With the first commercial servicing spacecraft slated to launch in 2018, NSR’s industry-first In-Orbit Servicing Markets (IoSM) study dives into the market dynamics and challenges shaping this nascent industry and its future potential. IoSM evaluates the value proposition of core IoS applications for different customer types, providing a global market revenue and addressable market demand forecast for each application in the 2017-2027 period. Two case studies on commercial GEO satellite life extension provide insight into the operator perspective in service-or-replace trade-offs, assessing when and why IoS is a compelling option.

An in-depth strategic market analysis and competitive assessment of the main industry players complement demand and revenue forecasts to provide a comprehensive view of this emerging market. NSR’s IoSM is a must-have report for emerging in-orbit service providers estimating their market potential, satellite manufacturers gauging the impact of this new capability, and satellite operators seeking to understand novel options in fleet management.

Bottom Line: How does NSR see the In-orbit Servicing market developing and evolving in the next 10 years for each type of service and type of operator?
