Increased deployment of small satellites and rising space exploration missions are expected to drive the satellite bus market The satellite bus market is estimated at USD 10.21 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 13.64 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.97% during the forecast period. Key factors such as technological advancements in bus components and migration of satellites to Geostationary Orbits (GSO) are expected to fuel the growth of the satellite bus market. However, factors such as complexity issues related to bus subsystems and scarce intellectual assets may act as restraints for the growth of the satellite bus market.
Based on satellite size, the large (>2,500) segment is expected to lead the satellite bus market while the small (1-500kg) segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period Based on satellite size, the large (>2,500) segment is estimated to lead the satellite bus market during the forecast period. Large satellites have large satellite buses and solar arrays to allow for larger number of transponders, large antennae, greater processing capacity, and greater solar energy production. The small (1-500kg) segment is projected to witness the highest growth. Various countries are focusing on developing small satellites owing to their low cost and short development time, which has been made possible due to the use of proven standard equipment and off-the-shelf components.
Based on subsystem, the Electric Power System (EPS) segment is expected to lead the satellite bus market, followed by the structures and mechanisms segment, during the forecast period Based on subsystem, the Electric Power System (EPS) segment is estimated to lead the satellite bus market during the forecast period, followed by the structures and mechanisms segment. The EPS manages the power input from solar cells, charges onboard batteries, and distributes electric power, at the required voltage, to all other subsystems of the satellite. This structure is the most important part of the satellite bus, as it holds all electronic and power components, a solar array structure, a propulsion module, and support for communication equipment.
North America is estimated to account for the largest share of the satellite bus market in 2017 North America led the satellite bus market in 2016 owing to advancements in propulsion technology and bus design. The satellite bus market in North America is estimated to account for largest market share in 2017.
