A space launch vehicle or carrier rocket is a rocket propelled vehicle used to carry a payload from Earth's surface to space, usually to Earth orbit or beyond. A space launch system includes the launch vehicle, launch pad, vehicle assembly and fuelling systems, range safety, and other related infrastructure. The global space launch market is dominated by companies based in the United States, China and European Union. A number of firms in the US, China and EU are taking steps towards debut suborbital and orbital launches, while also attracting new funding.

Market Forecast’s latest report “Global Space Launch Systems - Market & Technology to 2027” examines, analyzes, and predicts the evolution of launch system technologies, markets, and outlays (expenditures) over the next 8 years – 2019 -2027 in the space industry.  It also examines space launch markets geographically, focusing on the top 95% of global markets, in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

Throughout the report we show how space launch vehicles are used today to add real value. To provide the most thorough and realistic forecast, this report provides a twin-scenario analysis, including “steady state”, emergence of new space launch vehicle technology.

In this report we have classified the space launch system industry under 5 major groups. We will research these 5 major group and also provide forecast figures from 2019 – 2027. These are:
