Growth Opportunities in the Market

Dominance of satellite propulsion systems in the market: The satellite propulsion systems segment dominated the global Space Propulsion Systems Market Size in 2018 and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. Moreover, the development of all-electric satellites is expected to drive the segmental growth during the forecast period. Thus, it is expected to replace traditional chemical-based propulsion systems. The satellite propulsion systems accounted for more than 51% share of the space propulsion systems market.

The government expected to actively invest in space technologies:

The government segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Governments are actively launching satellites for earth observation and communication purposes. For instance, US-based Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) launched a small satellite through Rocket Lab, a commercial small satellite launches service provider. The satellite was launched to improve radio communication in the military.

Industry Updates

March 2022: Agile Space Industries, a Durango, Colorado-based firm focused on chemical propulsion in space, is additively manufacturing thrusters for Astrobotic Technology, space, and Mastan Space Systems' robotic lunar landers. Agile is specifically developing attitude control thrusters for Astrobotic's Griffin lunar lander. Agile is contributing thrusters for both attitude and axial control on Mastan’s Xylene and Tokyo-based space’s Series 2 lunar landers. The great majority of propulsion research has concentrated on launch vehicles in recent years. As NASA and commercial businesses prepare to launch a succession of robotic spacecraft to the moon in advance of the Artemis astronaut transfer missions, in-space propulsion is gaining increasing interest and financing.
