Pune, India, Aug. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global space debris monitoring and removal market size was USD 803.44 million in 2020. The market is likely to reach USD 1,362.67 million in 2028 from USD 866.42 million in 2021, at a CAGR of 7.84% in the 2021-2028 period. This information is provided by Fortune Business Insights™ in its report titled, “Space Debris Monitoring and Removal Market, 2021-2028.”

The rising curiosity of outer space exploration coupled with increasing technological advances made by the human race has led to a rise in space debris. In order to monitor and set limitations on this space rubbish, various organizations have set up a structure. For instance, as per the European Space Agency, ClearSpace-1 is expected to be the foremost space assignment to eliminate constituents of the debris from the earth's orbit. This mission is likely to be implemented by the year 2025. This is expected to reinforce market growth in the upcoming years.

COVID-19 Outbreak to Positively Impact Space Domain Market

The COVID-19 pandemic hit the world in 2019 and since has adversely affected the economic situation of the majority of the countries and domains as well. Nevertheless, it is witnessed that in the past few years, the happenings associated with space assessment have steadily changed towards exploitation. Moreover, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has radically obstructed the current space agendas and procedures done by the government as well as civic space organizations. This has presented a chance to the small and mid-size private firms to capitalize and bid space-based facilities to the leading players in this market.

For example, the U.S.-based venture known as OrbitGuardians delivers active space debris monitoring and removal services. The corporation utilizes technologies such as computer vision, artificial intelligence (AI), and the internet of things (IoT) to examine, observe, and eradicate space debris of a size lesser than 20 cm from space.

Drivers and Restraints

Leading Countries and Their Joint Efforts to Explore Space Set to Bolster Market Growth

The exponential increase in the demand for communication via the internet and network-based services worldwide has motivated space promotions over the last couple of years. In May 2021, the Starlink platform introduced by SpaceX was granted authorization from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to further launch 12,000 Starlink mini-satellites for network collection. Besides, the firm is scheduling to assemble a spectrum for the extra involvement of 30,000 Starlink satellites in the forthcoming years. 

Furthermore, in the last five years, the orbital unveiling efforts have been reported to be considerably increased in the countries such as the Russia, U.S., Japan, India, China, and France. Jointly, there are about 3,373 active functional satellites in the earth's orbit and are estimated to surge considerably in the upcoming years. This is projected to generate the the large number of space rubbish and will thrust the growth of the market.

However, the majority of the standards are constrained to the monitoring characteristic of space debris. The debris removal rules are not definite or enlisted by the top agencies and the governing organizations. This shall hinder the global space debris monitoring and removal market growth in the foreseeable future.
