What is Space Propulsion? What is the expected Size/Share of the Space Propulsion Market?

  • Report Overview

Space propulsion is used to accelerate spacecraft and artificial satellites by producing propulsive force or changing the velocity.  The propulsion system includes tanks, pumps, pressure regulators, propellants, power heads, and rocket nozzles. Most spacecraft today are driven by heating the reaction mass engine and ejecting out mass at high speed into the air or space. This type of engine is called a rocket engine which plays a key role in acceleration, attitude control and drag makeup.

When launching a spacecraft from the Earth, a propulsion system is used to provide a net positive acceleration. Aeronautics and space agencies are increasingly using many space propulsion systems due to the presence of a broad range of satellites and space crafts. Many technological developments and the use of composite materials in the manufacturing of components are fueling the growth of the space propulsion market.

Growth Driving Factors

  • Increasing demand for advanced propulsion systems to push the market growth

The growing investment, rising growth in space missions for exploring, and rise in conflicts on borders, are boosting the space propulsion market size. Rockets are used as low Earth orbit (LEO) elevators due to their cost-effectivity, low launch cost, and availability of off-the-shelf satellite components. Thus increasing development of reusable rockets and their demand is anticipated to accelerate the space propulsion industry. For instance, in Oct 2022, OneWeb successfully launched 36 new LEO (Low Earth Orbit) satellites into its constellation from India. This led to enhance global coverage and form connectivity in India and South Asia. A rise in space exploration missions, growing R&D activities, and growing demand for satellite data are the market trends driving the overall demand.

Moreover, a surge in the collaboration between government and private companies is another factor propelling the market growth. The rise in demand for advanced propulsion systems, as well as propulsion systems produced through 3D printing, is predicted to create lucrative opportunities in the space propulsion market. In addition, the increase in demand for satellites for satellite imaging applications is augmenting the industry's growth.

Segmental Analysis

  • Non- Chemical propulsion type dominates the market over the forecast period

Based on type, the non-chemical propulsion category witnessed the largest space propulsion market share. Solar propulsion is the latest propulsion technology that is cost-effective and safer. It offers superior propulsive power to assist different space exploration missions. In a Laser propulsion system, a spaceship can receive velocity through two methods. The first method transfers energy by the application of photon radiation pressure.

  • The thrusters segment is expected to witness the major revenue share

By system, the thrusters category is predicted to account for the highest market share in the space propulsion market because thrusters are majorly used for orbital station-keeping, attitude control, maneuvering, or long-duration, low-thrust acceleration orbit control of satellites. These systems can be classified as either pressure-supplied or pump-fed. Pressure-supplied thrusters are used in auxiliary propulsion as well as space propulsion applications which require low system pressures. However, a pump-fed system is used in a high-pressure, high-performance application.

  • The Government and Defense segment holds the largest revenue share during the anticipated period

On the basis of end-use, the Government and Defense generate the greatest market share throughout the foreseen period. A military satellite is an artificial satellite used for military purposes. It has been launched into orbit to perform military activities on the surface of the Earth, including communications, navigation, and reconnaissance.
