Electric Propulsion is a type of space propulsion that makes use of electrical power to accelerate the satellite by different possible electrical and/or magnetic means. The space-based activities market has witnessed a surplus demand for satellites during the last decade. Moreover, the adoption of Electric propulsion satellites has considerably made some advancements in space travel and space data collection techniques. Over the last couple of years, the demand for electric propulsion satellites has witnessed a substantial growth rate, and the demand for electric propulsion satellites is expected to rise more progressively during the forecast period.

Key Market Driver -

• Electric propulsion thrusters typically provide high speed at much less propellant consumption. • Increased number of launches for commercial and defence satellite applications. • Rising investments by key companies in space based activities is propelling the growth of market.

Key Market Restraint -

• Launches from the earth surface is not an option due to weak thrust produced. • High Capital cost , not suitable for developing countries.

Market Segmentation:

The market is segmented by Type, Application, Component, Technology, End-user and Region

Electric Propulsion Satellite types are further classified as Hybrid and Full-Electric. The demand for hybrid Electric Propulsion Satellite is anticipated to propel the market growth. Based on the application, the market is diversified into Earth Observation &Sciences, Navigation, Telecommunications, Space Science, and Interplanetary & Space exploration. The Interplanetary & Space exploration segment is anticipated to dominate the market due to exponentially increased MARS missions. Based on components, the market is divided into thruster components, propellant components, power components, and pointing mechanisms. Based on technology, the market is segmented into Gridded Ion Engine (GIE), Hall Effect Thruster (HET), High-Efficiency Multistage Plasma Thruster (HEMPT), Pulsed Plasma Thruster (PPT), Magneto Plasma Dynamic (MPD) thruster, Quad Confinement Thruster (QCT), Resistojet, Arcjet, Field Emission Electric Propulsion (FEEP) thruster, Colloid & electrospray thrusters, Electrode-less thrusters, Hollow cathode, and neutralizers. Based on the End-user the market is segmented into military, commercial, and after-market.

Key Players Covered:
