Commercial Sub-orbital and LEO Spaceflight Services Market Assessment

Commercial Sub-orbital and LEO Spaceflight Services Market Assessment

This study covers the commercial spaceflight market that provides dedicated small-satellite launch services to small-satellite operators. The forecast data includes small-satellite, low Earth orbit (LEO) payload and revenue forecasts accounting for the price reduction due to growing competition and discussions on the fast-growing earth-observation domain. Key industry participants involved in developing LEO launch capabilities are profiled for an overview of the existing and emerging competition in this domain. Stakeholders interested in learning about multiple LEO launch capabilities under development and the market sizing for launch services for small satellites will benefit from this market insight.
