Global launch system payload market is expected to grow at double digit CAGR during the forecast period on account of increasing application of satellites for real-time tracking and monitoring systems. In 2017 alone, about 385 satellites were launched which is positively influencing the growth of the market. Before 2010, space technology-based projects were only led by the governments of various countries, however after that private players have started emerging in the space technology field. Moreover, several academic institutions have also started launching small satellites for various applications, which is anticipated to drive the market through 2024.

Global launch system payload market can be segmented based on class, orbit and end user. In terms of class, the market can be segmented into small satellite, medium satellite, large satellite and others. Increasing demand for satellite constellations is responsible for the largest share of the small satellite segment as satellite constellations comprise small satellites. Small satellite segment consists of satellites with small size and mass upto 1000 kg, the segment is anticipated to grow at an impressive rate during forecast period as well. On the basis of orbit, the market can be segmented into geosynchronous earth orbit (GEO), medium earth orbit (MEO) and low earth orbit (LEO). Low earth orbit is the leading segment and the segment is expected to continue its dominance during forecast period as most of the space related missions are targeted at low earth orbit.

Regionally, the market for launch system payload is gaining traction and expanding to various regions including Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe & CIS, South America and Middle East & Africa. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest rate due to efforts by the private players and government in the countries such as India, China, among others.

The major players operating in global launch system payload market include Arianespace, Blue Origin, China Aerospace Science and Technology, Eurockot Launch Services, International Launch Services, Interorbital Systems, ISC Kosmotras, United Launch Alliance, Virgin Orbit, SpaceX, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Rocket Lab USA, Inc., Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd., Lockheed Martin Corporation, etc. Major companies are developing advanced technologies and launching new products in order to stay competitive in the market.
