In Space Manufacturing Market

In Space Manufacturing Companies - Allevi Inc. (US) and Global Graphene Group, Inc. (US) are the Key Players

The In-Space manufacturing market is estimated to grow from USD 4.6 Billion in 2030 to USD 62.8 Billion by 2040, at a CAGR of 29.7% from 2030 to 2040. North America is estimated to account for the largest share of the In space manufacturing market in 2030.

In-space manufacturing refers to the concept of producing finished or semi-finished products in space, typically in orbit, and then using these products either in space itself or on Earth. The market is is expected to cater to wide range of industries including manufacturing , technology, automotive, healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. The manufacturing of advanced materials such as Quantum dots , perfect spheres and uniformly cooled traction motor components that are currently challenging on earth, are cost effective and feasible to manufacture in space, due to the vacuum and microgravity environment that reduce the risk of contaminants, provide uniform flow and enable highly precise manufacturing processes to realize.

The In space manufacturing market based on the product technology has been segmented in to 12 segments: Perovskite Photovoltaics cell,Graphene and solid-state Lithium batteries ,Proton Exchange membrane cells,Traction motor,Hydrogen propulsion system ,Insulin,Electromagnetic metamaterials antennas,Perfect spheres bearings,Quantum Dots Display,Tissue /organ,Zblan fiber optics,Zeolite crystal. Based on the End Use, the market has been segmented into government & military and Commercial users. The applications of the high quality finished and semi finished products are in govt & military use cases include high end lasers, high quality aerospace bearing , space based repair and inventory of hardware such as antennas – among others. Based on the point of end use, the In space manufacturing market has been segmented into terrestrial and space markets. The terrestrial markets for high precision products are set to increase and the demand for certain products such as perovskite cells and metamterial antennas for use in space itself is expected to be a key offering for  space service providers such as satellite operators in the future.

 The In space manufacturing market is segmented according to four key regions in this report, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the  Rest of the World (RoW), along with their key countries.

In space manufacturing, which is currently at a nascent stage, is expected to become a core part of  future In-space economy. This economy is expected to generate revenue using assets in orbits or beyond Earth orbit for use in space as well as terrestrial consumption. Several underlying developments have lead to the increased momentum for space based manufacturing.  Key among them were microgravity experiments, reduced launch costs of commercial payloads and the advancements in additive manufacturing processes providing the synergies to demonstrate that in space manufacturing is feasible and in the near future is economically viable as well.

Major In-Space Manufacturing Companies Include:

  • Allevi Inc. (US)
  • Global Graphene Group, Inc. (US)
  • Le Verre Fluore Fiber Solutions(France)
