Sub-Orbital Transportation and Space Tourism Market
Currently, the space industry is focusing on developing technologies, platforms as well as spaceports that will enable space transportation. Sub-orbital flights, including space tourism, have gathered significant interest from the space sector as well as individuals who want to travel to space. Several companies such as Virgin Galactic, Blue Origin, Space Adventures, PD AeroSpace, LTD, Space Perspective, and Zero Gravity Corporation are focusing on developing platforms that will enable space tourism. The current challenge is to make space trips cheaper and thus more accessible to the public.
One of the major technologies that the industry is focusing on is the reusability of space systems such as suborbital or orbital reusable vehicles. The reusable systems allow the companies to reduce costs as well as operate the system for several missions. The developments of the players in the market showcase that this market has the potential to have immense growth in the upcoming years.
Sub-Orbital Transportation and Space Tourism Market by Vehicle Types
The sub-orbital transportation and space tourism market has been segmented based on various flight vehicle types, including sub-orbital reusable vehicle, high-altitude balloon, and parabolic aircraft. The sub-orbital reusable vehicles segment is expected to lead the sub-orbital transportation and space tourism market. The growth of this segment is attributed to the growing number of emerging companies involved in developing such reusable vehicles that will carry out sub-orbital transportation.
Sub-Orbital Transportation and Space Tourism Market by End User
The sub-orbital transportation and space tourism market has been segmented based on end users, including commercial, military, and government. The government end-user segment is anticipated to dominate the sub-orbital transportation and space tourism market. The factors contributing to this growth are the increasing number of partnerships and contracts that government agencies are forming with commercial players for several sub-orbital transportation applications.
Sub-Orbital Transportation and Space Tourism Market by Region
The sub-orbital transportation and space tourism market has been segmented based on region, including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest-of-the-World. North America is expected to dominate the global sub-orbital transportation and space tourism market during the forecast period. The number of growing successful demonstrations and test flights carried out by key players in this market has created an opportunity not only for them but also for other players who want to enter the market. Apart from this, these successful demonstrations have proven the viability of these systems and may push these companies to commercialize their product offerings. Additionally, several spaceports, such as the West Texas Launch Site and Spaceport America launch site, which support sub-orbital spaceflights, are also expected to boost the sub-orbital transportation and space tourism operations, which in turn will drive the market growth.
