Small-satellite Launch Services Market: Quarterly Update Q2 2018 - Forecast to 2030 -


The "Small-satellite
Launch Services Market, Quarterly Update Q2 2018, Forecast to 2030"

report has been added to's

This study forecasts small-satellite launch demand based on operators'
maturity, mass classes, and user segments. It also details the projected
small satellite launch capacity supply and analyses the alignment of
launch demand and supply for multiple forecast scenarios. The study
includes the new developments in the small satellite value chain for Q1

Small satellites are at the spotlight of the evolution of space
industry. The small-satellite ecosystem is expanding at an accelerated
pace with new entrants offering innovative new space solutions and
existing players expanding their portfolio by investments in the
small-satellite value chain. It becomes very important to investigate
the past and current state of the small satellite market and forecast
the future scenarios.

Many small satellite constellation operators have advanced in their
development processes and will generate continuous and recurring launch
demand for their constellation installation and replacement missions. At
present, nearly all small satellites use the rideshare capacity as a
secondary payload on the existing launch vehicles. This makes their
project schedule and mission requirements dependent on the primary

Also, the existing rideshare capacity will not be sufficient to address
the small satellite launch demand in future. Many incumbent and new
players have sensed the upcoming small satellite demand and have started
planning for providing dedicated services and launch flexibility to the
small satellite operators in order to capture the future small satellite
launch market.
