Global Space Launch Services Market Analysis 2019

Global Space Launch Services Market Analysis 2019

The Global Space Launch Services market is expected to reach $36.99 billion by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 16.0% during the forecast period. Demand for Commercial Non-Geostationary Satellite Orbit (NGSO) Launches, and increase in space exploration missions are few factors impacting the market growth. However, lack of operational measures for the disposal of orbital debris and limited intellectual resources and lack of skilled workforce pose challenge for industry.

Space launch is the earliest part of a flight that reaches space. Space launch involves liftoff, when a rocket or other space launch vehicle leaves the ground, floating ship or midair aircraft at the start of a flight. A satellite is an object that has been intentionally placed into orbit. These objects are called artificial satellites. Satellites are launched into earth’s orbits via launch vehicles. Expendable satellite launch vehicles can be used only once for launch of satellites.

Based on Orbit, the transformation of the space industry is largely driven by innovations in launch and satellite manufacturing technology. The continuously evolving cutting-edge technologies like Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) an application built upon Heisenberg’s, Planck’s and Feynman’s principles of quantum physics for secure distribution of very long encryption keys quantum electrodynamics (QED) are propelling astrospatial architecture. Increased use of commercial launch services, including low-earth orbit satellite launches and resupply missions to the International Space Station (ISS) has been a major catalyst for the dynamic commercial space industry. For companies wanting to move beyond orbit for reasons that range from asteroid mining to exploration mission’s problems that run the spectrum to the unpredictable nature.

By geography, North America is projected to dominate the market owing to the increasing demand for launch services for satellites, human spacecraft, and space probes. Furthermore, increased investments in space exploration missions are driving the region. Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to innovation in the commercial launch sector. China launched 2 new rockets supporting orbital satellite carriers.
