The satellite industry is observing a steady uptake of all-electric satellites as established operators prefer these platforms for their new and replacement missions. While it is not a complete migration, the rise in uptake of electric propulsion capabilities at the satellite platform level is resulting in a mix of conventional, hybrid, and all-electric satellites. All-electric satellites represent a new segment of satellites that offer extended mission times along with enhanced efficiencies. They also weigh less compared to conventional satellites; this results in reduced launch costs for the satellite operator.

The migration to all-electric platforms is clear but the market is evolving to include a mix of conventional, hybrid, and all-electric platforms. There are satellite platforms which offer the all-electric option to the customer; the market is observing the development of exclusive all-electric platforms. While the market has not reached the stage where the all-electric option is a strong component of the mainstream commercial satellites segment, developments in this direction are progressing steadily. With the option of low-weight and extended mission lives capturing operators’ attention, the market is set to observe more operators preferring all-electric options as part of their future and existing missions. It remains to be seen if the satellite market will collectively move towards an all-electric trend. However, the need for cost-effective and efficient missions is already driving customers and manufacturers towards all-electric options. This study aims to cover the all-electric trend and its impact on the future of the satellite industry.

This study covers the qualitative discussion of the key aspects of all-electric satellites, discussing the recent launches, advantages, disadvantages and opportunities evolving out of this Mega Trend. The study presents an overview of the all-electric satellite market while discussing the relevant factors for growth, opportunities, trend, and action points for relevant industry participants.
