resulted in a significant increase in orbital debris from previous missions, which could cause mishaps and accidents. These are other key factors threatening growth of the market to some extent.
Impact of Covid- 19
This market is predictable to be negatively affected during the COVID-19 pandemic owing to manufacturing constraints. The sudden spike in COVID-19 infections led to the imposition of stringent lockdown norms. This factor led to severe supply chain disruptions. Further, the restrictions on transport and travel created raw material shortages, thereby hindering space rocket production. Additionally, shortage of semiconductors is expected to disrupt spacecraft production, thereby affecting the overall industry.
The Pre-Launch segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The Pre-Launch segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period. These are accessible by the players considering for better opportunities and competitive advantage in the market. The rapid growth of this segment can be accredited to the heightened interest in pre-launch services, for instance, dispatch coordination and procurement, coordination and reconciliation, following and telemetry support, and the executive's administrations. As players remain to influence these opportunities, the global market is bound to enjoy significant demand in the years to come.
The Small Satellite (Less than 1000 Kg) segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The Small Satellite (Less than 1000 Kg) segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to increasing demand for earth observation and communication satellites this satellite will screen earth and space observation, navigation, IoT and communication, internet access, and control of potential threats from outer space. Due to small starlight’s applications 26 new businesses in space started which in turn contributes the segment growth.
Region with highest share:
North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period as there are large-scale investments by the massive pool of space agencies as well as the private firms for emerging advanced satellites, the district’s position in the global market would remain unparalleled during the review timeframe. Further, the presence of major players such as SpaceX, Lockheed Martin, Blue Origin, and United Launch Alliance is anticipated to propel the industry growth.
Region with highest CAGR:
Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to the increasing spending on the development of advanced satellites for communications, surveillance, navigation, and earth observation in India, China and several other South Asian countries. Significant players like China Great Wall Industry Corporation, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, and Antrix Corporation Limited based in the province also add to the market’s strength. In Asia Pacific, strong demand for surveillance, satellites, communication, and telecommunication may boost space launch services adoption.
