Increase demand for space tourism

Private entrepreneurs are revolutionizing the technology-constrained space travel industry that was once dominated by national space agencies. Exciting scientific breakthroughs are made possible by large sums of money. While most commercial aerospace companies focus on research, there is a growing market for transporting non-astronauts into space as flights become more autonomous and no longer require a professional astronaut to control the vehicle. The success of the first tourist space flights in 2022 was a major turning point.

Recent efforts have generated interest and headlines, leading to increased investment in private space companies. For example, many special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) consider acquiring space companies based on projected future revenues, allowing them to go public. The main space tourism companies are Virgin Orbit (USA), Blue Origin (USA), Arianespace (France) and The Boeing Company (USA).

Government investments in space technology

The US government is investing in every part of the space launch services ecosystem and will likely continue to invest upstream and downstream. For many countries, public investment, typically in R&D and startups, responds to societal challenges and facilitates independence from imports, eventually becoming a global solution provider in multiple sectors, including space. . Many governments also recognize that they do not have a well-developed venture capital industry like that in the United States; therefore, they provide venture capital (VC) funds.

Launch single-use segment is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period

Based on launch type, the space launch services market is segmented into single-use launch and reusable launch. The launch single-use segment is expected to dominate the category and reach a market value of $19,331 million by 2027. The share of single-use launches by launch type segment is 56.7% in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.6%.
