Space Rover Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Application (Lunar Surface Exploration, Mars Surface Exploration, Asteroids Surface Exploration) and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI103373 | Status : Ongoing



Space Rover is a robotic vehicle that particularly designed for planetary surface exploration application. The primary function of this robotic vehicle is to move across the planet surface or other astronomical object surface and collect the necessary information about the terrain. Moreover, the planetary surface exploration device is used to collect the surface samples to do further research in the field of astronomy. Furthermore, the space research organizations have been sent several rovers on the moon, Mars, and asteroids as part of lunar surface exploration mission, Mars surface exploration mission, and asteroid surface exploration mission, respectively. Currently, NASA’s Curiosity rover is actively exploring the Mars surface.

Rising investment in the space research and development activities and growing demand for a fully autonomous robotic space vehicle are the key drivers of the space rover market. The growing trend towards the development of artificial intelligence technology-based space robot is further driving the market growth. However, high chances of system failure based associated with spacecraft landing is expected to hamper the market growth. In spite of this, the increase in number of private space robot manufacturing companies will be expected to create plenty of opportunities in the near future.

Key Market Driver -

• Rising investment in the space R&D will aid market growth • Growing demand for fully autonomous robotic space vehicle to boost market growth

Key Market Restraint -

• High chances of system failure to hamper market growth
