Space Robotics Market

Space Robotics Companies - Altius Space Machines (US) and Maxar Technologies (US) are the Key Players

Space robotic solutions are an essential part of space operations; these solutions are required for space operations in earth orbit for tasks effectively and affordably, with limited risks for the manufacture of satellites in space. Robots have various uses in space applications, such as in-space 3D printing, space operations/scientific experimentation, space transportation, space exploration, and in-space maintenance & inspection. Spacecraft and rovers form a part of planetary robotics and are used to explore the solar system or planetary bodies. Space robotics helps in the servicing and maintenance of satellites as well as assists in the delivery of technologies necessary for object handling, manipulation, and assembly of satellite parts and International Space Station construction equipment. The growth of the space robotics market can be attributed to factors, such as increasing investments in space exploration missions, demand for satellite servicing, and on-orbit manufacturing and assembly, debris removal, and technological advancements in autonomous systems. These are key the factors anticipated to drive the growth of the space robotics market during the forecast period.

The space robotics market is estimated to be USD 2.88 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 4.36 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 8.64 % from 2018 to 2023. Growth of this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for space robotics for space operations, such as satellite servicing, on-orbit assembly and manufacturing, satellite servicing & maintenance, and deep exploration activities.
