Global Space Industry Outlook, 2019 and Beyond

Global Space Industry Outlook, 2019 and Beyond

The space industry, across the value chain, is witnessing disruption from the influx of new space systems, products, and services. The industry is becoming highly competitive and a major focus is on developing flexible and affordable solutions for end customers. Satellite platforms are becoming more agile and robust with the execution of software-based satellites, electric propulsion systems, and spot beam offerings. Competition in the launch services market is pulling prices down and participants are increasingly investing in reusable vehicle capabilities. New entrants with the mega-constellation based business model are planning to disrupt both the connectivity and earth observation markets by offering affordable competitive and complementary solutions.

Multiple participants are planning to use satellite constellation to offer affordable connectivity and earth observation services. This is leading to a ramped up demand for manufacturing and launch services. The existing capabilities are not sufficient to meet this upcoming unprecedented demand. The major requirements are low-cost, low-lead time manufacturing and on-demand services. Industry participants are investing in serial production capabilities and dedicated launch services in order to bridge the upstream gap between demand and the supply. The ground segment is considered as a major bottleneck for the success of upcoming constellations. Development of low-cost platforms compatible ground systems will be a key business/revenue driver for low earth orbit based constellations.
