A satellite bus, also known as a spacecraft bus, refers to the structural body and primary system of a satellite comprising power, temperature control, and directional thrusters. It also consists of a life support subsystem for human-crewed missions. It provides control of the satellite and support services to the mission payload. At present, there is a considerable rise in the use of satellites for navigation, communication, and climate and environment monitoring, which is positively influencing the requirement for satellite buses across the globe.

Satellite Bus Market Trends:
Increasing investments in space programs by governments of numerous countries around the world currently represents one of the key factors bolstering the growth of the market. Moreover, satellites can detect underground water and mineral sources, monitor the transfer of nutrients and contaminants from land into waterways, and measure land and water temperatures, the growth of algae in seas, and the erosion of topsoil from land. They can also efficiently track large-scale infrastructures like fuel pipelines that need to be checked for leaks, which would require enormous hours of land- or air-based inspection. Besides this, satellites allow meteorologists to monitor the weather globally, enabling them to follow the effects of phenomena like volcanic eruptions. This is creating a positive outlook for the market. Nowadays, satellite buses can accommodate reconfigurable payloads, smart power systems, and onboard propulsion technologies, which is also impelling the market growth. Furthermore, satellite launch costs are reducing on account of improvements in reusable rockets and the rising utilization of flexible launch sites. This, coupled with the increasing number of satellites launches worldwide, is anticipated to facilitate the growth of the market.
