According to a recent report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Satellite Bus Market by Subsystem, Application and Satellite Size: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021–2030,” the global satellite bus market was valued at $11.91 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $20.84 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.8% from 2021 to 2030.

North America dominated the market, in terms of revenue, followed by Asia-Pacific, Europe and LAMEA. U.S. garnered the highest share in 2020. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period, owing to increase in space launch activities carried out across the region.

Satellite bus or spacecraft bus is defined as the body of a satellite, which holds all the necessary components required for proper functioning of a satellite. Satellite bus is considered as an essential part used in a satellite as it stores all the necessary components required for functioning of satellite. Satellite bus is used a transport mechanism for a satellite payload. Although each satellite is different from each other in the term of size and shape, all satellite buses are similar in makeup.

Satellite bus consists of several subsystems, each with a unique purpose. The structural subsystem consists of primary structure of spacecraft and supports all spacecraft hardware, including payload instruments.

Orbit control subsystems (station keeping) helps in sustaining a satellite in its proper orbit location. Satellite thermal control systems are developed to control the large thermal gradients generated in the satellite.

With increased production and launch of new satellites across the globe, numerous companies operating in production of satellite bus has carried out developmental strategies, which has supplemented growth of the market across the globe. Moreover, governments across the globe has been continuously investing in numerous space-based programs to keep a strong hold in space which has created ample opportunities for the growth of satellite bus market across the globe.
