NSR Report Deliverables

NSR delivers clarity and critical market insight.

NSR’s Satellite Manufacturing and Launch Services, 8th Edition presents the industry benchmark on global demand for satellites in the coming decade. As both military and commercial satellite operators broaden their concept of operations to include multiple payloads, orbits, and service models, manufacturers and launch service providers are challenged to deliver compelling, innovative solutions addressing and anticipating operator requirements. NSR’s SMLS 8th Edition report provides must-have information for the backbone of the satellite industry, offering a critical view into historic trends, evolving requirements, and upcoming demand for satellite manufacturing and launch services across all user types, applications, and regions.

NEW in this Edition: Assessment of the Changing Dynamics in Satellite Operations

SMLS8 Addresses the Key Questions Facing Today’s Satellite Manufacturing and Launch Players:

  • Will GEO communications satellite orders return to the former 20-25 per year average?
  • What impact is the rise of non-GEO constellations having on the industry?
  • Which verticals present the best revenue opportunities for manufacturers and launch service providers?
  • What changes will new vehicles drive in the launch competitive landscape?
  • How will the rise of in-orbit servicing capabilities affect demand for new satellites?

Bottom Line: How will emerging technologies and evolving market dynamics drive changes to operator requirements, and will manufacturers and launch service providers rise to meet this demand?
