The presence of one of the biggest space research organization “NASA” has also propelled the manufacturing of satellites with advanced technology which are involved in the R&D activities. These factors are driving the market in North America.

Satellite Manufacturing Market Drivers

Surge in use of satellites in Military applications:

Surge of satellites in military applications have resulted in the development of small bodyguard satellite and space based laser defenses to protect important space assets. Many of the countries are purchasing satellites to support their own strategic Military activities. In APAC region China is the fastest growing country in civil, military and commercial capabilities. China is planning to launch two BeiDou Satellites into geostationary orbit in 2020. China plans to follow up this mission in late 2020 with Chang’e-5, a mission that aims to return samples from the Moon back to Earth for further study. U.S and other countries are also involved in the planning and launch of the satellites aiming to strengthen their military activities and communication within their armed forces. These factors are driving the market growth.

Technological advancements and growth in internet:

The rising use of internet applications have resulted in the manufacturing of more advanced satellite for communication purposes. The satellite are connected to the ground stations through which they are controlled. The antennas on satellites and ground stations, the landlines that connect ground stations to terrestrial networks, and the user terminals that connect to satellites are all potential intrusion points for cyber-attacks. Cyber-attacks can be used to monitor data traffic patterns. A cyber- attack on space systems can result in data loss, widespread disruptions, and even permanent loss of a satellite. To control all these situations the major key players are manufacturing the satellites with advanced capabilities. Rising internet penetration is propelling the growth of satellites used for communication purposes. These factors are fueling the growth of the market.

Satellite Manufacturing Market Challenges

Complex Programming and Design related Risks:

Although the satellite are used in communications and many space missions but most of the space related missions fails due the complexity related to the designing and programming of the satellites. The designers relay on numerical modelling of vehicle aerodynamics rather than actual wind tunnel tests. These factors are causing major restrain in the market growth.

Satellite Manufacturing Market Landscape

Satellite Manufacturing Market is dominated by major companies such as Airbus Defense and Space, OHB SE, Boeing Defense, Space and Security, JSC Information Satellite Systems, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Space Systems, Thales Alenia Space, Capella Space, Ursa Space Systems among others.

Acquisitions/Technology Launches
