Small Launch Vehicle Market Size is Expected to total US$ 3,139.9 million by 2030

United States, New York, 2023-Jan-25 — /EPR Network/ —According to the Market Statsville Group (MSG), the global small launch vehicle market size is expected to grow from USD 1,053.6 million in 2021 to USD 3,139.9 million by 2030, at a CAGR of 12.9% from 2022 to 2030. A small launch vehicle (SLV) is used to place payloads into different orbits that are made up of lightweight satellites or payloads. The rapid deployment of tiny and microsatellites into low earth orbit (LEO) for various commercial, academic, and military uses has boosted the demand for specialized SLV launches. In addition, over the next ten years, the worldwide SLV market is anticipated to benefit from the growing use of advanced manufacturing techniques to produce lightweight components and reusable launch vehicles and the decline in overall launch costs across major global sites.

In the coming years, the need for small satellite applications in various verticals such as government, industrial, and the military is likely to fuel the growth of the small launch vehicle market. Furthermore, rising demand for small satellite constellations for satellite applications such as communication, navigation, and planet observation drives the small launch vehicles market. Furthermore, as demand for small satellite constellations grows and significant space organizations boost their efforts in building SLVs, the SLV market is expected to expand rapidly. However, the high cost of launching small launch vehicles is projected to limit market growth throughout the forecast period.

COVID19 Impact on the Global Small Launch Vehicle Market

COVID-19 can directly impact production and demand, cause supply chain and market disruption, and have a financial impact on firms and financial markets. The sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had resulted in the implementation of stringent lockdown regulations across several nations, causing disruptions in import and export activities of Small Launch Vehicle and had a negative impact on the Small Launch Vehicle Market as industrial production was interrupted, supply was hindered global lockdown forced people to stay in, and government funding for rocket manufacturing and small vehicle launch application was reduced as the government focused on vaccination. Economic downturns were among the causes that contributed to low market growth during the pandemic.

Global Small Launch Vehicle Market Dynamics

DriversUtilisation of small satellites for several applications

The utilization of small satellites for wide applications such as Earth observation, communication, and space exploration is likely to propel the SLV industry forward. Several programs, like Airborne Launch Assist Space Access (ALASA), are being developed to produce a low-cost way of launching tiny satellites. ALASA is also projected to provide compact launch systems with thorough testing of new technologies and research and development activities to enable more reasonable, regular, and dependable access to space for less than $1 million each launch.

RestraintsHigh cost of launching SLVs 

SLVs differ from conventional heavy launch vehicles primarily in terms of vehicle performance, deciding how much payload the vehicle can deliver to a given orbit, and launching cost. With scarcity of SLVs on the market, a lack of specialized launch sites, and high ground operating costs, the cost of launching SLVs is now higher than that of conventional launch vehicles, limiting the market growth.

OpportunitiesIncreasing Orbital Launch Vehicle Development Driven by Growing Adoption of Orbital Launches for Small Satellites

Weather forecasting, surveillance, Earth observation, navigation, communication, and meteorology are all applications for small satellites. Moreover, human space exploration and the construction of new space stations have recently necessitated a high frequency of launches. As a result, academia and the scientific community are becoming increasingly interested in building and constructing small launch vehicles (SLVs) capable of multiple launches and delivering tiny satellites into various orbits at a low cost.
