Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Global Space-Based Fuel Management System Market Overview
The global space-based fuel management system market is estimated to reach $45,124.1 million in 2032 from $22,229.5 million in 2021, at a growth rate of 1.58% during the forecast period 2022-2032. The space-based fuel management system technology companies have witnessed the demand from the growing commercial industry. The ecosystem of the space-based fuel management system market comprises system manufacturers, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and end users.
Market Lifecycle Stage
In 1957, when the Sputnik-1 satellite was launched, it implemented a fuel regulator, which failed and resulted in excess fuel consumption. Since then, till 2022, propulsion system technologies and fuel management systems have come a long way in being cost-effective and efficient. Companies like Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin have shown their capabilities in the propulsion system and fuel management system department.
Currently, many space agencies and commercial companies across the globe have been focusing on developing low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite constellations. This would drive the market for the space-based fuel management system. Moreover, rising research and development activities to develop cost-efficient propulsion technologies and fuel management systems are other factors contributing to the growth of the LEO-focused space-based fuel management system market. For instance, in June 2022, ThrustMe signed a contract with European Space Agency (ESA) to provide an NPT30-I2-1.5U electric propulsion system for the GOMX-5 mission under ESA general support technology programme (GSTP).
