Space Mining Market

Key strategies adopted by the major players in the Space Mining Market

The space mining market is estimated to grow from USD 0.65 billion in 2018 to USD 2.84 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 23.6%. Ongoing and impending space mining missions, increasing investments by private stakeholders in asteroid mining companies, and growing number of government initiatives to frame regulations with respect to asteroid mining are the major factors driving the growth of the space mining market.

Government initiatives resulting in growing number of start-ups, easily accessible near-earth asteroids (NEAs), and adoption of in-situ resource utilization (ISRU) practice in space exploration provide several opportunities for the growth of the space mining market.

The key strategies adopted by the major players in the space mining market include product developments, partnerships, agreements, funding activities, collaborations, and expansions. Companies such as Deep Space Industries (US), Planetary Resources (US), Moon Express (US), ispace (Japan), and Asteroid Mining Corporation (UK) have adopted these strategies to expand their customer base and enhance their product portfolio.
