Research and Markets: Analysis of the Global Space Launch Market: A Gradual Shift Toward Commercialization

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6pxtd6/analysis_of_the) has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's new report "Analysis of the Global Space Launch Market: A Gradual Shift Toward Commercialization" to their offering.

This research service forecasts global revenue in the space launch market. This study further forecasts the market's drivers, restraints, and general trends from 2013 to 2020. Program analysis affecting the market is also provided and discussed.

The space launch market is segmented in several ways including: by mission, by application, by orbit type, and by launch vehicle type.

The regions covered include: the U.S., Russia, China, France/EU, Japan, and India.

The space launch market in this study considers the costs of using expendable launch vehicles to place various payloads into orbit. It does not factor in support costs after launch or the costs of maintaining launch facilities.

Executive Summary

- Due to decreasing government spending worldwide, space launch expenditures within established national programs will steadily decrease as cost cutting measures are implemented.

- Global space launch expenditures will spike in 2013 and 2014, due to a cycle of satellite constellation replenishment, then stabilize as cost-saving measures are implemented and there is an increase in activity in nations such as India, China, and Brazil.

- Because the space launch market is currently dependent on national governments, revenue is broken out by country.

- The top three space launch countries, Russia, China, and the United States (U.S.), generated 80.6 percent of the market revenue in 2011.

- France, representing the European Union's (EU) space launch market, was responsible for over percent of 2011 revenue. This was more significant than China's nearly percent share because China's commercial launch revenue was negligible.

- The entire commercial launch market is transitioning from the oligopoly of United Launch Alliance (ULA), Arianespace, and International Launch Services (ILS) to a more competitive market with several smaller companies that have cost-effective launchers.

- The small payload launch market will be coming into focus as several companies vie to launch smaller satellites using fixed-wing aircraft as a base for launching rockets. This method is being marketed as a lower cost alternative than expendable launch vehicles (ELVs).

Key Questions This Study Will Answer

- Is the space launch market growing, how long will it continue to grow, and at what rate?

- What segments, technologies, and services make up the market?

- What are the leading market drivers, restraints, and challenges?

- What are the top programs for the space launch market?

- What technologies and services will be emphasized?

- What companies and/or countries are leading the market?
