DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Small-satellite Launch Services Market, Quarterly Update Q1 2018, Forecast to 2030" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
This study forecasts small-satellite launch demand based on operators' maturity, mass classes, and user segments. It also details the projected small satellite launch capacity supply and analyzes the alignment of launch demand and supply for multiple forecast scenarios. The study includes new developments in the small-satellite value chain for Q4 2017.
Small satellites have evolved from being a technology demonstrator to providing low-cost operational services across distributed industry segments. It is therefore very essential to investigate the past and current state of the small-satellite market and forecast future scenarios.
Many small-satellite constellation operators have made progress with their development processes, and will generate continuous and recurring launch demand for installation and replacement missions of their planned satellite constellations. At present, nearly all small satellites use the rideshare capacity as a secondary payload on existing launch vehicles. This makes their project schedule and mission requirements dependent on the primary payload.
Further, the existing rideshare capacity will not be sufficient to address all of the small-satellite launch demand in the future. Many incumbent and new players have sensed the upcoming small-satellite demand and have started planning for providing dedicated services and launch flexibility to small satellite operators, in order to capture a good share of the future small-satellite launch market.
