According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Space Power Electronics Market is accounted for $202.70 million in 2021 and is expected to reach $590.39 million by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 16.5% during the forecast period. Space power electronics refers to the application of electronics on space stations, satellites, spacecraft, launch vehicles, and rovers to control and convert electric power from one form to other. It deals with the processing of high voltages and currents to deliver power that supports a variety of needs.

Market Dynamics:


Size reduction of space DC-DC converters

Miniature DC/DC converters are suitable for a wide range of applications on boards where space is at a premium. The satellite manufacturers are demanding compact-sized power converters in the current scenario. The compactness of converters benefits designers who need galvanically isolated output power or noise reduction in an analog circuit. The miniaturized version of DC-DC converters will offer very low output noise with an extended operating temperature, which will result in high switching frequencies. Hence, market players have the opportunity to reduce the device size to make DC-DC converters more effective.


Difficulties due to severe space environment

One of the major challenges for space power electronics is the vibration imposed by the launch vehicle. When the spacecraft leaves the Earth’s atmosphere there are many environment changes such as change in temperature and pressure which need to be handled by electronics. High levels of contamination on surfaces can contribute to electrostatic discharge. Satellites are also vulnerable to charging and discharging. Satellite charging is a variation in the electrostatic potential of a satellite, with respect to the surrounding low-density plasma around the satellite. The extent of the charging depends on the design of the satellite and the orbit. The atmosphere in LEO is comprised of about 96% atomic oxygen. The two primary mechanisms responsible for charging are plasma bombardment and photoelectric effects.


Rising demand for wide bandgap materials

Wide bandgap semiconductor materials are of specific interest, which has provided rapid developments in performance over the current standard, silicon, due to which there is an increase in demand for materials such as gallium nitride (GaN) and silicon carbide (SiC). These wide bandgap materials can operate at higher temperatures of up to 200°C as long as the package can tolerate this, while silicon is limited to 150°C. A wide bandgap semiconductor can handle nearly 10 times more voltage as compared to silicon and the switching speed/ switching frequency of SiC and GaN are also nearly 10 times higher than the silicon. Therefore, wide bandgap material power semiconductors are expected to make significant strides in the power industry within the next decade.


Complexities in design and integration process

The players operating in the power electronics industry are focusing on integrating multiple functionalities in a single chip, which results in a complex design. Furthermore, the designing and integrating complex devices require special skillsets, robust methodology, and a particular toolset, which increase the overall cost of the devices. Consequently, the high cost of the devices is expected to hamper the switching process toward advanced technological devices. Subsequently, evolving technologies generate demand for more functionalities to be integrated into system-on-chips (SoCs), making devices smaller and more efficient. All these factors are making their design more complex and increasing the difficulty in the integration process.

The power integrated circuit (IC) segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The power integrated circuit (IC) segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. Power integrated circuits consist of multiple power rails and power management functions within a single chip. Power ICs are frequently used to power small, battery-operated devices since the integration of multiple functions into a single chip result in more efficient use of space and system power.

The satellite segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The satellite segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period owing to the explosion of activities in the small satellite world, driven by technology breakthroughs, industry commercialization, and private investments. Satellites are increasingly being adopted in modern communication technologies. The introduction of wireless satellite internet and development of miniature hardware systems are exploiting numerous opportunities in the field of satellite-enabled communication. In addition, rapid growth in the NewSpace industry has led to the greater use of modular components like miniaturized rad-hard MOSFETs, gate drivers, DC-DC convertors and solid-state relays. There is a growing demand for space exploration, which enables small satellites to achieve attitude and orbit control, orbital transfers, and end-of-life deorbiting.

Region with highest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period due to the rising number of commercial space projects. Moreover, radiation-hardened electronics have the capability to withstand high temperature and radiation levels present in nuclear reactors, which is positively influencing their overall sales.

Region with highest CAGR:

North America is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period due to the growing demand for space power electronics in the North American region. The US government is increasingly investing in advanced space power electronics technologies to enhance the quality and effectiveness of satellite communication, deep space exploration. This rising investment on satellite equipment to enhance defense and surveillance capabilities of the armed forces, modernization of existing communication in military platforms, critical infrastructure and law enforcement agencies using satellite systems, are key factors expected to drive the space power electronics market in North America.
