Space Mining Market Worth $4200 Million at 19.98% CAGR by 2022-2030 | Ongoing and Impending Space Mining Missions to Fuel Market Growth, Says The Brainy Insights

Increasing investments and government initiatives in space mining are propelling the growth of the space mining market.


Newark, May 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the report published by The Brainy Insights, the global space mining market is expected to grow from USD 947.56 Million in 2020 to USD 4200 Million by 2030, at a CAGR of 19.98% during the forecast period 2021-2030.

The space mining industry holds a lot of potential in the upcoming years. The asteroid contains metals, water, rear elements, etc. The asteroids are so close to the earth. Thus scientist thinks that space mining is very feasible. Therefore, many private companies and government space agencies are developing plans for space mining to get back the natural resources from space.

The asteroids are the leftover material that remained from the solar system formation or the debris from the destruction of the planet. There are tens of thousands of asteroids present in the orbit of the sun, and most of these are grouped inside an asteroid belt in between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. The asteroids are primarily categorized into the three types such as C type asteroid, M type asteroid, and S type asteroid. More than 75% of the asteroids are fit into the C type asteroid category, while 17% are classified into the S type asteroid category. The space mining industry is still in the nascent stage, and research and development are still undergoing.
The space mining market is experiencing high growth, owing to rising government and private companies’ initiatives for space mining. These private companies and government space agencies are developing prototypes for space mining. In addition to this, increasing investments in space research further boost the market’s growth over the forecast period. However, various challenges are present in the market, including high costs and a lack of a standard legal framework. Furthermore, space mining is expected to create an enormous environmental risk that affects both the earth and space.

The type C (Chondrite) asteroid type segment is accounted for the largest market share and valued at USD 535.2 Million in the year 2020

The asteroid type segment is divided into type C (Chondrite), type S (Stony), and type M (Metallic). The type C (Chondrite) asteroid type segment accounted for the largest market share and was valued at USD 535.2 Million in 2020. The C stands for carbon, and the surface of the type C (Chondrite) asteroid is coal black. These asteroids contain a large number of carbon molecules, clay, minerals, metals, and stones. Therefore, the space mining companies have a special interest in type C (Chondrite) asteroids.

The spacecraft segment dominated the global space mining market and valued at USD 434.4 million in the year 2020

The phase segment includes spacecraft design, launch, and operation. The spacecraft segment dominated the global space mining market and was valued at USD 434.4 million in 2020. The spacecraft is a vehicle designed to fly with craw or without the crew in outer space. These spacecraft are used for the variety of the purpose including navigation, communication, observation, and transportation. The spacecraft design plays a vital role in space mining missions. Thus, companies are highly investing in the improvement of spacecraft design for space mining missions.

The water segment is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR in the global space mining market over the forecast period

The commodity resources segment is divided into water, platinum group materials, and structural elements. The water segment is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR in the global space mining market over the forecast period. There are more than 1000 water-rich, or hydrated asteroids are present near the earth. Therefore, many space mining missions are expected to target the mine water from space.
