Synopsis


The Global Satellite Launch Vehicle Market has been segmented based on orbit, number of Payloads, Launch Activity, Application, and Region. Based on orbit, the market has been classified as Sun-Synchronous Orbit (SSO), Medium Earth Orbit (MEO), Low Earth Orbit (LEO), and Geosynchronous Orbit (GEO). The number of payloads segment of the market has been divided into primary only, 2 to 5, and 6 to 10. In terms of launch activity, the market has been segregated into non-commercial and commercial. Based on application, the market has been segmented into research & development, navigation, communication, scientific, meteorology, earth observation, and remote sensing.


The market in Europe was valued at USD 728.9 million in 2018.


By region, the global satellite launch vehicle market has been segregated into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Europe accounted for the largest share of the satellite launch vehicle market. The satellite launch vehicle market in Europe is expected to register a CAGR of 2.15% during the forecast period. The growth of the market in Europe is driven by factors such as the growing adoption of advanced technologies and increasing investments by the government of countries such as Germany in the manufacturing of satellite are factors expected to drive the demand for satellite launch vehicles. Furthermore, increasing investment by the UK Space Agency in satellite launch vehicle companies is expected to drive the market growth in the UK. In France, the growing aerospace and defense industry is boosting the market growth.


The Geosynchronous Orbit (GEO) segment is expected to dominate the market.


A geosynchronous orbit is an orbit around the Earth, in which a satellite matches Earth's rotation on its axis in the orbital period. A geosynchronous satellite returns to the same position in the sky after each sidereal day. Hence, the GEO segment is expected to register a CAGR of 1.46% during the forecast period.
