The accessible Total Addressable Market (TAM) for Intuitive Machines is approximately $120 billion over the next decade, with approximately $105 billion in lunar services (2021-2030), according to the 2022 Moon Markets Analysis by Northern Sky Research (NSR), and approximately $14 billion in earth orbital services (2022-2031), according to NSR’s IoSM reports in 2021 and 2022.
Satellite Life Extension is Largest Global Market, but Space Situational Awareness and Active Debris Removal Also Show Upside Potential Cambridge, MA– February 15th, 2022- In its 5th year, NSR’s first to market In-Orbit Services: Satellite Servicing, ADR and SSA, 5th Edition (IoSM5) forecasts $14.3 Billion in IoSM revenue, driven by Life Extension, generating $4.7 Billion through 2031. As.
MEV-2 is also not moving its satellite to a different orbit like MEV-1 did; instead it will act as a new engine and fuel tank to extend the spacecraft’s life. Demand for GEO life extension missions will grow to 75 satellites by 2030, according to a recent Northern Sky Research (NSR) forecast, representing a $3.2.
Last month, Spaceflight Inc. launched 16 payloads on board its Orbital Transfer Vehicle (OTV), Sherpa-FX-1 on a SpaceX rocket to deliver them to a precise orbits, a first in LEO SSO orbit. And soon, a 2nd MEV from Northrop Grumman will latch on the Intelsat 10-02, solidifying the In-Orbit Servicing Market for Life Extension missions.
A report by Northern Sky Research (NSR) forecasts that in orbit satellite servicing could be a cumulative $4.5 billion business by 2028. These ‘space tugs’ (more officially called ‘Life Extension Vehicles’ or In-Orbit servicing’) are planned to be launched in order to ‘rescue’ a failing satellite.
