Orbital Spaceflight Market Outlook – 2027

An orbital spaceflight, also known as the orbital flight, is a spaceflight in which the spacecraft is placed on a trajectory such that it could remain in space for at least one complete orbit. To attain this around the earth, the spacecraft must be on a free trajectory having a high altitude at perigee around 80 kilometers.  This boundary of space is decided by NASA. In addition, to remain in the orbit, this altitude requires an orbital speed of 7.8 km/s. However, the orbital speed is slower for higher orbits, it requires a greater delta to attain them. Due to the atmospheric drag, the lowest altitude can complete at least one full revolution of 150 kilometers without propulsion.  

COVID-19 scenario analysis

  • Orbital spaceflight production is going to be more agile after the end of COVID-19.
  • Owing to the lockdown implemented across various countries, national and international transport have been hampered, which has significantly impacted the supply chain of orbital spaceflight across the globe, thereby increasing the supply–demand gap. 
  • Thus, insufficiency in raw material supply is expected to hamper the production rate of orbital spaceflight, which negatively impacts the market growth. 
  • However, this situation is expected to improve as government has started relaxing norms around the world for resuming business activities.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis 

The global market for orbital spaceflight is driven by rising space exploration missions due to upsurge in space budgets of developed nations. The growing competition among the nations is urging the major participants to rapidly foster space missions, which, in turn, creates a significant demand for the global orbital spaceflight market. In addition to this, rise in government spending is expected to bolster the space missions, substantially pushing the demand for spacecraft for orbital spaceflight during the forecast timeframe. Moreover, the proliferation of technology is boosting the application of advanced spacecraft in the orbital spaceflight, while reducing the need for astronauts. This is anticipated to dominate the global orbital spaceflight market owing to similar space exploration missions over the forecast period.  

The global orbital spaceflight market trends are as follows:

Rising space exploration programs

The space exploration programs have gained rapid consideration over the past few decades where major nations dominate the global market by justifying their space capabilities. In addition to this, growing space R&D programs have proliferated the growth of the global orbital spaceflight market. Moreover, rapid collaborations among international space institutions for the integration of technologies and investment is bolstering the global market for space missions, which, in turn, is fueling the demand for the orbital spaceflight market. The rise in space exploration missions could also be attributed to the increment in space budget and government spending. Furthermore, miniaturization of the components of spacecraft for orbital spaceflight is likely to push the application and demand for the global orbital spaceflight market over the forecast timeline. 

Technological advancements to foster the application

The global orbital spaceflight market has been broadly driven by technologies used in spacecraft and orbital spaceflight. Here technology is anticipated to take a lead during the forecast period, owing to the rising frequency of innovations in space missions planned onto mars and moon. In addition to this, the space programs that have not been successful in reaching the Mars are also creating a significant demand as the entry of satellites into orbits need to be monitored for further communication via orbital spaceflight. Further, the incorporation of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies in the space exploration missions are boosting the growth of the global orbital spaceflight market.
