Space transportation has garnered significant interest from several space industry players in the past few years. In the past, most space transportation has been focused on cargo supply missions to the International Space Station (ISS) and launch services, but currently, this focus has shifted to in-space transportation, planetary explorations, crewed missions, sub-orbital transportation, and space tourism. Several companies, including SpaceX, Blue Origin, and Virgin Galactic, have been focusing on developing platforms such as rocket-powered sub-orbital vehicles that will enable the industry to carry out sub-orbital transportation and space tourism.

Read Report Overview: Sub-Orbital Reusable Vehicle Market

The global sub-orbital reusable vehicle market is estimated to reach $1.86 billion in 2031, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.89% during the forecast period 2021-2031. The major driving factor for the market's robustness will be focused efforts to enable space transportation, emerging start-ups in sub-orbital transportation, and increasing developments in low-cost launching sites.

With the growing need to make space accessible to the general public, several companies have been developing spacecraft as well as high-altitude balloons that will enable space tourism. Some of these companies include Virgin Galactic, Space Perspective, and Orbspace.

Propulsion System Segment to Lead the Sub-Orbital Reusable Vehicle Market

Sub-orbital reusable vehicles (SRVs) have been gaining attention for their benefits and establishing a new spaceflight industry. Comparatively, SRVs would be less expensive to develop and operate than orbital RLVs. The propulsion segment is expected to lead the market during the forecast period from 2021 to 2031. One of the factors contributing to this growth is the growing number of emerging companies involved in developing such reusable vehicles that will carry out sub-orbital transportation.

The space industry is continuously innovating and developing advanced technologies with the objective to enhance space capabilities. The industry is gearing up to develop vehicles that entail a major feature: reusability. Apart from that, companies are also developing high-altitude balloons that will perform space activities.

The sub-orbital reusable vehicle market research study offers a broad perspective on the analysis of the industry. The research is based on extensive primary interviews (in-house experts, industry leaders, and market players) and secondary research (a host of paid and unpaid databases), along with the analytical tools that have been used to build the forecast and the predictive models.

North America is expected to dominate the global sub-orbital reusable vehicle (SRV) market during the forecast period. The number of growing successful demonstrations and test flights carried out by key players in this market has created an opportunity not only for them but also for other players who want to enter the market. Apart from this, these successful demonstrations have proven the viability of these systems and may push these companies to commercialize their product offerings.
