International space laws and constraints and lack of measures for disposal of space debris are some key factors expected to hamper market revenue growth to a major extent. International space prohibits ownership of any celestial body in space, which has restricted investment avenues from private businesses that are looking for prospects to invest in space missions for commercial purposes. Moreover, Lower Earth Orbit (LEO) is scattered with space debris from previous missions, which can cause accidents or other complications and issues.

Growth Projections:

Global space launch services market is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 14.6% over the forecast period and revenue is projected to increase from USD 6.59 billion in 2021 to USD 19.53 billion in 2030. Rising government expenditure in space programs and increasing participation of private companies in space exploration is driving market growth and the trend is projected to continue between 2022 and 2030.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis:

COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the manufacturing of rockets and satellites and launching services, thereby limiting growth of the global space launch services market. Lengthy lockdowns had significantly disrupted supply chains and delayed launches and development of satellites, lunar rovers, and others. However, the global market recovered, and services were resumed since mid-2021. This has led to scaling up of manufacturing and development of systems and requirements for upcoming missions.

Current Trends and Innovations:

Increasing geopolitical conflict has led to modernization of defense capabilities. Developed countries are working towards developing satellites that can be used to boost defense capabilities and improve communication networks, which has led to increasing pace of the space race. In addition, companies in the market are working on improving current space technologies in order to reduce overall costs of space missions and to enable better possibility of manned space programs. Similarly, major market players are investing significantly in research and development to enable rapid progress in space tourism.

Geographical Outlook:

Europe is expected to register a steady revenue growth rate during the forecast period. Key factors contributing to steady revenue growth rate are rising government investment in research and development of new space technologies, increasing technology transfer from the U.S., and increasing number of public-private partnerships.
