Global In-orbit and De-orbiting Services Market Report 2022: NewSpace Participants to Benefit from Innovation Culture that Integrates Automation and AI-enabled Robotics to Support Scalable Services


Dublin, April 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global In-orbit and De-orbiting Services Growth Opportunities" report has been added to's offering.

This study offers an assessment of evolving market segments within the space industry that are looking to support both the established incumbents and NewSpace market participants.

Specifically, discussion covers the evolution of the in-orbit and de-orbiting services market, including the fast-growing need for sustainable space operations and how that translates into the need for dedicated de-orbiting services and in-orbit repair/augmentation services.

Low Earth orbit (LEO) constellations involving multiple satellites are the key source of demand for these services. Once these mega constellations reach the end of their installation phase and enter their respective expansive/replacement phases, many satellites will need to be de-orbited and/or serviced.

Geosynchronous equatorial orbit (GEO) satellites will also require repair/augmentation when they near the end of their mission lives. As some of the satellites are being deployed with in-built de-orbiting capability, they might not become available for de-orbiting services. Some low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites might utilize their proximity to Earth such that their orbits decay organically, causing burnout when they re-enter the atmosphere (subject to varying timelines).

With multiple satellite constellations being installed to support commercial business models, the operators need to ensure their space assets are available at all times for uninterrupted downstream services. This requires both timely replacement of defunct satellites and the repair/augmentation of usable satellites (as per evolving mission requirements). This study discusses the key segments of demand for these services.
