The space sensors and actuators market is projected to grow from USD 2.7 Billion in 2022 to USD 4.9 Billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 12.7% from 2022 to 2027. Increasing development of radiation-hardened electro-optical space sensors, demand for electro hydrostatic actuators in space applications, use of CMOS image sensors for Earth observation, focus on reducing cost of space sensors, use of solar sensors for deep-space missions, demand for small & smart actuators for space robotic missions, are major drivers for the growth of this market.

The state of technology within the space industry is evolving rapidly. On the one hand, improvements in sensors and other technologies and innovations such as the small satellite architecture and manufacturing of sensors using 3D printers are driving down costs. On the other hand, more sensors and a greater diversity of sensor types mean greater spatial resolution, higher temporal cadence, and richer spectral coverage. This combination of decreased cost and increased capabilities opens new use cases, industries, and applications for businesses. There are significant ongoing investments in telecommunications, navigation, and Earth observation applications. It is not just the global superpowers and multinationals that have access to space and related services, but also emerging countries and startups.

“Based on End User, the commercial segment is expected to lead the space sensors and actuators market from 2022 to 2027.”
Space exploration is an ideal investment option for private players to increase their exploration activities in space. The commercial segment has been further classified into the NewSpace industry, satellite operators & owners, space robotic solution providers, space exploration companies, and satellite and launch vehicle manufacturers. For instance, in October 2022, SpaceX announced the successful launch of 53 Starlink satellites, boosting its internet-beaming space network to 3,558 satellites. Additionally, on December, 2022, OneWeb Satellites, a joint venture between OneWeb, British Government and Airbus Defense and Space to design and manufacture satellites, launched around 40 satellites for the OneWeb constellation from Kennedy Space Center, US.

“Based on platform, the satellite segment is estimated to lead the space sensors and actuators market from 2022 to 2027.”
Based on platform, satellite segment is estimated to lead the space sensors and actuators market from 2022 to 2027 and is projected to grow further. Satellites carry a variety of sensors measuring bio-geophysical parameters such as sea surface temperature, nitrogen dioxide or other atmospheric pollutants, winds, aerosols, and biomass. These parameters can be evaluated through statistical and spectral analysis techniques. Satellites require swift movement for effective space operation. This swift movement is achieved by the actuators that provide a high torque control capacity. Venture Mfg. is one of the manufacturers of different types of linear actuators for satellite applications

“The North America region is estimated to account for the largest share of Space sensors and actuators market in 2022.”
Based on region, North America is expected to lead the space sensors and actuators market from 2022 to 2027. There is strong political support in North America for adoption of advanced satellites. Another key factor fueling the growth of the space sensors and actuators market in the region is that a large number of leading developers of space sensors and actuators are concentrated in North America, with clear policies laid out for dealing with government agencies on defense matters. The satellite industry of North America is the largest in the world.
