Transformative Mega Trends, Disruptive Technologies, and Competitive Intensity Drive Sustainable Solutions

In recent years, demand for satellites for government and commercial applications has increased, resulting in a growing number of satellite launches for navigation, earth observation, communications, and more. With increased launches come increased costs. The space industry is an expensive one to operate in, and mitigation methods must be implemented to combat rising costs.

Reusable and modular launch systems have generated a lot of interest in the space industry, especially in terms of sustainability, which has enabled technological advancements. This area of the market holds significant potential as it can immensely reduce the costs associated with launches and space exploration.

This study examines information on the progression of reusable and modular launch systems; types of sustainable systems; key challenges, drivers and restraints; current and future system developments; and growth opportunities. It considers them from a qualitative standpoint to analyze the market potential of these sustainable systems.
