Satellite Bus Market to Reach US$ 19,3783.3 million by 2030

United States, New York, 2023-Jan-25 — /EPR Network/ —According to the Market Statsville Group (MSG), the global satellite bus market size is expected to grow from USD 12,071.2 million in 2021 to USD 19,3783.3 million by 2030, at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2022 to 2030. A satellite bus is a space vehicle’s structural body and major system that transports all of the satellite’s key components. A satellite bus is also a generic model around multiple-production satellite spacecraft are built. The satellite bus serves as a delivery mechanism for satellite payload, containing all of the satellite’s required components. Although each spacecraft is distinct in shape and size depending on the size of the satellite, all satellite buses are similar in construction. Furthermore, it is made up of multiple subsystems, each with its own purpose. Its structural design throws additional demands such as communication lines, onboard data processing, battery capacity, and data memory. The satellite bus architecture accommodates all spacecraft components, including payload instruments, intended to be employed in a space mission.

Increased government and space agency spending, an increase in the frequency of satellite launches, and new product releases in the satellite manufacturing market and launch systems all contribute to the global growth of the satellite bus industry. However, stringent government regulations for satellite deployment and use are issues impeding the growth of the satellite bus business. Furthermore, factors such as increased incorporation of new technologies and developments in satellite mission technologies are likely to give profitable prospects for global market growth.

COVID19 Impact on the Global Satellite Bus Market

The COVID-19 pandemic affects almost every element of global economic activity and humans. With the rise of COVID-19, multiple governments throughout the world have implemented limitations and controls on global commerce, affecting the supply chain for various sectors. Furthermore, the epidemic has presented an existential threat to millions of enterprises throughout the world, as well as creating an unemployment crisis for billions of workers owing to the globally imposed lockdown. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted critical supply chains throughout the space manufacturing industry. Many planned developments in the space industry have also been pushed back owing to the Covid-19 pandemic. The satellite industry has been impacted by the pandemic’s spread and the consequent slowdown in the global economy. Yet, the satellite bus market has been able to minimize the pandemic’s negative impacts due to advancements in expanding satellite missions over time.

Global Satellite Bus Market Dynamics

DriversIncreased Space Exploration Missions and Lower Space Launch Costs to Drive Market Growth

Commercial space exploration costs are expected to fall as smaller launch vehicles allow potential space market entrants easier access. The market’s leading manufacturers and governmental organizations place a premium on additive layer manufacturing (ALM) for the production of space-based products and services. The introduction of reusable launch vehicles and an increase in space exploration missions are expected to reduce the number of space launches. Over the last decade, governmental space agencies have prioritized interplanetary space exploration of the Moon, Mars, and other cosmic objects and the launch of space-based telescopic satellites housed in space buses.

RestraintsHigh maintenance costs

The NASA analysis on error cost escalation along the space project life cycle demonstrates the cost escalation in discovering and addressing faults and delays in satellite manufacture. The cost of error resolution is one unit of space system cost factors at the requirement stage, three to eight units at the design stage, seven to sixteen units at the manufacturing stage, twenty-eight units at the integration and testing stage, and more than 1500 units at the operations stage.

The design complexity and integration of different satellite instruments and subsystems in large-size satellite manufacture result in numerous faults at various phases of the satellite’s life cycle. This element is the primary cause of cost growth for error resolution at various levels.

OpportunitiesIncreasing Satellite System Advancements

The rising number of space exploration missions will likely support the market’s healthy expansion. Increased investments in space-related missions are expected to provide profitable commercial prospects. Satellite system technical advancements are predicted to allow for rapid industrial development. The growing number of private space enterprises is expected to be an important driver in driving market demand. Furthermore, deploying tiny satellites in applications such as earth observation will likely boost the market growth in the coming years.

Market players advancements in satellite buses are expected to increase market potential in the coming years. For instance, Orbital ATK introduced a new generation of satellite service vehicles in March 2018. The MEV is a variation of the Mission Robotic Vehicle, and the Mission Extension Pods are based on Orbital ATK’s ESPASat small satellite bus.
